This is kinda complicated!
>For the 1960's versions, here's what you'd find:
I’ve seen four before, but a lot of refrences group the Marine/army guy as the same.... even though I’ve seen two different outfits: cammo and OD. They’re often both referred to as Rocky.... does one have another name?
>In 1965 they released a Black Action Solider and same sculpt as the regular figures.
So.... the same head sculpt? What was the basic outfit like?
>The Soldiers of the World sets were a different face sculpt, no scar and came in the different hair colors as well, except for the Japanese figure which only came in black and was a specific head sculpt.
>there was Japanese soldier, French, Russian, and German soldiers that had a European appearance
....er.... wait.... there’s another series? Did they ALL use the same sculpts? What were the basic outfits like for these guys?
>There were also talking versions of all of the standard sets too.
Were they different from the regular ones sculp-wise? (I could never keep track of all the talking guys....)
>The 1969 sets were released only one year, and they had the Adventurer, and Aquanaut and Talking Astronaut. Those all came in all the same hair colors. A Negro Adventurer was also released.
>That led into the fuzzy haired era in 1970.
Wow. The reason I’m wondering is ‘cos I got a set of True Dave’s 8" scaled Joe heads and I’m wondering which Joes to make with them. I’m also hoping this doesn’t become another series I have to obsessively build. (I got pics of that training tower already.... a bad sign.)
