Gotta love the original years. I actually even liked the later years except all the dang rocket missiles firing pieces. The figures were really cool I thought but the oversized crap and all of them having rocket firing stuff was way over board. I also remember when they had some that had backpacks that were permanently attached to them that made sound, the size of the pack to the figure would crush a normal person in a real scenario. I think those were the worst figures I ever had of gi joe stuff.

Those later electronic backpacks & rocket launchers did reach loony-tune proportions Laughing It was the neon colours that put me off, it all got way too cartoon like for me.. there were some superb figure designs, in the early 90's, with great sculpting detail that were totally ruined by poor colour choices.

I really do like these 30th Salute figures as they're a nice no to the past..


Plus I think it's kind of ironic that Hasbro finished the G.I.Joe line opposite to how Palitoy started their Action Force range... i.e. scaled down versions of larger figures.
