Who is Krunch?

Postby atomicjay » 13 Apr 2010 03:28

Just saw a MIB Krunch figure on eBay-uk recently and I'm hoping someone can explain where this figure belongs. I know it is a repackage of the HOF Heavy Duty with boxing gear, but was he a part of the DIC animated series or something else. Any info is appreciated.

no he was never in any animation, he appeared in at least a comic strip and had a data file as well

he may have appeared in more comics but I have few and only know he appeared in at least one of the issues

AFAIK Krunch was an exclusive with Action Man Spaghetti Shapes in the UK. Collect the tokens and send off for him. That's how I got mine anyway. I know that doesn't explain his place in the Action Man realm though!

:-D Oh, I I've still got him...never been out of his box & played with. The spaghetti was made by Heinz, & was very pleasant tasting.

I must of eaten loads of different types of junk food, growing up, just to be able to collect enough tokens to send off for free stuff, I got though shed loads of Rice Krispies to get that Captain Scarlet Action figure back in the early 90's.

& who can forget the Star Wars Tazo's?

my friend used to work in a co-op and as the multipack bags had them loose in the outer bag used to rip them open to get at them...
