in the mid 80's there was a toy line that was just a few vehicles with each coming with a figure of the same scale and articulation of Star Wars figures.
The vehicles were a combination of mad max and tonka construction. The vehicle I'm looking for in particular was like a tan dumptruck with the back tires being replaced with tank treads. The cab had shielding where the windows are. The figure that came with it was a bald guy with a big mustache. His arms were mostly bare and he was wearing a purple/blue suit with gold ornamentation on the upper torso.
I'm looking for it, for a custom. So any help is much appreciated.

Here ya go:
Steel Monsters by Tonka. They seem to be pretty rare so good luck finding them.

Maybe they were rare once but it looks like people are starting to let them go now. In the past week 13 of them sold on ebay ranging from $30-$36 for MIB and $1-$18 for loose

I have never seen those. But they actually look pretty friggin sweet.
But it does make me wonder...I have been interested in looking for these toys I had when I was a kid. It was a little Red and grey armored guy with similar articulation as these guys that rode on a vehicles that used ziplines. I think this guy was the leader of the these zipline dudes. I know you could set them up in trees and such make them go acrossed the lines. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
