Fantanauti was GiG’s line of fantasy themed toys based on the Takara magnemo design. There were two figures, each with a matching steed. If you take a look at the two steed boxes, you can see pretty clearly the Magnemo ball joints. Like their I Micronauti brethren, they also featured the round rubber firing darts.

I owned a full set of these at one point and they were really quite awesome toys. The build quality was better than Mego’s and the wide range of accessories made them pretty versatile toys.

The human figures are Wisced, the armored villain, and Totila, the He-Man like hero.

Their respective steeds are Venefic, a winged dragon, and Uragan, a unicorn that is otherwise almost identical to its micro-cousins.
