Recently ressurected toy maker Odeon Toys (http://www.odeontoys.com/) announced today that they would be re releasing their hit action figure "Brick Mantooth: Action Model" to toy stores in 2010.
Released originally in 1975, the Mantooth doll was a tremendous hit which current Odeon toys president Victor Machismo Sr attributes to one key factor, manliness. "Brick had more testosterone than any other toy on the market, he was more bionic than Steve Austin, his fists smashed through GI Joe's puny Kung fu Grip" Machismo adds " And Big Jim took one look at Brick and ran like the fancy little princess that he was"
While Odeon released a number of outfits and vehicles for Brick including the "Mantooth Party Van", current releases for Odeon Toys simply include the original action figure and potentially some of his "manmates" outfits.
The Brick Mantooth doll will come as shown and sold in a replica solid box at the Plaidstallions.com website. It will be on display at the EMCE toys booth at this weekend's 2010 Toy Fair (http://www.emcetoys.com/). For more on Odeon toys please check out their website http://www.odeontoys.com/
Be sure to check out the Mego Museum today for an equally cool announcement regarding all things 8 inch action figures.
Just an aside, this is totally legit, no foolin', I'm making a Brick Mantooth action figure in 2010.
Many thanks to my creative partners in crime, Scott C Adams, Steve Moore and Sean Sansom, Joe and Paul from EMCE for the tremendous help to make this dream come true!
