Bronze Bombers - 1988


In 1988, the toy company Olmec - specializing in African-American themed toys - released a line of 3 3/4" G.I.Joe-like action figures named the Bronze Bombers. The action figures touted, "They stand for justice, and they never lose!" The assortment included twelve figures - some individually packaged, some included with vehicles.

While the project was very ambitious and produced interesting toys, unfortunately the figures did not match up with the quality of the Hasbro counterparts.

In 1997, Olmec released a superb Bronze Bombers boxed set. These figures were made from older Hasbro G.I.Joe action figure molds and quickly disappeared from toy shelves.
