    Paul Kirk Manhunter

    The Paul Kirk Manhunter from the 70's. He's an old figure that needed a few repairs. Had to fix his leg armor up a bit and replace his weapon (it was referred to as bundi dagger back in the day, but I think it's actually a katar. And, no, that's not Thanagarian, it's south Asian). The original katar was made from modeling plastic that dries out over the years and now falls apart if you give it a stern glance. A little touch up on the hair paint, a little reinforcement of the shoulders, and he's back to fighting form.

    Hes nothing special. He puts his erector sets on one leg at a time just like the rest of us.

    Very well done figure, as always.

    Great looking custom! I wanted Paul Kirk Manhunter and Captain Comet Megos so bad when I was a kid. I was really into the Secret Society of Super Villains book in the mid 70s.
