John Wayne in Sands of Iwo Jima
Golly-Gee, I would have loved this action figure when I was a kid. Who am I kidding? I'd still like to have this one. I remember as a kid being in a five & dime (what is now Gadsden Variety) downtown and seeing a Johnny West action figure for the first time. I at first mistook it for a John Wayne figure. His first name was John and he had some of The Duke's facial features...at least I thought so as a kid. It's the only reason I eventually asked for it...even though I didn't care to play with cowboy toys. My favorite toys as a kid were G.I. Joes. Why didn't Hasbro think about selling a John Wayne action figure in the day? They would have sold a ga-zillion of them. It would've been my most favorite toy of all.
