Filecard Information


"My first years in the Army were extremely valuable, as they served as the foundation upon which my G.I. Joe career would be built. Every G.I. Joe worth his weight in ammo received training at one of the U.S. military branches, although no training can replace field experience when it comes to raw combat. When the shells start exploding and the bullets start to fly, you'd better know how to react with split-second reflexes. As a G.I. Joe, you not only learn when to stand and fight, but when to take cover as well!"

Variations

The Action Soldier that came with the Original Action Team boxed set came with differently colored accessories. Additionally, while the individually boxed Action Solder came with a painted portrait on his filecard, the Action Soldier from the Original Action Team boxed set came with a photographed portrait on his filecard.

The serial numbers on the bottom of Action Soldier's feet were made in two different ways. One version had them printed directly on the figure's brown boot. The other version had the bottom of the boot painted black before the serial number was applied.

Body Construction

Action Soldier shares his upper arms, lower legs, and upper left leg with G.I.Joe (1994).  The upper arms were also shared with Action Marine, while the upper left leg with Action Pilot, G.I.Joe, and Action Marine. The head mold was shared with Action Marine.

While not an action figure, in 1998 the mold was used to create the Action Soldier Keychain.
