Captain Power

Captain Power 80's Toys

The Captain Power line of Mattel toys was based on the 1987-1988 sci-fi show called Captain Power and the Soldiers of the Future.  The show was both live action and animated, and ran for 22 episodes.  Some of the Captain Power toys pictured were meant to interact with various portions of the TV series or recorded VHS versions.  For example, a kid could hold a jet, called the XT-7, up to the TV during the show, and fire at targets that went by.  Like Duckhunt the XT-7 interacted with the screen via a light gun.  Some of the tapes included episodes like Future Force Training, Bio-Dread Strike Mission, and Raid on Volcania.
