BraveStarr was a space Western animated television series that was created by Donald Kushner and Peter Locke. The original episodes aired from September 1987 to February 1988 in syndication.
However, in 1986, a year before the TV series premiered, Mattel released an action figure line based on the Filmation cartoon series. These figures were large for the time at nearly 8 inches tall and came in a windowed box with artwork at the top. Each figure had a unique action feature and was packaged with several accessories, as well as one or more Kerium nuggets.
The only eight figures produced in the series were; Col. Borobot, Deputy Fuzz, Handle Bar, Marshall Bravestarr, Outlaw Skuzz, Sand Storm, Tex Hex, and Thunder Stick. A second series was slated for release, but was cancelled shortly after the animated series was taken off the air from lack of public interest.
A few vehicles and playsets made their way to store shelves with the first and only series of figures. They included; Skull Walker, Thirty Thirty (who was technically a character), Stratacoach and Fort Kerium.
The Heroic Laser Fire Backpack and Evil Laser Fire Backpack which were released with the Marshall Bravestarr and Tex Hex figures were also packaged individually and sold as accessories. A two pack of the two figures was also released.
Sadly, not too many people remember the show itself, but truth be told, it wasn't all that bad. It just couldn't compete with the stronger cartoons that were running such as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, He-Man, ThunderC.A.T.S., G.I. Joe, and Transformers. Still for those who enjoy it, it is a true treasure of their childhood memories.
