Soldier Force Snake Squad

Wednesday, October 14, 2009

A little nostalgia. Series I Soldier Force "Snake Squad Speed Troopers" 6 pack.

These were the starters of it all. Many (if not all) G.I.Joe collectors remember this vividly.

However, this is the "Snake Squad". A variation of the common olive green camouflage figures.

Center, a G.I.Joe Extreme-inspired figure. These 6 packs (especially this one) had an interesting painting. Even then, it was clear they wanted to do something good. They were trying, as they still are, I believe, to figure out the "fly". Trying different plastics, paint jobs, molds, scales. They´re pretty close.

These 6 figures were the bread and butter of Chap Mei Soldier Force lines for years. It is curious they never tried to develop a background story for these and for the lines. Catalogs. The works. Who knows what the future will bring...

Yep, the first Chap Mei logo.

Good(?) old Chap Mei days...

    How much I regreat have let the one with the red mask go from my collection... It's a perfect guy for a custom.

    And the guns oversized let me sad. Great remakes of the Alien movies, but oversized... Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!

    I really like this set. It's a pity the incomplete paint job of the back of the figures. Regarding on the oversized weapons, they're perfect for my Madelman figures :)

    Indeed, for the Madelman series, these weapons are perfect. I tried to get some military Madelman a while ago, but I could only find divers, fire fighters and such.
