    I've got Sun-Man version two and for all of the people that said they "had" the other characters besides Sun-Man & Pig Head please post pics because Sun-Man & Pig Head were the only production figures made....

    And if the company went Bankrupt and out of business who owns the rights to Sun Man??

    Investigation Needed.

    This is worth an investigation.

    I found a website that has the most pics and info available. Just click on the right column for pics(A-Rulers of the Sun, B-Sun-Man, C-Later releases...).

    http://www.he-man.org/forums/boards/...FLine_Id%3D132

    The only thing this website's missing is scans of the mini-comics. I would love to see those!

    While I don't have any of the figures from the Rulers of the Sun line, I would imagine that at least the first wave of 6 figures were made for two reasons: 1) There's an order form that exists where you could send away for them. (Strangely all the the secondary male characters are shown sans accessories) and 2) All 3-figures from the Butterfly Woman line made it to production. Speaking of Butterfly Woman, I'm happy to report that I was lucky enough to score a MOC Amandla for $15. Should be coming to in the next few days. I'm so excited.



    I'm guessing that maybe stores didn't order very many of the secondary characters and hence they're extremely rare. In one article, Yla Eason reported that Sun-Man was selling approx. 500 figures a day. I think the secondary characters would be considerably less.

    I can confirm at last another figure was released besides Sun Man and Pig Head.
    A few months ago, I watched an eBay auction of a loose "Holographo" guy.
    I remember it reached a high price !

    Also, I discovered that Pig Head villain has a variant figure...indeed, a member from Org has both versions

    Anyway, I really like to see at least Sun-Man and Pig Head in a KO MOTUC ! Where's Working Class Villains guys ????

    I have a Butterfly Woman figure and if the comic is anything like hers, it's more like a wordy "Golden Book" than an actual comic.
    Could we get some Meteorbs, Please???!!!

    I recently bought a sealed first edition Sun-Man. The mini-comic was included! So, for your viewing pleasure, enjoy.....

    The Rulers of the Sun mini-comic "Battle for the RAYS!" (inside, it also says "Sun-Man Meets Pig-Head")





















    *The artwork ranges from good to terrible. You can see a lot of the mistakes and corrections in this mini-comic. It looks like the pages were originally done in colored pencil, though the mini-comic itself is well made, it's a little glossier than the original MOTU mini-comics. Yla Eason created Sun-Man, and I believe her son (who was probably only a few years old at the time), Menelik, is credited on page 6.

    Thanks for sharing the comic! That's so cool. That's weird they start to rhyme...and keep rhyming up to the very end though.
    Take part in Illumina Day! Let people know who she is and help get her in MOTUC.

    Thank you All American!! I've been wanting to see that for a long time. I love Chem-Brain and Cube-Face, I never knew Pig-Head had any lackeys. And I never expected Sun-Man's alter ego to be a cowboy, but I love that he rhymes when he talks. This would have made a great cartoon!

    Cool comic. Here's what I have coming to me in the news few days. Amandla The Super Psychic! Apparently her name is supposed to mean something in Zulu but I can't recall what at the moment. Love her skin tone, features and draggy makeup. I'm disappointed that is seems like her 3 weaves/hair pieces never made it to production. (unless they're tucked behind her or something...lol)

    She reminds me of someone famous but I can't put a name with the face.

    That, I don't know. I would imagine this was the only 1985 Rulers of the Sun mini-comic. But Tallstar's Butterfly Woman figure looks like she comes with a mini-comic!

    Earlier in the thread, someone was asking for proof of the existance of figures other than Sun-Man and Pig-Head. Check out this awesome site:

    Check out this awesome article on Sun-Man and Buttefly Woman from 1986. Notice that the MOC Buttefly Woman packaging is missing the mini-comics.

    I think all 'Digitinos', 'Bolt Men', 'Holographos' and 'Space Sumos' produced are in this picture !

    I received my Pig Head last week and I loved him...he is all MOTU !
    Anyway, that's an amazing picture from an amazing collection.
    Thanks for sharing, Tallstar !

    Yes, quality is very good. I just wish I could find more than just Sun-Man! Pig Head will pop up every long while, and I saw a Holographo carded a while back. Other than those, I haven't even seen the others except for that one picture.

    Amandla means 'power' in Zulu and Xhosa languages (Xhosa is the language (though there are others) famous for the clicking sound in fact you pronounce Xhosa "~click~Clawsa" where the click is intwined with the Cl as we would pronounce SH or TH) She looks a bit like Jill Marie Jones from Girlfriends, but there is an actress or singer in the 80s she looks like too but I can't for the life of me remember who.

    *thumbs up for the information*

    You know, I keep going back to Nell Carter's friend, Addy (Telma Hopkins) on Gimme A Break for some reason (picture her done up in 80s makeup), although I feel like that's not quite who I'm thinking of. I feel like maybe the person I'm thinking of doesn't exist / that I'm crossing Telma with Bernadette from the 80s group Klymaxx or that she's part of another musical group....lol

    EDIT:

    For your reading enjoyment...

    I got a Pig-Head in a lot of vintage MOTU a while back and am now addicted to this line! What have I gotten myself into. Here are a couple of MOC Sun Man figures. First release (with the hard to find Sun-Man sticker on the bottom of the bubble) and then a later 90's release (Flat Top Sun Man) with the NA themed card.

    Anyone have the other 5 figures in the line complete/loose? (Pig-Head, Digitino, Bolt Man, Holographo, Space Sumo)
