Vintage 1970s Cherilea (aka Sharna) Viper Tank With Original Box for 12" GI Joe and Action Man Figures, UK.
When I learned about the multitude of 12" vehicle offerings that you could get for your big Joes (aka Action Man) back in the day across the pond, I have to admit I felt jipped. How cool is this massive Viper Tank?! The answer is, it goes to 11. You can take your Green Beret machine gun emplacement and go home crying, because when your buddy's Joe rolls in with a TANK, that emplacement doesn't stand a chance. It's got real rubber treads, floating bogey wheels for realistic movement over terrain, the turret rotates, and the barrel elevates. Plus, awesome color graphics on the front of the box. Why didn't we have these in the U.S.?
1. Complete, correct stickers from Action Man HQ in England.
2. Barrel holds elevation nicely.
3. Smooth action on the turret, bogey wheels, and treads.
4. Missing one bogey wheel and antenna.
5. The Joe figure is not included. He's just there for scale (and to own my living room in this bad ass tank).
We also have several Cherilea WW2 German Motorcycles with Sidecar, and several Cherilea Armored Scouts (both Whippet and Cub) in the shop, some with box. You can see one of the armored Cub Patrol Scouts in the background on the left side of pictures 1 and 10. You can also see a Tonka Winnebago Indian chief that we are considering customizing into an Urban Assault Vehicle from Stripes. (And yes, we too wanna be Sgt. Hulka's new big toe.)
