 First release unpunched Series One: Zap.  The original nine figures in the ARAH line on 9-back card are exceptionally rare.  This is the “2-handle bazooka” variant.  Incredibly, our example sports a perfect o-ring and has no leg movement whatsoever.  In our opinion this piece is actually undergraded!  We were a bit perplexed with the figure subgrade of 80 as we could not identify any weakness at all with the figure.  A true gem with only one graded higher, and smart money says this one presents just as well.  A showstopper of a piece that will surely be of special interest to advanced G.I. Joe collectors.  Encapsulated by AFA (85, 90-85-80), #12433280
