8" Captain Patch Action Figure

In 1975, Matchbox/Lesney included a knock-off Captain Patch figure with its Fighting Furies Sea Fury Pirate Ship Carrying Case playset. The head sculpt is a mirror copy of the Mego Captain Patch head, and the outfit is a copy of Jean Lafitte's Mego outfit (without the vest and lace collar). The body type is the same one used for Captain Eagle. The figure did not come with any weapons.
