Great review! Awesome photos

Great review! Awesome photos and I love the esoteric choice of subject matter. I must admit, when I was a kid I thought Rock Lords were cool as hell. My child's mind would use them as spies against other Transformers. I mean, who suspects the rocks?

Wasn't there another girl in

Wasn't there another girl in the GoBots line? Crusher or Crasher or somesuch?

I's funny,typically one of the things you would want in a vintage robot figure is diecast metal,and you'll often hear people complain that today's Transformers are all plastic,but here's a case where the toy would be better without the metal! I mean,you've got a big diamond with a metal core?

There were a couple of

There were a couple of female gobots in the cartoon. Crasher(?)was the black racecar, but the toy she was based upon was not feminine in any way. There was another female rock lord, whom I covet.

Hahaha, back in 1999 when I discovered a thing called "EBay"...

...I went on a weird Rocklord-buying binge.

THIS was the one figure I just could not get.
I saw one, carded at a place that used to be in Clifton called The Outer Limits, but like most of their vintage action figures, she was an arm and a leg (which is funny, because most of their new Japanese toys were well-priced).

Yah, some of the Rocklord faces were butt-ugly. It was nice that there was a chick in the mix that didn't look horrible.

"There was another female rock lord, whom I covet."

There... was?

Aside from Solitaire, I never did manage to get the Japanese or UK transforming dinosaur combiner before my interest had faded.

other female rock lord

The other female rock lord is Saberstone, and she was one of the last two rock lords released. I want that dinosaur combiner, but it's always too much.

Rock Lords

I just found a Rock Lord at the thrift store about a month ago and I forgot about that line of toys and the feature film that went along with it. As much as I didn't like the line I do like this figure for all the reasons stated. Very cool that you own one, you seems to have all the figures I never got! ha ha

I love clear as a gimmick for figures and that fact that it's a not often produced female figure really is great.

Dankon!

I, too, liked the Rock Lords

I, too, liked the Rock Lords when I was little. Shows ya how much taste I have! :P

Nah, but this is a cool piece. Never got into the Jewel Lords, but I always admired them from afar.

Boring? only if "...Fighting to Survive!" is boring!

and now I'm reminded that I need to sneak over to ebay and load up on Remco Crystar figures and accessories before one of you toy hipsters beat me to it.

Lol. Crystar wasn't too well designed though.

I DID pick up some bright orange (not clear) Crystar magma enemy off eBay a few years ago though.

And yeah, it was when I was going through the Rocklords phase and was remembering other clear-figured toy lines like Jewel Lords.

Solitaire seems to enjoy

Solitaire seems to enjoy hanging out with Pharoid and Alice, I think as much as the rock lords were rather dumb, they do fit nicely around Microman/Micronauts and Henshin Cyborg action figures ^.^
