GI Joe 1966 #7531 MOC Army Ski Patrol
In 1964, the original GI Joe marketing plan was
simple. Sell them the doll...err...action figure :-) and then
sell them plenty of outfit/accessories to go with it. Seems
simple today but it was unique in the toys for boys market (but
successfully implemented with Mattel's Barbie 5 years earlier) of the
early 1960s. Each item is displayed where it could easily be
seen on a store shelf - each one sewn on a card and visible through
cello window or seal. This is one of the sets you could buy
to compliment your GI Joe soldier, sailor, marine, or pilot.
This particular set contains:
- Snow Parka w/Bear Patch
- Pants (White)
- Helmet w/Bear Insignia (White)
- Goggles (Green w/White Trim)
- Ski Gloves (White)
- Skis (x2)
- Ski Poles (x2) <- Hard to find unbroken!
- Boots, Short Black x2
