1986 Leatherneck - Around The Web

1986 introduced even more new characters who featured redundant specialties of the earlier Joe team.  Leatherneck was the new marine, meant as a supplement/enhancement/replacement for Gung Ho.  Quickly, though, Leatherneck began to stand on his own.  He retained some of the gruff characteristics of a marine.  But, the figure and his gear were different enough make him unique from Gung Ho.  Here's the best of his original paint job from around the web.

  1. The ultimate generic Joe. Makes Crankcase look like a well-coordinated fashionista. Up there with Rumbler, Armadillo and Wild Card. The tan version is slightly more interesting, but this one is just lame.
