Wallopin’ web snappers!
I forgot all about these guys until they popped into my head today:
I wasn’t lucky enough to own any of these dudes but they sure were pretty cool…you gotta’ love the hand puppet idea for their steeds.
“…somewhere in space, somewhere in time, exists a planet called Symbion, where a genetic experiment fails. Frightening changes take place that cannot be stopped. The result? A world where insects and arachnids grow to frightening proportions. A world where the inhabitants have taken on the awesome characteristics of insects and arachnids. Prince Dargon, ruler of the peaceful Shining Realm of Prosperon, and his allies are in conflict with the forces of Empress Devora, ruler of the Dark Domain of Synax, and her henchmen, for possession of the Hyves, fortresses of an ancient civilization holding the key to ultimate power. Each character was “tele-bonded” with intelligent, non-anthropomorphic insect creatures called Insectoids that had a special ability, and shared each others pleasure and pain.” – wiki
