TBT – Takara G.I.Joe Promotional and Packaging Scans

In Japan, Takara released almost 30 G.I.Joe & Cobra figures in 1986 (24 to be exact). These figures were just like their Hasbro counterparts, but were offered on vibrant cardbacks. There were also some differences; For instance, Zartan was offered single carded and did not include his Swamp Skier. For this #TBT, we’re going back another TBT from 2018 where we headed to the land of the Rising Sun!

Thanks to Tony of the Takara G.I.Joe Facebook Group for sharing this assortment of Takara G.I.Joe Promotional and Packaging scans!

To give you an idea of scale, “A4 measures 210 × 297 millimeters or 8.27 × 11.69 inches. In PostScript, its dimensions are rounded off to 595 × 842 points. Folded twice, an A4 sheet fits in a C6 size envelope (114 × 162 mm).”
