I had manglor mountain... I remember accidentally leaving a manglor guy in the ooze for about 2 years... When I pulled it out, he was mostly disolved... While the action figures sucked, that was amusing.

I had one of those. Then I had two. Then I had three. Then my mom saw what I'd done.

The Manglord is pimp.

I do not remember these.

I must have been too busy watching the Thundercats.

Dude, I totally remember the commercial for these growing up. The tag line was something like: "Stretch them, squeeze them, pull them apart." /*creepy voice*

My God, who would buy their kids "MANGLOBS"?!?

Oh. Wait...

If you leave your GI Joes, Ninja Turtles and M.U.S.C.L.E. figures all up on the roof of the house, by the end of summer they've become Manglors.

Oh, and Hot Wheels rule forever and ever.

My mom told me this story about how when I was quite young, maybe 4 or 5, my dad saw the commercial for these things and rushed out and bought me one. He brought it home and showed it to me, then ripped off a body part and stuck it back on. I had a total freak out panic attack and everytime I saw that damn thing I started balling my eyes out.

Into the dumpster it went.

I dont remember these things at all. I wouldn't have played with them either. They look lame to me....

bless X-E and all it's random 80's childhood trivia. My pre-school boy friend had 3 of those suckers adn the bastard wouldn't share... no wonder we didn't last. That and I hid his mangalodemon under a dresser where it shriveled and fell apart because we'd systematically pulled the head, hands, arms, legs feet and horns off the bastard every day for a week. Mmm childhood.

I have only the vaguest reccollection of these things. I remember seeing the ads, but never was lucky enough to have the toys.

Hey, I wonder if the 'stuff' they were made out of would allow the Dr. Moreau in you to tear, say, the head off of a MangloDactyl, and stick it on MangLord's body? Now THAT would be dope. They look cool enough in ummolested form...Think how sweet it would be to have a mixed n' matched battalion of multicolor MUTANT mutants at your disposal.

Man...Too bad they were so fragile. Still, I'm hittin' eBay later.
2003-02-08 05:56:48 PM  
even after watching the commercial, i have absolutely no recollection of these.
2003-02-08 05:58:47 PM  
MaxxLarge--don't bother, i just looked and there were none.
2003-02-08 06:18:01 PM  

Ah, well. Thanks

I had the Manglordemon, but I couldn't get the arm back on when I ripped it off. I thought maybe I had found a weak spot in the materials, so I ripped off the head and tried to put IT back on. When that didn't work, I put the pieces in the egg and hoped magic would happen. I opened the egg two days later... and the manglordemon still sucked. This toy pissed me off like no other.

I don't know what the guy who wrote this article was smoking, but these things sucked. I was so excited to get one of these things when I was a kid. I ripped the arms and legs off, and no matter what the turd who wrote this says, they never stayed reattached for more than a few minutes.

the reason these things are so obscure? because they sucked ass.

Manglors only stick back together for good little boys and girls.

I have to agree with PsykicJohn and Mookiemcdermot, my brother got one of these and I ripped an arm off. It never stuck back and brother was mad at me for a week. Although they looked neat, these things were pieces of junk. I think I recall them being on the consumer reports 10 worst toys of the year but I'm too lazy to look that up.
2003-02-08 10:18:43 PM  
well holy crap... just yesterday i was wondering what these things were called and wondering what ever happened to the one i ripped to shreds... manglodactyl... think my parents didnt know they could be put together so they threw em out... along with all my oldskool transformers :(
