Action Force Blades question

Postby Northwinds » 04 Aug 2004 21:54

I have a Blades figure that came in this box :

Afaik, the figure did not come with mines and minedetector.
But was packaged only in a plastic bag.
Would be strange anyway, for a pilot.

Question is : There are Blades figures that come in sealed vehicle driver boxes WITH mine detector and mines. What vehicle were these Blades figures packed with ?

I've read somewhere that during a GI JOE convention in the states, the Hasbro stand was selling loads of these sealed Action Force figures.
It would be great to hear about this from an "eyewitness" :wink:
I own myself a packaged Blades from the 1992 GI Joe convention :

I have both Blades and Hunter in the yellow plastic bubble. Blades has the tripwire accessories. I am reliably informed that these came direct from the palitoy factory in Burton upon trent before it closed.

Good theory......

I also have Jammer and Gaucho in the same packaging. I am sure they wouldn't have intended to used a window box on the command centre though!. However, I suppose they could have put the figures on display along side a photograph of the command centre?
