GI Joe Tunnel Rat Figure

GI Joe Tunnel Rat

Tunnel Rat was part of the 1987 GI Joe Real American Hero toy line up of Hasbro. He had the designation of being the EOD (Explosive Ordinance Disposal) of the GI Joe team. Makes me wonder however why he seems to be equipped to install bombs rather than to dispose of them *snicker*

My friend, who taught me how to repair broken GI Joe figures told me that he liked to swap the parts of GI Joe figures in order to build even cooler looking ones. So what I did before was to swap the feet of Bazooka with Tunnel Rat to make Tunnel Rat more cooler. Of course now I put them back to the way they should be... hehehe

Large Back Pack that came with Tunnel Rat. Because of its size Tunnel Rat could easily toppel over.

Tunnel Rat figure also came with 2 flash lights that could be mounted on the top of the back pack. It usually comes off easily to I did the same technique that I use to prevent a GI Joe back pack from easily falling off

Machine gun that came with Tunnel Rat. Not sure if this is an M-60 or its big brother, a WWII German MG-42. I find it silly that a Night scope is attached to the machine gun but after googling a bit I saw that some machine guns could indeed be fitted with a night scope.
