You know, like the 80s GI JOE, with Cobra Commander and Destro and the Baroness. Check out [url]www.gijoe.com[/url]. Here's a bit with Snakeyes doing a little of the one handed MG44 action: [img]http://www.gijoe.com/common/images/products/53228_imageMain400.jpg[/img] Also, reruns of the 80s series are going to be back on the cartoon network starting this Tuesday at 12:30AM. I loved this crap when I was a kid.

My son loves the GI Joe toys...I only regret that I can't yet seem to get him interested in the Ultimate Soldier figures.

Damn, i still have all my GI Joe stuff! I can't wait to have kids (hopefully one boy) to pull the boxes out and play joe again!

It wasn't that I minded (I did) that NOBODY ever got killed. It was, that, in 30 seconds of combat they destroyed about $2 Billion worth of hardware. F14s went down by the dozen, tanks went up like pintos. SOMEBODY was picking up the bill for all that action.

Oh my God, I loved that show when I was a kid. I'm glad Cartoon Network is picking it up. I actually bought 'GI Joe: The Movie' on DVD just for the nostalgia. :)

I've been waiting for a post like this. Early '80s my brothers had all the Joe stuff you could get, I was a little to old. Fact is they never stopped makeing them, so there not back. A couple of years ago some popped up in Odd-Lots(Big-Lots in some places). Got me interested. I looked up all I could on net.(ain't it great). Seen the stuff my brothers had is worth a fortune. Too bad my mom loves haveing yard sells, it's all gone. Point is I started collecting new ones, thought it would be fun. It was. Me and one of my brothers and a few guys from work really got into it. I have all of 2000 and 2001 guys and vehicles. Started on 2002 but they totally changed figures, the ones you have pictured. They SUCK! Like new Coke. I stopped. Joe collecting is a big thing, just like this place and AR-15s. Thats why most people think they stopped makeing them because collecters hoard them up. Part of the fun checking all over town to find that 1 guy. I've went on long enough, sorry. If anyone out there collects or has any interest in Joes contact me. I have lots of info and as you can see I like to talk. I got a tip on some repaints that come out this year, hard to find. I'm going to go post a new topic to see if I can get some help, wouldn't mind getting them.

You guys are young. The real G.I. Joe was Barbies heighth and went from having painted hair to real life afros and beards with kung fu grip. Now the Ultimate soldiers look really cool. When I was a kid the hot show was the Thunderbirds. Go puppet dudes...heh

[b]Akintude[/b], sorry about the 'go', it has been a while since I have seen it. I still get strange looks when I use the 'and knowing is half the battle' line. Maybe people will understand me now...well, probably not.[%|] ByteTheBullet (-:
