A more likely scenario, as is the case with Toltoys, the figures were opened and played with and very few collectors kept the figures in MOC condition. I have some Toltoys cardbacks, but they are uber rare. I couldn't wait to tear into when I was young, now the figures are worth nothing more than their US counterparts. I suspect the general Euro populace were more content to play than collect, which is good too.

A lot of Star Wars over stock was pulped of buried to get rid of it back in the day...it's amazing just how many loose figures are still available now , certainly more about now than back in the late 80's early 90's @ toy fairs & ebay.
More news, as its made, from new Action Force!

Hello

These figures are definately out there 100%,my guess is a mixture of some being still in a warehouse/old shop stock somewhere and the others being owned by die hard collectors.

I remember b.a.t being a real bastard to find even as a kid,leatherneck was also a pain in the arse to get hold of!

Also its worth remembering that some american collectors go for action force stuff as well and they can be more completist than most of us,as I said to you before Andi I sold 6 hasbros moc to a ebayer from the states shortly before I met you and sold you the rest of my collection :-(

May be worth a look at hong kong/macau ebay as well,if you can translate!

Good luck with it mate.
I'm always looking for gi joe merchandise to buy/trade
