110: “Sgt. Slaughter (v1)”. G.I. Joe “Real American Hero” Series 5, 1986.

Welp! This caps off 1986!! Onward to 1987!

You may remember I posted a version (v2) of Sgt. Slaughter previously, BEFORE this version which is technically version 1. Lemme explain. TECHNICALLY this woulda been the “first” version of him released, but available only via mailing in for him. The way I have been doing my ordering is the same way YoJoe.com and 3Djoes.com do theirs: all the CARDED figures first for that year, then all the figures that came WITH a vehicle, and finally at the end, all the figures that were available only via MAIL-IN for that year.

On a personal note, I have a very strong memory of being a 9 yr old kid getting this Sgt Slaughter in the mail, and opening the bubble mailer. What a rush when you get something like an action figure in the mail as a kid!
