Action Figure Insider has posted a great article over on their blog about how the designers of Kenner’s Robin Hood line borrowed many ideas from other toy lines when creating the action figures and play sets. Amazing to see how much influence the Super Powers line had on it. Definitely a fun read.
This also reminds me of an article Ron Salvatore wrote a while back over on the Star Wars Collector’s Archive. His article focused on the many different Star Wars related toys that were created from older Kenner toy lines, and the toys that were later created using Star Wars toys.
