Disney "Phantom Blot" Figure (JusToys) *SOLD*
[RARE]
$20.00

(Sorry, out of stock...SOLD for $20.00) Disney "Phantom Blot" Figure, from JusToys. "A curious character called "The Blot" is making a monkey out of the cops. He's a criminal genius, but the only loot that interests him is cheap dime-store cameras! It takes Mickey Mouse to straighten out this case, but the Blot hates pesky detectives. Can Mickey crack the Camera Caper and put the Blot under wraps?"...so postulates the *lengthy* copy on the back of the packaging for this GREAT poseable action figure from 20 years ago! The Phantom Blot, or simply "The Blot", made his first appearance in "Mickey Mouse Outwits The Phantom Blot" by the legendary artist/writer Floyd Gottfredson, which was published in the form of daily newspaper comic strips from May 20 to September 9, 1939. In this story, Chief O'Hara hires Mickey to capture this new criminal who calls himself The Blot. According to O'Hara, he is the smartest thief they've ever met. Detective Casey, however, calls this new criminal a looney. The only thing he steals is cameras of a special type and he smashes them open on the spot. The strange crime and the motive behind it resembles closely the Sherlock Holmes story "The Adventure of the Six Napoleons". In the end, Blot is captured and, for once, actually unmasked. The Phantom Blot's gaunt face and thin mustache were reportedly based on the features of Walt Disney himself!! While still being a criminal he usually operates as the mastermind behind gangs rather that a common crook. He prefers pulling strings rather than being directly involved in many cases. During his career he has gained large amounts of money and he has invested them in business. His relative wealth allows him to finance his ambitious plans. He is a skillful hypnotist and occasionally uses this skill to force others to do his bidding. He has even ordered Mickey himself to act as a criminal in order to frame him. He has quite a talent in acting. The Blot often operates in disguise and has acted under various aliases and identities, adopting many different personalities to suit his parts. He has some scientific knowledge, mainly in physics, mechanics and biology, and has often used this in his plans. He has invented various devices he uses as weapons. He claims to be an artistic nature and has considerable skill in painting, which he uses to create forgeries of famous works of art. He later proceeds in stealing the original and leaving his copy behind. He seems to have ways to get information about everything that is going on in the city and even from the police headquarters. His ways of persuading others to follow him include using their own greed, promising them means of revenge or blackmailing them. He seems to enjoy seducing citizens with no criminal records to act as his agents. He has a fairly good knowledge of psychology and is very skilled in spreading fear to his victims, causing them to doubt their relationships and in some cases even their own sanity. He often uses their vanity to turn them into pawns. He is a master of escape. Even if the police do manage to capture and imprison him, which rarely happens, he is soon out again. Other times he takes adavntage of the terrain or weather. Though he desires money and power his greatest lust is for fame. Some of his plans have no monetary gain for him but their purpose is to spread fear to the public, adding to his reputation. The Blot is himself very vain and his desire for money and power is only surpassed by his desire to immortalize his name in "the annals of crime". Along with Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy, Scrooge McDuck, Gyro Gearloose, Super Goof, Eega Beeva, Minnie Mouse, and Chief O'Hara have all encountered the Blot, and thus successfully tried to stop him. The Blot sometimes teams up with other bad guys like the Beagle Boys and Mad Madam Mim, who is madly in love with him...while he considers her a lunatic. The Blot was one of a set of characters, like the Beagle Boys that almost never entered the "parallel universe" of movie and TV adventures of Mickey, Donald and crew. Anyway...probably far more than you needed to know about the Blot, but sometimes Mr. Pop Top gets a bit carried away! Here is your chance to add this obscure, OUT OF PRODUCTION figure to your Disneyana collection. Unopened and unplayed, card is C-8, bubble is perfect and unyellowed. Out of stock.
