I took Kraglin into Manchester to check out the Christmas markets. He did his best to get into the spirit of things.
He appreciated the comfy seat on the metrolink (tram system)
I dragged him home after 2 sausages in a bun, a coconut macaroon as big as his head, 7 mugs of gluhwein (to stave off the chill, he claims) and the obligatory photo posed outside of the main market with santa zippy in the background.
I think he had fun but he’s busy sleeping it off now so it’s hard to tell.
G.I. Joe Cobra Night Landing Craft. Easy restore overall that took quite a while to get pics posted. Pretty much just a clean up, decal removal, polish and repo decal replacement. The decal sheet came with quite a few extras but I pretty much stuck to the original look of the landing craft.
It’s displayed here with my Cobra Eels (1985) figure. He is my original and at sometime, while I was a kid, I thought he’d look cooler with some “camo” painted on him. That is what you see on his legs and arms.
It really could have used a good dusting/cleanup before the shoot. It is covered in lint and fuzz which really stood out after the pics were taken.
The landing craft was one of those genius Hasbro Joe toys. It was cheap but still cool. For the kids who didn’t have the parents who could afford the USS Flagg or other high priced items the landing craft was one of those toys your friends still wanted and it didn’t feel out of place when next to the hover craft or other larger items.
