    Action Master Tracks, has gun, but no partner. Also no chest sticker.

    Any ideas?

    I'll take a stab.

    Euro Actionmasters have odd values. On ebay they can go for very little, because not many people know what they are or are really interested in them. Obviously the show guys like Bombshell, Tracks and Omega Spreem go for much more than dudes like Charger. So with gun I would put a guess out at $20 - $30. Maybe $40? But it's really hard to tell.

    He's pretty rare, Euro / Canada / Aus release only (?), and low distribution at that (only ever saw his assortment twice, first time got Bombshell and Charger, second got him).
    The missing sticker and lack of partner might push the price down, but he's got the gun and is pretty hard to find in any event.
    I've no idea what he goes for, though. He's one of those toys who can command a fair price simply because he is so rare, although I've no idea of the demand.

    Yeah he was released in Australia. I remember getting Bombshell and Charger as a kid, but I never got Tracks though. I think you're on the right track about his price though - it's pretty much impossible to give him a solid value. These Actionmasters are batshit-crazy rare, especially with their weapons and partners, but a lot of the time there is very little demand for them. It's kinda strange.

    $40 tops, the chest sticker makes all the difference

    Well, $40 would be nice. Thanks.

    Somewhat on topic, and out of interest. Does anyone know if there's a difference in value and/or rarity between the 2 variants of AM Bombshell? I got both fairly cheap, but I'm curious.

    There are variants? That is news to me I'm afraid. Can you post a pic and / or describe what the differences are?

    I believe one is more blue while the other is more purple. Wait, isn't there a third variant as well?

    Pics can be found online. I found them before, but I shouldn't take the time to do a search while I'm at work. ;) 
    The difference is in the colour, one is more blueish, other more purple. Another difference is in the country on the bottom of his foot, it's either printed macau or molded china.
    People say there's also a difference in the size of the paint app. of the eyes, but I'm taking that with a grain of salt, because I've seen differences in thta in plenty of figures, when the figures are otherwise the same.
