Stretch Armstrong was the first Stretch figure Kenner would release in the series. The concept of an action figure made out of latex and filled with corn syrup would be a big hit for Kenner and the line would continue for years.
Stretch saw release around the world and even saw a rerelease in the early 1990s by Cap Toys, Hollywood has considered a movie version for over a decade now everyone from Taylor Lautner to Jackie Chan have been slated to play the elastic one.
Photos are from the collection of Bill Frost Please do not ask me if I have these for sale, I sadly do not own a single stretch figure.

UK Edition Stretch Armstrong
Stretch saw release in the United Kingdom under the Denys Fisher banner. DF released a great many Kenner products and in turn Kenner brought the Denys Fisher invention "Spirograph" to the United States.
Like a lot of Denys Fisher items, the packaging is nearly identical to it's US counterpart save for the logo.
Japanese Stretch Armstrong
In Japan, Stretch was rebranded as "Mr. X". I'm really fond of the Japanese box.
Dig those pants!
The main variation of Mr.X is he's a brunette, not a blond. I don't know why they did this but it works!
