Man, vintage toys really were the best. They just don't make them like they used to. Take Electroman here. The figure incorporates a flahslight which can be used to blast his enemy Zogg the Terrible (which we'll go into more down below).
Electroman is decked out from head to toe in an almost Mork from Ork style garb - Or perhaps the Greatest American Hero. Bright red and yellow makes this guy stand out like a sore thumb in your classic hero lineup.
Zogg the Terrible
As mentioned, Electroman was intended to be paired with Zogg the Terrible.
Zogg here features a motorized attack function. This does little more than make him walk forward, as well as the key piece for playing out battles - A stun deflector shield.
You can play with Zogg by either interacting him with Electroman, or blasting him yourself with the included stun gun. Remember, it's not about killing the villain. It's about stunning him to take him alive. That's what good superheroes do.
As was the case in the 70's (and 80's), when ordering toys from a catalog you often didn't get the flashy packaging that sat on toy shelves. Take for example these Montgomery Ward catalog boxes below. This is how the dolls came from that particular retailer.
Depending on the condition you're looking for, Electroman can set you back anywhere from $8.00 (poor / loose) to $400.00 (mint / sealed). Oddly enough, the Montgomery Ward versions in their bland brown boxes go for more than packaged ones.
Zogg is much more scarce, and loose will set you back anywhere from $50.00 to $80.00. Mind you, that this doesn't include the stun gun. Boxed versions are few and far between, and more so from European countries when found. Due to its scarce nature, we can't estimate a value for one on the box.
