Nice Argtalian toy. Very

Nice Argtalian toy. Very colorful.
I can only laugh, as I picture Dave in the "Holy Grail", seeking info across the globe, as he clops along out of the fog, with 2 coconut halves, and arrives at various old, musty, has-been factories, demanding old toy information!

..sorry, couldn't help it Dave, but you're as close as this audience gets to watching a serialized, toy-hunter epic.LOL ..."Tune IN Next Month!"

Considering there's things

Considering there's things we don't even know about something as mainstream as American released Masters of the Universe toys,I'm pretty sure a lot of the particular details of Italian bootlegs of bootlegs from the 70's are going to be lost to time.
To the people churning these out back then,it was a job. It wasn't like today,where you read interviews with the four horsemen about how sculpting DC heroes is their childhood dream. None of these people were interested in keeping long term records,just waiting out the clock till they could go back to smoking dime cigars in their one room efficiancy while trying to get one more pot out of yesterday's coffee grinds.

Absolutely. But I'm not

Absolutely. But I'm not trying to figure out things like why every junior machinder has the same hands, even though they were made by a variety of different companies, or anything like that. I basically am just trying to compile a checklist of what was made and by whom. So far, I've accounted for about 55 different junior machinders (including variations,, but not including the cheap soft poly knockoffs) and only need to know the makers of a couple of them. I'm sure new things will still turn up as we move forward, but it'll be nice to have a list I can look at and say "I need this..and this..." etc.
