2017 Tiger Force Starduster (Black Major) - Around The Web

The Black Major Starduster figures were well done.  They offered collectors a chance to both own a cheap version of the original Starduster, but also in a variety of different colors, many of them homages to classic Joe subteams.  My favorite of this bunch is the Tiger Force Starduster figure.  To me, this looks like the type of thing that Hasbro might have done back in the '80's.  Plus, his helmet is a perfect match for the Red Laser Army The General figure.  Here's the best of this figure from around the web.

    1. Not really, a lot of people don’t want bootlegs or cheap copycats. Collecting vintage means you get the real thing, that matters a lot to many people. What I do have a problem is some people use figures like viper pilots or normal star dusters to try and dupe newbies to get vintage prices.

    2. So if they were exact reproductions and not cheap copycats, they'd be fine then. If someone found a warehouse tomorrow with 100,000 mint Stardusters in it, would that be okay? And then years later it turns out they was lying, the are the repro's but no one can tell the difference. HOBBY RUINED>
