well i got mine when they first came out! i had rock n roll scarlet apc hal, flash, a vamp an a cobra trooper or officer , i have no clue which one, but lost him in a cedar creek in my town,(back then it was actually known as cedar creek or glen cedars, but only true townes ppl know that!) an he was gone in a stream of tea colored water an it got deep in that spot an couldnt swim yet, so he was gone an i was pissed my whole childhood years about that. he was the only one i ever owned, an when i seen the 25th version i was like im buyin a 100 of em..
i have know idea what one of these toys was actually first. but i remember lil before an during kindergarden i had those!! an they was my favorite thing besides heman.

I think my first Joe was Hawk w/ MMS. Sometime shortly thereafter I got Shortfuse, who taught me the fragility of the internal rubberbands. Next was Snake Eyes which I lost on a playground and replaced sometime after that. I also remember a Grunt in there somewhere. Grand Slam w/ Jump. Snow Job and the PBB, Torpedo. Skystriker w/ Ace and Mobat w/ Steeler for Christmas 1983 locked me into GI Joe for life.
I don't recall having any significant Cobra figures until Firefly and Scrap Iron. I believe I also got Storm Shadow and the hooded Cobra Commander, but FF and SI were my boys for life.
By mid '84 I was an addict...
