To commemorate the GI Joe A Real American Hero 30th Anniversary, HissTank boards member vallen has shared not only a commercial but a recreation of the 1982 catalog, with a mix of 25th and 30th anniversary Modern Era GI Joe toys. While GI Joe has gone through several incarnations throughout the years, a major shift occurred in 1982 when Hasbro made GI Joe in 3.75″ scale. The legacy of this scale is reflected in action figure brands even beyond GI Joe, as it has been a staple in action figure aisles for several years. Fitting for a brand that was just recently voted as the favorite toy of the past century.
The commercial can be seen below:
