    I'm curious about the yellow Safari jeep and trailer, I don't think that's Mattel, but a knock off company, maybe Irwin or Empire? Anyone have any info on that?

    Two of the best toy lines ever and I think at least a few here know of my unabashed admiration for Fighting Furies.. I have a complete collection of the pirates and accessories, and I even got some of the European "Western" releases to display clothing sets.

    Yeah, the Mattel Safari Jeep (which is awesome) is a bright olive green.

    Fighting Furies don't stand a chance. You got an almost naked blonde guy fishing for an alligator. Don't get much tougher than that.

    Speaking of all this Barbie/Big Jim stuff...This is one of my latest...It's brand new with decal sheet, etc...Only problem is one of the latches on the trailer had snapped. Im not a barbie collector, but I thought the set was awesome and got it for a great price (like $38 or something)...I was thinking the yellow and red dune buggy with the slot mag wheels reminds me of Speedbuggy, the old 70's cartoon...

    I love Big Jim! As a child, I only had Big Jack (black guy), who I used to team up w/ Mego AJ. But now I have Jim, Jack, Jeff, Josh, Dr. Steel (renamed Ironhand but I had to replace the hand 'cos it split), The Whip (renamed Big John), and Warpath (renamed Blackhawk). I have the camper set (missing the boat), the tent set, and a large assortment of accessories.

    *And I had Barbie's Country Camper as a kid. I also now have Mattel's Starr and friends w/ the clothes and carrying case.
