We’re back with another great G.I. Joe related product! I’ve been searching the web for all things Joe and sometimes I come across something truly special, something rare or something genuinely weird.
In the 80’s everybody tried getting in on the G.I. Joe hype train. This puzzle was released by a Spanish company called Dalmau Charles PLA. The company was founded in 1904 and was mainly specialized in the publication of school books, biographies, encyclopedias. They were also a pioneer in Spain for board games and role playing games. In the 80’s, they also released G.I. Joe products, mainly several of these puzzles in plastic cubes.
This version has 6 different puzzles (each side of a cube shows a different part of the image). We’ve got:
– The Crimson Twins (Tomax & Xamot)
– The A.W.E. Striker
– The H.I.S.S.
– Shipwreck (and Polly)
I’ve been looking online for other examples and found one in a completely closed box… Hasbro just started this with their figures, so they weren’t the first to do this. This one has the SkyStriker, Snowcat, Moray Hydrofoil, the Silver Mirage and 2 battle scenes (one displaying the Motorized Action Packs, the other one showing a battle on land and air).
I haven’t bought this one, it’s a bit overpriced if you ask me (currently at €50). But I’ll be looking further online to find other ones and more G.I. Joe themed stuff. See you around!
Happy Collecting and YoJoe!
