Rare unused boxed items..

Postby Newswseller » 06 Sep 2016 15:12

Hi All

Just wondering for standard version vehicles (i.e. not german) which ones MISB or with unused contents are the hardest to track down?

For example I don't think i have seen an unused green wolverine before?

Thanks

Attack Canon (picture box)
Hyena V2
Boat Patrol (picture box)
ATC (AF version)

Thanks, did you mean something else when you said : Swordfish (picture box)?

Funny how they are all the picture box versions? you would think with them being later releases they would be the ones with plenty of overstock..

I've seen about 4 laser exterminators with the picture boxes unused on ebay over the past year, so didnt realise they were that rare! one sold for as little as £80

Does anyone have a green wolverine then? that won is my personal grail, as was my favorite toy when i was a nipper.

The swordfish only came in a picture box.
When confronted by a difficult problem you can solve it more easily by reducing it to the question. How would the Lone Ranger handle this?

There's been absolutely no sign of a 1985 :af: Commmand Centre. I suspect they were all :zforce: overstock. There was one photo in a catalogue with :afstalker: and :gungho: in place of :jammer: and :gaucho: , but I've yet to see a variant instructions sheet or box.

Yes, we've only ever seen a carded, red Q logo Swordfish box. As the rest of the 1983 range switched from windowed to carded boxes in 1984, logic says that there should have been a window box yellow Q logo 1983 release, but none have been found.

I've also never seen a carded 1984 Cosmic Cruiser box.

The only box that doesn't fit the theme is the Z Force Battle Tank, carded with a window for the figure only. I'm fairly certain that it was the same for both 1983 and 1984.

I think the card box :sas: Boat Patrol is the rarest. I know of three, we're very lucky to have decent pics for the archives and guidebook.

There is a laser exterminator with a photo on the box of a red shadow sitting in the seat on eBay in the USA.

That auction has got the wrong figure though, it's still meant to come With red laser even though it has a picture of red shadow on the box
