They did say that they would be kept faithful to the originals including accessories so come he has no assault rifle and codebook? He looks good though but needs black hair as well. I wonder if they will preview a Red Torch or keep them secret.

Red Shadows International Set

There has never been an American release of the international
figures in this set. We have some very special surprises for you!
Every collector will want these vintage style figures from the
set: Black Major, Interrogator, Flint, and the troopers: six Red
Torches and six Red Shadows Troopers.

Each of these exotic figures comes with their classic weapons and
accessories in this exciting 2010 fifteen figure boxed set “Vacation
in the Shadows”!


Make sure you are there for package pick-up on Thursday night
so that you won’t miss this year’s souvenirs! These souvenirs
will feature several highly sought after vintage style G.I. Joes
along with one figure that will make its debut in 3 3/4” scale.
These limited edition figures will have a major role in the convention
exclusive comic book. Flint has been captured by the Red
Shadows and their evil leader, the Black Major. Can Flint’s
international team save him, and what of the Interrogator? What
is his role in this insidious plot?

I have seen that but that doesn't say ( at least to me ) that they would/will be faithful to the originals

Using the term classic would seem they meant reproducing the weapons and accessories Palitoy made years ago.

He does look excellent. I seem to remember a picture of the baron whiping his red shadows to fight harder, oh yes

He should have black hair, but other than that it looks pretty good. He should also have and AK-47 and code book.

Personally - I love it!

The AK situation doesn't bother me - I always that the AK was a bit of a crass weapong for a Major anyway - he strikes me as more of a PPK type of guy, and I seem to recall he was often pictured with a pistol in BAF rather than an AK.

I like it except for the head sculpt - he doesnt look mean enough but its still pretty darn good - im so happy they are doing this I dont want to nit pick. I would like to get a boxed and loose set so I can customuise one and add my own head (probably the original)...

Interesting as its what a lot of people have already used in customs...
