“V” is for Lizard-like Alien Creatures

I really enjoyed the original TV mini series and show “V” back in the 80s. When the show was on I don’t even remember seeing any of the toys that were released. About a year ago I was driving somewhere and noticed a little run-down looking flea market (the best kind) on the corner of a small town square and did a quick U-turn and went inside. The first thing that caught my eye was a huge “Logan’s Run” movie poster signed by Michael York. I passed on that after noticing this large “V” action figure on the top shelf. I loved it and the nice old guy behind the counter immediately offered a lower price to me than what was on the sticker. He said the signature was by a cast member, Andrew Prine. Well I didn’t have any idea if that was legit or not, I just knew that for $10 I wanted this toy. I later looked up Mr. Prine on IMDB and he was indeed credited with the role of Steven. As well as many tv shows and movies including a couple of my favorites like “Grizzly” and “Amityville 2 the Possession”. The toy is is missing the human face that went over the lizard face. He has a button on the back that makes the long lizard tongue flick in and out.

I love retro toys, television, movies and just about anything from the 70s and 80s.I frequent flea markets, thrift shops, garage sales and auctions hoping to nab my next pop culture trophy.
