Another fun discovery in the ’86 Sears Canada catalogue is a page dedicated to Dragon Force. A generic line of Martial Arts heroes by Lanard Toys. Despite my lifelong obsession with Martial Arts, I have no memory of this line. Probably because at the time, I was trying to buy actual ninja weapons (I was a far less dorky Napolean Dynamite at this age).
Dragon Force looks like a fun toy line which includes Ninjas, Kung Fu and Karate Masters, and even female characters. They even have their own assault vehicle and a machine gun? Ok, that one seems counterintuitive.
