group shot of the figures sold in the UK as 'Action Force' series 3, the first Joes sold as the US characters and not recreated as new ones.

group shot of the figures sold in 1987 in the UK. these were still sold as 'Action Force', but were now sold in Hasbro style packaging. the AF Series 3 were sold in Pallitoy style packaging. The only 2 I'm missing are Heavy Metal and Frostbite. Cobras sold that year were Destro, Cobra trooper, CG, Storm Shadow, Tele-Viper, Snow Serpent, Eel, Ripper and Buzzer, Zartan and his swamp skier, Copperhead and Moccassin, Stinger and driver and Moray/Lampreys.

interestingly, Ace and the Skystriker, Stinger/driver, Moccassin/Copperhead, Destro, Zartan/skier, Cobra trooper, Storm Shadow, the FANG and the Whirlwind were sold again, despite already being part of Series 3. The Whirlwind was sold in 3 versions - Z-Force, series 3 AF and a mailaway Hasbro version. the series 3 version was basically over-stock with a modified box. the Hasbro and Z versions, like the Pallitoy and Hasbro packed S3 vehicles, had different stickers as well. the WHALE was later re-released in 1988. both UK versions are a different shade of green, both to the US version and each other.

I liked the info on the AF/GIJoe history.  I saw some of the earlier star wars type articulation Action Force guys at the con for pretty cheap.  I thought they'd cost more.
