Yojoe archive only says JCPenney with regards to the dark green bazooka. That's what I was going by. Do you have a picture of the dark green bazooka?
No, I don't have a picture taken of one.

Here's a closer look at the catalog info.
i like the description for flash - laserman with laser rifle...

Here's a few pictures. If you look close, the 2 bazookas look to be a different shade of color. Not quite sure though. I have the loose filecards of these, but not the sealed figures. Also you will notice on the back of the card that they hand typed the words (Mortar & Bazooka) next to his regular weapon classification. This is only visible on these particular cards.

If I only had a time machine.

The only bad thing would be is to put that Bazooka in the Soldiers hand (Bye Bye thumb)!!

There they are. Very cool. Thanks for sharing. Did you happen to go back and look at the back of the filecard of the picture that you posted, and you can see where they handtyped (Mortar & Bazooka)? It's kind of cool because it lets you know that it wasn't an error, and then I guess the catalog proves that also.

Ooh! I have most of the gear and figures to build my own set. Just added this to my short list of objectives.
Very cool info guys, thanks much! This is the new thing I learned for today.

I always loved the scenes they used in the catalogs and commercials. I wonder who was in charge of setting all that up. Talk about a dream job. Probably who ever did it, didn't enjoy it!

Have you seen the Dutch catalogs? I saw them over on joedeclassified, and those were amazing setups. That would have been amazing to set those scenes up, photgraph, and hopefully play with some toys in the process.

Thanks for posting that pic SP, I WANT THAT DARK GREEN BAZOOKA!

It looks like Z-Force green. I imagine it's a tough find. I wish I knew about it earlier so I could have been searching for the last 10 years.
Z-Force Green is too Bright. The Cobra Bazooka is a perfect match for the Green of the other 82 Joes, Grunt, Flash, Breaker, etc.
