I totally don't believe the part about him having kids.
Is it true?!
Those aren't GI Joes, they're GI Dwarves(no offence to little people or Snow White's troop). Real GI Joes are 3 times as long as your______ & often have life-like hair, a beard & Kung Fu grip.
What is funny is all the congrats he is getting!
That GI Joe collection sucks! I have the "Negro adventurer" He was cool as hell. He looked like O.J. Simpson with a little pink scar on his cheek.
Want to know what is even funnier? The fact that syciprider was surfing ebay for GI Joes.
And the leather gloves...
I found them while searching for giant Japanese robot toys...
i loved the 12" tall GI Joes from the 60s and 70s. These seem insubstantial.
A few years back i was doing advertising for Hasbro. Went into their company store and found an entire aisle of GI Joe (selling below wholesale).
I bought a whole bunch of stuff just for the mad joy of it (as a kid I was pretty poor and would have to pick just one small item).
Brought it home and packed it away. But for a moment I was six years old and in GI Joe heaven.
one of my clearest memories of kindergarten was the day when i got the "junkyard dog" gi joe the morning before school. the entire day, i just couldn't wait until i got back home so i could play with it.
also around this time, there was this janet jackson song (i think) called "the best things in life are free." i couldn't comprehend it at the time--my reaction was, "g.i. joe's aren't free!"
My parents had a craft business when I was a kid and my sister and I would go to trade shows with them. One year when I was around 10, we were at the show and hanging out at the venue the day before the show when a friend of my dad's asked me if I wanted to help set up a toy display. The guy had one or a few of every piece of the 1985 GI Joe line that Hasbro was making that year and I got to unbox every one of those suckers and play with them all afternoon while setting the stuff up. One of the best days of 1985 for me.
30 grand, sheeesh
Those were the GI Joes I grew up with. I wonder how hard it is to find Shipwreck with his parrot. Polly was it? How original.
Now that I'm a bit older I'm a little disturbed that I once played with a toy that is nothing but a glorified version of the Village People
