Welcome to the Outpost. Today I’m looking at the 1984 G.I.Joe Slugger. This is an iconic vehicle and was used frequently in the early cartoon. This is a bad ass 6 wheeled tank and it is one of my favorite vehicles I never had as a kid. There were 2 updates a solid green and a tan that I do not own. I do have 3 originals with the gun so I’m pretty happy about that. This one is just an awesome vehicle that is simple but packs a big punch.
This would have been a great modern style vehicle but got put on the short list. G.I.Joe was notorious for large vehicles back in the day and I think this one would be a great 6 inch vehicle that would maybe be a little steep these days but would definitely fly off the shelves. Overall this is a great vehicle and the original is solid and does not have easily broken parts so it’s pretty easy to find one in good condition. Who loves the Slugger?
Who thinks this would be a great 6 inch vehicle? Sound off below and let us know! I love the Ram and I think a Ferret should be next on the 6 inch production line, but that is a story for another day. Make sure to check back for our next discussion.
