I'll get you guys started on this one as well.
I can start adding variation pix and other stuff later. Anyone want to get the ball rolling on this?

Sorry Guy, I don't have anything to add on this guy but man, is that ever cool! Loved my Super-Joe figure and I would love to do a resin copy of the old head and have it flocked like the 12" figures.

Does he look like he's in Daft Punk or is it just me?

Nice one. Probably costs a heck of a lot less too.

Estrela toys in Brazil Issued a version of Action man in the 1980's that
was very sci-fi oriented and nothing like any of Gi Joe's previous incarnations.
The Figures often looked a lot like something out of an 80's Italian Sci-fi film. Like Star Crash meets Death Race 2000.
Really freaky creations.





Today, the toys are highly sought after in Brazil, making them very difficult to acquire to the non Native Brazilians.


As the years went on, the Torak character has been issued in many incarnations.
A mixture of current 80's HOF Gi Joes and the Adventure team body.




The later editions would become less and less dramatic.



For the full history, Check out the site below:
http://www.loucoporbonecos.com.br/falcon80/falcon80.htm

Those who would like to start into collecting this toyline will soon discover a new definition to the term "CHALLENGING".
If you have any interest, just LMK and I can try to walk you thru the ensuing mess you are about to get yourself into...

Looks more like 7-Zark-7 from Battle of the Planets to me (god I hated that robot as a kid!)


If you removed the helmet from the one in the pvc and white shirt he'd look disturbingly like George Michael Shocked

theres somethin strange goin on with that beard isnt there? what is it- has he got glandular fever or something?

hey meet my robot companion, one false move and he will walk toward you- unless you have a carpet.

or stairs

or floors that are not 100% level.

and when he gets to you - if he gets to you - he will...........stop

Becuase Falcon is so cool more pics:CONDOR is up to bat! A robot designed to take on the evil TORAK!

WAIT FOR IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The helmet comes of and cool transister face!

In 1994 Estrela released ne Falcon figure using old body molds in the style of Hall of Fame Gijoe. The Torak figure is on a Action Man body.
The figure next to him is a Ninja. the swords are weird because they were originally designed for the above Condor figure wich originaly came chromed.

The Brazilian Falcons are made very well! The 1992-94 are
even higher quality than USA Muscle body Joes. The joints
are made much better and don't disintigrate like the USA
versions have. The clothing is made of thick high quality
fabric so I recommend them.

I have only had one original figure and that is Condor
wich felt just a little lighter in weight but still high quality.On these
old Falcon figures from 25+ years ago the hands get hard Like on
Gijoe/Action Man so becareful when purchasing them.

The NINJA Figure's is designed after The Gijoe The Hall of Fame
figure Storm Shadow. Strom Shadow's mask is not removabale but molded on.
The Falcon figure has a Vintage Gijoe painted head
with Hall of Fame Eyebrow paint and has a removable cloth
mask.
I will post more pics soon!
