Mattel has sent over official photos and full details for their upcoming Sun-Man. Originally created by a Yla Eason, a mother looking to have a superhero that her son could relate to, Sun-Man was a 5.5″ tall figure released back in 1986. The figure became part of the Rulers of the Sun toy line from Yla Eason’s Olmec Toys, which included Black, Hispanic, Asian, and Native American superhero action figures in a completely new story.
The figure is coming to Mattel Creations starting Monday, September 13th. Sun-Man will be priced at $35. The figure includes two interchangeable portraits, swap out hands, removable wings, a shield, and a sword with a flame effect. The packaging for the figure will feature a comic retelling the hero’s origin story. You can see all of the photos, and official details on the creation of the original Sun-Man figure, after the jump.
