    This was released as an Action Marine set but as I don't have any vehicles for the marines I made him army.
    This set did not come with a figure but with many unique accessories. I could have sworn it came with the grease gun but that could have been the UK Action Man version. Anyway mine has one. It did come with the jacket, helmet, pistol, belt, and holster. Also the radio on the tripod, macine gun with tripod and ammo box as seen in the second picture.
    Back in the 60s the only vehicle for the tank commander would be the 5 Star Jeep (coming up eventually) or blow molded armored car by Irwin. The armored car was rather cheesy.
    About 2000 the tank commander finally got some worthy vehicles.

      Just fantastic FortApache!
      Such a great diorama and I love the vehicle tuning apparatus (with gauges!), and the other GI Joes in their vehicles, ready to go.. So much detail you put in!
    4. racer4four racer4four, 7 years ago
      Doh! Vincent tells me that the "tuning apparatus" is the radio!
      He loves the detail too, but wondered what year the set came out?
    5. fortapache fortapache, 7 years ago
      It was made in 1967 and 1968 racer4four and Vincent. Very glad you liked it.

      Thank you very much Manikan. Sorry about the marines but they do have a flame thrower.
