The Bridge Layer was so specialized/unusual that it wasn’t till a year after it came out and it was on sale that it finally entered my collection. It was an interesting toy that was a lot of fun if you had a yard filled with artificial buttes and mesas. Which of course every suburban New Jersey child did. The commercial also introduces Barbecue and Shipwreck. BBQ was a pretty cool addition to the Joes. Since he was completely covered, we gave him a sword and pretended he was another ninja. Shipwreck? Well he watched the based while the other Joes did their missions.
