The Bronze Bombers was a short-lived toy line produced by Olmec. Two "waves" were produced. The first one, released in 1988, consisted of a dozen different figures and 2 small vehicles. The figures had similar molds to Galoob's A-Team figures from the early '80s and were of lesser quality. In 1997, Olmec acquired several GI Joe molds from Hasbro and produced a 12 figure boxset consisting of recolored vehicle drivers like Motor-Viper, Skidmark, Darklon and Strato-Viper. A year later, Olmec filled for bankrupcy and Bronze Bombers line disappeared.

The 1988 line included figures that were a bit more generic (that had less flair) than the 1997 ones, but are interesting in an Original 13 sort of way. Mapman Jackson was the last of three Bronze Bombers that I built for Retro Toy Chest II. Like Shaka Johnson, he has an Original 13 feel, but is different from the others because of his boots, his canopy helmet and the snazzy orange camoflage on his uniform.
