    glow in the dark toys

    Alright guys and gals,
    I need to tap into the great collective that is the .org.

    The other day I was looking at my MOTUC Scare Glow and thinking to myself. "man, glow in the dark toys are awesome."

    So, I want to start a collection of glow in the dark toys!

    Now I know there is a huuuuuuuuuge variety of stuff, like figures that came with GITD weapons, paint apps, etc.

    At this point, I'd like to start with Figures.

    so, do you know of any?

    Right now off the top of my head i can think of:

    Vintage Scare Glow
    Classics Scare Glow
    Kenner Night Fighter Robocop
    Neca Night Fighter Robocop

    and that's about it.

    OK GO!

    Bratzillaz has a wave of 5 GITD beach dolls. QC is a bit bad though- MGA used the same molds they use for the standard dolls and the plastic cures differently, leaving loose parts. But if you invest in proper doll stands, and maybe glue magnets to their shoes, they stand fine. Just get them on Amazon where that line is usually on sale, they're only $2 cheaper than the deluxe dolls at retail.

    MAC made a GITD Lady Death which you can find relatively cheap, since 90s toys aren't worth much.

    heerotoysmaker produced a few clear plastic Transformers WSTs which glow- Optimus Prime, Ultra Magnus, and the 4 jets.

    Invest in a proper blacklight, they'll illuminate the toys better than letting them charge under a bulb.

    Bio-glow swamp thing. I have a loose one. Brilliant glow.
    Lady Death. I have MOC, wild-looking figure.
    Robocop
    Terminator endoskeleton - he doesn't glow very well, frankly.

    Glowing predator figure from kenner. I don't have that one; I think I had it back in the 90's.

    The same people that made the GITD Lady Death also released a GITD Lady Demon and GITD Cremator. MTV had a glow in the dark radioactive Beavis figure and I'm pretty sure there was an Endoglow Terminator figure that glows in the dark too. **Edit, Phil beat me on that one

    There is a Mezco Mumm-Ra that glows, but I think it was some type of exclusive.

    - - - Updated - - -

    I think the Evil Ernie figure also glows. Not sure. I didn't bother with that one.

    Terminator got covered in a lot of black paint for some reason, which made it less effective. I think there may have been other 90s indie comic big boob female character toys that glowed- those companies loved getting as much use out of their molds as possible.

    There were 5 Ghostbusters that glowed too- since Louis Tully got a bigger role in the sequel and cartoon, he got toys. They go for hideous amounts of cash though. I think the 90s Ghost Rider line relied on it as a line-wide gimmick. Duke "not the guy who took forever" Nukem from Captain Planet also glows. Then again, the Octabrain from the Duke "the guy who did take forever" Nukem Resaurus line had GITD slime.

    There's actually some glowing spider-man figures at retail right now. But they really don't look like anything. I haven't touched 'em.

    Good call on Ghost Rider

    Neca's robocop is absolutely brilliant if you let him sit in the sun for a few minutes

    There's an awesome glow-in-the-dark Predator figure in the Kenner line!

    I see NightFire RoboCop was also mentioned. There's also NECA's updated version. Both are awesome!

    If you like Blind Bag toys, check out the Predasuars: DNA Fusion figures. They are Dinosaurs, and their TEETH are GITD. So cool!

    awesome to all! after I posted this I went to the ebays and searched "glow figure"

    That gave a good insight to whats out there.

    thanks diosoth on the blacklight idea.

    I really thought there would be some 90's line with a GITD gimmick, something like Skeleton Warriors...

    But I guess not.

    So I think to start I'm going to try to grab:

    Robocop
    Duke Nukem
    Toy Biz Ghost Rider line
    Predator

    Once I get a decent collection, I'll post pics!

    Thanks again.

    If you get a blacklight, you're not just limited to GITD toys as some plastics will illuminate quite bright under blacklight. Unfortunately, it can be hard to determine what does and does not unless you have a blacklight turned on.

    Definitely like G-i-D figures too.
    I'd definitely recommend the Kind of the Dead from Lord of the Rings. He can be found cheap.
    Also, the **** Glow in the dark figures are cool.

    There's a Glow-In-The-Dark Undertaker figure from Jakks. It might have been a ToyFare exclusive.

    Doubt you would be interested, but there are tons of awesome Japanese vinyl toys that are GID.

    Forgetting a big one here, guys... Glimmer and Sweet Bee from the vintage Princess of Power line both have glow-in-the-dark features.

    Also, check out Hasbro's (Kenner's?) Moondreamers line...the hair on every doll glows, as do parts of their outfits, including their shoes!

    Remco's monsters glow too, don't they?

    Mego (or at least, the repros from EMCEE) Monsters have glowing hands.

    I've racked my brain into near head trauma, but that's all I can come up with for now. Good luck!
