Astro Joe

This is the GI Joe Special Mission set space capsule.

Nicely marked with United States and flag.

This is the FAO Swartz special edition Friendship 7.

Essentially the same space capsule but in more authentic Mercury series markings and weathering.

The gray one comes with astronaut in space suit, raft, and extra white uniform and some little accessories. The Friendship 7 comes with a Black astronaut in space suit. Not sure by a Black guy since none of the Mercury astronauts were Black and John Glenn the only pilot of Friendship 7 was white. Still, a great couple of sets.
