Re: Mountain & Arctic

Was the AF-9 repainted to turn it into a Space Force Defender?

And as for a AM version of this vehicle,they already had the Snowcat which was based on the AM Powerhog.

Re: Cartoon-styled GI Joes in Forbidden Planet, including AF's!

Which Forbidden Planet was it,as there are 2 different chains.One goes by the name Forbidden Planet International.It occurred during the early 90's when the 2 owners split the company,so now we have 2 different chain of stores both with the same name.
