Holy shit I remember these. They were not popular.

I had a few. One was a knight that turned into an eagle and the other was a wizard that turned into a bear.

Oh man, I had some of these as a kid and loved them.....they were *kind* of a rip off of Visionaries, but cooler I think.
Given that toys take maybe half a year of planning and production before they're brought to market, it's hard to say who ripped off who, if at all. Hologram stickers were just another big 80s thing.

That first second was like watching the last half of the Tom Baker run all over again.

Look at how angry those kids at the start are.

I had these AND Visionaries.
Clearly I lived a privileged childhood.

Pastor T.B. Joshua based his entire ministry off this toy line.

Those kids spent a lot of time lovingly setting up those little rocks.

I wonder how many takes 0:19-0:21 took.

My little sister got me one of these as a birthday present. I had grown out of action figures by then, but she was only six at the time and probably only had five bucks to spend.
It was kind of neat, but I seem to recall you needed a really intense light to see it properly.

I miss my visionaries toy. Never heard of these until now though.

Huh, so that's what the weird faceless hologram guy I had was from. Incidentally, for greater spooookiness their weapons glowed in the dark, even though you needed a good light source to see the holograms. I never saw a Visionaries toy in my life.
Actually, at one point I had three of these guys: the lion who's dyin' here, a mummy with snakes on everything, and a Thor knockoff. The snake mummy and not-Thor had helmets made of weird flimsy rubber, and only the mummy's ever stayed on because it was a cobra hood that fit over his whole head (and looked kinda badass).
