    Is it true?!
     
  4. 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.

    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.

  10. Want to know what is even funnier? The fact that syciprider was surfing ebay for GI Joes.

    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
