I thought my Mudbuster was possibly from japan because of the writing Baron but as I was corrected it has chinese writing on the box. I don't know where EmpireIsland got it from originally. I made the joke comment "That's why I don't recognise it as japanese of course" to cover the fact I obviously don't recognise chinese writing from japanese.

Around 11 years ago a local Poundstretchers store carried most of the Chinese Joes, I now wish I'd got some of them as they were only about a couple of quid each :cry:

I did pick up the Chinese versions of :cobracommander: + :destro: a few years back from a local market...but missed out on the :bludd:

i remember these in poundies as well but was nearer 18 years ago.
never picked any up but told a mate who was into joes and when he checked a couple of days later they were all gone.
he made such a big deal out of it, calling me a liar and generally getting on like a twat i thought i was gonna have to twat him.

Here's another example... Mutt was not released as part of the Hasbro Action Force range.
