Did Anyone Actually BUY This? pt. 3
Ok, this is just wrong. And, mind you, I have always been an easy mark. My collection as a child included everything from Mego's to Micronauts to Shogun Warriors and everything in-between. I'm not a hard-sell when it comes to adventure.
But look at them. Just look at them.
It appears that their super-powers consist of being able to snap various Dirt Devil attachments to their clothing, and the ability to sport unique codpieces. Start saving your milk money now, kids!
And look at their heads. Great jumpin' heck, look at those heads! It looks like a motorcycle cop (only motorcycle cops and adult film stars of the '70s can carry off that 'stache), my old driver's ed teacher, and the guy who lives on the end of your street who lives alone and lets 13 year old kids in the neighborhood come over for video games, beer and back-rubs.
They took out full-page ads in DC comics across the board for a month or two, which is impressive, but I never saw this product in the stores. Now, of course, I totally want a complete set. Thank goodness for ebay.
