In the late 80s, the Indian toy company Funskool began making G.I.Joe figures in India - from the same molds as Hasbro. However, instead of having the toys built in Hong Kong or China, Funskool used their own facilities in India.
The Indian versions of G.I.Joes are not bootlegs - these were officially licensed by Funskool. At first glance, they can easily be mistaken for the American release. However, they are of a lower quality and should not be mistaken with the American versions.
The American version of the Baroness is pictured on the left, the Indian version of the Baroness is pictured on the right.
How do you tell the difference between the lower quality Indian version and the higher quality American version? Look for the noticable details that are apparent in all the Indian made G.I.Joe figures : the lower quality plastic, the strange color of her face, the cheaper and less-sharp paint masks (note the faces and the placement of the Cobra logo), and most importantly, look for the "Made in India by Funskool" imprinted on either the seat of the pants or on the legs.
