The GI Joe 40th Anniversary sets were released by Hasbro in 2004. These are very accurate reproductions. Not sure if they were made from the original molds or not. Anyway this one is the Footlocker set. The original Footlocker came with just the wooden Footlocker box with the tray and the paper that shows where all the gear goes. But it did not come with any gear. This one comes with every piece of gear that fits in the tray plus a GI Joe with a reproduction box. They may not be originals but are not free. But then again less expensive than the originals.
Now as for the GI Joe that came with the set I made him the Field Phone guy. He has the field phone and the wire roll> Got to connect the company commander with the battalion. I think the LT just got a radio man. I used footlockers full of spare pieces for this and still have everything from my new footlocker. I may have to take the pistol for my upcoming Navy Corpsman though.
