Vintage Figures

WCC - Day2, originally uploaded by datadub.

These are 2 amazing little figures and the kind of toys that my geek squeak. The figure on the left is a bootleg mini of an obscure 70's hero called HUMAN. Whoever owned this puppy took a pen to it and blacked up the lines and even drew in some eyes - but it was done in such a way that it for me just adds to the figures charm. Another interesting aspect of the figure is the way the split between the top and bottom halves is at the chest plate rather than at the waist which is the norm.

The figure on the right is from the legendary astro mu series. A classic flying pose mini and the form factor is the base that charactics used for their recent Walder minis. CLASSIC!
