Indian Carded Figure - Ozone



Pictured above is Ozone (v3), sold carded in India by the Funskool toy company. While similar to the U.S. release in many respects, the colors of the Ozone figure are slightly different, and he has the upper the arms of T.A.R.G.A.T. (1989) and the lower arms of Scrap-Iron. (1984).

There also exists a variation of Ozone, with the lower arms of T.A.R.G.A.T. (1989) and a lighter shade of gray on the boots.

Unlike carded figures from many other countries, Hasbro did not make the G.I.Joe figures released in India. Funskool made them and packaged them. The figures, the cardbacks, and the bubbles of figures released in India were of slightly lower quality than their American counterparts. For a visual example of this, examine the Indian Baroness.
