Bully is a PVC figure manufacturer. We talked about it when we presented the famous Smurf figures (entries #427 and #543). During the 80s and the 90s, there was a huge number of new cartoons, comics and toy action figures, and so had Bully: everything that was or could be popular at the time had their PVC figure line. Most of these series were really short, with just a few figures each, probably because Bully didn't want to make many figures of one particular series that might not sell later.
One of these short series was Biker Mice from Mars, a line of articulated action figures by Galoob and also a cartoon series. The figures made by Bully were the three you can see in the picture (the three main characters), plus the same three characters riding their motorbikes. From left to right: Throttle, Vinnie, Modo.
Interestingly, the Biker Mice were also reproduced by Yolanda. The Spanish company made exactly the same 6 figures, but in my opinión better sculpted and with weapons. The Bully versión of Throttle has a gun in his right hand, but the other two characters are unarmed. The pose of Modo suggest that its design might originally had some kind of weapon, maybe like Yolanda's Modo, who was reproduced carrying some kind of bazooka.
