•Note that Launcelot wears a different style boot that Galahad and Ivan. Rounded knees and different embossed pattern.
•Mego used the less common spelling "Launcelot" as oppossed to "Lancelot". Either is correct, Launcelot was the name used in Sir Thomas Malory's Le Morte D'Arthur written in the 1400s.
• Speculation is that Mego may have based the head sculpt for the figure on Richard Burton's look as Arthur in the Broadway Musical Camelot.
The Super Knights were only released in these deluxe window boxes. Each had the same painted cardboard insert and the figures were secured to the insert with white twist ties.
The box backs feature photographs of early production samples
of the figures with shiny metallic finish on the armor. Lance's
sword in this shot is blue, probably a test sample.
In Germany, four of the Super Knights were offered in two packs, Launcelot was packed with the Black Knight. Scan courtesy of Gerhard.
