Cobra Island Flashback Friday – 1992 Hasbro UK Woolworths Exclusive G.I.Joe 3 Pack

For this edition of #FlashbackFriday, we’re taking a look at quite the rarity – a Hasbro UK Woolworths Exclusive G.I.Joe 3 Pack. Thanks to Mr. Gary Atkinson and by extension, the G.I.Joe Green Shirts Group on Facebook, we get to take a look at one of these incredible sets that was only available at Woolworths in the U.K. in 1992. There were 3 different packs available, with some fun artwork to boot! This particular offering included the G.I.Joe team members Bullhorn and Pathfinder alongside a Cobra Night Creeper. Check it out – 

What’s interesting is the set features unique art work; Note the absence of individual file cards on the back. Instead, the characters that were chosen to be included in each set can be seen on the reverse of the card back in action poses, alongside the promotional roster of other G.I.Joe and Cobra offerings available. Also fun to note is that on the front of the card, buyers are informed that if they buy 2 figures, they’ll get one free! All for the low, low price of  $6.98 british pounds, or $9.62 USD. 

We can’t thank Gary enough for providing us the opportunity to share this Oldskoolnostalgia Classic with you. What are your thoughts on this Woolworths Exclusive G.I.Joe 3 Pack? Sound off after the break on the Cobra Island Forums!
