50th Anniversary Day 14: German Soldier and Australian Jungle Fighter

In 1966, Hasbro launched the ‘’Soldiers of the World’’. This sub-line consisted of 6 different soldiers dressed in authentic uniforms including:

- Russian Infantryman

- French Resistance Fighter

- British Commando

- Japanese Imperial Soldier

The last two, the German Stormtrooper and the Australian Jungle Fighter, are the ones that I made as customs. To represent different ethnicities, Hasbro gave these GI Joes brand new head sculpts.

To pay homage to the originals, I elected not to use my standard vintage head for these customs. I thought the 25th Hawk head had a good likeness to the original 12’’ ‘’European’’ style head.
