Hasbro, in the early stages of the GI Joe line, produced a Duffel Bag so kids could carry their gear while sporting the Real American Hero theme ! This was a total impulse purchase for me. I came across this while trollin' Ebay. I have never seen one before and if I would have seen it in 83', I would have been lugging my Dungeons and Dragons manuals back and forth in this !!
I could not find any information on it, but from the selection of characters I'd date it about 1983. Its made of very thick canvas. Measures 19 X 16, so its big enough to carry quite a bit ! The Screening of the graphic is done extremely well. The pictures do not do it justice. The detail has great depth to it and shows off well.
Two new characters of 1983's selection, Snow Job and Gung Ho !!
Stalker represents the Original 82' line alongside newcomer Tripwire !!
Oh yeah, look at the tag !! Made in 1983 by Hasbro Industries !! Thanks Spidey !!
It funny, I started doing this Blog to write about my collection. In the process I have found or been introduced to items that I never even knew about. I was a massive GI Joe addict and lusted over every item that came out. Then I find out there was more. Its like being a kid again, uncovering a lost gem on Ebay or getting introduced to the world of Remco reading Revenge from the Cosmic Ark. Even after all these years I can still find something new, that's really cool !!
