Behold the mighty Garza the Mummy! This figure was released in Europe by Matchbox Toys in 1990, as part of their "Con-Nec-Tors" line of action figures. Matchbox is best known for their toy cars, and the Con-Nec-Tors were actually a spin-off of Matchbox's Con-Nect-Ables line of cars. The action figures had removable heads and limbs which could be swapped out with the heads and limbs of other figures in the line, to create all kinds of crazy combinations. The same figures were released a year later in North America by Ertl Toys, under the name "Socket Poppers." I'll be doing a full post on the Socket Poppers/Con-Nec-Tors sometime after the Countdown to Halloween, where I will be swapping out body parts, but for now I'll be focusing on the individual figures. Check out the Socket Poppers Mummy after the break!
