Left to Right: Black Adventurer, Land Adventurer, Sea Adventurer.


Black Adventurer



Shirt, trousers, and boots are vintage. Dog Tag, shoulder holster and revolver are reproductions.



Sea Adventurer



Shirt, trousers, dog tag and boots are vintage. Badge, shoulder holster and revolver are reproductions.



Land Adventurer



Shirt, trousers, dog tag and boots are vintage. Badge, shoulder holster and gun are reproductions.




The Sea Adventurer and the Black Adventurer were bought from a friend, with the Sea Adventurer uniform. I already owned the Black Adventurer Uniform, and had bought it with the Land Adventurer many years before.

I also own a vintage Adventure Team Commander, but he's stationed at my parents' house.

I own a complete Adventure Team, but only these three and the Commander are vintage. None of the ones pictured have been reflocked, but the Commander has.

The Land Adventurer has very deep blue eyes, nice! The blue in the eyes of Joes and vam can vary in vibrance. Nice bunch with good flock covering.

You could always give the faces a very gentle clean with an unabrasive, watered down toothpaste, using a very soft infants toothbrush, then rinse off thoroughly. and towel dry by patting Wink

Great pics of your Adventure Team Action Yankee! cheers

Do you have any idea how to tell if a AT pistol is
vintage or reproduction???
When I bought my vintage AT figures a few ago I never checked
to see... scratch The shoulder holtsters are vintage for sure on mine.
Not sure about pistols.. scratch

I don't have a vintage Lebel to compare, but it seems there's several versions running around, not counting reproductions, and reproductions have several too.

Does anyone have a detail shot of a confirmed vintage Lebel Revolver?

Nice vintage AT guys, I've a couple myself.

My only problem with my Sea Adventurer, is that his beard is uneven. And I don't want to get him reflocked, because the glue line will be visible on the one side if I have it shortened, and the beard will ride too close to the scar for my tastes on the other side if I have it raised.

Very nice AT Joes... I have the Black Adventurer, Air Adventurer, Land Adventurer and Man of Action in my collection... they're a mixture of original and reflocked hair and original and reissue uniforms and equipment... they're a great treasure to me and boxed away in a treasure chest under my bed... Very Happy

The full Monty Ian, nice collection of backyard joy. I only have one adventure team outfit and figure, I've neglected that side of the hobby.
