Toy-Ventures: Popy World Heroes

This week’s episode is all about the greatest toys you never had as a kid, unless you grew up in Japan that is. The Popy World Heroes are an amalgamation of the Kenner Star Wars figures with the greatest TV Superheroes Japan had to offer.

I’m talking Power Rangers! I’m talking Ultra-Man and his many, many brothers and my personal favourite Kamen Rider and his arch enemies. Popy World Heroes are the kind of crazy the world needs.

This is a change of pace for Vintage Mego, these figures weren’t made by Mego heck the company had been out of business! We’re not even sure they’re licensed.

Presenting the Gulliver Super Heroes, a line that crossed the Kenner Super Powers with the Mego Pocket Superheroes.

This video is intended for adult (18+) collectors only.
