What a perfect month to discuss the Super Naturals!
I never owned any of the Super Naturals, but I remember this commercial like it was yesterday. I at least was lucky enough to play with a few of the figures that my friends down the street owned (they seemed to own every toy I wished I did).
Tonka produced the line and it debuted in 1987, but apparently never really caught on because there was no 1988 series. The main figures are pretty cool looking (Lionheart, Snakebite and Skull especially) but the ghostlings are kinda goofy. I don’t like the way the holograms show up because it’s like a totally different character inside the torso. The ghostlings look too similar to Jawas and those zombie dwarfs from Phantasm anyway.
Thanks to The Virtual Toy Chest for the images!
