The above one is crazy because Cobra Commanders costume and the voices for CC and Destro......Destro sounds more like Cobra Commander than what we came to know of Destro. Does anyone have any info on these, the animation is great but I don't recall seeing any of these on TV as a kid.

I came across these purely by accident looking on youtube for something totally unrelated, but like I said I don't remember these commercials......were they added on one of the DVD releases, where they shown on TV in the states. The animation seems so much better than the show and the toy commercials

I don't remember ever seeing a cobra commander with yellow highlights on his uniform on any toy with the battlemask the Hood yes but never the battlemask hmm looks good though I also like how in a few of those commercials the joes were using M-16s never seen these before though not even on the internet or the VHS tapes I had as a kid

I remember seeing a few of them from around 84 and 85 back when I was 7. I primarily watched GIJOE on WGN or WKFT.

 

 

-Changed years back one, since I remember WKFT being the 'Counterforce' at the time

 

I remember seeing those on WGN as well.

Great stuff. It's almost hard to believe seeing a commercial for a Comic Book. Yet, there it is. (or was.)

Thanks SP.

This is why these commercials are strange to me, the animation is better than the standard toy commercials and apparently those first ones were before the 2 mini series cartoons. Happy to share these. The combination of all of those would make a decent DVD, I may download and combine them into a small 2 min movie or something.

I remember these fondly. They were adds for the G.I. Joe comic book. Amazingly enough, for a while they would release one of these a month to promote the new issue. Just think about that. Factoring in how long it takes to produce a comic book, then factor in the time it takes to produce an animated commercial, and get it on TV within the appropriate time frame; you get an idea what an undertaking these ads had to be.

 

Of course it was worth it, animation from most of the adds was then used in the Hasbro toy commercials.

I actually ran across somebody who had posted a compilation of all of the ones done for the comic book and downloaded it with Realplayer. So I have it on my pc. They went all the way up to about issue #80 or so. I forget all the ones they did. I also remember seeing them all on tv. The compilation ran about 11 minutes or so.
