Computer Warriors

 
 
Computer Warriors are one of those series that I find it easy to like because it's obscure, and by owning them and having some first hand experience with them in the toy isle, I feel that I am at least in some way contributing to the greater toy-collecting good. While I love my Transformers collection, and it is one of my defining personal characteristics, I admit that there are so many other fans of that series out there that it becomes very hard to be distinguished from the noise. Even having as I do a mostly complete collection isn't all that impressive any longer because anyone with enough money and patience can assemble one better than my own from ebay in a matter of several months. Now while the same may be true for Computer Warriors, the difference is that hardly anyone remembers them and as such they become remarkable!

Purchased originally in 1989 and 1990 when they were on the Clover shelves in the suburbs of Philly, here is what I can find of the original collection. I have high hopes that the few remaining missing boxes will turn up, as there are countless areas left to be searched.
