This Dynamic Duo is one of the earliest pair of Knock-Off Action figures but probably the earliest Super Hero Knock-Offs as well. The backer card of course, is famous for how Space Flyman “beats off” his enemies and trust me, I lean on that comedy crutch a whole bunch. BTW, we’ve made a cool Punch Boy collector pin designed by the awesome Chris Franklin.
My obsession with Spectreman’s nemesis is probably not well known but yeah, he’s like Dr. Zaius but with this sort of “Hipster Energy” that I totally just can’t help but cower to. He’s cooler than me, and it’s giving me a crisis!
I got to tell Mel Welles (the voice of Dr. Gori) about my appreciation for this character in the 1990s; he mumbled “kids” and rolled his eyes. PRAISE FROM CAESAR? I dunno, I felt validated for weird Gen-X latchkey kids everywhere.
You know after 40 years of collecting, I can’t say I’ve ever been in the same room as one of these. The Dalek from this series was the first vintage toy I ever done bought.
To quote Mr. Burns, “I don’t know art but I know what I hate” and I LOVE THE LIVING HELL OUTTA THIS.
You know, this week it freaked me out that Fonzie is the same age as my dad, who is also weirdly younger than Mick Jagger. Right now, I would appreciate a world leader who holds all his meetings in a Burger King bathroom just like the Digital Underground.
