Welcome to the Outpost. Today I’m checking out an original G.I.Joe 1982 M.M.S. I don’t normally collect boxes but I picked this one up because this was the very first G.I. Joe vehicle I ever had. Hawk did not get popular until he became General Hawk in 1986, another awesome figure, but I had formed a love for Hawk back on the special Christmas day when I received this set with Hawk.
My brothers and I received a lot of the 82 vehicles and figures but this one has always had a special place in my heart. Having the box brings back fond memories from my childhood and the instant live I had for G.I. Joe that faithful snowy day all those years ago. What was your first Joe vehicle? Sound off below and tell us about your first G.I.Joe vehicle and what made it special to you! Make sure to check back for our next discussion.
