Re: Variant Stinger arms

I've seen this on a number of '83 figures, Airborne and Snow Job come to mind. Eddie, I think if you take the figures you have apart you'll come across the same differences. I think it might be a running change from figures that were initially released in '83 but then carried over into '84. Yep, th...

Action Man Patrol

Check out what I just won. Can't wait to get this in the mail. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=390157388321&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT I've picked up a few minor Action Man Patrol items over the last few years, but I NEVER expected to find a MIP set in this condition. Especially not...

Re: JOECON 2010-- RED SHADOWS ? ACTION FORCE ????

Well said Goof and welcome back. Oh I lurk about. It's rarely more than a few weeks in a stretch that I don't pop in and read up on a few things. Just usually don't have anything relevant to say. Not like I can share childhood memories of :shadow: when I don't have any :cry: But when something need...

Re: JOECON 2010-- RED SHADOWS ? ACTION FORCE ????

I think i may have said things i didn't quite mean and have validated the US Joe fan position. They loved their own toys as kids and i loved mine. I have an emotional attachment to the toys i had as a kid and in my opinion no toys can equal or better them. While the red shadows exposes the US colle...

Re: Palitoy Series 3 Differences/ Variations...

I think I have the solution. It's a Hunter with a Python Troopers waist: http://yojoe.com/action/89/pythontrooper.shtml I don't have them both in front of me. I think the Python Troopers belt might be a lighter gray, but it might be close enough to go unnoticed if your not thinking about it. Also, I...

Re: Palitoy Series 3 Differences/ Variations...

I couldn't answer that, as never repeated any when I started to buy Hasbro as a kid, but to add further confusion, I have two different stamp marks on Hunter's butt, one labelled with same info on Cobra Officer: C 82-83 Hasbro Made In Hong Kong and on the other: Made in China H-1 don't like where t...

UK ROC costumes . . . Where did they show up?

I found 2 UK Rise of Cobra costumes on eBay this weekend. Completely different than the US costumes. So far I've seen a Snake Eyes, and an Accelerator Suit. Not being from the UK, I'd like to know 3 things: 1) Where did they show up? 2) Did anything else like this show up? And 3) can anyone get me a...

Re: NewsFlash!

I've been looking over all the new pictures today. Love 'em, just love 'em. Especially since a Vamp is involved. . . . But something is just not adding up here. Obviously the evidence suggests that the light blue Flash came before he gray Flash. And the gray Flash made it all the way to full product...

Re: How many vehicles were different?

Also, I think it's been mentioned, but the Tiger Sting was released with the VAMP Mk II mold in the UK, while in the US, they used the Stinger mold. Actually that's not true Dan. The US version used the Vamp Mk1 with the Mk2's missile launcher. The variant UK version is the Stinger body with the Mk...

Re: Action Force T-shirts

I've been collecting G.I. Joe related T-shirts for years. I've seen a few vintage style Action Man, plenty of modern style Action Man, and I think a few Hasbro era Action Force T-shirts. But I've never seen a single Plaitoy Action Force T-shirt. Can't say they don't exist, but I can't say they do ei...
