Character Collectible Spotlight: Tarzan!

Ok, let me preface this installment by saying that, admittedly, I don't go out of my way to find photos of Tarzan collectibles on eBay to add to my archives, so this installment will be far from complete in the number of different collectibles featuring Lord Greystoke... but I hope you'll get a kick out of what I have to show you anyway!
