    If I understand well, this is like the "Bronze Bombers" action figures Olmec released in 1988… intended only for black people (I really like Bronze Bombers).
    Separate Joes, separates dolls… ain't it a little too "Malcolm X"?
    What do you call that? Black market? 🙂
    P.S.: I love Slade/Shaft the Agent.

    Yeah, Olmec is definitely very similar to what Shindana was, a company trying to give Black America a face in the toy aisle. Like Olmec, they also expanded and offered a multi cultural offering of toys as well.

    Slade Super Agent is by far my favourite Shindana toy but my talking Redd Foxx is a close second.

    A talking Fred Sanford, oh God, what did I miss…
