An Old (and Boring) Toy is New Again

Lido made several Zorro toys back in 1957-1959, but some of them were in awkward and kind of boring poses.  The 4 - inch figure with his hand pointing weakly downward and his sword oddly in his left hand might just be the worst.  Toy collectors prefer the Marx Toys version over this one...

I got one that had lost his sword, so I rehabilitated him... or you could say I modified or converted him.  With hot water, I softened his gun arm and raised it into an action position, and I drilled a hole to give him the secret papers...

A limp and boring toy became ZORRO and THE SECRET PLAN !!!

I took one that was complete and bent him using hot water, too.  He transformed from weak and boring Zorro into ACTION ZORRO the Avenger!!!

Zorro, Zorro, ZORRO!
