Hasbro W.W.II US Radio

I know when you saw Hasbro you probably cringed. LOL I got the latest Hasbro figure John R. Fox MOH Recipient he came with a pretty good model of a W.W.II US Radio. I'm not too sure what type it is but it looks good to me. It also came with a cloth carrying pack as well. LMK what you guys think?

It looks like the BC-659 VEHICLE radio that Bean was producing! God help the poor soul that is to carry that on his back! It looks pretty good actually, other than the handset that is not correct.

Wanted to add that it looks pretty good indeed for a Hasbro incarnation. I think a little weathering work and maybe some small upgrades could make it look pretty sharp.

That is a multiple buy for me. I have two of BEan's versions and they are great. I would like a couple more for a commo center, that I want to build.

Thanks guys, Wow I guess Hasbro has their moments. LOL I'll have to see if I can find more myself with a little work I'm sure these can look great. I might try to make a mold of it.

Hey i would hate to have to carry that! It was bad enough to carry 2 PRC 77's when my unit was being evaluated by the 4th I.D.! Kevin

Hasbro can have some nice gems on occasion. Mainly because they will often do something that other companies haven't. Shame that it seems they are getting out of 1/6.

I found it at the TRU in Woburn, MA, the box was torn but I knew these would be HTF because they were released after Hasbro broke the news they were dumping G.I.Joe. I have almost all the MOH Hasbro figures and I couldn't let this one pass.
