Whats going on guys?

 

My parents dropped off some old toys of mine to me this week. Most the stuff is from the early to mid 1980s.

 

Found this purple head. No body. Not sure who he is.

Any ideas?

 

Thanks!

Yeah a bit creepy for sure!

 

Plan is to try to 3D print a replica new body for him if we can figure out who he is. Plan B is just to print a random action figure body and give him new life :)

Hannibal from the A-Team 6' figure line by Galoob but I've never seen it in purple before?

Could it be a bootleg?

Hey guys, thanks so much for the help. Honestly I have no idea why he is purple. Would the paint have faded and that was the original plastic color underneath? Not sure.

 

Then again, I'd be purple in the face if I was in a garbage bag for 20+ years too!

Strangely i've been thinking that to, Ive seen it with other figures with this type of PVC used for heads but usually only localised in one area, I thought maybe a chemical reaction but thats a shot in the dark , I really dont think its a bootleg but I could be wrong
