AHI Monster Figures!

monster_ahimonsters

Here's a set of four AHI World's Greatest Super-Monsters action figures... well, three plus an extra Dracula, anyway! AHI, or Azrak Hamway International, was best known in the 1970s for their lines of "rack toys," usually very cheap things like Batmobiles, paratrooper Batman, Spider-Man, Planet of the Apes and more... all kinds of stuff (check out the 1979 AHI Catalog on the Plaid Stallions website to learn more about AHI). They also produced a line of 8" action figures to compete with Mego's more successful line! And unlike Mego's "Mad Monsters," AHI actually licensed the Universal Monsters! OK, so you could only tell that by looking at the Frankenstein Monster figure...
