    ^Blue-green, a sort of teal color.

    But Ronny, IDK what you mean about a shark.

    Of note regarding collecting, I nabbed a very nice Action Man Power Hog ATV for a custom villain vehicle.

    My mistake. I saw the shark on the cover and must have confused it with the "Danger of the Depths" set which came with similar scuba gear and a shark.

    No worries. There's plenty of room in the bottom for a Joe shark, octopus, or hammerhead stingray. I store my underwater explorer sled in mine.

    Thanks! Much appreciated!

    That backs up a theory I had. I noticed the red of the Adventure Locker matched the red "GI JOE" on the 1964 Action Soldier and Action Marine boxes and the Astro Locker's blue matched the Action Pilot's blue "GI JOE". Based on that, I wondered if the Aqua Locker might be the teal color of the Action Sailor's "GI JOE". Apparently, it is probably close enough to go with that theory.

    There's one on Ebay for $75 with a repro box.

    Clever theory and good observation.

    After I got the repro Aqua locker, I had a great idea to commission an AT version, but it was too expensive.

    that would be easy with a Adventure locker repro set and some yellow paint along with an old locker. Just plain yellow with a big AT emblem on he lid? Use the Adventure locker inside litho and it matches with a original tray. I end up with a lot of spares off ebay.

    That's a good idea. I was going to do a black footlocker with the lid art from the triptych from the Sears Super Adventure set or Deluxe Adventure set.

    Too bad Hasbro didn't do a locker for each branch of the service in 64.
