    Steel Brigade: Vintage Mail away & GoldHead!

    The Steel Brigade has always been one of the most sought after figures in the classic ARAH line. While some versions of the elusive mail away figure are easier to come by then other they are all wonderful additions to a collection for those who lucky enough to submit the mail away in their youth or be fortunate to have that type of change in their cough. For the rest of us, who love the character, want to fill that gap in their collection or who just want to army build we can all the the Major! Some easily noticeable changes have been made to assist collectors from telling the difference with just a little bit of research and investigation. Among those are slightly different color pallets, minor changes in paint applications on torso, waist, and head, reversed arm rivets and of course the Black Major stamp.

    These were nice. I like how the colors are different enough you can easily tell them apart from the real vintage figures, while at the same time perfectly filling their role in a collection.
