Theodore Roosevelt G.I. Joe

I recently discovered that back in 1996 Hasbro came out with a Classic Collection of 12″ action figures that harkened back to the 1960′s style G.I. Joe’s which had more realistic clothing and equipment. Included among the collection were a “Historical Commanders” series which included Colin L. Powell, Omar N. Bradley, George Patton, Dwight Eisenhower, George Washington, and….Theodore Roosevelt! The TR G.I. Joe came outfitted  in Rough Rider garb, ready for a charge up San Juan hill. They were more of a collector’s item than a toy even at the time, and today can be found on Amazon and elsewhere for $50 and going up from there. Still would be kind of cool to give to your kid though. “Now son, this is an All-American hero.”
