I decided to try repainting a Doc Mego Bruce Wayne head as Jet Jungle, since I'll never own an original.  I have the AJ Spy outfit and am just waiting for some information about how those boots/pants differ from Jet Jungle's.

Not bad.  Who is Jet Jungle? I have no real interest in the figuere but curious was he a super hero? GI JOE type? Who is he?

Didn't you once find a Wondergirl for .50 cents at a flea market once? You may one day get a jet jungle for .75 cents!

Jet Jungle is a hero/adventurer type character from South Africa.  He was used to promote Jungle Oats  and Black Cat Peanut Butter.  He also had his own radio show.  After doing some digging I found out that the other characters from his show were his black panther named Jupiter, his girlfriend Samantha Muller, and a friend that was a scientist, named Professor Giuseppe "Spaghetti" Valetti.  Here's a pic of Samantha and Prof Spaghetti from a bicycle ad:

Looks good Ames. I don't know if you noticed or not, but the hair was only highlighted white instead of entirely painted. You can see the flesh color in the low points of his hair.

I noticed, but I actually had assumed it was hair rub.

It definitely looks like hair rubs, but that's all factory oddly enough.

I love sand.
I'd like to see the other two characters as customs.

Ric, I have found no mentions of figure versions of the other two characters.  Jet Jungle's Wiki page even states that there was a toy made by Mego, so I doubt it.  I had enough trouble finding that image above.  I also found a page run by a woman who is trying to archive old South African radio shows and posted some other JJ memorabilia, like a decal from the fan club.  It all looks like the same basic image, or very similar ones, though.  I dropped her an email to see if she can tell me anything else, but I haven't heard back from her.

Looks great Amy.  I made one too, with an original Bruce head, before the CTVT ones came out.  BTW, the original Jet pants had flares.

I'm working on flaring a pair of pants right now, but I don't know if I like the way they're coming along
