The purpose of the FAMOUS COVERS line was to recreate, and perhaps, in the minds of some, improve upon the days of MEGO, the cloth-costumed super-heroes of the 1970's. Toy Biz set out to create a series of 9 inch (although they were advertised as 8-inch to keep the connection with Mego) action figures of modern day Marvel characters, and make them at least as cool as the Megos. The end result was an immensely cool line of action figures, with the entire boxed set listed as follows.
(17 & 18) MISTER FANTASTIC/INVISIBLE WOMAN - This Target Exclusive two-pack at least gave us half of the Fantastic Four. (19 & 20) SPIDER-WOMAN/SPIDER-MAN - This two-pack featured the Julia Carpenter Spider-Woman, the one in the black uniform with the white trim, and came with a special edition Spider-Man in his black uniform. (21 & 22) ELECTRO/SPIDER-MAN - This figure came in a two-pack with a slightly re-colored standard Spider-Man. (30) WOLVERINE II - Wolvie in his brown and gold uniform.
