Buck Rogers: Twiki

Buck Rogers Twiki figureHaving moved four times in the past six years, to say nothing of the trading and misplacing that kids engage in with their toys, I have a few “orphan” figures that recently turned up as I packed for my latest move. The first of these is Twiki (right), from Buck Rogers in the 25th Century. The 1979 updating of Buck Rogers catered to the younger audience with this diminutive robot, and thus Meco’s line of action figures included Twiki (with Dr. Theopolis represented by a flimsy sticker which is in surprisingly good shape on this figure). Other characters in the Buck Rogers line included Buck, Colonel Wilma Deering, Princess Ardala, Killer Kane, Emperor Draco and Tiger Man.
