GI Joe 1967 1971 Takara New GI Joe German SS Officer Boxed

With the home grown popularity of GI Joe, Hasbro had a great licensing opportunity on it's hands. And they took advantage of it. They licensed the name and idea - and provided much of the equipment - to different toy companies in different countries throughout the world.  Initially, in some countries, there was little differentiation in the line to their American cousin other than the name.  But in some countries the figures were vastly different even in the onset - while other countries expanded the line to suit their own sensibilities - and even continued the line long past the time Hasbro USA had cancelled it. It's interesting to note that Takara, under Hasbro's license, was the only licensee world wide to use the German Nazi symbol (we'll avoid it's name as modern political correctness has created some strong filters and censorship of it). All other licensees and Hasbro would avoid it.

This is an all original German SS officer.  To the best of our ability, we understand he originally came with:
  • Figure
  • Uniform
  • Boots
  • Hat
  • Belt, waist
  • Belt, shoulder
  • Pistol with Holder
  • Record
  • Decals (for German symbol armband, medal)
  • Catalog
