Holy Harpoons, Joe! The GIjOE Collector’s Club has just released the first pic of actual product from its upcoming 12-inch exclusive figure set for  JoeCon 2016. According to their press release:

“This is the vintage-styled action figure from the 2016 GIJoeCon 12-inch boxed souvenir set. The set features this spot on reproduction of the rare and hard to find 1969 release of the Adventures of G.I. Joe AQUANAUT. 

Between the years of the original military themed G.I. Joe of the mid 1960s and the Adventure Team of the 1970s, there was a version of G.I. Joe produced for only ONE YEAR in 1969. These figures and uniform sets featured the now legendary “red top” packaging. Only two figures were produced that year and the Aquanaut was one of them.

The AQUANAUT comes fully outfitted in his classic black turtleneck sweater and black pants (which were unique to the 1969 release), sailor cap, boots, shoulder holster with revolver, and dog tag.He will also come in a reproduction long box INSIDE the larger outer box for the set.” —GIjOE Collector’s Club

Bottom Line: So far it looks pretty good. We’re especially diggin’ his black sweater. Ahoy!
