need a quick response for eighties toy and tv question.

first, i got me 3 toy figures - they is the ugliest toys i have ever seen,

the first is some kind of freaky doctor, with a orange head, thing at the back of his head, which opens his mouth, and you can move his tongue with this leaver, he's blue, skinny arms, and has a tail, the second is like a skinny big purple fly, with red claws, and weapons attached to arms, has red wings and they move with a clip, the third - a daft looking long blue armed thing, one orange hand, the other blue, silver glittery chest, and some type of mole face, tree trunk grey legs..

who are these dudes? they are stamped 1982 strongin / mayem intl for revell in hong kong

i'm thinking a sellin', any ideas on prices for these?

second, there was a tv programme in 80s that had shaking plants, and contestants put these credit / disk things into a shute, and it shot up the shute, that's all i remember, what was this show?

anyone home?

"Hello? Hello, anybody home? Think McFly, think!"

Sorry, couldn't resist that one! ;D

As for the toys, I'm not sure. And gosh dangit, I should know the TV one, but that's slipping my mind as well too. Is there a chance it could be Remote Control, which used to air on MTV in the late 80's?

They did some stuff like that sometimes, or had food fights (this was featured on VH1's I Love the 80's "1987" episode, which reminded me of it all over again).
