One of the things I love about collecting toys is just how many toy lines there are to chase. Some have unbroken runs of decadres and are still around and show no signs of vanishing anytime soon. But then there are the others that, for one glorious Christmas were THE toys to have and then disappeared from shelves, leaving nothing but a few worn, now-vintage figures and a slew of amazing memories in the minds of collectors.
The Visionaries (Knights of the Magical Light) were one such property. Although supported by an animated series (from Sunbow, the GI Joe: A Real American Hero people) the toys didn't fare too well at retail and were cancelled before their second wave could be released. Which is a shame, as the figures were actually a lot of fun.
Now two UK-based collectors, Christopher Ibbitt and Gemma Tovee have launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund their proposed Collector Guide covering the entire figure run. Go check it out for yourself and help fund what's shaping up to be a very cool-looking publication!
