Sky Commanders Archive

Enter a world of endless mountains, vast gorges, and furious winds. This is the high frontier. A group of heroes called the Sky Commanders protect this land from the evil General Plague and his band of Raiders. From their mobile base, Vector Command, the Sky Commanders defend themselves from the Raiderís attacks. Due to the treacherous conditions it is difficult to fly. The preferred mode of transportation is via cable or track. Each side has special vehicles that travel on these cables and each vehicle is designed for particular kinds of missions or conditions.

Kenner had great plans for Sky Commanders. This is not surprising as these were awesome toys. What kid would not want to string up ziplines all over his room and race vehicles down them? Sadly, the downturn in the economy and the aging demographic doomed the series, along with many other lines from the late 80s. This led Kenner to scrap an entire second series of Sky Commanders toys. These toys were even more action packed than the orignal series. They now featured Skygrip adhesion system which would you could use to rescue your figures from the abyss. They also had TRIG clamps that would stop your vehicles from slaming into the wall after a long run. Here are pictures of many of the unreleased items.
