The Andrea Gail is a sword fishing boat out of Gloucester, Massachusetts. Billy Tyne is her captain, down-on-his-luck from a recent losing streak, looking to bring back one big score so he and his crew will have the money to stay ashore during the coming winter. So out they go, and they hit it big, hauling in what the crew estimates is a quarter-million-dollars worth of fish. Unfortunately, they haven't paid attention to the weather forecasts or the radio, and the boat is right in the path of what will become one of the most terrifying and fantastic storms of the century. The always-beating heart of the adventure are the men (and women) who go down to the sea in ships and are oft-times lost at sea, doing battle with the unpredictable, sometimes vicious forces of Nature. Based on a true story, and dedicated to the ten thousand Gloucestermen who have died at sea since 1623

In entrambe le serie di giocattoli vengono inseriti dei microchip in grado di animarle ma che si rivelano troppo potenti per essere controllati. Prima del lancio promozionale, alcune scatole del nuovo prodotto finiscono nelle mani del giovane Alan (figlio del proprietario di un negozio di giocattoli) che decide di venderle per risollevare i magri bilanci della famiglia. Durante la notte, tuttavia, i Commando Elite si destano dalle loro scatole e incominciano l'implacabile ricerca della serie rivale. I fuggitivi, sempre con i Commando Elite alle calcagna, si nascondo a casa di Alan che, insieme all'amica Christie, viene subito considerato alleato del nemico da abbattere. Inizia così un paradossale assedio, con i Commando Elite che si alleano con le Barbie di Christie, e i Gorgonauti e i due ragazzini che si difendono per non soccombere. La battaglia finale vedrà soccombere i Commando grazie a uno stratagemma di Alan, e i Gorgonauti potranno salpare alla ricerca di qualcosa di simile al proprio pianeta Gorgon
