Mix 'N' Match

Here is a nice collection of Galaxy Fighters mixed with Masters of the Universe (MOTU) stuff. The figures all use the repainted bodies of MOTU figures, but the heads have been replaced with Fighter heads. On the far left is the Fighter Batoon, which was a variation on Baltard. On the Far right is the Fighter, and also Warrior, Baltard. The snake head comes from Kobraa, who was a copy of the Warrior Sahak, and the lizard head is from the Fighter Iguana.

Yet another GW line.

Here is another toy-line that used the name Galaxy Warriors. This figure uses a lesser quality copy of the original Galaxy Warriors body with some changes made to the the figures shorts. The arms have been shrunk and the head is new, though it bears a slight resemblance to Triton. As with other toy-lines that use the name "Galaxy Warriors", this line should not be considered part of the original Galaxy Warriors, which are the subject of this site. This figure would look very out-of-place among the original line, and it doesn't exude the same mood or feel as the original barbarian-style figures.
   As far as I know, this was not made by Sungold, but it is interesting that the figure has a subtitle: "The Last Battle". This is interesting because Sungold produced a toy-line with the long and awesome title Galaxy Warrior, End of Time, the Last Battle.

Stubborn Warriors!

Here are some Galaxy Warriors knock-offs made of solid rubber. They are about the size of normal GWs but have no articulation, except for the Spikes figure that appears to have movable arms. The figures have no markings on them to tell us who made them or where they were made.

4 Warriors

A collection of four Galaxy Warriors. From Left to Right: Baltard, Tiger Man, Dragoon, Sahak.

Looking at the Backs of the figures provides us with a little bit of information (see image below). The manufacturing stamps on the figures can help us differentiate between the various releases of the figures. The "Sungold: Made in Hong Kong" stamp appears on the right legs of Baltard and Sahak, signifying they are original Version One Warriors. Tiger Man and Dragoon have a very simplified stamp on their backs that only reads: "Sungold".

The simplified stamp on the back might indicate that these two were released in the later re-release of the line under the name Freedom Fighters. [For more information on the differences between what I call Version One and Version Two Galaxy Warriors, please see What Are The Galaxy Warriors?]

June Updates

Just made a big update to the Horse's page including some really fascinating new images.
Tiger: New picture added.
Huk: New picture added with blister card variant.

End of Time, The Last Battle by Sungold

Sungold's bizarre "Galaxy Warrior" line.

Do NOT confuse the Galaxy Warriors with Galaxy Warrior: End of Time, The Last Battle. They are two different toy-lines made by the same company.

These guys might have been part of Sungold's "last hurrah" as a company before they disappeared. They use a poor quality version of the original GW body sculpt, and they have really strange heads. They came with helmets, which is cool I guess, but they are silly in appearance and lack the raw barbaric fierceness of the original Galaxy Warriors line. The coolest thing about these figures is the extremely long title given to their toy-line.
