    It's been awhile since I've posted anything. I'm still actively collecting toys from my era 1960's and 70's. I have always liked the early Gi Joes as I was around 9 years old when they first came out in 1964. Slowly over the years since then I have got back into picking the figures up. It's fun and a good way to enjoy retirement. This is one of my recent buys to fit in with my small collection.
    The figure first came out in 1965 and carried on through up to 1973 when it continued in the Adventure Team Lineup going through minor changes. The very first set had a white flag with the buoy along with square toe metal weighted boots. My diver is not a first edition as the flag is red and weighted boots rounded although it is still an early issue. The suits are coated with a rubberized interior which over the years tends to harden and disintegrate basically turning a white powder which flakes and falls off. I have one such suit that this happened to. This one in the photo has kept it's texture and not dried out. It's fun searching the Joes out as they turn up in the strangest places at times.

      Welcome back!! So good to see you posting again. I too was absent for about 8 months. This is a GREAT GI Joe! Though I had quite few GI Joe uniforms and accessories, I always wanted one with this diver suit and never had one. Great post to come back with Roddy!

      Hey Scotty good to hear that all is well with you. I have missed the group great people with wonderful items and sharing kind words always. I've been catching up on posts your dog collection seems to continue growing this is awesome. It's fun getting more into the Gi Joes, Johnny West and other figures of my youth something I can share with my grandson and a new one arriving in 6 or so months. You have a great weekend Scotty!!

      Congrats on that new grandchild that's on the way! At this point, we have only Granddogs. Hopefully, we'll get a grandchild, or two, later down the road.

      It took me 60 + years to finally be blessed Scotty. Time to enjoy watching them grow up. I hope that one day soon you will be a proud grandpa.

      Now we are talking. One of the best outfits they had for Joe. Looks like it is on a 64 Joe with the smaller head.

      Thanks Fortapache I'll check the mark again I was thinking that it is the 65 Joe and with the smaller head it more than likely is the 1964. I have a question for you on your Gi Joe brown motorcycle sidecar is it marked IRWIN or with a date somewhere on the bike?

      I thought it was you who had posted some info on the T. Eaton company or research but not seeing that in any of your posts?

      No Phil it wasn't me.
