Tiger Force Euro

Postby Celticjoe » 22 May 2010 11:44

Have has anyone else noticed the price for these figures is gone mad. A blizzard helmet went for over 100e not too long ago and last week a complete Blizzard went for $250. If the prices keep like this i might have to sell a few.

Yes indeed. I nearly spat out my Vimto when I saw that!

I got my TF Hit and Run for £2, but he has a severely damaged lower left leg. I had to stick a regular Hit and Run leg on with knackered paint. If anyone can help please give me a shout :)

:-? Can't see what all the fuss is about myself, O.K. so they're rare...but (for the Euro exclusives) colour wise Outback's the only one that really gels together & looks superior to the normal release, the rest looking too garish & toy like for my taste.
More news, as its made, from new Action Force!

I dont really like any of the Tigerforce figures but I would have to disagree and say that I think Outback is one of the worst in my opinion .... that orange Tiger T-shirt is no substitute for the original white 'Survival' version :)

I always saw Tiger Force as 'something for the younger viewers' ..... or collectors even :)

the whole idea's at once cool (tiger-striped vehicles, AWESOME!) and crap (they're supposed to be a jungle team according to the US packaging so why are they running around in garish gold and black and why do they need a bloody arctic vehicle and a skier?)

It was designed for kids after all I remember thinking how awesome they were, as an adult I find them a bit unusual, but they're still cool.

i agree, as a kid i thought TF was awesome and i still love my TF Duke. but like i said, as a jungle team, it's a bit odd what tehy did.

TF's UK packaging indicates they're some kind of special unit using modified and repainted vehicles for missions behind the lines. which doesn't make difference in the colour scheme still being odd...
