In the late 1990's, foreign Joes that weren't the Chinese exclusives, later run Estrela figures or a few, select Funskool releases were rather scarce to come by. You would see some displayed at conventions and there were a few pictures online. But, information was incomplete. One day, though, a bunch of Korean carded Joes showed up on online auction sites. The figures themselves were Hasbro produced items from the early 1990's. These generated quite a bit of discussion as collectors argued over whether to bid them up because they were Korean or to ignore them since the figures weren't exclusive: just the packaging.
The end result is that the figures didn't sell for much. I think I paid $15 for the figure below and sold it for about the same a couple of years later. But, I liked this Gung Ho. I was drawn to him because I had bought a 1992 Gung Ho figure at retail and considered him one of my "return to collecting" figures. But, I also liked the juxtaposition of the American flag on the packaging and with the figure, yet with Korean writing.
There were quite a few figures in this series. But, the images I saved are long gone and I didn't save a scan of the cardback. This Gung Ho is another one of those little oddities that I've owned over the years that I wish I had hung onto. Not that it's overly valuable or rare. But, the figure is interesting and is a fun way to show off just how influential the Joe line was around the world.
