GI Joe 1975 AT #7421 MOC MIB Jaws of
As the late 1960s progressed and the war in Viet Nam saw more and more local
protesting, GI Joe had to transition from his military beginnings to
survive. He became an "adventurer" - exploring and conquering the sea, the
jungle, the desert, and even space. And even dangerous situations in
the 'concrete jungle'. After the initial and short-lived 1969
transition series, the adventures of GI Joe were in full transition with the
military theme left far behind. By the time 1975 rolled around, the 12 inch
series had run its course. Even the colorful packing of the 1975 items
couldn't save Joe. The late run carded items from this year are very hard to
find today. This is one of them. The 1975 release of Jaws of Death!

- Wetsuit, Gray (the most susceptible to age rot - we don't believe ANY
