GI Joe Plastirama-Sgto. Slaughter(international)

Certain figures from the 80’s G.I. Joe line seem to be impossible to find online for a reasonable price.Snake Eyes,Storm Shadow,Zartan and Sgt. Slaughter come to mind.I’ve been wanting to add a Slaughter figure to my collection for ever it seems but never even bothered to pursue any of them online because of the ridiculous prices.Then I stumbled across this international rendition of everybody’s favorite Joe drill sergeant carded(somewhat)for about 8 bucks shipped!After using the zoom option I realized why they priced it so low as the card and bubble was all kinds of warped and the popular baton accessory was missing.I said what the heck and proceeded to check out.Days later the figure arrived and while I knew the bubble was unattached and the card was extremely bent,nothing could have prepared me for the horror that would ensue.This was Sgt.Slaughter on crack!I know,i know it’s an international Joe with lower quality plastic and less paint apps,but MAN!It seems like this figure skipped right past the deburring   station and right into its packaging.It pained me to see such a legendary toy line get such horrible treatment.I guess I got what I paid for plus he’s not a total loss.The figure is relatively what it is,and  will look cool back in it’s bubble and up on the wall.

  1. He’s pretty cool. Too bad about the card. At least you kind of had a head up when you bought him. I have an international Ripcord in a similar state. I display him in his package (without his accessories because they are missing) inside a Zoloworld case. They do a nice job of flattening out a wavy card.

    • Yeah I definitely know what I’m in for now if I ever decide to go the international route again.There’s about six of these on eBay right now
      Buzz if you wanted o add on to your collection.Thy’re about 10 to 13 bucks shipped on avg.
