MOBAT Patent Drawing
The internet never fails to bring up interesting historical tidbits about, well, everything. Basically the whole of human knowledge is at our fingertips. What does that mean for a fellow like me? It means I can search Google for toy patent drawings. Today I managed to dig up the MOBAT. These things can be a bit difficult to locate due do the esoteric naming conventions. The venerable GI Joe tank is listed in its patent application as a track laying vehicle. Okay, sure. I’m sure there are more of these to be discovered; it’s just a matter of finding them.
