Manglor Toy Commercial

Doug mentioned the Manglor Toy Line in his Weird Toys Post last month and Sean did a wonderful rendition of Manglord himself. A lot of you might not be familiar with how the toy was advertised, so here is one of the original Manglor Toy Commercials from the 1980s.

In it, you can see how the toy was “supposed” to work. Pay special attention to the “rip apart” portion of the ad. It is an amazing claim, that did not work as advertised.

  1. Now that is a very nicely done commercial, it makes me want to get my hands on one of those Manglor Dinosaurs…oh wait, no I don’t. ;)
