CHiPs - California Highway Patrol (CHP)

Remember CHiPs, the TV series starring Erik Estrada as CHP Officer Francis ('Frank') "Ponch" Poncherello and Larry Wilcox as his strait-laced partner, Officer Jon Baker?

Takara produced this Combat Joe CHP back in the 80s. At that time, the CHP uniform was one of the best outfits. Along with the pants, shirt with CHP badge and a white sleeveless undershirt, Combat Joe had a crash helmet, sunglasses, and black rubber riding boots.

The accessories were stunning too - the gunbelt had the holster for the officer’s revolver, an ammo case for two quick-reloads of bullets, a case for his handcuffs, a loop ring for his baton, and all the gear needed to fill these.
