    Weird Jitsu issue

    So someone contacted me asking about an issue he was having with his vintage Jitsu. I didn't know the answer, I thought someone here might. His boot material seems to be layered colored plastic, not just flesh tone painted black and gold. The leg broke off mid-boot, with no stress marks. The internal plastic looks black with swirls of gold, and more gold toward the top of the boot.

    It's stamped Mattel Inc. 1983. The person lives in England, I think. Any clues?

    Looks like it could be 'Rubber Boot'Jitsu France. They have several figures where the boots are molded to the legs just above the top of the boot and even the leg rubbers are molded into the top of the legs.
