Wow! Never seen ALL of these guys before (I think just Sun-Man Pig-Head)...viva diversity!
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??

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...).
The only thing this website's missing is scans of the mini-comics. I would love to see those!
Good Buyers/Sellers/Traders: Royalt1us, chrisbryan, AGE, UnemployedSkeletor, EwR-Disaster, Kero, jaggerart, Uki, skully, overlordofevil, Neo, He-Bruely, returnofplex, Jonny Tyler, Herewegoagain, lemure77, bigassbuzz. (if I've had a transaction with you and your not on this list, please remind me.)
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 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.
You can join the Illumina Facebook page here!
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!
Thanks for sharing, The All American !
I thought ToyGuru himself illustrated this...
I've beem looking for a complete Pig Head but it's almost impossible to find.
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.
You're all welcome
Here's the last page, in case anyone wants to join the Fan Club. July 31st is the deadline. Oh, 1986, never mind....
Does anyone here has pictures of both Pig Head versions ?
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.
For larger images:
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.
Please visit my store for custom MOTUC accessories and services.
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.

I've got everything that I need, right in front of me! Life's a happy song people!
Fear is faith in failure
*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
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)
