Continuing on with the 50th Anniversary of GI Joe series. This set was released originally in 1965. I have a few pieces from the 1970s 8 ropes of Danger set here too. The treasure chest, octopus, and the weight belt in ther background. as you can see the lead weights on the back of the belt were replaced with plastic. It was not nearly as nic as the original.
Currently one of the hoses to the helmet is missing, it is around here somewhere. I'll find it sometime after I quit looking for it. You could blow into the mouthpiece and bubbles would come from the back of the helmet just like a real deep sea diver.
Sam Cobra from the Johnny West series is standing in for GI Joe inside the suit. He's been in there for over 20 years and seems doing a fine job.

    I'm glad you clarified the model in the suit - I was sure to notice it was an imposter!!

    When ever you post my 13 year old son gets all excited and asks a million questions and drooooools!

    Thank you TubeAmp. Cool video although it looks like the suit was inflated. There is a 10cc album cover too I think.
