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...
