Subject: Need help ID-ing two 80's toy series

Written By: Jabov on 3/7/2001 at 6:59 p.m.

There are two types of action figures that I used to have in the 80's, but I can't remember what either was called, so if you know please tell me.

The first came from around '85 and '86 I think. They were little two inch tall plastic men in astronaut type suits. They had space shuttles and moon rover type vehicles. The gimmick was that the figures had magnets in their feet so you could stick them to the fridge and stuff. The vehicles also had little magnetized cranes and cargo boxes.

The other toys I'm trying to ID were also little two inch sized figures from around '89. They had human bodies, but the heads of bears and deer and stuff. And on their chests, they had little hologram symbols of the elements like fire, water, wind etc. You held a finger on the symbol and the picture would show up from getting warm.

If you know what either of these toys were called, please tell me so I can start tracking them down.
