A fairly recent creation from Distinctive Dummies, this figure is 100% awesome in it’s cheap-0 50s sci fi glory. Still available at their website.
I really dig these figures based on the TV mini series of the same name. I’m not sure why they got made but Rack Toy manufacturer Larami sure did a cheap and quick job on them. I’m surprised any survived.
This seller has this guy for a BIN of $145, which isn’t terrible. These guys show up in waves, then long droughts, don’t know why….
Flatt World was one of the first companies to jump into the “ReMego” fold but it would utilize a hyper realistic format and produce 8″ lovingly detailed figures. Their first release of Bela Lugosi had a retail of $59.95 and while a critical hit, the company struggled with retail distribution.
Zorro, based on the then hot Anthony Banderas film were just one of the many cool licenses in the pipeline. In the days of people spending car payments on Hot Toy figures and kickstarter campaigns, this seems like a no brainer but sadly, 1999 was a different world and FW’s legacy began and ended with Dracula.
Plaidstallions hosts the web’s most comprehensive gallery of Gabriel Lone Ranger toys. It’s actually a bit bittersweet seeing as this line needs to be celebrated more, there should be dozens of websites talking about it.
Figures, outfits, playsets, foreign variants, it’s all here at the Gabriel Lone Ranger Archive. Always actively seeking submissions of items they don’t have, spread the love!
I swear that I was the only guy who liked this line when it was available and I still stand by how fun it was. The Playing Mantis reboot of Action Jackson proposed third wave of figures would have included an Animal Wrangler (complete with rubber snakes), a parachutist (that worked) and a WW2 soldier and FRIGGING JEEP!
Sadly, it was all for naught, PM closed it’s doors not long after. The wonderful woman who ran their message boards gave me the AJ catalog for all of this but it’s lost to bottomless pit that is my filing cabinet….
Weep with me!
