OFFICIAL COLLECTOR DISPLAY CASE
Series: One (1982)
The Official Collector Display Case was first released in U.S. toy stores in late 1982. It was sold in 1983 and 1984, then discontinued in 1985.
Made of black plastic, the case held twelve figures, had a section to hold filecards, and another section to hold accessories. The case could open up and be displayed, or closed and carried.
Easily Broken/Lost Pieces
The straps that hold in the figures and filecards are sometimes lost, along with the cover for the weapons armory.
The case originally shipped with the titles for 1982 G.I.Joe characters such as "Commando" and "Infantry Trooper." Some time later in 1983, some designations were changed to reflect the titles for 1983 characters.
The vehicle mold was repainted or retooled for the following vehicles:
This was the only usage of the Collector Display Case mold.

The only thing harder to keep track of than the 500+ G.I.Joe action figures released since 1982 are the many guns, backpacks, helmets, and knives that were included with the figures. With almost 1800 different G.I.Joe accessories, identifying them was once a long, arduous task. But not anymore.
