1979 Kidco Catalog- Silver Warriors- Space Defenders
Kidco (a pretty logical name for a toy company) made some pretty unassuming toys during the 1970s, the most interesting items they produced in 1979 are not one but two different lines of Shogun Warriors inspired toys.
Sliver Warriors and Space Defenders are the things you find at toy shows or in lots and have no idea as to what they are. Hopefully, this catalog solves some childhood and/or toy collector mysteries
At 7 inches, the Space Defenders would tower over most action figures in 1979, save for Mego Superheroes.

The diecast five-inch Silver Warriors (an inspired name) would slip in quite easily with your SHOGUN Warriors.

PlaidStallions Toy-Ventures Magazine #2 is now available and it’s been called “not only an entertaining read, but it’s also an impeccable work of reference” by PopCult.

Thank you so much for this post. I had a couple of the Silver Warriors growing up and had totally forgotten about them.
