hello, everyone, i have a question for you all.

I noticed, at least on ebay and on my own eagle eyes/dynamic body VAM, there are differences between the eagle eyes head released on classic bodies and those late released on dynamic bodies.

The first ones had the eyebrown painted and the later ones no. Sometimes lips are painted too, but in the first ones the collor is natural and in the later ones they have orange-ish tones.

The EE/DB version doenst have eyebrows painted (it seems).

Also, the talking commander (muscle body torso/dynamic body limbs) also seems display painted eyebrows.

Someone can confirm this?

I have a near mint EE/DB VAM but i would like to change his head (the only part with damage painting on the eyebrows) but I would like to keep it as much close to the original as possible.

Hi Falcon, it sounds like your discribing original ee's and 40th ee's? Although the 40th are a fair reproductions of the originals, they do lack the charm of the originals. You will also find usually that they have the 1000 yard stare Shocked .

No, BAM, i mean look at this:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Action-Man-original-blonde-Eagle-Eye-Muscle-Body-blue-pant-Figure-GI-Jo/113902978280?hash=item1a852584e8:g:GOkAAOSwR91dhdTF

and this:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/vintage-ACTION-MAN-figure-original-FLOCKED-HAIR-EAGLE-EYES-GRIPPING-HANDS-1964/401871409231?hash=item5d9167104f:g:dG4AAOSwWXddb7nZ

Just two examples.
I mean vintage stuff, i am familiar with those 40th reissues. Smile

Ah yes, the hybrids always were the better of the ee heads, the eye's were narrower and looked more natural, I suspect when they changed to the dynamic body the altered the appearance slightly??
