Marsupilami (Jus Toys)



Marsupilami
Jus Toys
1992

Though we're sure there are a few of them out there, Marsupilami is officially the only character we know that has its own asteroid named after it - Asteroid 98494 to be exact.

Last week we looked at Imperial's Classic Movie Monster line. Today we're going to be taking a look at another company that knows how to do bendable toys right - JusToys. While you won't hear much from the company these days, JusToys was a major contributor to the bendable toys market from 1990 to 1995. They produced some really great lines such as; Mickey's Stuff for Kids (as in Mickey Mouse), Marvel Superheroes, Star Wars, Battletoads, and more. They're definitely a company worth checking out if you're in to bendable figures.

Many of you probably have never heard of Marsupilami, but that's okay. Being a Belgian comic / cartoon character, he's not that well known in most parts of the world. The character did have a brief stint as a Disney character in 1993 in an animated series which ran for thirteen episodes. This factor contributes to why the character was chosen as a Bend Ems line by JusToys (the company produced several Disney property bendable figures during its five year stint).

You can find the figure here and there for around eight to ten dollars, but it's not really in abundance. If you're in to unique characters, and bendable toys, this would certainly be a great one to consider adding to your collection.
