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.
