I got this for Christmas, 1973. I was so excited, I broke the muzzle off of the rifle trying to take it out of the box. My brother and I had about 5 G.I. Joe’s and countless accessories. Won’t ever forget that.
I remember the green jacket with the extra bullets on it. Though, even then I knew it wasn’t cool to have Joe kill a rare white tiger! My Joe kept him like an attack dog! Johnny West had no chance!
All the Gi Joe adventure team gear always came with and adventure team comic story about all the specific adventures. Good ol memories.
