    Man at arms...with a stache??

    anyone ever seen one of these, or any evidence it could exist? picked it up off ebay. just your average loose incomplete figure. now ive been collecting vintage toys for the last 20 years so i can spot fakes and customs pretty good these days but this flipping thing looks factory. looks masked on, same finish as eyebrows. wanted to see what the community thinks.. heres the specs. 1983 date, no coo, hard head, blue belt, brighter green, darker boots, #1 on the bottom of left boot. he came without accessories and i just threw some armor on him so that info is no good.

    It does look good, but I've never heard of a vintage MAA with a stache. I think someone modified this.
    By the ancients!!!

    This could be variant made in Brazil (Estrela).
    Here is the picture of another figure with the same mustache:

    Google Translation:

    Estrela (Brazil)

    Mentor has been realized on a single mold and differs from Taiwan to the head (which is hard rubber), some details of the color, the clarity of the face and brands. might be even a version of "mustache" of perhaps inspired by the cartoon character. I think this is an addition of some cheesy child, but because from the picture the color looks factory insert the photo and see if there is someone who knows more ... On the back may be written "Estrela SA" or not reported any brand.

    Do you have a picure of your custom?

    These two are "made" if they are customs, on uncommon variants, since they both have hard rubber heads....which is very rare among Am-At-Arms figures?
