Since 82 and I saw the first toy commercial, after Challenge of the super friends it showed the new Joes and at the end of the commercial, they had them in this brady bunch box, man it was cool, anyone know where you can look at old toy commercials for them. First Joe was Short-Fuze, then Clutch w/ Vamp.
Im Going Nomad.

Since 82, I was 9. Started with Snake Eyes, Stalker, and Breaker. First Vehicle was the VAMP. Had the GI Joe HQ and Terror Dome, I even had the shuttle Defiant and launch complex. Thanks Mom and Dad I think when the GI Joe animated movie came out I was in a decline in the collecting. I think that's is when the toy line started to look bad. Cobra La, crystal ball, and the aliens in there space line, just awful. Had a huge collection up to the late 90's and sold almost all the of them, probably 95%. Should of sold them in the mid 90's, would of made a killing. Started recollecting in 2000.
I really like the look, articulation, and the height difference of the new figures vs the old ones; but there is a few they got wrong in the new line. Example The old 1st Ace looks way better then the new flight suit one. I remember using him as a space man and that is what his suit was for, high altitude. The new one looks more like a wet suit, then a flight suit. (See Image). ;)

Since the get go. My first fig was a straight arm Grunt. I retired from the figures after it became pure repaints, ninjas, and space monsters. I still went around and would buy back issues of comics or any videos that I could snag. It warmed the heart went 25th came back around and renewed my faith in the world.
