More about Commander X:
In December 2008, Nemo Publishing released its first limited edition Mego-style action figure of the retro hero Commander X. There are four variants in this collection (Golden Age Commander X, 1950s Commander X, Western Knight, and the Barbary Knight) and more variants will be released in 2010.

Commander X is an integral character in “The Undersea Adventures of Capt’n Eli” graphic novels. He 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.

This collectible figure is created in a retro-style reminiscent of figures made by the Mego Corporation in the 1970s. Piscopo is working with Paul Clarke, known as “Dr. Mego,” to create this collection and additional variants are planned for release in 2010.

Photos of the figures can be viewed at this link.
