Did You Know?


The Program was part of a Toy-Tie in created by Mattel. The toys consisted of action figures of all the major characters and Captain Power's and Lord Dread's ships. The Ships had the ability to pick up infra-red signals from glowing panels on enemy characters and thus score hits, as well as receive damage hits from enemy fire. When a players ship sustained enough simulated damage the canopy would fly open ejecting the action figure contained within. There were also crossover animated episodes that were packaged with the electronic fighter ships that had the same ability. Despite the interactivity of the toys the series was too expensive to continue production and with dropping sales of Captain Power toys the series and toys were scrapped. See more »

Now THIS brings back memories
28 May 2003 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Wow, this is older than I thought. I tried tracking down this show by looking up people who were in it, and for some reason I thought Colm Meaney played Hawk Masterson. Anyways, I finally did a search for "project new order" which was basically the only thing I remember of this show. I finally found out that the title was Captain Power.

Anyways, I thought this was a great show, but the ending kind of left you hanging, I mean I remember Power saying "project new order is finished" but the bad-guy and his computer orb were still alive, right? I dunno, it was a weird show, but it was cool.
