I’ll talk some other time about these figures, and I’ll provide many pictures. This time I want to talk about this box, which belongs to the second (and last) Airgamcomics wave (1986). This wave’s figures had extra articulations in knees and elbows (the classic G.I.Joe: ARAH’s swivel arm). Sirdar is one of the eight figures of this wave, and reminds very much of a gladiator. It was sold separately in a single blister (Ref. 1101) or along with his vehicle (Ref. 1156), which is some kind of futuristic AT-tricycle.
The vehicle includes a missile launcher (with five missiles) and you can steer it moving from side to side the tab behind the seat. Unfortunately I can’t take better photos now, but the stickers at the control panel are very colourful, and in the front wheel, there is a tiger head at each side.
The figure comes with a silver sword, a shield and a black laser pistol. I’ll show it fully armoured when I talk about the figures. Sorry for the bad quality of the picture!
As you can see in the third pic, the box is much filled with air, but it has a nice design and a nice illustration in the flap. Notice that the box is in Spanish, French and English, and it has the word projectiles written with “y”: “proyectiles”.
From all action figure collections I did, this was my first. I remember when my father bought me the first figure and vehicle of this collection, and how I got to have all figures. I still have them, and for this reason, this collection has a very special place among all my figures and cars.
