1960's Gijoe Astronaut with some added accessories! Very Happy

The space program was a big thing when I was a child... Very Happy

I think mine is the early Astronaut suit Action Yankee...
The early astronaut suit & capsule did not come with accessories. The
accessories came later in 1967-68. But I think he needs some accessories... Laughing

Lost in Space

That's a nice showing Jim, the gloves can be a pain to keep on the figure. I've got a painthead Astronaut hanging above my bed, it's been there for years, it will soon be joined by some of my MAM astronauts, it will be a ceiling space diorama.

A great set, especially at the time because as you say Walt, the space programme was big news back then. I can actually still remember de-carding my astronaut suit and dressing my VAM in it. I never got a capsule though. I had to make do with a few homemade cardboard ones! Crying or Very sad

Then you have to kit out two more and fabricate an Apollo capsule before JohnnyE4 does it. bounce

Thanks Dal, ghost recon, and Theonemankid! Very Happy
Much appreciated! Very Happy

The chest pack does have the 2 suctions cups in the back. I
read they did not work well and Joe fell off many refridge's... Mad
Which would explain why many Astronaut pieces got broken... Shocked

I've got a Masterpiece Edition version, and the suit is pretty nice, stiff, but nice, so the ME Joe is staying in there.
