    Mexican 1982 GI JOES doubts

    I guys, Im new on this so Im looking for some tips and advice, I have some Mexican Snake Eyes (Lobo Solitario) two of them come in their original boxes and one is loose. Also, I have 3 flash soldiers (Soldado laser) two of them loose and one in its original box, I read a post related to the Mexican Snake Eyes created by dockingbay97 back in 2014 and learn some things about the mexican GI JOES but I have some doubts:

    what does it mean to have a "Estrela" name on the backs of the figures?

    Does it mean they are made in Mexico? if so,
    why some have the name almost erased (like my Snake Eyes) and;

    is it a problem if they have a swivel arm?

    Also the figures doesnt have any date printed on their legs.


    Thanks in advance!

    The Mexico section of the international archives is:

    The Mexican figures used the molds from Brazil, so some figures have the Estrela company name molded on them. Some of the figure molds had the Estrela name scraped off the mold.

    These toys were not made in 1982 and they are all swivel arm figures.

    Hope this helps.

    Mexican Joes were made by Auriken from 1985 to 1987, there are 3 series, all series 1 are straight arm figures and, as Chris said, Auriken used the Estrela molds to produce them.
