    Tri-Klops 1982 - fully colored green sword belongs to which country?

    Hi. I have loose sword that belongs to Tri-Klops. The figure was traded in for Fisto because of a broken arm, but the sword accidentally ended up staying. It is fully green. No black painted handle. It doesn't say anything about it's country of origin. Just some numbers that read: "4301-2049". Then it looks like it has been modified as it's a clump where the country name should go and after it it says the year: "1982".

    It looks to be startin with an M, but Malaysia as I've googled didn't come with a fully green colored sword. Did the Mexico one?
    Also, why would they have covered it up? I'm pretty sure it is an original and no bootleg cause it was bought in a toystore in Sweden.

    Anyone who could shed some light to which country Tri-Klops this sword should go with, I'd be really happy

    Thanks for reading

    But why the cover up on my version?

    I think there was also a Top Toys (Argentina) variant which had an all green sword as well.

    Awesome! Thank you so very much. Not sure if I may be so bold in assuming it must have been the French version, given I bought him in Sweden. Seems it would be most logical they would transport them the shortest distance. However, maybe the logistics didn't work like that at all

    Anyway, I got my question answered. Thanks alot.

    France distributed in many other European countries, there is a strong probability that it is a french version you have in your hands.
