Pirates Expeditions Fritz and Crockie

Between Pirate Expeditions and True Heroes Pirate Crew figures, an interesting Chap Mei release, PirateS Expeditions. The "official" re-release of the original Pirate Expeditions sets with new colors and a little more...

   
Where's waldo? The curious detail is the Komodo Dragon with the same paint scheme seen in Jungle Adventure.


MOC, the Fritz The Cyclop and Zebra Crockie repaints.


Included accessories.


Figure: "Fritz The Cyclop".


Interesting pair. A guy with a wooden leg and crocodile...


With the exact same scheme as TRU Pirate Crew figure, this one was released by Chap Mei.


Removable belt with scabbard ring, always a classic!


Zebra Crockie, a return to its original color!


One of Chap Mei´s best. Fully sculpted, no blank areas, just missing an articulation between those 24 teeth... maybe.


5000 pounds per square inch... and Fritz right in the middle!

    That crocodille would be very welcome for my Croc Master. I can't find anywhere a good scaled croc for him that really looks manacing.

  3. Now these sets are more like it. Single carded figures with a small animal to boot.

    Do tell me you also picked up the repaint of the wolf. I'm quite anxious to see that one up close. The bright green deco on the wolf strikes me as particularly brillant - and will adapt easily in my fantasy universe.

  4. No Wolf, it wasn´t available that day. Or the day after for that matter :( However, I will return there by Xmas time hoping they have a lot more stuff (new and older). If they have the Wolf then, I´ll bring it back with me.

  5. @ Luís, yes the Croc looks awesome in size. I´ll get some pictures for the next "Chap Mei and G.I.Joe" post!

  6. I got these guys at a local Dollar Tree here in Texas a few years back for a buck each... just the figures, not much in the way of accessories. Great sculpts.

  7. Indeed. Chap Mei has spectacular sculpting artists, the only downside has always been the lack of modern articulation.
