    Smile What watch would GI Joe wear?

    Andy and I were talking over lunch today, reliving those adventures of GI Joe. For me - I pre-dated the GI Joe television cartoon:
    "Now you know - and knowings half the battle!"
    I am a bit more old-school - Eagle-Eye GI Joe.

    And of course, inevitably, the question of what would he (GI Joe that is ) wear while he is out battling the forces of evil?

    So what do you all say?

    Is there any question that it would be one of the military sharkhunters? My vote goes for the 750.

    Great thread, by the way!

    Cheers,

    I would have to say a very tiny one.

    My last GI Joe was 16 inches tall, had life-like hair and a Kung-Fu grip.

    I'm not "old school", I'm just plain old.

    I think you should be able to buy a little home made kit DOXA, a small kit of about 4 or 5 parts, and you glue them together, that way you feel like a master watchmaker for your GI JOE

    Some good answers, but c'mon - what about the others out there.

    Let me give you some more imagery:

    As many of you may remember there were a lot of different variations of GI Joe over the years. In the 1970's & 80's he moved away from being a strictly "GI Joe" to a more "adventure-oriented guy.

    GI Joe was also, among other incarnations:

    Talking GI Joe Astronaut
    GI Joe Man of Action - "with lifelike hair"
    The GI Joe Deep Sea Diver - circa 1965 complete with hard-hat diving gear!
    GI Joe Action Sailor
    GI Joe Action Marine
    GI Joe Action Pilot

    And remember all of the extra gear you could get?
    GI Joee Action Marine Equipment Sets
    Navy Attack Life Jacket
    Frogman Scuba Top (and bottom) Set
    Frogman Scuba Tank
    Shore Patrol Gear
    Survival Set
    Combat Field Pack Set
    Bivouac Sleeping Bag Set

    What else can anyone else remember?
