In the 1970 Takara licensed the popular American GI Joe 12 inch Action Figure from Hasbro, for the Japanese home market. In 1980 Takara produced its last series of 12 inch Combat Joe Figures, again licensed from Hasbro which were aimed at the collector market. The figures featured Takara own head sculpts rather than the more common GI Joe head sculpts, and had bodies which were very similar to the talking GI Joes of the time the Takara figures were all non talking versions. The Combat Joe series eventually consisted of 3 boxed figures, along with 7 different Uniform, Accessory, and Small Weapon sets.
The first sets to be released in 1984 were A WW2 American Soldier, A WW2 German Soldier and A Modern US Soldier. Followed later by a WW2 German Officer An American Police SWAT outfit, a WW2 German Panzer Officer, and a California Highway Patrol Police Motorcycle Officer outfit.
These outfits were also available as boxed dress figures. These sets were quite'realistically' detailed for their day. These outfits are quite rare to find in the UK, and are very difficult to find complete when they do appear for sale. This SWAT outfit would provide a nice addition to anyones action figure collection, offering a variation to the more usual Action Man and GI Joe figures of the same period.
