Incidentally - interesting observations - all the series 1 we can pretty much take as early issue - the ones being taken around by the salesman. And they are all what we would call variants. Piss stained crotch version of mission pilot, helmet logo on German trooper, painted pockets on commando. Gutted I didn't get a lot with the piss stained crotch mission pilot! :-( just crossin my fingers that mine that comes has helmet logo German - it looks to in the picture, but can't be 100%.

I got the TSATT Wellen Jet. Paid £120 for it, probably over the odds but hey ho!

I don't think that's over the odds Paul, I think you did well.

When I saw it it was pretty much like seeing a blonde with big babs, I must have that! ;)

Indeed.
It makes sense and confirms what we had already suspected... that Palitoy simplified and streamlined production later on, so that anything a bit 'la-di-da, ooo fancy' would be early.
Shame really.

Was your lot a helmet logo German?
