Hey guys. I saw that someone had posted what they thought was an error in the yojoe archives. This reminded me of an actual error I had run across quite some time ago, so I thought I would check and see if the problem was still there.
I army-build Steel Brigade figures, and some time ago I pruchased what was supposed to have been a complete Steel Brigade with correct accessories. Well, the item arrrived, and he had a Tiger Force Duke backpack. I was able to work out the problem with the seller, but he let me know that he had gotten his info on yojoe.
The reason I know that these two backpacks are of a different color is because I own a Tiger Force Duke and have acquired several of these backpacks in weapons lots - I have found the TF Duke backpack to be quite common. Also, about four or five of my Steel Brigade figures have been opened out of their sealed bag by myself, so I know that the backpacks I have for my nine or so Steel Brigades are correct, and that when one compares the TF Duke backpack to the Steel Brigade backpack colors, there is no doubt that they are a different shade. I have found that the easiest way to tell if your Steel Brigade has a Tiger Force Duke backpack is that the color of the backpack does not quite match the Steel Brigade's torso.
The problem is at the following two links:
Anyway, I am not trying to nit-pick at all, I just thought that a correction, or at least a notation of the different shade, would be of value to future Steel Brigade fanboys like me. - Thanks. MA2
