The GI Joe is a Vintage Brown Flocked Hair figure, with Hard Hands, which dates it  to 1970 to 1973 period. 
The flocked hair is in generally good condition save for a small bald spot on the front of the head. The eyebrows have minor paint rubs wear.
I can’t see any obvious stress cracks in the figures, body,  joints or limbs, of this old GI Joe. Save for two very minor crack which are just beginning in each knee joint ( see picture) 
The figure stands and poses on its own, and the figures  joints are still reasonably tight, including the shoulders, which are usually very loose on these figures as the plastic collars in the shoulder joints wear out easily. 
The pull to talk cord extends and retracts as it should, the Talking mechanism works at a correctly regulated speed, however the spoken commands are a little muffled and a little fast, indicating a good clean and service of the mechanism is needed.  The figure speaks All it’s phrades readily, however, some patience is required to get the figure to say all of its different commands.
The box shows age and storage related wear and tear, the box has creases, splits, rubs, and tears to the printed pictures, where labels have been removed, etc. 
The box is complete with  the yellow side insert card which has the printed commands the talking man of action speaks printed on it, which sits alongside the figure, inside the box. 
The box holds together and displays nicely with the figure.
This is a Genuine  50 year old figure, which has been played with, so it’s not shop fresh, but it is an honest example of the late 1970’s children’s toy which is now becoming collectible
Overall this is a very nice figure and outfit and will be a fine addition to anyone’s collection or a fine Stand Alone figure.
I appreciate that collectors have different standards, so I have included plenty of photographs so that you can judge the quality and condition of this item for yourself and decide if this is the one for you.
The uniform items and toy model weapons included in this auction are small plastic toy models intended for use with a 12 inch action figure, they are not real and can’t be worn or used by a real life size person.
