I've done my part in raising the priceson those BYP uniforms. I've bought and opened almost a dozen of them... Very Happy

The first sets I bought from Cotswolds were $20 each.

Cotswold has done Custom Japanese soldiers, but back in the early 1990's there were lots of these Backyard Patrol Japanese uniform sets on the market. Cots was selling them for $20 each.

Other stuff was very expensive at the time, but these things were cheap.

Back then they were very common, same with the space suits, they were everywhere! The killer is finding the loose accessories that go with them, another challenge all it's own!

Danny, try to imagine a store display of these GI Joe Action Soldiers of the World. I vividly remember December, 1966. The GI Joe ASotW large window box sets were not big sellers so they were marked down to $4.99 each. There was an island display stand, 3 shelves high and about 15 feet long. There were a couple dozen sets of each figure: the British & Canadian Commando, the Australian Jungle Fighter, the Russian Soldier, the French Resistance Fighter, the German Stormtrooper, and the Japanese Imperial Soldier.

It was beautiful.
