The cobra terrordrome was my favorite joe playset. However, I think castle grayskull has been taken over by cobra the most.

The Terror Drome is my favorite playset but my favorite vehicle changes from time to time, right now it's the Hydrofoil.

For durability, the 83 APC (my kids still play with mine everyday)

Coolest toy during the 5 minutes it took me to break it, the Cobra Glider

Well, i've not seen a playset yet that beats the great outdoors, so no opine there.

As for best vehicle, Tomahawk, easily. Even with the advent of true 1:18 scale the Tomahawk still has a place of honor.

Because no Cobra force is complete without a super laser! (Sticking Joes in the trash compactor is pretty sweet too.)

I gotta agree with Konigstiger though. I made some pretty sweet Cobra temples and Joe bases in the sandbox back in the day.

My favorite playset was the U.S.S. Flagg
My favorite vehicle was the Cobra Moray Hydrofoil and its attacks on the Flagg.

That was my first vehicle, mine didn't last long either.

I never had one but I did pour starter fluid on a skystriker, set it on fire and tossed it off the roof once. We held a funeral for what was left of ACE a short time later. I kind of wonder if his charred remains are still buried that backyard.

For me it's a tie between my Defiant Space Shuttle Complex, and my General Rolling Command Base, both have all the battle action you could ask for, and both were bought by my Grandmother ( She may be gone, but every Joe toy she ever gave me I still own).

Terror Drome, but I did make a nifty base with traps doors, breakaway walls and slides and stuff out of a cardboard box and tubes one day, that was alot of fun I remember.

My favorite vehicle is the Cobra Hydrofoil. I really love the snake design on the side of the boat.

Playset would have to be the 1983 Headquarters.

The mamba is just awesome.

Mamba doesn't get enough love. The few friends I have that actually like GI Joe and know what they're looking at all hate the Mamba, I don't get it.

My Favorites were.
U.S.S. Flagg
Tomahawk
A.W.E. Striker
Dragonfly
Mauler
A.P.C.
Skystriker
Hovercraft
Night Raven

Couldn't just pick one. But the Flagg is the best hands down.

Well... I had the Defiant... I absolutely loved that beast... Also had the Mobile Command Center it was sweet too.. funny thing is I played the most with the small vehicles and playsets like the Checkpoint Alpha etc.. I loved them the most I think.. all the small playsets.

I remember playing with the Rolling Thunder a heck of a lot too though. Something about those missiles I just loved.

My favorite playset was the Tactical Battle Platform. It was the only one I had. As for vehicles the Night Raven was tops. I got a huge kick out the detachable drone and the drop down cockpit. I'm not too excited about the remake. It's missing one of the best parts.

Best Playset was the backyard, but if I was indoors, it was the tactical battle platform. Favorite vehicles were sneakers, but I always loved the A.W.E Strikers.

Mine would have to be the terror drome..I just loved that thing. If I had a second on things I have owned it would be a flagg(of course) or a rolling thunder.

THe original Joe HQ, the Terrordrome, the Tactical Battle Platform, and the early 90's HQ were all kickass.

Favorite (and only) Playset: TACTICAL BATTLE PLATFORM
Favorite Vehicle: TOMAHAWK HELICOPTER

The only thing that sucked was that I could never get the Tomahawk to fit on the helicopter pad of the battle platform.

TTBP was the only official playset I had when i was a kid. Had a lot of fun w/ it.
More often I used our living room sofa as a battlefield. The cracks between the seat cushions were trenches. The seat pillows on the ends were hills and caves. The M.O. for both Cobra and G.I. Joe was to cross the expanse of seat cushion and wipe out the other side and capture the leader. This was deadly because of the trenches and both sides sustained heavy losses. When all the ammunition was used up both sides would meet up and fight it out hand to hand combat style. They would box, do karate and WWF wrestling and the only way to kill the opponent was to do a Piledriver or a move I made up call the Atomic Crunch.

Fav vehicle, tha Vamp, fav playset, my blankets that I would use to make a cave, or some cardboard box I used as a base. My parents didnt have much money then, thats probably why I have so many Joes now, trust me there are more in my storage than in my album, which I will update by next week.
