Toy Pix: Pirate Mini-Figure



When I saw that this week's assignment from the League of Extraordinary Bloggers is "pirates", I immediately thought of me matey here. I bought this 2.5" figure in an antique store about a year ago, but honestly I have no clue what line he came from. He could be a dollar store toy, although his sculpt and plastic seem more vintage-y, similar to older toy lines like Marx Dinosaurs. There are holes in his hands which might indicate that he held swords, zip-lines, or both. Whatever the case, he's a pretty cool little dude. Click through for more pics! And if anybody knows where he came from, be sure to leave a comment!

ARRRRRRR!!!

  1. Looks like it might be an MPC Pirate figure from the 60's. Check this link for a picture of a few other pirate figures from the line: http://www.etsy.com/listing/113171778/mpc-pirate-figures-set-of-6-in-great

  4. @ShezCrafti: I agree. I think it's the weird holes that are supposed to be eyes that creeps me out the most.
