Bronze Bombers (Olmec Toys)

1988

"They stand for justice, and they never lose!" That was the tagline of Olmec Toy's Bronze Bombers line in 1988.

The figures had a clear distinction to Hasbro's G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero line, and should have - A lot of them were produced using the same molds of certain figures, and art work for the cardbacks. However, unlike G.I. Joe, Bronze Bombers failed to find a foothold in toy isles, and disappeared after just twelve figures and two vehicles.

Though the card backs were done in black and white, they mimicked the style of Joes right down to a file card for the figure inside.

The series was rounded out with two vehicles that came packed with one of the previously released figures above. An orange ATV style vehicle was planned and advertised on the back, but doesn't appear to have ever been released.

In 1997, Olmec Toys made a much more popular comeback with the twelve pack of Bronze Bombers figures they released. Granted it still wasn't the likes of popularity that Hasbro had found with their G.I. Joe line.

  1. That 12 pack was a toys r us exclusive and sold for maybe $15 new and it now worth a pretty penny on the aftermarket. They used 80's GI JOE molds with some new heads.
