U.N.C.L.E. enters the standee era

U.N.C.L.E. standees are based on this publicity still.

Standees are taken from this publicity still.

There hasn’t exactly been a lot of new collectibles sold in recent decades related to The Man From U.N.C.L.E. television series, which originally ran 1964 to 1968. However, on eBay, there are now U.N.C.L.E. standees for sale.

There’s a new, licensed 5-foot-9 standee of ROBERT VAUGHN AS NAPOLEON SOLO and a matching standee the same size of DAVID MCCALLUM AS ILLYA KURYAKIN. They sell for $36.95 plus $14.95 shipping and handling.

Also available are 20-inch versions of each actor/character for $19.50 plus $4 shipping and handling. (Click HERE for information about Vaughn/Solo or HERE for McCallum/Kuryakin.)

The standees are taken from a 1960s publicity still used in the end titles of the third and fourth seasons of the original series. That still is also known for what some fans view as a questionable choice in footwear for Solo. Interestingly, the feet of the Solo standees appear to have been darkened a bit, making it harder to notice he’s wearing white socks and clogs with his business suit.
