Description
Mangalords came out around the time of Dungeons and Dragons toys. They were squishy action figures that you could rip apart and put back together again. An accessory of the line was a tank/pit that you filled with soapy water and lowered the figures into. Once the figures (that had been ripped apart) were dipped into the soapy water, the "wounds" would "heal" and you could not tell they figure had been ripped apart. There were about 5 figurees in the line. Each one came with an egg kind of thing to keep them in because if you let them sit out they got easily dirty (Hair, Dirt, ect..)

The toy line was actually called Manglor. They were really cool. I remember seeing them around '83 or so and wanted the main guy (swamp-thing looking alien manglor). My mom thought it was disgusting though and wouldn't buy it. LOL

I remember this toy. I too am looking for one also. The commercial was also pretty cool (they harmonized the name Manglor through the whole commercial!)

I had one of these figures when I was young and it was a pretty cool toy. I wish somebody had a picture of one of them. I had the swamp guy that jeremy spoke of in his comment. I remember I left him out too long and he did dry up, and the toy also loved to attract cat hair. Somebody has to have a pic of this toy!!

I had the purple t-rex/dragon because they were out of the green man. When I tore him apart my uncle almost gave me a lickin' because he thought I was breaking my toys fresh outta the box. Come to think of it I don't remember it sticking back together that easily. Can someone put my mind at ease and let me know if the t-rex was one of the ones you could tear apart or not??

Yes! My good friend had one and I remember playing with it. They disappeared quickly and I never owned one, but it was cool (until it was covered in hair/dirt). I do remember it working well at first when we played with it. Also, you could pull off the head and an arm and make the head grow off the arm stump, or the hand come out of the neck, etc. Fun times.

I knew they exsisted! I had the green man. I can still remember the way he smelled. It was a strange scent, but I really liked the smell. I remember ripping his arm off, but I don't remember it sticking back on that well. Maybe I didn't use the warm soapy water though. I would love to see one of these again.

I remember the commercials. Manglors are made of the strangest stuff on earth. You can stretch them, squeeeeeeeeze them, pull them apart. And they always go back together. The commercial may have been exaggerating slightly. I remember seeing a consumer reports show that had kids on that said the Manglors were a ripoff because they didn't come together so well after being torn.

I had the green/purple man and the bubbling volcanic mountain with the iron maiden. The mountain was very cool you put the figure in the iron maiden and pumped the tongue of the gargoyle on the front and the figure would rise covered in clear slime(not soapy water as said above). I waited a long time before ripping the figure apart at one of the arms and it never looked right after that. I also don't remember the soapy water fixing it. I still have the volcanic mountain. Maybe I should post pictures sometime.

Yes! After all these years I was begining to think I'd just imagined the comercial. I remeber them tearing the green guy apart and I think the volcano was in the same commercial. Would love to see one of these.

I have looked for info about this for a long time glad to see other people remember them. By any chance does anyone remember a spider man figure with a clear forearm that you could squeeze to shoot a web like substance that was made in the early to mid 80's

Had one of these as a child as well, glad i found this page cause no one i know remembers them so i thought i was going crazy. I remember its smell as well but dont remember the soapy water trick, the one i had was a pit you lowered him into and it was full of the 80's famous green slime.
