eBay auction for 1984 G.I.Joe Zap with Rare Alternate Head ends Today

At the tail end of last month, I shared word on quite the rarity on eBay – a 1984 G.I.Joe Zap with Rare Alternate Head on eBay. The final hours of the auction are upon us, with less than 6 hours to go (as of the time of this post) until this beautiful specimen finds a new home.

By way of seller billn44 comes this intel directly from the 1984 G.I.Joe Zap with rare alternate head sculpt listing:

Here is an ultra rare 1984 GI Joe Bazooka Soldier ZAP MOC. This figure has an alternate head sculpt variation which I’m told Hasbro thought about doing for several of its original figures but was never mass marketed. Based on comments I’ve gotten about the figure it is really rare. The figure is sealed on its original card which is a 32-back and has not been tampered with in any way. The bubble does not have any dents in it. The card does show some wear. It does not lie perfectly flat. There is some light soiling at the GI Joe name on the top of the card. The card is unpunched. A rare chance to get this desirable variation for your collection. It makes an excellent display piece. Please look at the pictures above. I will be putting up many more early MOC figures and some sealed vehicles over the coming days. I can combine shipping on multiple purchases. Buyer pays shipping and the shipping quote includes insurance.

The current bid on the auction should come to no surprise, as this piece is sure to climb a bit more before all is said and done. To both Seller & Buyer, if you read this, CONGRATS to you both! It’s a fantastic piece and it’s been fun to join in on discussions all over our community thanks to this auction.
