Description

NONE OF MY ITEMS ARE MINT! DO NOT BUY MY ITEMS IF YOU ONLY WANT MINT ITEMS, I DON'T HAVE ANY!

Warped Vintage 1970s Takara, new GIJOE, Action 21 Fighting Man, German Tank Commander Uniform Card with RARE JAPAN marked black boots!

タカラ・G.I. ジョー・アクション21ファイティング・マンドイツ戦車司令官制服

In 1970, Takara took over GI JOE from Sanyei and by 1972, they changed to "new GI JOE" with an anime type figure instead of the 1960s painted head Action GI JOEs or 1970s fuzzy head Adventure Team GI JOEs.
Much of the equipment was the same as HASBRO and Palitoy and many were variations just like the sets from Europe, South America and Australia.
This set was assembled by Takara using equipment and outfit only sold in the Japan market.

I am selling the equipment card as shown in the photos.

The window card is very warped, likely from water damage.
One end flap was torn and there is much wear and tear to the window card.
The window card tabs have popped out from the left side as shown.
The MP40 machine gun with elastic strap is from HASBRO GIJOE or Palitoy Action Man.
This set has the very rare soft black rubber boots marked JAPAN on one sole. The brown boots are very common as they were used on all Sanyei 1960s wood grain boxed GI JOE Action Soldier sets.

One might want to remove the outfit and equipment and put them on a Takara "new GIJOE" anime-style figure.

Please study the item closely and ask questions before buying.

I am happy to provide more info and photos as needed.

I also have this item for sale on my flickr and telus websites so I reserve the right to remove this listing at any time. Contact me if you want to see my other items.

The set is packed in bubble wrap inside a shipping box.
Shipping box weight and dimensions:
15.5 in X 11in X 3.25in 14 oz (39.5cm X 28cm X 8cm 394 grams)

If you want a different or cheaper postage method from the Canada Post web site, contact me before buying the item.

I calculate postage from zip code V6G 2E9 using www.canadapost.ca with the following options:
Shipping in Canada by Regular Parcel 7 business days with tracking and insurance.
Shipping to USA by Expedited Parcel 4 business days with tracking and insurance.
Shipping to Europe and Japan is expensive by air! Surface mail (boat) is cheaper and takes 4 weeks or more.

This is one of my many vintage GI JOE, Action Man, Action Joe and Takara GIJOE items that I am selling.

I make every effort to accurately describe all items,however,all items are sold "as is" with absolutely no returns and it is the buyer's responsibility to determine the exact condition of each item. I do not make any guarantees or warranties in regard to the descriptions of the physical condition, size, quality, or rarity. Prospective buyers should ask all questions to determine an item's condition, size and whether or not it has been restored. All items are sold for display purpose. If electrical, mechanical, talking mechanisms, or other working parts are inoperable, even if working at the time of sale, I am not liable due to the inherent nature of vintage collectibles. These toys were made to be played with and tossed a few years later. They were not designed with an adult collector mindset. Due to age they will exhibit stress cracks, poor talking mechanisms, oxidation to metal snaps, etc. Vintage tape often produces tape stains. Expect these issues.

I have owned this item for many years and it has always been stored in a box away from sunlight. It is time for someone else to take care of it.
Thank you for looking.
