8/13/2005 Check out the incredible Takara 40th Anniversary figures.
The information below I have culled from the alt.toys.gi-joe newsgroup and the picture I retrieved from alt.binaries.pictures.gi-joe as posted by user ironwolf-67.
Hasbro and the US Military have announced they have teamed up to offer a truly remarkable figure: a Navy Chief in his White Dress (for summer), Blue Dress (for winter) and Tan workwear. That is ONE figure with THREE outfits! An AMAZING figure! It also comes with a stand and US and Navy flags. And the cost? 29.95 plus shipping available through the Navy Exchange. TRULY amazing!
