Aquatic Villain and the Pink Fairy Isz

Mer-Man is another figure from Mattel's Masters of the Universe Classics line. A fantastic line and the Mer-Man really turned out great. The best part about him, is that he comes with two heads. One head that resembles the original 80's action figure, and another head (the one you see in this shot) that is modeled after the art on the back of the original figure's package.

I think that most of the general public that have heard of The Maxx are those that caught the animated version on MTV's Liquid Television. The animated show was excellent, and there is a very good reason for that. Because it followed the comic to a T. I can't recommend the comic book enough, it is my all time favorite, and you should be able to find all the issues collected in trade paperbacks. The Pink Fairy Isz that you see in this photo never appeared on the television show, as they came later in The Maxx's comic run. It was a nice surprise that Shocker Toys chose to release one with their new Indie Spotlight Maxx action figure.
