The"old" gijoe like Corps!
« on: December 8, 2005, 08:36 PM »
Well does anyone remember them.....they went out a few years ago replaced by the softer plastic "bulkier" edition.    O,yes Does any one know the name of the corps figures that were star wars scale but some what "search & rescue" like.I know one of the packs came with a cop and two fire fighters....It would help with my Resident Evil Customs.
Cheers!

I remember these  ;D

I grew up on GI Joe, but suddenly they canceled the line. I tried the GI Joe Extreme line...I think you all can guess how that ended. I finally found CORPS! one day at Wal-Mart and was hooked. They were affordable enough for even me to get with my allowance. They hold a special nostalgic place in my heart, right up there with the GI Joes they fought alongside with.

I'd try Wal-Mart or eBay. I know I picked up a bunch of those cops back in the day for hostages and stuff at Wal-Mart.

I saw these at Wal*Mart, and am thinking about collecting some of them, especially because of there low price.

Corps! Figures
« Reply #7 on: June 4, 2006, 08:44 PM »
I just bought my first Corps! figure at Wal*Mart, Stryke. The figures have tons of accesories and great paintjobs, and they're cheap enough that I can buy them with my pocket money. The figures are only $0.97, small vehicles $4.97, and large vehicles are $9.97. The large vehicles are especially a great deal, as you get something that if Hasbro released it, it would cost $25-35 easy, but it's only $10. So does anybody else collect Corps! or is thinking about collecting them?

Are the legs peg like SW or are they Gi joe type at the hip?

Never mind I answered my own Q.
I'm gonna have to get tons of these for fodder.

Are the heads the same size as the modern star wars figures.

And the legs look like the star wars style over the G.I. Joe.
