1989 C.O.P.S. -Bullit

The C.O.P.S. and CROOKS figure line released right around the time I stopped collecting Joe’s , ’88-’89 give or take. I did take a liking to the cartoon and always loved the way the figures looked but never bought any for myself as a kid.Instead,i remember buying  Buttons Mc Boom Boom for my kid nephew and really diggin’ it.Lately I’ve been wanting to add a couple of these bad a#$ figures to my collection and thanks to Buzzchuck over at Action Figure Adventures ,i now have two to add to the toy shelf!I must admit,though,i didn’t recognize either of them but knew right away that they were from the C.O.P.S. and CROOKS line.This one here is “Bullit” and i can’t remember ever seeing him in any of the episodes i watched as a kid,but is a cool figure nonetheless!These guys look like overgrown G.I. Joe figures with their o-ring style waists,arm and leg joints.Hasbro clearly took the “if it ain’t broke” approach.I love the sculpt on this one and would love to hunt down some of his accessories,mainly his bullet shaped helmet and rolling land cannon.I would love to find a Big Boss or Bulletproof figure from this line as well . I can’t  thank Buzz enough for sending this guy over to me as it currently occupies a whole in my collection that i’ve been wanting to   fill for a  looong time!

BTW-Here is a link to a pretty cool C.O.P.S. figure archive if you ever have to identify a figure or just for future reference 😉
