The 1996 Masterpiece Edition Action Marine set features a reproduction of the original 12-inch G.I. Joe from 1964. The action figure comes with a fatigue uniform, a fatigue hat, boots, dog tags, a training manual, and insignia sheets. The book "G.I. Joe: The Story Behind The Legend" by G.I. Joe creator Don Levine with John Michlig details the history of the creation of G.I. Joe.
This set is new inside a very nice box with plastic slip covers that are brittle and a little cracked in the corners that are hidden inside.
