Deep Sea Diving G.I. Joe is also Slow As Death G.I. Joe

February 9, 2013


Really, how much G.I. Joeing can you do when you’re stuffed inside a deep sea diving outfit? It’s a tad constricting. And why is the deep sea gear “On sea” while the dude on the sled is “Underwater, too!”? Are a lot of sailors manning the conn in outfits like that?

Glass-eating, tough-as-nails Green Beret G.I. Joe is not amused.

And is that a sledgehammer he’s holding? Is there much call for a sledgehammer when you’re underwater? I’M SO BEWILDERED. YO JOE.

    I had the Deep Sea Diver Joe when I was a kid. Seems like there was buried treasure and an octopus involved. It also had one of those squeeze pump gizmos attached to the helmet where you could pump in real air bubbles. Not a lot of fun compared to the Secrets of the Mummy’s Tomb set.

    I had one too! The one problem was you had to blow into a tube attached to the costume to fill it with air to get it to rise. So that meant playing in the bathtub preferably without bubble bath which smells nice but doesn’t taste so good.

      Both your comments have infused more life into this product than the ad ever could have. And for baths, too.
