GUTS! Action Figures from Mattel

GUTS!

It’s always good fun browsing through old toy catalogues, especially when you find something that you’ve not heard of before. The GUTS! toy line in the image above, found at the always cool Orange Slime website, is one such find.

Released in 1986, these action figures failed to sell in high volume against competitors like M.U.S.C.L.E. and Battle Beasts, and so died out. I think they look really good, and there is an impressive number of models, split between ninja’s and army troops.

For more information, there is a great article over on the X-Entertainment website.
