What would make this line blow up is giving kids a real good GI Joe cartoon based on the 25th line. Also not calling it the 25th anniversary line would help too. Start throwing in some new more modern looking vehicles and then some more advertising towards kids and that’s all you would need to get them excited just like we were 25 years ago.............and still are.
The cartoon would be the best help.

Considering today's kids are more drawn to video games, i'm quite impress that there are kid(s) that likes Joes.
Would anyone actually broadcast themselves if Youtube was available back in the 80's?

But back to what you were saying, as far as I know kids buying G.I. Joes is just a rumor. The kids in my city 90% of the time don't even look at G.I. Joes and when they do, they look at them in disgust.
I've never seen a kid outside of my family,touch or buy a G.I. Joe, not once.
My little brother is a perfect example of this, if my mom let him, he wouldn't do anything but play video games and watch tv.
It's hilarious, my mom will be like "okay take a break from the video game" and my brother says "oh alright...I guess I'll play action figures... oh man". IT KILLS ME! All I want to do is play action figures!
Oh and that's a good question about youtube, I think they would.

my son is 8, and his obsession with GI Joe is what rekindled my interest in them.

...because you touch yourself at night. (Holy crap that actually makes sense in this context. :O)
He's not a kid, really. He looks like he's about 12-14, and he is clearly a collector as well. I mean come on, he has 61 video reviews about toys, and did you see the display behind him in the Beachhead review? He has a TON of stuff back there. So its a pretty fair assumption to say he's not buying these to pewpewpew, (Or maybe he does both... playing with toys is fun at any age!) but is still unfortunately for him at the whims of his parents to actually hunt. Poor guy.
I'll sing my song to the wide open spaces
I'll sing my heart out to the infinite sea
I'll sing my visions to the sky high mountains
I'll sing my song to the free, to the free

That kid looks like he doesn't shower.
So hes right on track to collect toys.
