My Dad has this set, and every time I'm there I check it for any signs of rot. None so far, and it's been 10+ years.

However, the suit is hard to put on the figure, at least I remember it being, as I broke the arm of Dad's 40th Joe (stupid clear pegs).

Also, the TNT Sticks have a soft rubbery fuse, which is very nice.

I apply talc/baby powder to the insides of my rubber dive suits. They
go on the Joe fairly easy that way and serve the purpose of keeping
the rubber from sticking to the plastic and maybe causing a weird reaction?...

I also have the 40th black dive suit and its still in good condition like your
dads... Very Happy

I bought a new orange rubber suit off a guy in Brazile that owns the molds and
it is starting to fall/rot apart already... Bought it approx 3- 4 years ago...

The 40th wet suit is very heavy and thick. You can't move his arms because it is so stiff. When you move the arm or forearm up it snaps back.

I think it may be indestructible...

Jim's right, talcum powder..

I was using talcum powder on my vam boots back in the day, although i didn't really need to because the boots were not first issue rubber ones. I do use talcum powder on most MAM rubbery/vinyl footwear.


Bri, good comic strip as usual! cheers

See, after the incident, Dad said talcum powder too, but in a way like I was supposed to know?

I didn't.
