Unknown - Mystery G.I.Joe Figure



Pictured above is a mystery G.I.Joe action figure that was purchased from the private collection of a Hasbro employee. The only known facts about the figure are-

  • It's from the same mold as the swivel-arm Flash.
  • The figure is marked © 82-83 Hasbro Made in Hong Kong on the bottom of the figure. There are no other markings.
  • The body is made of gray plastic and is factory painted (not hand painted).
  • The backpack is all white.
  • The figure was purchased from Whiz Bang Toys of Florida.
  • Whiz Bang purchased it directly from Kirk Bozigian - Product Manager at Hasbro Toys in the early 1980s.

Other than that, the figure is a mystery. These are some speculations as to the intended result of the figure:

  • Probably not a prototype because of the markings are present, plastic is not "multi-color", and paint appears like factory.
  • The color scheme appears to match the European Action Force, Space and Aqua teams. 
  • Probably not a Brazilian figure because it does not have the word Estrela stamped on the back.

There is a reward for anyone who has proof of where this action figure might have been intended for - such as a catalog, a flyer, a promotional insert - anything that can categorically prove where this figure was intended to be released.

If anyone has any information about this toy, please email Ron. Thanks!
