Complimentary Vehicles and Play Sets for Power Lords

Postby Roland of Gilead » Fri Sep 29, 2017 10:54 am

I have been looking at the vehicles and creatures from the original line and trying to bring that into the modern collection. While I would love to adapt the vintage Power Ship, Power Patroller, or Volcan Rock, they're just way out of my price range.

Are there any suggestions for current or vintage toys that can be reworked into the Power Lords 4" line? I have been looking seriously at some Animal Planet submarine toys and the Mustafar playset from Star Wars Revenge of the Sith.

What else could work well?

Animal Planet stuff is a good way to go. Sand 'em down and repaint to your heart's content. I believe that stuff is still Chap Mei product, and most of what they put out is pretty decent on some level. The Lanard stuff is also Chap Mei, so that means the Kong Skull Island toys. But yeah, maybe get on eBay and search for Chap Mei. I need to get to work, but lemme do a quick search. *taps keyboard* Hmm... not a ton of Space Quest stuff is showing up, but there's a bit. I know it exists out there somewhere.

I've found that many of the diving themed vehicles are unique enough to be spacecraft as well.

I picked up a True Heroes Jetski that I think will work great as an air speeder for my Power Soldiers.

I also think that this Animal Planet submarine could be a sweet homage to the original Flash Gordon with just a bit of paint.

Good thinking. Be sure to post photos of what you come up with.

Great minds! I picked up the Animal Planet sub weeks ago and tweaked it a bit for PL. Will post pics soon!

I was at TRU the other day and saw they have a new version of it out in a different color too.

Yes! They have a new Red one. What I'd love to do is repaint one in a metallic silver because it reminds me so much of the old Flash Gordon ship design.
