My uncle who is 10 yrs older then me grew up with the old ass G.I. Joe, 12" kung fu grip etc etc.....when I was growing up all I heard was "what the hell is a Cobra??...why are these guys so small?, this isnt G.I. Joe!"....to which I replied "No, you had 1 guy that fought a cave man and rescued animals...this is G.I. Joe"...thats when he said "but which one is Joe?"....Ok he didnt get it in the 80's and just now seeing my 25th collection he is starting to understand at this point...and even see how cool they are now.
Does anyone have an older friend, or relative who was a fan of the old stuff and doesnt "get" Hasbro/Sunbow/Marvel G.I. Joe??

Which is funny because I'm sure many similar examples of the "this isn't Joe" things he said can be found lurking around here.

After 5 Joecons under my belt. Ive hung out with plenty of Adventure team fans (both young and old), and there a cool lot.

Adventure team what? Apprantley I don't even know what an Adventure team is....unless it's Venture Bros?....oh well not much they can give me crap about then....since I don't even register them as something I remotely care about....

I am an adventure team fan. I love the classic 12'' and 8'' super-joes. my favorite is the 3 3/4 line but there is a love for the original Joe himself.
When I'm through, they'll scrape you off the wall with a squeegee!
