This may be just a head, but it's part of one of the rarest toys out there. Collectors will pay top dollar for even a piece of a Stretch Serpent.
- Fact 1: The popular "Stretch Armstrong" line of toys was originally produced from 1976 until 1980, and grew to include a variety of characters.
- Fact 2: Stretch Serpent was the last toy in the first "Stretch" toyline, and was cancelled after a poor reception in test marketing, making it very rare.
- Fact 3: The "Stretch" figures were latex molds filled with a corn-syrup gel, and could be stretched up to four times their normal size without breaking.
- Fact 4: There are only two known copies of the full Stretch Serpent toy, so even this disembodied head holds great collecting value.
- Fact 5: The Stretch Armstrong toyline has spawned dozens of toys worldwide, an early-1990s revival, and even a feature film.
