so, also in the storage unit i found some unidentified figures. there's three figures that look like small barbies. 2 white ones, one has red hair, one has blonde and one is a black girl with a tight afro. they all have "M.I." on one foot and "1970" on the other. they were either my mom's or my aunt's, but neither of them would know what the story was with them. they just were dolls to them.

also, there's this guy that kinda looks like a he-man figure. he has an eyepatch, a moustache & a beard, yellow wrist cuffs, brown trunks and tiny boots (seriously, this guy's feet are absurdly small, like petite feet from tim and eric) and red kneepads, which are just painted on, not sculpted. any ideas?

Can you be more precise on the guy, any other distinguising features.

He could be a Boot Leg from Galaxy Fighters/Warriors, Pirates of the Galaxseas or other bottleg He-Man, without any more info I can't help.

I'm betting that the "small Barbies" are Dawn dolls made by Topper Toys. They're about 6" tall?... I had one that I used as Supergirl until Mego made a "real" one. I'll see if I can find some pics online.

close, Jim, I actually listed them as barbie teenagers on ebay and a couple people sent me messages telling me they're called "Rock Flowers". Apparently Topper created the "Dawn" dolls to compete with Barbie and it worked so effectively Mattel came up with a new thing to compete with those, and that new thing was Rock Flowers. They came with little vinyl records, although i don't have them. Just the dolls. They're on ebay now if you want to go look at them.

as for the bearded guy with they eyepatch, i can't really explain him any better. it doesn't matter. he's probably not worth anything and i'll just put him in the box with the stuff that doesnt sell on ebay and shove it in my storage shed when i leave town.

It is indeed, I had hoped that would help you out.
