Picked up these jaspers from a nice friendly seller located in Mexico.
Los Invencibles Del Ring, they're rocking the same body type as Original Toys Super Ninjas. Right down to keeping the date/manufacture stamp. Made in Macao for a Mexican distributor is all I've found out about em. And where Super Ninjas had individual names and even accompanying comics ...
... these guys are all Frank, or Steve (or Tony as my girlfriend calls 'em, hmm, what does she know which I don't?) H3ck, I don't really collect Super Ninja or wrestlers, but thought these palookas just looked Purdy and fresh in their color design.
The sculpt even keeps the shoulder circle Super Ninja used for each character's emblem, but without any sticker. Given the Made in Macao foot sticker and paint freshness I don't think any emblem has been lost, rather just never applied. I won't hold my breath for a complete backing card or character names to surface so I guess I just gotta name them meself; Clink, Dragonfruit Bill, Funsy, and Hombre Horn. Aka; Tony, Tony, Tony and Tony. Please feel free to add name suggestions.

Dayglo plus Mexican manufacturing is known to be the most potent alchemical combination. That’s how they really won the Alamo, chucking garishly festooned bootleg figures at the Texans so they’d be enraptured while they were slaughtered with ease.
Changes to the heads would depend on how the figures and accessories were carded. If the masks were over the heads, there wouldn't be a need to make the heads different.
Sorta makes you wonder why they want the route of masks at all, 'stead of just having the luchadore mask/face be the default attached head. I reckon they were carded 'masks on' (total guess). Them masks sure don't breathe at any rate, lot of oily build up under there I had to wash away. Surprised they didn't get pimples.
I'll also add the link for the 'about us' page purely for giggles: www.sideinitial.top/about_us.html Just so's you get the kinda' site I mean. (who knows? you may all want to spend your life savings there)
Sweet. Found this, considerably better, with full images of the carded kemosabes. Looks like there weren't no names to be had. And the cards show six very Mexican characters I suspect don't exist in this line.
