A 1973 Christmas present.

At long last, Captain Peg Leg!!!!!!! Posted by Picasa

Matchbox Fighting Furies Capt. PEG-LEG 1973 MIB!!!

I received this action figure in the Christmas of '73, so I was 6 years old. I had always remembered this figure but I forgot it's name and manufacturer. I just figured it out through some detective work on ebay (that's where I get many of my photos for this blog). This guy had a removeable peg leg with a 'treasure map' inside. I unscrewed his leg so much my mom would say: "Joe would you quit playing with that damn leg, you're gonna break it!!".
Mom had such a way with words.
