I’ve read an interesting review of the entire (or almost) line of Popeye action figures at toyriffic. This is the entire collection apart from maybe an accessory or two. This is a Mezco line by the way.
Figures like Popeye have more than one release. Some figures like Bluto have, in one series, a button you can press on his back to swing an uppercut, while his second release, Sailor Bluto, has a throwing movement instead of an uppercut motion. Popeye also has the usual movements we’ve been accostumed to see, and according to Eric at Toyrrific the hardest for him to get was Alice the Goon.
