My son would kill each and every one of you so that he could get the joes you may have taken off the pegs.
My kid yelled "stranger" at a guy to get away from him at Toys R Us so the guy wouldn't take the figures he was looking for.
My son is 6 and lives, eats, and breathes GI Joe.

I've never seen a kid carrying a joe out of the toy aisle. StarWars.. yes (especially with the cartoon now) Wrastli' toys, Baguman (sp?) and transformers.... yes! But the movie will bring intrest from the kids (no matter how much you hate the idea, the kids will want the movie figures)...There were no joe toys in the aisles a few months back not so much because everyone was buying them (they were) but mainly due to production issues that have been resolved as of (what?, wave 8) I agree that Joes will be around always in one form or another, but to keep going with the style and look we like right now, it "has" to be tied to the movie and hopefully a few sequals. If the movie is DOA and the toys fail the line will die with it, but then eventually there will be another Sigma 6, VvV ,or spytroops resurection that brings Joes back for another try. Joes will outlive us all (in one form or another).

I've seen parent's with their kids, looking at Joe's and the kid usually walks away, not interested and the parent tried to convice the kid that GI Joe is cool and that, that's what they had as kids(saw this 3 times in the last week). But it's off to Star Wars, Ben 10, Wrestling, or Power Ranger figures or to the video game section. Only reason my 2 sons play with Joe's is cuz I have them. I try to buy them for them when we go shopping, or b-days, X-mas and they want other stuf. If I didnt have them, they wouldn't be interested.

I see kids checking them out all the time, and buying them. My kids have their own Joes as well.

well this is weird but im 16(the age display on my account page is wrong) and i still get gi joes. even though i get them, ive almost never seen a kid 6-12 get them or any my age. every time i go to target, there is no one in the aisle. everyone is in the trading card, legos, and wrestling aisle. recently i saw a kid getting the rattler( the one thats out now) i saw him pick it up and leave. dont know i he purchased it or not, but at least he picked it up.the people on these posts are right. parents think anakins genocide of aliens or someone taking someones soul in yugioh is alright, but when you introduce a knife or gun to a toy its just wrong.i think if any figure is to be "not ok with parents" it should be the women wrestlers figures, the figures are half naked!

As far as the <parenting tangent> goes, what difference does it make if a kid is killing things on a video game, or blasting robots with light sabers? all they generally care about ( n i'm referring to my self here when i was joeing about in the yard) was good vs. evil, or in some cases airtight kicking everyones ass.
Although my son drives like death race all the time, an stole my night raven to have it be his big boss. all in all my kid likes joes, hes not coo coo for em but he plays with them, some of my ARAH's the ones that arent so good have beat up his spiderman afew times over.
i have only seen 2 kids buying new joes, one was getting the #21 CP snake eyes/storm shadow. the other bought the conquest x-30.
i can tell you that the isles are always naked in my area, north LA, Cali. so someone is buying it all ( which increase sales, thus providing hasbro with incentive to make ( or repaint) others).

I went into the toy aisle at target and this kid maybe 10-13 was right in front of the joes, it was mostly a revision case that was out, but it was one of the first I saw so I was excited, and he had a python trooper in his hands and wouldn't move and kept squeezing the bubble...I think he wanted to steal it, but I wasn't leaving so he dropped it and left.
