The comic of Supernaturals was good. Visionaries though, did have a fantastic animated show.
There were loads of Supernaturals toys in my neck of the woods as a kid, very few Visionaries, but the same was true of Action Force/GI Joe. That was not all that widespread in the shops I visited as a lad.
We had Visionaries and Action Force in our area but not in huge amounts. The latter vanished completely not long before it was rebranded as Gi Joe. Wouldn't see Joe toys in shops until the early 2000's. Supernaturals were everywhere, especially in corner shops/small newsagents in baskets.
Didn't see much of the figures at the time (too much Firecon hunting and Manta Force I suspect) but piles of the vehicles eventually appeared in a local cheap shop. I remember getting a couple for birthday ans Christmas one year.
That picture of the mountain itself is old, but I always thought the story was that it was a mockup and they'd never found a way to make the hologram work.
Given the small projector and the huge field it apparently displays, and it being, you know, some magic sci-fi hologram thing that is mains powered, I still can't comprehend the idea that it would have worked in any way shape or form. Has there ever been any other sort of rear projected hologram available?
I just can't be excited by a Visionaries V Transformers series before they've even had their own comics yet! Though if there are hologram variant covers no power on this Earth will stop me from acquiring them!
Racism? Eh? How do they work that one out? Is it the usual self-entitled twats screaming about something who have no knowledge of the actual original thing anyway rather than real world issues? That's the usual pattern.
I looked at the designs and they don't personally appeal to me but they could grow on me if I saw them properly in a sequential comic story or in toys.
If there are toys, I hope there are holograms or it's pointless doing them. That was the main selling point of the original line.
