The Mini-Rig concepts are cool. Funny how they kitbash things. It's not much different than some of us customizers do today when building things for dioramas.

Wow! That would have sucked BIG TIME! I think that might would have killed the line. Don't get me wrong, the MASK toys were fantastic, especially the vehicles. But dang, Star Wars? NO SIR!
I'm sure part of their reasoning was that more environments, playsets and vehicles could be produced at much lower price points but I still don't think it would pan out well. Makes me glad the line ended as it did.
X-Wing Luke - I actually had that figure! It was like some Playschool figure that came with some space ship... anybody else remember that guy? He may not have been exactly like that, but I do remember the head and arms.
I think he may be a kit-bash using this Fisher Price Adventure Figure.
