36. Seems like I've had G.I. Joes for forever, My older brother and I played with the 12" guys back in the 70's. Still remember the excitement I felt when I saw that first TV commercial when they rattled off the code names of the original Joes,...and the frustration when my brother would turn the channel every time on purpose. What a jerk!
Went to Fleet Farm that same week with my Grandma and picked up Stalker, Grunt, the FLAK cannon, and the Cobra trooper and officer. When Cobra Commander came out I got Snake Eyes to keep the sides even. lol My neighbor had the VAMP, Rock n Roll, Scarlet and the Sears exclusive Cobra base. Things were pretty simple and fun back then when Cobra Commander ruled from my Death Star play set and commanded stormtroopers as well.
So, a little part of the that old magic was back that night when I wandered into Target last Fall and spotted the first two anniversary 5 packs. I pretty much ran out of the store that night only to give into the inevitable and return the next night to buy them both...
...so yeah, blah, blah, blah, I'm 36, and just a tad nostalgic.

I am 26, turning 27 this year, but act more like a teenager
My brothers bought GI Joes for me when I was about 4 years old.

So, I've seen a 16 yo and a 72 yo on the boards. I might have missed some that are older or younger. Are these the extremes of age?

Im 35 going on 10 again....On one hand I feel pathetic, but on the other hand, my inner child is happy.
I had every toy during the 80's, sure wish i had the pit still.
