    Help, what's this toy?

    Back in the early to mid 1990s my brother and I went to toys r us and we both got these action figures. They were black stretchy figures who would stick to walls and stretch maybe 4-5 inches tall and they came with armor pieces that would snap on them. I had a knight I remember he came with an orange sword and one of his guantlets had a crossbow on it. My brother had the Ninja I don't remember alot about his other than the Ninja mask was black.
    Is anyone familiar with this toy line or have any clue as to what they were called.

    ANY HELP IS APPRECIATED, thank you

    Sounds like Tacky Stretchoid Warriors.

    Yes, there’s a thread for toy identification, but if there’s interest, we could edit this to be about this particular line. ( I don’t know that there will be, but the option stands.)

    I totally had one of these guys! I had the guy with the bulky gold helmet and the armored arms. I loved the crossbow arm bracer. I had those things long after the Tacky Stretchoid Warrior met an untimely end in a bicycle spoke....

    A few years ago I was also trying to figure out what these toys were called as I remembered having one, so I made a silly drawing of what I remembered and posted it here at the forums and you guys helped me identify the toy. Here's the old thread, lol:

    Now, the last couple of months I've been converting old family VHS and Video 8 tapes (which I hadn't seen in many years because I don't have a device where to play them anymore) into DVD in a store near where I live, and I just found footage from the day my parents gifted me this toy (and the others I mentioned on the old thread) while on vacations back in 1989. Here's a capture still from that video:
