    Yeah, my wife was quick to point that out to me last night. Pretty bad considering Hasbro was actually in Quebec.

    Is that the talking Astronaut? I get confused on the details of the 1970 line because of the flocked hair, but lack of beard and Kung-Fu grip that came later on with the Adventure Team.

    No,he doesn't talk. I'm guessing it's a blonde Man of Action.

    My understanding--from 3D Joes I think--is that the blond MoA were due to Hasbro using overstock Astro heads.

    Yep. Just read it there, in fact.

    I think that is one of the most interesting Joe pieces I have seen in a while simply because I have never seen a blonde Man of Action that wasn't a Talking Astronaut. I have learned something new!!
