The Power of Packaging: Battle Gear Accessory Pack
What a concept the GI Joe Battle Gear sets were. I wish the Star Wars line had offered something like this, as most of my childhood figures’ weapons went missing fairly quickly. The only downside to the Joe replacement gear were the odd color choices. I wonder if any of the Joe archaeologists have discovered the reasoning behind the lack of neutral colored gear. My theory is that the bright colored accessories would catch kids’ eyes on the pegs.
The team art, like the individual character card art, is brilliant. Being able to see practically the whole ’82 team is a treat, even thought there’s a cut-and-paste quality to some of it.
