#524 COMICS SPAIN – FLASH GORDON and TERMINATOR (1990 and 1992)


The Terminator figure is one of the most interesting figures in the whole Comics Spain catalogue. It does not belong to any series of figures, it is the only figure made from the Terminator movies. The cast is great and represents Arnold Schwarzenegger as seen in the movie Terminator 2: Judgement Day from 1991: black leather outfit, face half human, half machine and shotgun on hand.

The figure is licensed by Carolco, and has a copyright from 1992. It is not very easy to find nowadays. Being a cult carácter from a very famous film, it is very sought-after.


Flash Gordon is another carácter that does not belong to any series in particular, it is again the only figure made of him. It is difficult to identify at first sight, because he seems to be wearing a different outfit, than the one we usually see in the movies or in the comics, maybe the reference was the Revell model from 1965 shown here. The figure carries his helmet on one hand and has a pistol in the other hand.

This figure is copyrighted in 1990 and is licensed by K.F.S. (King Features Syndicate).
