Once again, there’s only one clear choice when you receive new carded figures from a foreign country: Open them and take lots of pictures. We’ll dispense with the flowery language, and get right doen to the good stuff: Alado (Crazylegs) and Condor(Airborne) from Argentina.
So here’s Alado, a straight Series 6 Argentinian repaint of the U.S. release Crazy legs. If you take a close look at the pictures, you’ll notice several definitive differences in the colors. The helmet is a flat matte paint vs. the gloss of the U.S. version, and the red chest padding is almost pink in coloration. In addition, the tan on the backpack/jump harness is darker, as is the gray tone of his basic uniform.
But wait – who’s that hanging out in the background?! Oh man – Apparently it wouldn’t be fair to end the party here. We’ve decided to throw in 2 different Funskool (India) variants of Crazylegs into the picture. The one with the jump gear is the standard release, and the one without was a vehicle pack-in.
Here’s a closeup of the 2 Funskool figures. As you can see, both the gloves and the sleeves have a different paint color.
And 1 at a time:
Time to move back to Condor. Condor is a Series 5 Argentinian repaint of the U.S. Airborne figure. Like Alado, his colors are distinctly different from the U.S. release. The U.S. figure is on the left, and Condor is on the right:
Why’ll we’re at it, we might as well spruce up the party, so here as well is Condor from Brazil! He’s very close to the U.S. release, except that his lower arms were borrowed from Ripcord, and he also has a unique color to his helmet:
And left to right (U.S., Argentina, Brazil):
That’s it for now – some more special jumpers coming soon! Discuss here.
