Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers (Galoob)



Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers
Galoob
1986

Tracking down Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers toys is kind of a pain. Just saying. They're really hard to come by, and the horses - Sheesh. Forget about it. You would think that a toy based on a cartoon that ran for sixty-five episodes would have toys that were a little more commonplace on secondary markets.

The cartoon ran in syndication from 1986 through 1989, and as we mentioned contained a total of sixty-five episodes. The series combined a sci-fi and western theme together, and is credited as being one of the first anime style animated shows to air in America. At the time, the series was considered quite revolutionary for its time.

To help build the momentum of the series, Galoob produced a small line of toys. Six figures, three horses, and one accessory rounded out the entire line of action figures. In addition, there were two toy guns produced for kids to run around and blast each other with. Unfortunately the line was not too successful, and was cancelled shortly thereafter.

Beyond that there's not much to say, so we'll finish this post off with what most of you are here to see; the photos.

I never completed the set but I remember find 2 of thee horses at Woolworth and begins super excited. I had a friend who's mom worked at Galoob and helped me get the full set of defenders of the earth but was no help at all on this line lol

    1. Nice! A "man" on the inside to help out! That's always a nice connection to have.
