Toyfare Top 20 Joes of all time


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I picked up the new issue of Toyfare today and inside they rank what they think is the top 20 Joes. The list includes vehicles and playsets not just individual figures. I think its pretty good.


20- Mauler with Heavy metal

19-Steel Brigade (as a promotion it was great)

18-Cobra Commander (battle corps, 1983)

17-Cobra Wolf with Ice Viper

16-Flash (1983)

15-Snow Serpent (1985)

14-Hiss tank with Hiss Driver(1983)

13-GI Joe headquarters command center (1983)

12-Stinger (1984)

11-Storm Shadow(1984) the original

10-Moray hydrofoil with lampreys (1985)

9- Crimson Guard (1985)

8- Tomahawk with lift ticket (1986)

7- Zartan with chameleon swamp skier (1984)

6- Whale hovercraft with Cutter (1984) :D (sorry I'm partial to cutter cause I'm in the Coast Guard)

5- Rattler with wild weasel (1984)

4-USS Flagg with Keel Haul

3-Snake-eyes with Timber(1985)

2- Defiant space vehicle complex with payload and hardtop (1987)

i find it kinda odd that zartan is #7 yet when they did the top 20 toys of all time a year or two ago he was in the top 5(he was also the only joe figure mentioned in the list)


Yea I do remember that issue. That's a good point. I also picked up the new Toy Fare and it is an awesome book whih i worth buying. I do agree with "The Terrordrome" being #1. I will one day have one of them.

While I don't think they should have mixed figures and vehicles, the list is pretty good. The only two I really don't get are Flash and the Stinger. Of the original 13 Joes, Flash was neat, but not as significant or cool as other figures that were released at the same time. The Stinger suffers from the same problem. While it is cool in its own right, I don't think you'd find too many people who would rank it above the HISS Tank.


Overall, though, it seems they covered the major players in both figures and vehicles.

I love the stinger... Definately one of my favorite cobra vehicles of all time, and MAYBE more than the Hiss... I would have to think about that one.


I just dont understand defiant being ranked higher than the flagg... I guess it was a bit more in depth than the flagg.. but the flagg man COME ON!!! :)
