Once upon a time there was an action figure with a blue laser gun and lightning-shaped sword. He had a skin-tight black and blue superhero costume and a captain’s hat. He had sort of a goofy grin on his face and looked a little like the friendly middle-aged neighbor from next door. (But, heck, this was the 1960’s and we didn’t mind if our super heroes looked like our dads.)

The cool thing with this action figure is that you could change him into OTHER superheroes and comic book characters, like Batman, Superman, Green Hornet, Spider-Man and Captain America. This great action figure even had his own alien nemesis, a freaky blue-skinned guy with an exposed brain! (How cool is THAT?!) He even had his own kid sidekick, who had a black panther as a pet! (That’s just crazy, man.)

There are a few of us that still consider this unique toy the best action figure ever. In fact, he was so beloved that a little toy company you may have heard of, Playing Mantis, even brought him back about 10 years ago.

Well, you can’t keep a good man down, and we at Round 2/Forever Fun are proud to be associated with this classic action figure once again.

We’ll have more news in the coming weeks. In the meantime, check out this press release on Forever Fun and take a gander at the (very preliminary) images posted below.
