Emperor Dementia, the ruthless leader of the Evilites sworn to kill all Izzurians, was one of only four Lords of Light action figures known to exist. Released in 1984 by Pac Toys, Mr. Dementia is one of the figures not to be based on an existing Micronaut character.

A hodgepodge of different Micronaut figure parts and accessories, any Lords of Light figures are an extremely rare find. With loose joints and made from very fragile plastic, the Emperor (are as any Lords of Light figures) is hard to find complete in any condition, and possibly even rarer to find MOC.


The Evilite Villians all featured interesting variations on the earlier released Micronaut Alien weapons with their accessories. Emperor Dementia featured a black Antron blaster, a Centaurus sheild and a modified Alien cuff with peg. The modified cuff acted as a holder for the weapon or glow stick, and could be inserted into the figures hand.


All the Lords of Light figures also featured an unusual yet very interesting play accessory/feature: the Emralyte Power Rods. These "power rods" were nothing more than tiny glow sticks, that when cracked, could be inserted into the the figures hollow chests to make them "glow with power"! The humanoid figures could also hold them in their hands as a sort of "light saber"...

Emperor Dementia is known to have two variations, with both card and deco.One variation of the card and figure show an all green swooping background behind the figure, which has a full hood molded around his head. This figure also has black eyebrows painted on.

The second variation is the one shown above, with an added purple background on the card (possibly to show off the figure better) and a slight red paint line following the angle of the chests armor. The hood was also cut down to become a sort of "collar", and the eyebrows now painted white. The Micronology chart shows Emperor Dementia as the first and only example of this figure, but as part of the Lords of Light line, this joins him into the Micronaut family tree as a welcomed addition into the Microverse.
