GI joe keychain figures

Not sure if this is in the right place but here goes.
Recently picked up the set of GI Joe keychain figures. They have detachable chains so you can display them with your regular action force/Gi joe figures.

I have the soldier & pilot, once detached from the key chains they are just the same as the anniversary figures..but I cant remember if they have the ltd edition numbers printed on the feet or not? Were they expensive?

Got them for £15. The box says they are limited edition but there are no markings on the feet. Only checked the black diver tho.

I'm not sure if the yellowing was caused by daylight or the pose, the helmet ( of the guy on the left) discoloured where it was in contact with the figure's torso. :-(

That sounds like a perfect bargain price, Shadow Contact, the Marine & Soldiers are excellent army builders..I've got 2 Marines & 3 Soldiers now

Even with what I bought, there were still like 10 rows of them. Only downside is they have begun to get brittle feeling.

Hey Thundershot, in the pic above is there a painted face and Molded flesh tone variant? The only variants I knew of were the upper back latch and the glued in Backpack Peg versions.

I've got a 4-pack of these key chains. They are pretty cool!

The key chain figures are not 100% identical to the anniversary set. The pilot in the anniversary set is blue. The anniversary set is from Hasbro, the key chains were made by another company. Well, at least my 4-pack is.

Jaye, I've never seen that set before...is that Action Soldier an M.P. , as in Military Police.. not a "expenses scandal" type member of parliament?
& the Marines in desert camo 8-)

I think it's just the lighting that make them loo different :shadow: contact, also, looking @ that shot I now realise that I'd put the parachute harness on incorrectly :roll:
