This year will likely go down as the biggest collecting year ever for me! Not only have I been lucky enough to make multiple deals with Aire, win two lots from Shane Watson’s Vectis auctions (more later on that), but I just completed a deal for one of the most rare and desirable figures in the hobby – Canary Ann!!!! This deal fell into my lap and I pulled out all the stops to make it happen. I have to thank the seller for making this one of the easiest and best transactions I’ve ever had. It definitely made me nervous went I sent the payment – but the seller was AWESOME.
I am sure that more Canary Anns will be found (I know there is at least a 3rd, maybe a 4th), this is definitely the first, but hopefully not the last to be shared publicly. Now that it is hands on I can get some great pictures of it to share with everyone. It is complete and in absolutely great shape, tight joints and just some minor paint wear on the gloves and one boot. The first order of business when I get home will be to switch out the screws (they aren’t rusted, but I’d like new ones in anyway) and then to place her right next to my other Commando Force figures!
Before I get to the pictures, here is the background info on the Funskool Commando Force figures:
They were the free figures, that were given away on the purchase of ‘Complan Chocolate Health Drink’.
Emerald Gung Ho/Zap – “Striker”.
Red/Purple Scrap Iron/Zap – “Cross Country”
Blue/Yellow Firefly/Short Fuse – ??
Red Baroness – “Rednok”
Yellow Lady Jaye – “Canary Ann”
Enjoy the pictures!

Glad to see this here. One missing in your list of Complan Joes is “Rocker”. Also, Cross Country is rather different from Zap – the latter has a rocket launcher, the former ako SMG. Enjoy 🙂

she reminds me of April O’Neil a bit, seems like an easy one for the club to pull off, maybe as a bonus 13th figure.

Cool stuff, man! It’s always neat seeing obscure o-ring Joes.
