Rarities - Plastirama Filecards

In the mid 2010's, I tried to set up an international filecard archive with scans and translations of every foreign filecard I owned.  For a time, it was up and I finished translating all the Plastirama filecards from Argentina.  Then, I lost the file....

So, I thought I'd put up the scans of the old filecards and, over time, maybe retranslate them.  Most of the text isn't all that interesting.  But, below, you can see most of the more common Plastirama filecards.  There's a few gems like the Cobra De Hielo being a new character and Sgto. Slaughter's name being Alan Heavy.  But, for the most part, the filecards aren't all that great.  But, they are a fun piece of the line's history.

  1. The English/American file names seemed strange. I know Argentina has a fair amount of national origins to its populace, but from English speaking lands...I didn't think were that many.

    The good thing about them being different character is they can be redesigned to look less like the GI JOE designs they use.
