Dragon Force Ninja

One small… small… step above the generic 80′s rack figure would be this line of Remco and Norris Kommando compatible figures from the Lanard company. Dragon Force Ninja Dragonmaster figures came in at least three colors — black, white and red — and there was even a female version of at least the red scheme. Besides the ninja, Dragon Force also included Karate and Kung-Fu heroes.

I would give my left nut for that female figure…

In the realm of bargain and generic figures, the Lanard’s were actually pretty well put together, although lean on accessories.  A single sword is all they had, no oversized shuriken or outre chain weapons here.

The ninja had two headsculpts with varying hair paint. The Norris-knock-offs just looked like bear-porn stars. Note the bare feet hastily painted over in place of properly sculpted tabi.

  2. Thanks J.R. – and wow I don’t remember the 12″ guys at all from back then.

    There was a set of Mego-like ninja in a 9″-scale, came as a two-pack, one black/one white, with grey weapons. These were made well into the 2000s in fact. The 12″ ones you’re remembering mght be the same molds knocked-off in a larger size?

  3. Yes just found out those were by lht an Australian toy company back in the 80s! Now iam on a mad hunt for them lol! No I don’t recall those 9″ ninjas But id like to find them. What were they called and by who? Thanks!
