The Fantasma Hang-Up’s were produced by RGE in Brazil in 1983. The Hang-Up’s were a free give-away collectible with Fantasma comic books and fully licensed by King Features Syndicate.
RGE (Rio Gráfica E Editora) located in Rio de Janeiro Brazil, a subsidiary of ‘Grupo Globo’ was founded by Roberto Marinho in 1952, ceasing operations in 1986. For over 35 years RGE published a multitude of comic books, magazines and collectible pop culture related collectibles.
The Fantasma Hang-Up’s measure 4” in diameter and are made of tin. The set is made up of 3 Hang-Up’s and were provided in a clear plastic pack, glued to the front covers of Fantasma comic book numbers 330 thru to 332. A different design was provided with each comic book, with a small hole located at the top of the Hang-Up and the reverse left blank.
Similar images to that found on the Fantasma Hang-Up’s could also be seen on the cover of Fantasma comic books. Below we see number 360 published by RGE in 1985 (2 years later) as seen on one of the Hang-Ups.
