The series was part of a Toy-Tie in created by Mattel. The toys consisted of action figures of all the major characters and Captain Power and Lord Dread's ships. The hips 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 »
Captain Power and the soldier of the future was transmitted on Italian t.v. at the end of 80'.I think that this and Visitors was the best series of 80'.In this serial appears for the first time the use of digital special effects for example to create the unforgettable Soaron. The atmosphere is dark, but the plot has a good development. Certainly the actors are not perfect, sometimes seems like they are children who are playing. The best idea was the Power suits, when I was a child I dreamed to have one.This serial didn't have a lot of success in Italy, so it was transmitted just once and I'm still waiting for another. POWER ON
