Iím writing this because Iím just wondering if anybody else had this happen to them. Picture it Christmas 1982, and topping most kids want list is GI Joe. I really wanted the Mobat Tank and I believe that was all I asked for. Anyway, Christmas morning I did not get the Mobat, but I did get the Ram, Rock n Roll, and Breaker. Then I got Remco's Sgt. Rockís Jeep and a Raft with figures, and I was thinking to myself what the heck is this crap? I guess my parents thought the Sgt. Rock toys were GI Joe. But I wasnít totally disappointed, because I did get some GI Joes. Also, the Sgt. Rock raft was pretty cool and GI Joe did not have one until a few years later with the Cobra Night Landing. I just remember how cheap those Sgt. Rock figures were with short arms and all. A similar thing happened two years earlier when I asked for Star Wars toys and ended up with some Tonka trucks, and a Mork from Ork doll. But what the heck I know some kids didn't get anything, and I was happy to get some stuff no matter what kind of toys they were. Anyway, I finally did get the Mobat I always wanted, only it was just a couple years ago on ebay.

My mom was always good at getting GI Joe stuff for me. It is probably because i bugged her every day and circled everything GI Joe in the christmas catalog. Either way, i always got GI Joe for christmas and Birthdays...

I had a bunch of Sgt Rock stuff and loved it. I thought they fit fine in my Joeverse as a little guy.

I didn't like sgt.rock either. It's like todays corps action figures. People think because there are no Joes so why not get the corps its the same thing....NOT!!!

I used some of the bad guys from Sgt. Rock with my Joes, as Cobras...The other good guys were just victims for Cobra that the Joes would try to save.

Some of the vehicles and accessories from Sgt Rock were alright, but I remember how easily the figures fell apart. I did like the little plastic machine gun emplacements and such, though.

My mom being a passionate Barbie collector understood that KOs were never good enough when it came to toys.

I had something similar happen in the 90's with Star Wars. All I wanted was Boba Fett's Slave 1. Come X-mas time I got Dash Rendar's vehicle and a Boba Fett figure (I already had Boba Fett) The sad part? My dad was the one that got me into Star Wars in the first place
