D&D, TSR and Why there are miniatures for Star Frontiers

The above link chronicles the history of miniatures and D&D.

Of note is the fact that TSR only made miniatures for 2 years and this time period happened to coincide with the publication of Star Frontiers meaning that we got a line of miniatures that was perhaps more broad than would have been done under license to another company.

It also may explain while some of the production runs of TSR minis are of such a poor quality of lead that they are subject to the blight of lead rot- inexperience in this market may have the cause of this.
I might not be a dralasite, vrusk or yazirian but I do play one in Star Frontiers!
