I liked the more outrageous characters that made the series rediculous.
such as Golobulous, Raptor, Dr. mindbender, Destro etc. and all of the mildly sci-fi troops. If I wanted regular army men, i would have just gotten army men, y'know.
The reason I like em now is because they are still so freaking cheesey.
Punk rock, Horror movies,Hasbro, and MY SENSE OF HUMOR ruined my life.
Wanted: Vintage Joes, Punk records and G1 Transformers.

My fave was always Cobra Commander on account of I never had him when I was a kid I had every joe from 1985-1990. Did not get the ealier ones at retail only at flea markets and toy trade shows. One day my dad found me a hooded CC figure from 1984 and surprised me with it that Sunday morning. Also found I think I recall a Imperial Stormtrooper as well. Thank God for these re-issues now I see Cobra Commander everywhere I go!

cool as a toy: flash, stalker, torpedo, snow job, wet-suit, lowlight, firefly
cool toys that were also characters I enjoyed in the cartoon: flint, spirit, dusty, destro, zartan, the twins
snake-eyes and storm shadow require no explanation.

The VAMP was one of the first JOE things I got back in '82 and I thought (and still do ) that it was just awesome. Clutch looked cooler than the regular Joes b/c of the brown vest, shoulder pads and chest holster - that and the fact that he looks like the OLD SCHOOL GI Joe like no other 3 3/4 figure ever made - he's a classic!
That and throw in he's attitude and character from the comics - come on, how could you not love this guy?
Not to mention the 25th version and 25th VAMP both ROCK!!

I lost my mind when I first saw the B.A.T. & they've been my favorite ever since. The black + orange, silver T visor, the lenticular chest piece & the different arm attachments just blew me away.

I've got several favorites. Why do I like them? I don't know.
The way they look?
Or the demeanor of the characters as they were revealed to me in the comic and/or the cartoon. I like several of them. No real favorite.
I can tell you who I DON'T like.
I do not like Cobra Commander, Crimson Twins, Billy and Zartan.
Never have, never will.

Yeah, I can see where you're coming from on your dislikes Sab. For some reason or another I just flat out don't like Snake Eyes which always seems to get me the "Are you sure you're a GI Joe fan?" reaction from other fans.

I loved Snake eyes when I was a young kid but as I got older i started to not like him. Right now he isn't a favorite of mine but I don't hate him.

As a kid I always liked Snake Eyes because he was a ninja in a black suit; I was huge into Martial Arts at the time and ninjas. I have an affinity towards the Python Patrol figures also, mainly because I missed out on all the troopers and they were my only way to get troopers, officers, vipers, crimson guards, etc. I like the color scheme too, not realistic, but it grew on me.
Funny this is too, as a kid I liked Serpentor when he first came out. That bada$$ snake suit and his chariot, he just seemed sweet. Now as an adult, after watching the old episodes and the movie, Cobra Commander is my favorite. I kinda felt for him after everybody in the organization that HE built tries to betray him; I guess I like rooting for the underdog.
Lastly, I like him now as much as I did back then...Alley Viper. Don't know why, funny orange and blue colors, unrealistic and all, he just looks awesome to me.

His personality in the early comics just made him that much better.
Looking for at reasonable prices:
25th Defense of Cobra Island 7-pack, PoC City Strike Destro, Ren Storm Shadow
