    This is my favorite GI Joe set which is why I have four of them. This is one of the few military sets that came with a figure. Previous sets would require buying a figure, the main set, and a helmet. This set came with the figure, uniform boots scarf and beret, M-16, 6 grenades, pistol with holster and belt, and the communications set.
    The bazooka came in a separate set with the uniform, bazooka and 6 shells which is called the Special Forces Set. There were also other sets that came with the accessories such as set 7533.
    I got the bazooka from the Backyard Patrol Set which was a sealed bag with the bazooka and all the accessories which I unbagged. The Backyard Patrol sets were sold at the end of the military era around 1969-1970. I hate getting the sealed sets as I really like to take them out and pass out the pieces to my Joes.
    The AK-47 and Thompson are Ultimate Soldier and the shoulder holster is from the 1970s Adventure Team era.

      I have seen that the bazooka shoots. But you must have a lot of money because that set is super rare and expensive. AND YOU HAVE 4 OF THEM!!!
      Lucky, lucky.

      Very kind of you Vincent. The last one I got was a Ken doll dressed in the Green Beret uniform and it was $8. I bought a hat for $10 and a scarf for $35 and I was all set. That isn't bad for one of these.
