GI Joe ''Retro'' Carrying Case/Footlocker

Ok, this one is a little different than what we're used to. One thing I liked about the original ARAH line was the multitude of products that augmented and complimented the toy line. The old figure/accessory carrying cases are a great example of these. For no good reason, I wanted to try to make one of my own. This was a very simple project. I started by finding an inexpensive plastic tackle box at a store, painted it green, printed the ''To the Rescue'' art at cut it to fit and that's it. It has 6 compartments that can fit figures or accessories.

Enjoy!

OB

Very cool. I does look retro '80's. I would have bought it back then. Cases in general are cool.
