Hey Guys I brought this guy a while ago. He came with a vam figure a while ago. I have re strung his legs and he does not have the correct lower arms, He is 8" tall and looks very much like a Mego figure. He has two buttons on his back that move his arms. but I wondered if anyone knew who or what he is?? any help would be most appreciated, thanks guys

Looking at Plaid stallion (what would we do without that site??) I'd hazard a guess that your guy is a 'SuperJoe'...

Looks like Super Joes came out when I was 16 yrs old.
That explains why I do not remember them as girls were
more important at the time... lol!

Here in the States, SJ hands do not exist. I'm not sure what guys are using for replacements, since I trade all my parts and pieces away, Danny may be right, the Mego style hands look like a good option. Ck out the Mego Museum for a possible solution. www.megomuseum.com/
