Argentina

In approximately 1983 or 1984, the Argentinean toy company Plastirama acquired molds from Hasbro and produced their own G.I.Joe figures under the title "Comandos Heroicos". In addition to re-using the Hasbro molds to create copies of the U.S. versions, they also produced several original figures exclusive to Argentina. Some of the Argentinean exclusive figures were very similar to ones released earlier in Brazil.

The plastic used by Plastirama was a slightly lower quality than the U.S. versions. The figures had bright skin and flesh tones and paint masks weren't as sharp. In addition, the card stock used to card the figures were flimsy.

By 1986, Plastirama went out of business. At this point, Brazilian toy company Estrela began exporting its figures and toys to neighboring Argentina.

At some point around 1998, an Argentinean toy company got their hands on Plastirama overstock (and/or molds?) and produced a set of unlicensed, unmarked G.I.Joe toys sold under various titles such as C.O.P.S. and Trincheras.
