Cindarr was the last

Cindarr was the last Visionaries figure I bought when I got back into collecting in 2004. I never got around to completing the set with Mortdredd and the Sky Claw.
''Horn of Unicorn, claw of Dragon'', was a good episode with Cindarr and Lexor.

Tempting LOL, but no thank

Tempting LOL, but no thank you. I have given up collecting and haven't added anything to my collection in about a year......also if I got Mortdred I would have to try and get all the others back for the complete collection. I seen the Skyclaw review.

"In the 80's having a figure

"In the 80's having a figure with more than 5 points of articulation was a revelation, you 90's kids don't know how lucky you were!"

Micronauts and Microman (which GI Joe ARAH borrowed their articulation design and scale from) had MORE articulation than any of these during the 70s and even before Star Wars came along,, thanks to Takara's toy inventor Iwakichi Ogawa, creator of the "o-ring" and 3 3/4" (or more precisely, the 10cm) action figure format back in Japan in 1974 (resized and redesigned from the Hasbro 12" GI Joe-based Henshin Cyborg series, so it goes full circle, too!). Five points of articulation? Well let's see...

Neck ball joint.
2 rotating swivel shoulders.
2 swivel elbows
2 rotating wrist cuffs
2 ball jointed wrists
1 O-ring articulated waist
2 ball jointed hips
2 swivel jointed knees
2 rotating spats/ankle "cuffs"
2 ball jointed ankles

The rotating cuffs are somewhat redundant as they are used to attach the ball joints to the limbs but even if we don't count those, we're talking 16 points of articulation on a 3 3/4" series of figures from the SEVENTIES. :D

You kids keep getting on my damn lawn... ;)
