The line has come a long way since then.
I still maintain these figures look the way I remember them looking in my childhood, not how they actually looked, but how I thought of them in my mind. These toys gave me what I wanted. Nice.
And ya'll are right, the I would have expected this to be a longer thread.

Seems like the 'Tank really took off after these came out. I was only vaguely aware of it prior to the 25th line coming out.
It probably would have been a longer thread, but most GI Joe collectors at the time were on other forums. I suspect the vast majority of posters here came onboard after the 25th line came out.
I remember seeing these pics on TNI and Yojoe. There was a lot of excitement over them. A fair bit of controversy, too, since EVERYONE at the time was an "o-ring collector". You got the odd "I'm boycotting everything made by Hasbro" post, much like today with the movie stuff. Heh, everything's cyclical...
I remember clamoring for them. They weren't released in Canada (except specialty shops). I think I paid quite a lot for the Joe set at a specialty toy store in Victoria, just so I could "have it now". Got a couple Cobra ones at a pretty decent price on Ebay shortly after. Remember everyone thinking (even Hasbro) that there was was only going to be 25 figures total? lol...

this is a classic. vintage 2007 when we were happy to just be getting 25 figures total instead of crying that Hasbro hasn't given us a Airtight or Zarana yet. I still remember that feeling of finding the 25th figures in the wild for the first time. I immediately felt like a kid again and you can't bottle that feeling.

Great thread!!! I bet even Hasbro had no idea this line was going to take off the way it did. I remember buying all the single pack cobra troopers. Love it.
