Matchbox Fighting Furies Ghost of Cap’n Kidd

In the 1970s Matchbox produced an action figure line called the Fighting Furies. Of those figures produced is the Ghost of Cap’n Kidd. If I remember correctly, it was a mail-a-way only figure. In the USA the figure came in a plain white box, however in the UK, the figure was packaged in a very ornate box and available for retail sale.

A couple of recent eBay auctions prompted me to write this article as it has become apparent that this figure and box has become quite a collectible piece. It always was collectible, I remember in the late 1990s, where this figure could have been purchased for $75 to $200.
