Ad for Dengar Mail-Away Offer

Man, ain't this the most imposing-looking action figure you've ever seen? The perspective, Dengar appearing as though he's towering over the viewer, makes the figure look like some super-villain pulled out of the Marvel Comics universe. And the lighting, combined with the lines of the figure's armor and the black-and-white presentation, give the whole thing an Art Deco-ish appeal. It's a really interesting ad to look at.

Obviously, the focus of the advertisement is Palitoy's "Bounty Hunter" mail-away promotion, which allowed kids to receive free toys in exchange for the nameplates clipped off of the packages of toys they'd bought previously.

This particular ad was supplied by collector Henrik Berndt.
