One of the most frequent requests I get since I started this blog is more information about Sun-Man. Where can I get these action figures? Do you have a source? You can’t even find them on e-bay. I should know as I have checked, myself. I’m not actually a collector but if I could find a source for this elusive action figure, you can bet I’d have one and would be more than willing to share it. Considering the company, Olmec Toys, is long out of business and the character lacks even a wikipedia entry, I’m not sure where to look.
There is a lot of information out there about the history of the Sun-Man character and the fate of Olmec Toys. None of this has helped me locate any of the inventory but if you’re interested in the story, check out this post here, this post, and lastly, this post.
My main reason for writing about this is to reach out to the community to see if there is actually a source or even an individual or two who is willing to sell or put such items up for bid. Help a brother out. If you or someone you know has any such information, please post it here so that anyone interested can contact you. Thanks in advance.
