Azrak Hamway International put out a line of 8 inch poseable monster action figures very similar to Mego or Remco back in the early 70s. The figure is in near-mint shape with paint loss on the left hand and also a few tiny spots on the chest. There are also some small red paint marks on the outer right thigh from the red finger tips on the right hand. The bubble has lifted from the backer card on the bottom and on both sides but is still firmly attached along the top edge. The bubble also has heavy creasing in many areas and a couple of actual splits along the bottom edge. The backer card has lithograph loss mainly on the left side where the bubble pulled up small sections of pink litho at some point. The backer card also has heavy creasing above the top of the bubble which is also visible from the back. Despite the package condition this piece as presented is one of the most sought after toys for monster collectors and is truly a HOLY GRAIL. Carded samples in any condition rarely surface so this is likely a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a true piece of collectable monster history. Please view the attached images of the exact item. This figure, bubble and card back are guaranteed all original. I will also include the custom clear display case for free.
