Just a quick update this time around on another pre-order that finally made it’s way to Belgium. It’s the Valaverse Action Force Sgt. Slaughter, delivered by the good people over at BBTS.
During #YoJoeJune, Hasbro announced that they will be making an official new G.I. Joe Classified Sgt. Slaughter figure, but while we wait for that one to get made, we already have a 6″ figure of the Sarge in the Action Force series.
The figure comes with removable hat and sunglasses, four pair of hands, a stand, a knife, and a big ass revolver. The revolver and knife can be placed in holsters on either leg.
That’s it for now. Keep your chin up and see you soon!
a bit of history first. As I mentioned in previous posts, I started collecting G.I. Joe in 1987 (they were called just toys back then). Although the UK is only 85 miles (at a glance) from here (about 60 miles of those would be water), I never owned a piece of Action Force. Since I’m focusing back on collecting again and have been rummaging eBay and other sites recently, this had to change. And I can say I scored a big one right from the start.
I found the Battle Tank on eBay for a very reasonable price. The stickers aren’t really where they should be, but they are in good condition and the gun tip is missing (if anybody has a spare one lying around, let me know). I also noticed that the battery compartment is showing a bit of corrosion, but I don’t have any batteries to test it right now. Overall the vehicle is in good shape and I’m glad I can add it to my collection.
Let me know what you think!
P.S. I’ve bought some more stuff that is due to arrive soon, so keep a look out on my blog and follow me on Twitter.
