Well you never know what might turn up, until a few days ago some of you didn't know about this guy, so anything is possible?

OK, it's a stretch at best, especially after 25 years, but just thinking you never know :)

Nice Stuff. Fiona was one of the contributors to the Star Wars Palitoy Archive Exhibit, for anyone who likes their history, there is an expanded history covered here:

This a repaint of the GI Joe Flash.

No one's sure about. Some think it might be intended for Q Force, because of the yellow, but I'm not convinced.

If anything, I think its later than that. Series 3 [jointed figure range] probably...

:doc: :doc: :doc:


where did this surface then? Is it known to have originated from the UK?

It's a cool repaint.

I would say it's not Action Force. Had he been Space Force he would have had the standard blue helmet, and every Q Force character was predominantly yellow.

He may have been a prototype Moondancer for the second release Triad, this would make sense with the acutal fig being the same mould as the second release Dolphin.

I'd have to agree after seeing the link, if this had surfaced in the UK, then I would have been convinced, but given that JOE repaints were not only confined to the UK, who knows what this might have been?

Hey, If I remember Ron Connors said the person who sold it to him had acquired it from a Palitoy Executive. I believe it is an Action Force figure, I just dont know who he was made to replace. I mean gray Shortfuze adn Zap replaced Dolphin and Moondancer... who would "Flash" have replaced?
