Love me some Willers! I don't know anything about the characters, but as a fan of the Mego western figures, the Willers were, for me, an extention of that line. I love their bright colors. There is just something about mint/crisp examples of these guys.

I love the Willers too! I'm looking at mine right now, staring down at me from one of my bookshelves. Like Dave, I know next to nothing about the characters, but they're the perfect complement to the American West line.

The only thing I know about Tex Willer comes from the museum and Bonavita's book, but I do know they were based on an Italian comic book/strip, and those colors capture "comic book" very well. They are pretty cool.

One of the coolest lines ever. I have no clue about the history of these guys either. I'm not sure where I discovered them from. I'm just glad to have finally completed my set thanks to Rob.

I like these guys better than Mego's version, costume-wise anyway. They look great on the shelf next to Supes and Bats, etc.
Mine aren't originals, but I did use type 1 bodies and they are eye-poppers! Kinda makes ya wanna be a cowboy!
