It was for me. I'm not sure why but for some reason that was the only year I had figures from until I rediscovered them while Christmas shopping for my son (Ninja Battles set and 12" talking Duke). I guess I was at the age of transition from toys to girls and other endeavors.

Why wasn't 1986 a choice. Did it not really happen? Was I dreaming and I was never 12 years old and the years jumped from 1985 to 1987?
Personally, I thought 1986 was the best.

2009- Channing Tatum ! WORD...NOT!!!!!!!
I would say 82-27 was the best PERIOD! Not only did we have joes , Garbage pail kids,Virginities,and VHS or beta was a great debate! And we were given the gift of gaming systems! well aside from previous years having an atari or calico ... we received Nintendo and the cool short circuit robot! and that orange gat!

For me personally it would have to be '85 and '86, these were pivotal years in G.I.Joe history, lots of major characters were introduced, the daily cartoon had just started and was the talk of the school playground the next day. Star Wars toys by this time were long forgotten and it was on to he next thing which if you were a kid in the 80's there were lots of toys lines to choose from that it must've been a nightmare for parents bank accounts.
In 1986 I also discovered the Marvel Joe comic and was shocked the characters could die which was never seen in the cartoon, especially shocking was Storm Shadow getting shot but miraculously coming back, funny enough his action figure was still being sold in 1986 so I thought it was a given that he would be resurrected.

I'm only looking at ARAH years because to me the ME figures constitute a seperate (superior) line.
So having said that, 1985 clearly was the best. Introduction of so many key characters such as Flint, Dusty, CG, Eels, etc along with epic vehicles like the Flagg and the Mauler. 1985 was the last really military year before they started getting a little wonky with stuff like Serpentor, Mindbender, the Stun, etc.
