I hope they make more commercials because it was really cool. The cartoon series had NOTHING on these graphics!!!

Snakeyes and StormShadow looked so AWESOME!!!
For Cobra they went to the old version...it looks sweet. You know the carpet head one:)

Heavy-Duty. Him and SnakeEyes were the ones I like the most. Was that supposed to be a movie they were advertising for?

I was a huge GI Joe fan, I had hundreds of toys!!! Of course, I'm old enough that I was at the "target age" for the show back in the late 80's. My favorite characters were Deep Six, Wild Bill, Barbecue, Flint, Roadblock, Mutt & junkyard, The Xiamat Twins, Zartan & the Dreadnaughts and of course Sgt. Slaughter! Man those were the days!!! Yo Joe!!!! :D

You canadians from canadia and you eastern europeans. G.I. Joe was one of those things that was an okay toy idea. But due to good marketing in the early era of t.v. marketing it quickly took off to spin off merchandise from the action figure. I especially liked the t.v. shows. I think that was the original action figure also. In america at least.

For the record, Storm Shadow was a good guy whose family was killed by someone affiliated w/ Cobra (not sure who). He joined Cobra to find and kill that person, but couldn't. So, he joined Joe to try a different approach. Later, he rejoined Cobra for unkown reasons (possible mind control by Cobra Commander).

At least that's what I remeber and have been told by friends who are a little older and remember better.

I could've sworn that Storm Shadow started as Cobra and later found out the truth of his parents (Being murdered by Cobra) and left Cobra for GI Joe, and I'm 24, that was my show! I could be wrong though :(

Don't be sad, I'm not really sure about my story.. it's what one of my friends (25 yrs old)told me (21 yrs old).
