Classic Toy of the Day!

69joe5

Yes, friends, it's still more GI Joe... and a few years before Jaws, Joe was already fighting rubber sharks! Wow, ahead of his time, wasn't he? This was 1969, remember... I don't even know if Peter Benchley had even started writing the novel Jaws yet!

You know, someone should've really licensed from Hasbro the rights to make an aquarium toy based on this particular outfit/adventure set... with bubbles making Joe move, the treasure chest opening and closing... you get the idea!

Tomorrow, it's the last GI Joe post from the 1969 Sears Wish Book... but there's still more SWB features to follow!
