There's a small comicon held near my house; and this weekend featured Adam West and Burt Ward; the stars of the 1966 Batman show. There's usually not much Joe at these things; so I intended to window shop. There was the usually assortment of comic book action figures; as well as the Star Wars line. Modern Joe was there, RAH, Hall of Fame, Timeless and Classic collection. A RHINO still in its box was tempting! I did manage to find one rather beat-up Joe:




He was dirty and needs a reflock; but aside from a cracked knee, the body is rather tight:



He cleaned up well:



I've got him in a KO jacket and trousers at the moment. He'll probably eventually find his way into my aviation detachment:



His black trousers went to my desert survival Joe:



A pair of well-worn Air Adventurers!

The two-tone flock is nice, I haven't seen many like that one. You should have hooked that Rhino jeep, it's ideal for all 12" figure ranges Wink

I was tempted; but the missus would have noticed a large box under my arm! LOL

Here's how he looks now. I gave him the rest of the KO outfit; which looks partially inspired by one of Steve Austin's ensembles.

Glad to see another weary Joe find a Good Home! I also Love the Six Million Dollar Man line and have a few of those. But I LOVE The Lesier Suit that's on Mike Power! A Larger version would look Great on Steve Austin! bounce
