Canada/Chile - 2008 G.I.Joe Packaging

Click images for Close-Ups

Canadian laws require that most everything printed in Canada must be in both of the official languages - English and French. In 2008 Canadian toy stores began selling the G.I.Joe 25th Anniversary figures in special Canadian-exclusive packaging. Curiously, this package is trilingual - including additional text in Spanish. The card back lists importation by a Mexican company, Mexican Manufacturing Services, for Hasbro Chile, Ltd., indicating releases of these figures in Chile as well.

Unfortunately, the cards are missing the wonderful character art - most likely to cut costs by having standardized cards.

Pictured above is Crimson Guard (v9), sold in 2008. The card back lists additional figures in the wave - Cobra Commander (v25), Destro (v16), Sgt. Flash (v2), Shipwreck (v11), Snake Eyes (v30), and Snow Job (v3). The figures themselves are exactly like the U.S. versions.
