PLASTIMARX MEXICO - VIKINGS 1970 - ?

Both Erik and Odin 1st issues were made by Plastimarx and sold in very similar boxes to the US MOD style. That is where the similarity ends. As with the 1st issue knights, Plastimarx made several changes.



ODIN  El Valeroso Vikingo


Lets start with the body. Odin came in a mid brown colour and had orange painted hair and beard. He also had blue eyes.

His weapons and helmets came in a silver colour and his clothes were cream. Plastimarx Vikings had their own unique instructions printed on yellow paper.

Like 1st issue Knights, these figures are well worth getting hold of. Their quality is comparable with US figures and they look great displayed next to their UK and US cousins.

ERICK (Yes Erick!)  El Vikingo


The only box I have seen for this guy is unique with two Vikings fighting in the background and nearly all white.

Erick, like Odin, is light brown but has orange hair and blue eyes. His weapons and helmets are black but his clothes are a reddish brown colour. ( Similar to a UK Cowboy kid brown.). Again, if you see this guy snap him up as they are not easy to come by complete.

Atrevidos Dynamicos  Vikings


Second and third issues came under this brand name. The early 1990's issues came in a black window box and had black bodies with either an Erik or Odin head. I have heard they also came with white bodies but I have yet to see one. The third issue figures, now found with either a Sam Cobra/ Sir Stuart head or an Odin head ( the Stuart head can have either black or orange hair) came in the larger self destructing boxes with silver and cream accessories. All these figures seem to have black bodies with unpainted rivets. One other main difference, the clothing is made from hard plastic and is almost impossible to get on the figures (see Knights section for origin of these figures).
