Army GEAR

Army GEAR was a neat and short-lived toy line produced by Galoob in 1988 that combined the ideas of a small playset with military toys. Each play set consisted of an actual army item (such as an M-16, compass, or canteen) and would open up to feature a warzone play set with accompanying soldiers and vehicles. The largest set folded into an aircraft carrier.

There were fifteen different sets in the Army Gear range:

An Auto Pistol with Missile Staging Base
Watch with a Missile Post
Binoculars with Laser Tracking Station
Canteen with Aircraft Carrier
Walkie Talkie with Drone Launching Base
Combat Medals with Assault Vehicles
Combat Ready Accessory Set
Searchlight and Air Defense Station
Combat Troops
Compass and Satellite Station
Pistol and Missile Silo
Grenade and Bunker
Machette and Observation Post
M-16 and Weapons Arsenal

The Army GEAR boxes looked like real wooden boxes thanks to the clever packaging and you could lift the flap at the front of the box to peek inside.
