G.I. JOE: A Real American Hero
G.I. Joes were the ultimate boy’s toy during our “kidswereus” days. This was the male-version of Barbie Dolls (alas! A male’s excuse to play with a doll, hehe!). These military-themed action figures were really fun to play with since they had movable joints, not to mention the ultra-cool weapons and military vehicles that came with it.
The heroes had a ruthless adversary to deal with, the COBRA terrorist group which was hell-bent on ruling the world. Aside from the action-figures, G.I. Joe also had a magazine, cartoon series, and a movie.
