One of the things my daughter is constantly calling my Joes is "Man Dolls." I could almost go with that, but due to the amount of female collectors (and she likes them, too) I've come across... that's not completely accurate.
They are action figures. Dolls are pretty and lacey and have tea and drive pink corvettes and have friends named Stacey and have little cute dogs and smell like strawberries. Some of them ride Battle Cats (Just kidding! I have some of those, too.).

I am so glad to hear that Zoltron plays with Joes. That makes the pics I'm gonna post later today make more since now that I know others do what I do. My wife will be gone tomorrow and my kids will be at school and in off of work for the week, so I'm playing with some Joes tomorrow. It's funny becaus I see all this new, cool stuff coming out and I think, "Wow! If only they'd had made that when I was a kid!". But I'll be 34 on Thursday and I can do what I want an I say it's never to late to play GI Joe (as long as I get the dishes done).

I call 'em action figures, my wife calls them dolls.
I went with both.

I still say the big ones are dolls. If they are soft and squeezable, they are dolls. If they are full articulate and hard plastic, they are action figures.

Dolls are things you dress up, action figures are things that play with.
Dolls just stand there and look "pretty", action figures just stand there and look like they'd kick your ass if you called 'em dolls.

I know most people think this is subjective, but I say they are action figures.
Joes have numerous joints for much more interactive play than 90% of the dolls on the market.
Joes are designed to be posed as realisticaly as possable so you can have them punch, kick, drive tanks etc. Joe's are also made to be posed as realisticaly as possable in "action poses". Example: running, shooting, throughing grenades etc.
Barbie has only 3 joints (neck, shoulder & thigh) on the vast majority of her "Dolls". Barbie has exaggerated hair and leg length so she will look good posed in her various dresses etc.
Barbie has VERY little "action poses" you can put her in. (lets keep it mature here guys) Barbie is marketed more for the numerous outfits you can buy and put on her.
GI JOE may have many outfits (in the 12inch line) but his emphasis is more the "action poses" you can do with him.
PLease! I need your help to find; LOOSE:
1. Comic Pack October Guard Figures.
2. 1987 Cobra Maggot
3. Cobra Adder
4. Cobra Imp
5. Cobra Bunker parts or complete
6. Cobra Rifle Range parts or complete
7. Loose Pit Commandos, complete or not
8. Loose 25th greenshirts, complete or not
