    Falcon from Cotswold!!! I'm Happy!!!! :D

    So I was looking at their catalogue and seen the Falcon version of the Turbo copter back pack with Muscle figure was on special price. So I figured I'd go to the website and take a look. Usually when I do this, The item is sold out. To my amazement they were still there. So I Clicked. It arrived today and I hurriedly opened it. A GI Joe muscle body and the Turbo Copter have been on my wish list for a long time. I know these are far from the classic vintage Joe's of my time, but it feels like 1970's Christmas in my place right now.
    If you feel the same. You may want to head over to Cotswold and check it out!!!

      This brings back fond memories of listening to the Peter Pan Book & Record "GI Joe: Secret Mission to Spy Island". The part around 2:22 in particular...



      They didn't count on your one-man auto-copter!

        I had been following an Original Hasbro Turbo copter back pack on eBay for some time. As you'd expect it was pretty pricey. So when I had seen this for less I jumped. I am not sure what the deal is with the Falcon items. Are they old stock or reproductions or what??? If some here knows the story please let me know.

        Getting two items that I've been hoping and hunting for (Turbo copter and a Muscle body Joe) was just too much to pass on, especially for the special price.

          The Falcon Sets ROCK! Unfortunately they do not seem to want to distribute them in the US. Their latest announced set is a re-do of Spy Island, but it will not be available stateside from any retailers.

            Falcons are limited editions from Brazil by Estrela. You might want to check but something like 1,800 -2,000 pieces. Cotswald was carrying them but won't be able to get new ones. Buy while you can. Licensed from Hasbro. In 1994 and later 2000 they did some reissues. 2000 but were not licensed Gijoe but generic Pilot,Soldier ect.(same molds though)all scarce.
