Popeye has a long history and has always been popular. Ever since his first appearance in 1929, Popeye has been one of the most recognizable pop culture icons. Thanks to him, spinach consumption increased 33% in between 1931-36.
Even though I knew I liked Popeye, this was the figure I never knew I wanted. As popular as he is in print media and marketing, there aren’t too many action figures of him. That’s why it’s refreshing to see companies like Mezco take a crack at it. They not only got a hit, but a home run with this one. For your usual One:12 Collective price you get a really great figure with some pretty cool accessories.
