Socket Poppers/Con-nec-tors "Moscos the Monster Fly" Vintage Action Figure - Ertl/Matchbox (1990)

Socket Poppers/Con-Nec-Tors Moscos the Monster Fly (1990)
MONSTER MONTH begins today!  Tremble in fear before the loathsome Moscos the Monster Fly Socket Poppers action figure!  Socket Poppers were action figures designed with detachable heads and limbs that could be swapped between the figures to make crazy combinations.  They are in the 3 3/4 inch scale and have classic Kenner style 5 points of articulation.  They were originally made by Matchbox Toys in 1990, as part of their "Con-Nec-Tors" line of action figures.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 figures didn't really take off, but a year later Ertl Toys picked up the license from Matchbox and rereleased them under the name "Socket Poppers."  There were a total of 16 figures in these toy lines.

Previously I have reviewed some other Socket Poppers monster figures, including:
Garza the Mummy

Alantide the Mutant, Trilor the Cyclops, and Grumo the Swamp Monster

Dr. Dracula the Vampire
