These guys are incredible. Never heard of them before, but I figure'd we could get a thread going about them. Seller said they were unproduced, which doesn't seem unlikely. Such a shame too, these designs are awesome.
This line would have been awesome!!

I am relatively sure I've seen that red monster guy before loose in someone's collection or in a random eBay lot. Not saying that makes these "produced" because I could have been another proto that someone was unaware of. Regardless, these are amazing. And yeah, that BIN is a bit steep for my blood.
All I know is that the original owner "wolfie1" also owned a lot of super powers prototypes and rarer funskool gi joes. He was sort of a big deal collector a decade ago (don't try to find him, he's LONG out of the toy community) and when I asked him about these back when they were on ebay still he had no idea of the maker behind them and the figures were hand painted resin. Only set he had ever seen or owned so my assumption they were to be produced by a very small time or new start-up company and these were their only display models that were hand produced.
I am the master of Foreign variations for just about any and all 80s toylines. I have the largest collection of Brazilian made toys in the USA!
