After a long break, I have another wonderful mystery box of Knock-Offs from the United Kingdom, this week we’re going to meet The Space Apes, a series of action figures that seem to resemble the Mego Planet of the Apes figures but with some noticeable differences.
This week we’re not going to talk about making a custom but rather look at some fond memories and celebrate some creators. Fans make the coolest stuff and let me introduce you to some of my favourites like the Supermobile, Jet Jaguar and Electra Woman and Dyna Girl, you’re gonna love it!
The Adventurer was a blow molded (ie cheap) doll and outfit set that shared a lot of parts with Mego’s Action Jackson (many of the outfits are identical and bear the Mego trademark) and then some of the outfits got really whacky, making us wonder what was meant by “adventure”. More after the jump:
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!
