Hail to “The King!”


Knock-Off King

Knock-Off King

When I started collecting Mego-scaled Knock-Offs, I knew there was at least one Elvis out there, but since then, I’ve been on my third bootleggy iteration of Mr. The Pelvis.

My latest, “The King,” is my most original and new favourite. He’s a 9″ doll with a unique head sculpt (which isn’t bad, all things considered), some truly interesting clothes, and a blow-moulded body in gold and red. It’s probably a recycled Ultra-Man bootleg.

While I’m probably certain that this was just done out of a complete lack of care, that extra bit of irony puts a perfect bow on why I love collecting this crap. What commemorates Elvis better than a hilariously badly made toy that doesn’t give his estate a penny?

Now I can imagine Elvis as Earth’s guardian karate choppin’ Gameras.”The solar energy which gives Elvis his superhuman power decreases rapidly in Earth’s atmosphere.” The timer starts to blink…….
