mystery_joe_figureI’ve made no secret of the fact that first and foremost, I’m a Real American Hero fan.  The Anniversary stuff is great and all, but it would be impossible to match what the Real American Hero did and has done over its twelve year history, both in the states and abroad.  In these days of the “information age” it’s highly doubtful that any line will have the same variety and intrigue as the original Real American Hero did, and a perfect example of that is this:

Mystery Gray and Yellow Flash

There have been rumors and inquiries going on for years about this figure, and it would finally appear that Blood for the Baron has uncovered the mystery.  After much searching David Tree from the Blood for the Baron forums has uncovered the mysterious “F Force”, supposedly a companion to the more well-known SAS, Z-Force, Q-Force, and Space Force, all European exclusives with some unique paint deco’s and code names to separate them from the American versions (as well as some original Palitoy sculpts with more limited articulation).  A very nice write up by David can be found here.

The intricate details of this discovery are still somewhat foggy, and it remains to be seen if any of this can be 100% confirmed, but it’s very cool to at least get some insight into this figure which has remained such a mystery for the past two decades plus.

And heck, even without this whole mystery going on, you should add Blood for the Baron to your bookmarks anyway, just to check out the incredible Action Force comics and information absolutely loaded within.  A must-see site, even without this article, this just makes it even more interesting.
