I originally found this figure a few months ago at a 2nd-hand " nostalgia" store here in Greensburg. He was in a bin full of various other Joes ranging from the mid 80's to VvV. I didn't want to say anything to the owner, since he has some figures in his case that are really expensive and this guy was out of the $3 bin.

 

He uses the Electric Eel mold, but he's molded red with grey and yellow trim (this isn't a custom, the red is the color of the plastic). The figure has all the regular markings.

 

so where and when was he released??? The first EEel was clear green, of course, and then a grey on with red trim came out with that little mini sub/plane thing. The wave 6 EEel was grey with blue trim. So was this guy some kind of club exclusive or mail in I somehow missed hearing about????

This Eel is an aborted repaint due in 2005. He was to come with a blue and yellow Sting Raider and his wave fellow would have been a black and grey Tunnel Rat which would have come with a new Road Rebel (with a dual missile rack rather than the BFG).

 

Images of both popped up on Hasbro's site prior to the DTC/Sigma Six revamp last year

I guess if everyone says it's the aborted eel, it must be so. I had thought that figure was going to be blue like the vehicle.

 

In any case, I wonder how the heck this figure ended up in the cheap joe bin? Were any of these released accidently? Or maybe the guy got it somehow from a collector and dropped it in the bin by error?

 

And the other figure (Big Ben), what does he look like?
