Hard to Find MOC

Postby dublinjeff » 08 Mar 2013 09:15

Hi
As a bit of a newbie to AF collecting, I was just wondering which carded figures are very hard to find/rare etc...? Is there some figures that are more difficult to find? Appreciate any help, thanks

Series 2 I suppose would be the Minesweeper with maybe the Medic in the medium range.

Series 3 would be Snow Job, Flash, Doc, Scrap Iron with a fair few others close behind but people with larger collections than mine would probably add more into that list.

your pretty close to spot on.

series 1, helicopter pilot, night patrol, 2 para, aussie jungle fighter, desert rat all seem quite hard to find.

series 2, as above not so much on the medic i don't think they are quite readily available but folk tend to overprice them, i got one for £15 and one for a £5

series 3, they are all quite difficult to find really a part from ripcord, roadblock and gungho they always seem to be buyable.

series 2.

series 1 are the various figures modelled on Action Man

series 2 are the stiff limb teams IE red shadows, z force, q force, space force and sas

series 3 multi-jointed figures that cross over into the Hasbro GI Joe range.

Yep, the Toys archive is divided as such, 1982 (1), 1983 & 1984 (2), 1985 (3).

And, bizarrely, for a variant obsessive like me - the Black gloved version of Baron Ironblood MOC. It's eluded me for years!!
