Lords of Wind; Barons Modrex and Ee-lon

As mentioned in an earlier post, replicant01 and I decided to commission some art of the five Lords of Wind, the evil antagonists of the rebel Air Raiders. The first three we did were Emperor Aerozar, Baron Jolt and Sunder. Next we moved on to Barons Modrex and Ee-lon. Modrex was a little difficult as…… Continue reading Lords of Wind; Barons Modrex and Ee-lon

Don’t Fear the Reaper!

One of my favorite toys is the Man-O-War. How could you not love this massive tank that’s bristling with guns, cannons and all sorts of neat gimmicks like the floating orb sensor and the scout car that launches from below? It’s an amazing vehicle and certainly one-of-a-kind. It always interested me that there wasn’t a…… Continue reading Don’t Fear the Reaper!

Unfortunately the toys didn’t last long enough to expand into lunch boxes, puzzles, magnets and other merchandise that would have required a… Continue reading The Lords of the Winds

Let the Battle Begin!

Another thanks to replicant01 (from LittleRubberGuys.com board) who shared an awesome proof he bought off of ebay years ago. It’s a battle between the rebel Air Raiders and the evil Tyrants with the Dragonwind and Thunderhammer as the primary focus of the piece. I’ve never seen it before so I’m excited to share it. One…… Continue reading Let the Battle Begin!

Stickers Archive

I’ve been super excited to create a library for the stickers for the Air Raiders toyline. This has proven to be much harder than I thought. Most pictures I find online are low resolution, half-covered and/or the stickers are curled and folded. So I’m updating my original idea. I’m still going to try and have…… Continue reading Stickers Archive
