Nemo Publishing has released its fourth action figure variant in the Commander X collection. The Commander X Barbary Knight is a limited edition, Mego-style, eight-inch collectible action figure available for sale exclusively at www.captneli.com.
Commander X is an integral character in Jay Piscopo’s all-ages graphic novel series, The Undersea Adventures of Capt’n Eli. Commander X is an amnesiac who has been sent from the future to save the earth from inevitable destruction. He is a based on the Depression-era heroes of the comic book and movie serials of the 1930s. The collectible figure is created in a retro-style reminiscent of figures made by the Mego Corporation in the 1970s.
Piscopo worked with Paul Clarke, known as “Dr. Mego,” to create this collection. Other limited edition Commander X eight-inch Mego–style action figures currently available are Golden Age Commander X, 1950’s Commander X and the Western Knight. Each figure is $19.95 plus shipping.
