View Master Reels
In 1972, GAF produced 3 View Master reels featuring the adventures of the GI Joe Adventure Team. This fuelled my love for the Adventure Team more than anything I had. Here they were in color, in 3D, in lavish settings, setting wrong right using the gear I had in my own toy box.
I got my set of reels individually. I bought two in separate lots on eBay, and a third was provided for me by a Sandboxer, Jack Hall as an extra to a trade we did. Wow!
So keep in mind that not all of these reels are mint. There are flaws, dirt, scratches, and other problems, but in general, these came out great!
Thanks to fellow Joe enthusiasts Eric Bergstrom, who volunteered to professionally scan the reel images, and Peter Marinow, who volunteered his copy of the paper documentation for scanning, and Mike Staton who provided the raw audio files (NEW!), I now present:

This took some effort. Coming as it did from a talking View Master, the quality of the original files was pretty low. After playing with them for a couple of hours they are now quite presentable. Enjoy! Either click on the reels below, or go up and visit the reel picture pages and play them from there. Listen to the audio while seeing the pictures!
