GI JOE COBRA Check point Alpha Watch tower Diorma - eBay (item 370158662847 end time Feb-19-09 07:49:31 PST)
Saw the link on the "G.I. Joe on Ebay Now!" on the right side of the Tank. Thought it could be interesting to see a diorama using Checkpoint Alpha.
Wow.. talk about false advertisement.
It's a PTE Watchtower, in a package. It's not G.I. Joe. It's not Checkpoint Alpha. It's not even a diorama.
It's a packaged PTE Watchtower playset.
This one is almost as bad:
AT least it says "PTE" in the heading. But it's not the Bridgelayer, it's a bridge playset. And it's not G.I. Joe.

Yeah, ya gotta watch some of those sellers. They label any military 4 inch figure as Gi Joe. I wonder how many uninformed people have bought stuff thinking is was real Joe and it isn't.

Yes it is false advertising, but for me, when I read PTE, all i see is gijoe diorama. Still need to find a bridge set. They stink at making figures but their playsets and vehicles are awesome.

I am sure the seller is trying to grab the attention of diorama builders and not trying to false advertise.
Anyone buying this and thinking it was "GI Joe" would be a tool : - (
