I hit the swap meet pretty late in the day today. The weather is absolutely beautiful but I had other things to do in the morning, and only decided to hit the swap meet on a lark. Most vendors were packing up and rolling out, so I consider myself pretty lucky to have found this guy for a dollar:
He is marked "Sungold" and "Made in Hong Kong" on his back, and I immediately recognized him as a Masters of the Universe knock-off or also-ran from the early eighties. I had to do some quick internet based research when I got home to find out he came from the toyline Galaxy Warriors and that his name is Dino Man (or is it DinoMan? Or possibly...oh nevermind.)
One more interesting thing about these fellows is that each of these guys, while looking almost identical below the neck, are in fact made up of entirely different sculpts. You can tell in the picture by looking at the boots and wrist guards, but even the torsos are different (Dino Man has his maker marks on his back, while Huk has his on the back of his right leg.)
There's an alternate universe where Sungold Classics figures are being sold to nostalgic alternate universe toy collectors through the alternate universe online store at SungoldCollector.com. The only question is, are they bitching about poor quality control too?
