I was more into Knight Rider. If I was to pick from your list I'd go with CONAN, but only if it was the comic book version.

Rob an unlicensed Star Wars. Retheming you’re probably robbing a licensed product anyway. Might as well grab something cool. I have a ton of vintage Star Wars stuff you can throw in it.

Sorry to say, but I am not a huge fan of magical space knights with laser swords.

You're not missing anything. They're highly illogical.
