Another wonderful item from this (not so) obscure line, SOS COMMANDOS from Gulliver.
For more on this line, history and background, check out the previous SOS COMMANDOS posts.
Packed with the infamous Gladios, this terrorcopter... make that TERROR CÓPTER (portuguese for terror helo... or copter if you will).
MOC, 198? no date stamp but if not around the late 80s, surely the early 90s.
The "Cópter" backpack is one of my favourite small vehicles/accessories ever. There were two, one for each faction. Wonderful set of pieces of plastic!
The mechanism was a little fragile and at times, very complex for its purpose. And then again, it was the height of Hasbro´s G.I.Joe power. Things had to be quality-driven.
The colors, the detail, the design, all very 80s... and I´m loving every single inch!
Included accessories for the figure. And as always, a 4-sticker sheet.
Included (random) figure: Gladios. As seen in SOS COMMANDOS - Bad Fire.
Way before Destro´s Annihilators and around the motorized action packs time, this great piece of machinery flies the skies!
