Another from last weekends GI Joe Show, it was the big find. These were made by Irwin either under license or for Hasbro. This was a blow molded vehicle and Hasbro didn't have the capability to make blow mold vehicles. Hasbro did have vehicles of their own but they were more expensive. Other vehicles they made were the command car, armored car, helicopter and Panther Jet. I would really like to get the jet as the GI Joe Action Pilot has no plane.
One always thinks of the WWII Germans with the motorcycle with side car. The machine gun is American but still I think Germans work best for this. They originally came with stickers for either Germans. Americans or Japanese. Anyway without the stickers all I need to do is switch the figure.
In the last photo I have my now uniform WWII Germans thanks to the uniforms I picked up at the GI Joe show. Those aren't the vintage GI Joe SOTW Germans but still nice.
