New-To-Me 1/6 Man in Town


I incorrectly assumed this guy was by Hasbro when I found him online earlier this week.  He needed a new home.  I thought his face was interesting and that he would look nice dressed and paired with one of the women here.  I hoped he would be tall enough before I completed the purchase.

He arrived yesterday.  He is about the same size as the so-called 12-inch GI Joes and almost the same height as most of my fashion dolls.  Until now, I had never heard of his manufacturer, Lanard Toys Ltd.  The body has a copyright date of 1999, just below his waist.

I Googled the manufacturer's name and found this link for their current line, which may not currently include dolls that share his complexion. 

He is dressed in a Ken fashion.  His big feet are basically just standing on S. I. S. Darren's sneakers.  They barely close in the back.


An unlikely female has already captured his attention.  (She, a Barbie type, was a thrift store find a few weeks back.)  It must be the cleavage.

Anyone know who he is?

  1. I like these action figures. I have a couple in my collection including him. http://i-luv-dolls.blogspot.com/search/label/Ultra%20Corp His head came in two complexions, dark like you have and medium brown. The original clothing for him was just OK. His hands make it hare to put a shirt on him but there are some great things he can wear.

  2. Limbe dolls - He indeed is a hunk!

    Thank you Ms. Leo for helping me identify my new man as Junkyard Mountain Recon by Ultra Corps. I will have to give him a better name, something more appropriate and something that "I" can remember. Thanks again!

  3. Hmmpt! Did I spell that right. What a body! Nice face, too. I'm betting it's the cleavage, too. He looks like that type. She has a nice face and nice hair, but I am sure that he hasn't seen it yet. Might take a few months before he realizes she has a face.

  4. I love the Ultra Corps guys. I have a few of them before they shortened them and gave them permanent clothes.

  5. Shortened and permanent clothes? What a no-no. It's great that you grabbed a few before the company made that terrible move.

  6. @Vanessa - ROTFLMBO. "I'm betting it's the cleavage, too. He looks like that type."

    BDE, your guy is cute. Most of the Lanard guys I have seen were not so cute though. The only Lanard figures that I have are the I-Girls.

  7. Thanks for sharing the link and making me aware of the Lanard's I-Girls, D7ana. They look a lot like Barbie.
