GI Joe 1964 1966 Figure Set SOTW #8103 Original French Resistance Fighter

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 Imperial Soldier (with a unique Asian head sculpt), Russian Infantryman, French Resistance fighter, British Commando, and Australian 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. 

The French Resistance Fighter included:

  • Soldier of the World Figure
  • French Beret (Usually incised "HASBRO JAPAN")
  • Knitted Sweater (Usually tagged "G.I. JOE BY HASBRO JAPAN")
  • Denim Pants (Usually tagged "G.I. JOE BY HASBRO HONG KONG")
