The Power of Packaging: Desert Patrol Attack Jeep and Desert Fighter

My first exposure to this set came in the pages of Lee’s Action Figure News and Toy Review magazine. I still have that particular issue, the first toy magazine I had seen on a newsstand–well, a comic shop stand to be exact.

So is this the first example of the GI Joe line packaging a vehicle and “driver” figure together?
