No he's not a Monster but Mr. Rock is one of Lincoln International's greatest knock off figures. Obviously marketed in 1976 as a reaction to the popularity of Mego's Star Trek line, Mr. Rock is just a little too blatant, which is why we love him so. .
Carded Mr Rock is a challenge to find and pay for. This example has been lifted as you can see he is missing his fantastic space accessories. If you have a carded Mr Rock for sale Please contact me.
It's sort of what you might imagine Tony Randall would look like as Mr. Spock. Given with his budget nature, Mr Rock's gun looks like a GI Joe Flare Gun and his "Space communicator" looks like a transister radio that would come with a barbie clone, it's even pink! Here's tip, if you need one of these, search old Barbie clone knock offs on ebay, it's that easy.
There are colour versions of Mr Rock's sweater, the one on the left is textured material while on the right is smoother and closer to a Mego Star Trek figure. I have no idea which figure came first and are equally rare at this point.
