Micronauts

JJ Abrams Looking at Micronauts

 

The line consisted of 3.75-inch tall action figures, vehicles,  robots, play sets, and accessories which used a universal, five millimeter inter-connective design. Although deemed a success, Mego cancelled the Micronauts line in 1980.

The toys were also turned into comic books published Marvel Comics, Image Comics, and Devil's Due Publishing. Their first comic appearance was in "Micronauts #1" by Marvel in January, 1979.

Abrams told the newspaper that those who doubt whether a board game or science-fiction toy can become stars, will be proven wrong.

"Sometimes, when someone is not a celebrity and you are casting them in a role, everyone who is in a seat of authority voices questions about that actor's talent, sex appeal, looks, ability — their everything," he says. "But then they get the role, and suddenly they are on the cover of every magazine, and nobody questions those things again. In retrospect, everyone says, 'Of course that person is a star.'"
