Oh my goodness... this one is ugly !

Captain Harlock, Bootleg ?, Italy, 1970's

One more for the f...ugly collection - but had to have it ! In Japan, they made beautifull cheap toys with vinyl. In Italy, ... well, blown plastic just does not give you the details, really.

Nice try Italy. In France, they would say : Oh mon dieu ! Albator a la jaunisse ! (jaundice)

Too much drinking ?

El Dúo Dinámico

Straight from Mexico - big size (5" - 13cm) figurines... No idea who or when these were made. But they sure have all the charm and funkyness of the original TV series...

Batman and Robin, ?, Mexico, ?

Ovomaltine Goldrake ! Put some power in these arms !

There was a saucer too ? 
OK, you really had to live in Italy to get that one when you were a kid - but now, By the Powers of Castle... hmmmm sorry - by the powers of the internet.... voilá !

Lousy paintjob... is that lead-based ?
I'm seeing double !

Italian beauty !

Robot, ?, Italy, 1970's
All plastic and deadly grin on face.




















One more for the Fugly database. No maker on it. Same size as my GA-37 Popy Grandizer - except this one is not made of any alloy whatsoever. Just Rubber Baby !

Now that I know who this is (thank you Mr. Carvalho) I could find a piece of the cartoon from 1976... Enjoy !
