Can someone tell me who or what this figure is/is from?

I'm normally pretty good at telling this stuff but his only copy right info is "Made in Spain" on his back.

Wild guess in the dark, but it almost looks like a Mego "Space 1999" figure from the 1970's.

Nope it's not Mego or Space 1999, it could be Spain's equivalent to Action Man or G.I. Joe.

Did Thunderbirds ever have figures like this?

But I'd bet it's Gerry Anderson based!

Taking a second look at this I don't think that top goes with the figure, the sleeves are to short for the figure and the top looks a little short as well.

I think it's a mish mash of parts, either put together by a Bootleg company or a Child, the hands look like Spidermans gloves but silver.

Maybe Clutch will chime in. If he doesn't know, I don't know who will!

I showed this to one of my guys on a Doctor Who forum who is really into Mego and Mego Style figures he had this to say:

Quote:
Hi Van

It looks like a Pedigree or Zodiac Tommy Gunn figure, but I've never seen that costume or the strange hair.

Is there a maker's stamp on his bum or back?


Given that it's from Spain it could very well be a Denys Fisher figure.

Ok I think Mego was 8" I could be wrong haven't seen any since I was young. So if this is the case it rules out the Mego line.

I don't know how tall Deny's figures were but I think these also were 8".

Just about! They come in 7 something but close enough to round up.

Okay didn't mean to soun that pendantic but Tom looses height without his hat and shoes.

Hey Dan, post it up over in the Mego Museum. Those guys over there are amazing at how fast they identify stuff like this.
