Actually may be £40 for the Snakes as Bazooka was about £30, it wasn't that much in comparison to todays prices, Dusty went for £100ish.

Yeah, I did see the CG. I think there's more of a demand now. I think I got my Air Tight for £7.99, now they regulary go for £20 plus.

The Flint and Destro are my favourites!

I've also got a MOC Action Force Tomax and Xamot.

You're right though, Hasbro Action Force MOC are few and far between. When you think about it weren't the early series not released in Europe? If they were only released in the UK then production numbers would be low?

Yeah I think they were in europe although dont quote me on that I know a guy in France who collects Gi Joe but I have never asked him if it was Gi joe or Action force over there I will ask.
If they were only in the U.K it would explain the low numbers, I also think that theres not that big a market for it over here like Gi joe in the states so not many have come onto the market for sale unlike Star Wars Transformers ect which has big followings.

Yeah could be I also know someone in Germany but I seem to remember him saying he had Gi joe but he is alot younger than me so he might have had the later series with Gi joe the Action Force wrote on the cards maybe?? it's something to find out though and is increasingly interesting me more into the Action Force hasbro version carded figures

Welcome to the forum, snakeeyes! I may well ask to use some of your pics in the archives, if that's okay with you?

The Kraken wrote:Yeah the later ones seem to be around but like you say the early ones arent, I picked up a Televiper from America for only £40 but thats it!! I saw a re-sealed shipwreck in America recently did you see that one? he wouldnt ship here though(typical)
I know someone who has got a Stormshadow but wont part with it for anything and I mean anything believe me I have offered lol(joking) :kraken:
I have storm shadow and I would not part with it for the world either, somebody out there has a huge haul which will soon be uncovered. I recently found a toy shop with case fulls of vehicles and figures, some sealed that they had not sold. I picked them all up for the price they used to be with 25% off ha ha. Lucky or what?

The Kraken wrote:Hi everyone quick question.
What happend to all the carded Action Force International Heroes carded figures you just cant get them anywhere apart from Airtight and Snake Eyes and a few of the later ones but as for any of the others you can never find any for sale I missed a Crimson Guard a while back and that is the only one I have ever seen on an Action Force card.
I find it really frustrating as the Action Force ones are the only versions I collect.

:kraken:
I often wonder myself, there will be a shed load left to be uncovered somewhere. There is no logical explanation for it as the red palitoy stuff is really common. I have got loads of stuff but it has taken me painstaking searching and lots of money to amass it and sometimes even bribe it off people who were unwilling to sell. Will be posting pics soon.
