    Just noticed Toy Masters got a mention the other day in an interview with Roger Lay Jr. for a Star Trek website. He mentions it's in post-production, so maybe it isn't vaporware after all! :)

    It would be nice if this were true, but I'm afraid there were 65 individual segments made for each episode, so it looks like Warners screwed up the first five episodes.

    Hey, what about Filmation's Ghostbusters and Baldios? :)
