was another animated series that Kenner produced action figures
for. The cartoon aired in 1987 and did not last very long. The
premise of the series revolved around the battles between the
good guys (Sky Commanders), and the bad guys (the Raiders). On
a new, unstable continent in the South Pacific, the two groups
fight for control of a powerful element called Phaeta Seven.
The Raiders, led by the evil General Lucas Plague, are dead set
on harnessing the elementís power in order to rule the world.
General Mike Summit, and his group of Sky Commanders, must do
whatever it takes to prevent that from happening. Because of
the instability of the planet, and the menagerie of evil
creatures that were spawned by Phaeta Seven, travel from place
to place was done by laser cables (glorified zip lines).
Commanders action figures came out in 1987. Each action figure
came with laser cable backpacks, a zip line, and hooks to hook
the string. Some characters came in bigger sets that had
special features, such as zip line carriers that fired missiles.
Sky Commander Characters included Rex Kling, Commander Summit,
Kreeg, Books Baxter, Raider Rath, Mordax, Jim Stryker, Spider
Reilly, and others.
