I just picked up my first foreign Joes
(other than Canadian Joes which I love for their itsy bitsy feet and their
talkers funny words). I got these from a guy on EBay who came across
some store stock in his native land of Italy. These guys came untouched
in their original boxes in about C9 condition with arms and heads unattached.
I restrung them a couple of days before Christmas and had them lying about
my Mom's house. Well, didn't think much of them over the next couple
of days and opened them up on Christmas day. Talk about some Deja
Vu. Vintage Joes out of the box on Christmas morning is a pretty
good memory. Anyway, here are the pictures.
The figure on the left is a muscle
body basic figure in blue shorts. I believe it is the Italian version
of the carded muscle body Sea Adventurer. The guy on the right is
a blond hair (Air Adventurer) in a pair of black trousers, black turtleneck
sweater, black shoulder holster, black lebel revolver, and black short
boots. The best of all however is that this particular rascal is
an eagle eye commando. Pretty nifty stuff.
