    3 Vintage Adventure Team Joes



    Left to Right: Black Adventurer, Land Adventurer, Sea Adventurer.
    The tortoise lays on its back, its belly baking in the hot sun, beating its legs, trying to turn itself over but it can't. Not without your help.

    But you're not helping.

    Black Adventurer



    Shirt, trousers, and boots are vintage. Dog Tag, shoulder holster and revolver are reproductions.

    The Sea Adventurer and the Black Adventurer were bought from a friend, with the Sea Adventurer uniform. I already owned the Black Adventurer Uniform, and had bought it with the Land Adventurer many years before.

    I also own a vintage Adventure Team Commander, but he's stationed at my parents' house.

    I own a complete Adventure Team, but only these three and the Commander are vintage. None of the ones pictured have been reflocked, but the Commander has.

    Cleaning?

    Are you talking about the figures or the uniforms? I know the SA has some stains on his shirt, but don't know about/can't see anything else. (I'm colorblind you'll have to break it down for me)

    The Adventurer, looks a bit grubby. Actually looks like he was in a fire, looks like soot on his face. Could be a trick of the light i guess.

    I think its the light, or the picture brightness. They all look great to me. Nice collection Raven! I'm normally 3-3/4, but have recently started collecting some 12" stuff. Really getting into the history, and the stories. Carry on, sir.
    (All respects to Mr Carlin) Things you'll never hear a Joe say:
    Hand me that VAMP.
    Do what you want to the civilian, but leave me alone!
