Forgive me if this is somewhere else on the forum...

I recently bought a carded figure of Taurus (yes, crappy Taurus). Every example I've seen lists him as in a three-pack in Slaughter's Renegades, however the example I have is a single figure. I can't for the life of me find what range he comes from or anything, he's a 1989 release according to the card back. I might have just missed the information in my hunt, but was he released as a stand-alone in Europe maybe? As I'm in the UK. Saying that, he's labelled as G.I. Joe, not Action Force as you'd expect. Any help would be appreciated!

He might have been. After searching online, I have noticed that the later joe figures were released under the G.I. Joe brand.

A picture of the carded toy, and a thread title that reflects the issue would both help you get the information you need.

This wasn't a Funskool variant though, as they had Funskool pretty prominently displayed on them. Also, the carding is the same as the standard late 80's/early 90's figs. It's a Hasbro release. The cardback also shows Red Dog as a standalone, so he was obviously released as such in the UK as well.
