    My LEO collection

    A significant portion of my collection of He-Man are LEO items. As a kid I was a huge He-Man, Gi Joe, WWF Hasbro/LJN , and Turtles fan. When these lines were no longer produced I convinced various family members to buy LEO/Funskool from India. My parents are from India and even when I went myself LEO He-Man were extremely hard to find. Only the rich kids could afford He-Man and I only knew of only one person that had a single figure. These were families where storeshops brought staff to there homes and showed them all the new toys to buy.

    Compared to Funskool Gi Joe He-Man are way more rare, I had seen a few Black Snake Eyes the odd Blue Snake Eyes and even Superhero who I regrettably didnt get as I thought it was way tooo fake, but even store shops said He-Man was tough to get.

    As these were brought over the cards were often cut to save space or the figuures were opened.

    I would also be very reluctant to purchase some of the LEO items on EBay as adequate proof of authenticity would be required. I had never once seen a flying fists he-man advertised on any back of the cards or in any of the stores. I know one came up recently, not sure if it is a real LEO though.

    Cheers

    I'd love to have more, but they are way too expensive for me! These 2 were a gift by the way.

    Very nice collection. Does anyone know if there was such thing as a Mekaneck Leo. I think I have found one for sale but there's very little color difference.

    I have a few Funskool Joes... and the quality is... less than great. Are leo He-man toys roughly the same quality as the real thing?

    Slightly different Paint colors and applications!

    but the main difference is that these figures are made a little hardier!

    the figure has a hard head the legs always seem to be real tight not loose like most taiwan figs and also the figure feels a lot more solid or heavier if you will!

    Was Leo only in India or Mexico as well.
    I have this Battle Armor Skeletor in my collection that has a chest that tends to be a lighter purple than the normal purple-blue chest.
    This one says "Patent Pending" on his back and "Mexico".

    Here's a photo:


    oh yeah and I forgot to mention, his head is very hard to squeeze.

    and because of the colour similarities, I was asking if Leo only made them in India, or if they had factories in other countries as well.
