All: 25th Ripper

In the 1990's Funskool, an Indian company, licensed GI Joe from Hasbro. Using official molds, Funskool released their own ''GI Joe International Heroes'' over the course of a decade and a half.

I tackled this project for several reasons. First, I found myself wanting to add some of these characters and wacky colored figures to my collection. It started with just a few figures but, after doing some online research, I realized that there were several more interesting figures in the line. As the project grew, I was rummaging through my fodder bins and I decided to use up as much of my older 25th parts as I could. So, this project became a big ''Spare Parts Brigade''.

Like red Buzzer, purple Ripper is pretty hard to find for Funskool collectors. Since I had a spare 25th ''Fred Flintstone'' Ripper, I thought I would give Buzzer a Funskool partner.
