Lifeline was the sixth figure I covered at the beginning of this blog, back in 2011. I liked the character’s medic specialty, and he pretty much replaced Doc as my go-to medic in 1986. I did keep Doc’s cool stretcher around, though. Lifeline’s own accessories were quite impressive, featuring an oxygen mask and opening medical case.
I didn’t have any of the Tiger Force figures as a kid, since I was out of the toys by that point. However, I did sneak a look through the weekly Sunday Toys R Us sales ads back then. Yeah, remember that? I can’t remember the last time I saw a sales ad, much less bought a Sunday paper. I do remember that the photo setups were often quite well done in those ads. I’ve even posted one or two of them here.
