ZICA Toys is a company with two goals in mind, to make high quality, retro style toys and action figures that will tap into the feelings of nostalgia that most vintage toy collectors have, and to have a lot of fun doing it. Craig Owen, the owner of ZICA Toys, grew up during the 70’s and spent countless hours playing with some of the best toys of that era, especially MEGO figures. As both a fan and collector of 8” and 3 ¾“ action figures, Craig’s plans for ZICA Toys already include two licensed properties that will be done in these formats.
Figures based on the Buck Rogers television series which aired from 1979 to 1981 will be ZICA Toys first foray into the 8" scale action figure market. Characters planned for series one are Buck Rogers, Killer Kane, Hawk, Tigerman, and Draconian guard. The figures will made using the new Z-Body which offers improved articulation and customization features over the original MEGO body.
The Midnightmen, a newly developed comic book by Third Floor Productions, will be ZICA Toys first foray into the 3 ¾“ action figure market. Characters planned for the first series are Dax Northender and Thule Kommando.
