Now that's a toy I'd have liked to receive in the olden days



  1. I bet you could run it across the floor and sparks flew out the back.

  2. I remember those. My youngest brother had a GI Joe with spacesuit and mercury capsule. I have no idea what he did with it. I seem to recall it my parents attic back in the 70s after my father retired from the Air Force.

    1. I would have killed back in the day to have that set-up! I remember the Sears Christmas catalog and drooling over all the cool GI Joe adventure toys.

      Now that I think about it, I would still love to have that old GI Joe capsule and GI Joe in space suit. It would be hanging in my office!

  3. Funny. I still have my GI Joe stuff. The jeep cannon would not launch the rounds like my brothers set. That was the beginning of the child safety guidelines. Soldering iron through the spring slot melts plastic blocking the rounds from dropping in the laugh area BFYTW Good times, saw on local show a collector with a museum in a small town of all the things Joe. I may donate to him
