    Changes to GI JOE RAH in Canada?

    Aside from the American flag and United States decals being removed and the cards no longer said "Real American Hero" was anything else changed?

    I know RAH got radically changed in the UK. Like name change to Action Force and the removal of all American flag decals. Exclusive repaints of figures like Scarlett to Quarrel and when Scarlett was released her place of birth was changed from Atlanta Georgia USA to Belgium. Plus the animated series even got heavily redubbed complete with new theme song. They did get some super cool exclusive vehicles like the Roboskull.

Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...

    Snake Eyes had a beaver instead of a wolf, and instead of Refrigerator Perry, our mail away figure was Wayne Gretzky code name: Hat Trick.

    Some of the French names were interesting, Snake Eyes was "Zorro" and I swear "Dial Tone" was "Dic Click"

    I did not know that. I've seen very few Canadian bi lingual cards or packages. But I have seen the Snake Eyes 82 card and he was still called Snake Eyes in both French and English on his file card. Looks like he was indeed called Zorro on at least the Ninja Force card. Cool.

    Skip ahead to 52:55 to see some of the crazy changes done to RAH to change it into the Action Force cartoon in the UK. Full Force!! Ah, yeah, it's probably worse than Hero Turtles.
