More of my GI Joe spare parts and figure action. This is an Action Pilot 40th anniversary figure circa 2003. These sets were about $35 which is much less $150-$200 for an original figure. Note they did not do sets for the more expensive figures like the Green Beret although Palitoy did.
Anyway this is a mix of pieces from the 40th anniversary series, Cotswold and Ultimate Soldier. The shorty M-16 and smoke grenades are Ultimate Soldier. The shoulder holster and pistol are Cotswold. The rest is either 40th or a piece or two of original.
Anyway the job of this figure is to pilot my Ultimate Soldier Little Bird Helicopter. Unless he had the rare Irwin blow mold Panther jet, the originals would have loved to have something like this. Usually they just got thrown off a roof with a homemade parachute.
