Initially I didn’t care to own Mr. Mxyzptlk, but after the ordeal of trying to clean tobacco stink out of a rare Type 2 (and only partly succeeding), getting a spare head, and finally cobbling my own version together out of spare parts, he’s kind of grown on me.
My Mxyzptlk is unique: he sports the arms and legs of a Lion Rock soldier dude, making him an impish 7 inches tall. He actually better resembles the character this way when compared to the others in the line.
So despite my dislike of Superman characters, I’m actually glad I added this one to the collection.
Wonder Woman has no shortage of weird adversaries, but none are as fun, in my opinion, as a short-tempered sociopath who can grow to the size of King Kong. I am of course talking about Giganta.
Giganta turned out to be quite a beautiful piece of work, beginning life as a 14″ Mego Poison Ivy. After hacking her hair to half length, I had a custom outfit made for her, and threw together some yellow bracelets out of a yellow file folder (lacking for better materials). The end result is as charming as a fifty-foot psycho redhead can get, and towers over the 8″ megos! They’re only as tall as her leg!
I suppose it helps that I have a thing for redheads AND for tall women. Anyway she’s far easier a custom to make than Cheetah, and I don’t see Cheetah swatting helicopters out of the sky while dishing out dumb one-liners.
