GI Joe 1966 #8101 MOC SOTW JAPANESE
Accessory Card Factory Sealed
The original GI Joe American soldier was unique in appearance -
and showed the 'hard life' he lived with the large visible scar that was
featured prominently on his cheek. When Hasbro came out with the
'soldiers of the world' line, they probably wanted to distinguish these
foreign soldiers easily and left the scar of the face (in addition the
face is a different sculpt). There were 6 soldiers released - still
not sure exactly what went into their final decision process in how they
chose the particular 6). The soldiers included: German
Stormtrooper, Japanese fighter (with a unique Asian head sculpt), Russian,
French Resistance fighter, British fighter, and Austrian Jungle
fighter. The Soldiers of the World were marketed in two main ways -
you could buy the figure with no accessories (small window box) and then
the weapons (small card)...or the figure and accessories were available in
a large window box. This is the small carded accessory pack for the
Japanese Soldier. It contains:
- Japanese Backpack
- Japanese Style Bayonet
- Pistol Belt with 2 Japanese Ammo Pouches
- Order Of The Kite Medal
- Nambu Pistol with Holster
- Ariska Rifle with Sling
