    Bulletman is, by far, my favorite G.I.Joe.

    As a fan of Golden Age Fawcett comics, I've always liked Bulletman. I don't necessarily think it was a copy of the character, but I suspect there were some unrealized elements of copying going on--the character hadn't been printed since the 1950s and wasn't yet back fully in DC Comics (not that they've ever done much with the non-Marvel Family), so it was likely more subconscious than anything. It always looked great.

    Moving towards superheroes definitely worked for me. Joe's vehicles and playsets were always cool, but I wasn't as much as a military guy. Bullet Man was about as superhero as you get!

    Very enjoyable video, I like Bulletman a lot, too. Refurbishing mine was one of my favorite projects as a collector.

    I had both the American and British versions (now combined), but I didn't realize the helmet variation. Thanks for pointing that out.

    EDIT: I think I have the British helmet.

    Love the video. Bulletman is one of my all time favorite toys. Had one as a kid at 5 in '75.
    Now have a combo US and Brit version with both helmets and boots in a repro Palitoy box.

    I recently found his boot in one of my storage boxes. Now need to find all the other parts eventually (and I mean parts. Just like the Super Joes, his...connective tissue...rotted away long ago). I remember teaming him up with Steve Austin, Jamie Sommers and Mike Powers, as well as an Earth 1 displaced 12" Mego Superman.
