He is one of my must haves I have the later 1990's version of him which had an Adventure Team logo on his jacket.

Nice, something else to add to the wish list.
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?

Makes sense for Big Ben to become part of :af: , since he's British.

Love original Big Ben. Great idea, nice muted colour scheme, fantastic face paint and awesome accessories.

He's another one of those Joes (along with Bullhorn) which were not released during my era of actually playing with toys. I discovered him only once I got a GI Joe collector's guide years later and totally loved the design.

The Hit & run figure would make a great Z Force addition too.

I'm going to try and get him. So far, I'll try for him. Also want Alpine, Bombstrike, thinking about Muskrat and Repeater.

It's ironic that the original was never released in the UK pound shops aside later on!

Probably due to a silly codename. Its like calling a US figure the statue of liberty. I'd love to see this chap done in black, grey and yellow.
