A Gulliver Superman from Brazil!

(edited December 9, 2009: This Superman figure was made by Gulliver, a Brazilian toy maker)

Another great mystery surrounds the minds and ‘maginations of WorldMEGOheads. Here we have a very unusual, yet totally wonderful Superman purchased by WorldMEGO Super Collector Luis Felipe. He’s done his homework, as the following text and pictures will show, but you be the judge.

This is a 9″ Superman purchased  from a collector in Argentina who said it was from Uruguay. If so, this would be the first WorldMEGO style Super Hero to ever come out of that country. Finds from South America are definitely not unheard of with the recent Peruvian offerings from BASA of El Hombre Nuclear (Six Million Dollar Man), Batman, Robin and Superman. Even though the seller of this odd SuperSpecimen claimed origin in Uruguay, Luis realized almost immediately a very close resemblance to a character called “Daredevil” made by “Model Toys” in England. Take a good look at these comparison pics.

English made Model Toys "Daredevil" next to Uruguay? Superman

The similarities are Uncanny, but without any markings on the figure we’re still left with a mystery. This figure also begs the question, “Are there OTHERS??” Could we see a Flocked Hair Robin or a Bendy Armed Batman in the future? We will certainly dream well tonight!

If you can provide any information, your efforts will be greatly appreciated and included in future updates. For now, all we can do is enjoy this Fantastic and Goofy treasure. Superman ROCKS!!
