G.I. Joe ROC-Sky Sweeper w/Air Raid

This I picked up a loooong time ago on clearance at a nearby Wal-Mart.I’ve read this guys(Air Raid) file card a gazillion times and only now am I realizing that this is none other than “Airborne” with a different code name.If you keep up with your Joe intel,like I so very often don’t,then you should know that Franklin Talltree was Airborne’s ย real name,hence the connection with Air Raid who sports the same name on his file card.It’s not all the time that I’m able to put 2 and 2 together but I blow myself away the times that I do ;)So…yeah…moving forward.I love the figure from this set and while I’m not crazy about the Sky Sweeper ,It’s still pretty cool.I wish it was a two-seater.Enjoy the pics.

  1. Thats cool. I always remember Airborne being introduced in GI Joe #11 stating his name “Talltree, Franklin E.” For some reason that always stuck with me ….

    • I’ve had this for about a year and a half now,maybe longer,and am just making the(Airborne,Air Raid) connection lol.The name Franklin E. Talltree is kick a@#!

    • I didn’t think I’d get into them at first brigade but after picking up a few I was hooked.It was like an alternate Joe universe with different versions of past time greats.Throw in the fact that they came
      stacked with accessories.

    • Thanks for the Reblog Brigade!I’ll definitely be dropping by your site soon as well as adding you to my Blogroll if It’s cool with you.Thanks for jumping on board!
      BTW-I see you’re into Joes,ya gotta check out jboypacman over at “Revenge From The Cosmic Ark”.He’s got a ton of Joe content as well ๐Ÿ˜‰
