Got this today....off shitbay but as I CAN'T BE ARSED uploading pics I found this link showing it all. Its from the 1994 Hasbro range and compliments the 'MISSION EXTREME' doll (as seen on the box art). I got him the other day to go with it Very Happy

Its a nifty bit of kit, harking back to the Palitoy glory days with a modern twist...The pack can carry his bits save the lean too frame and fire etc.

Not that keen on the new action Man stuff, it's the prevelant use of orange on the packaging.

That trip to Amazon reminded me of the "3-Wolf T-Shirt" review Meme that had been going on for a while, just spent another long while reading them and chuckling away

Nice score! Reminds me of the Special Operations Kit I had as a kid.

Yeah Hypo, it has that sort of feel to it and as mentioned the Explorer Base Camp from the Palitoy days...It really goes well with the Mission Extreme figure (well, that IS the idea).....The doll is one of the earlier ones with arms and legs that do bend with clicks but aren't as posable as later ones. I swapped the doll with a later one with a tough face and more posable joints. I never really warmed to the electric orange or the black/black logo either....

Hasbro really misconceived the new version in many ways really but they did make some nice items like these once in a while.
