The German Soldier was initially to be called the German Stormtrooper, though that name was decided to be too controversial. Occasionally packaging with the 'stormtrooper' title is found and brings premium prices from collectors. The set was available in a deluxe window box (8100) and as a narrow figure box (8200) and a carded set of accessories (8300).
Note the standard rather than the foreign head on the figure in the narrow box right. Hasbro used standard Joes sometimes early in the run before the full stock of foreign heads was available. Images above and right copyright and courtesy of Vectis Auctions
