Re: Cheap GI Joe DVDs in the UK, (two for under a fiver!).

I imagine that GI Joe DVDs are fairly commonplace in America, but I'd not noticed any over here until lately. For that price . . . No, not common at all. While the DVD's are more readily available in the States, they are RARELY cheap. G.I. Joe in general was NEVER realistic. But the cartoon was far...

Re: I only collect loose AF but sometimes the box comes with it

Man, I DO collect boxed stuff, and I don't think I have that many AF boxes. Impressive.

Re: ACTION FORCE : RED DAWN -----Coming 2008

I just checked in for an update on this project.

Can't wait to see it finished.

I haven't been keeping that close of an eye on it, but I've been aware of it. How is it being released? Will it actually be printed? and shipped out to people? Or will it just be available on-line?

Re: Action Force Combat Kit by Salters

Those are gorgeous. This is exactly the sort of thing I was asking about in the Halloween/Role Play thread.

Re: How does Ironblood's conversion to Cobra Commander fit...

Granted, I haven't read much of Battle Action Force, but I am aware of the basic story. The way I've always seen it is that Ironblood :baron: temporarily impersonated Cobra Commander :cobracommander:. The 2 may have even planned it together. Imagine how hard it would be to track an international ter...

Re: What happened to Action Force after 1985?

1986 - No new releases. Looks like this was the year Palitoy was bought out by Hasbro. . . 1987 - Action Force was relaunched in the US GI JOE style packaging with International Heroes replacing A Real American Hero. That makes more sense. I was never quite clear on the time line and there always s...

Re: What happened to Action Force after 1985?

Thanks Roger, that's pretty much what I thought, but very concisely put! If I ever get as far as a follow-up gallery I may well quote that for the index page! By all means, quote away :D If needed I can double check some facts, as most of that was off the top of my head. It would be nice to get lis...

Re: What happened to Action Force after 1985?

Are you telling me that an American has to set you Brit's right on your own toy line LOL :doc: For the most part, yes, from 1985 on it was just the American G.I. Joe line. At first it was still called "Action Force." Then it became "G.I. Joe: the Action Force" around '87 I think, and finally just "G...

Re: New Red Shadows figures???

The price point is FAAAARRR from set in stone. But it may be unavoidable. This will be an expensive undertaking no matter what direction it goes in. Compare it to Master Collectors convention sets. the price per figure in the 15 figure boxed set is typically around $18. Then their single carded figu...

New Red Shadows figures??? Need your opinion.

Since I've re-opened my shop, Captain Cosmos Collectibles [yep, shameless plug] I've been looking into the possibility of exclusive toys. The only real problem I've run into is that they would have to be ordered in rather large quantities. Now if I find the right toy, that's not an issue. But I HAVE...
