I was born in 1975-the first toy line I collected as a kid was Star Wars. This was followed by GoBots, He-man, Transformers, and GI JOE. Of all the toy lines, GI JOE was my favorite for several reasons. First, there is no other toy line that matches GI JOE when it comes to the sheer variety and number of different figures, vehicles, and playsets GI JOE had to offer. Secondly, the card back art, as well as the artwork on the boxes for the vehicles and playsets, remains in my opinion the absolute best, surpassing even the gorgeous MOTU artwork. In addition, GI JOE looks fantastic on display, whether it is loose or mint in box. Finally, of all the 80's cartoons, GI JOE was one of my favorites, and the comic book was even better than the show! I can't think of another toy line that had so many cool, awesome characters from both the good guy and bad guy line. I loved He-man as well, but the toyline which sticks out to me the most from my childhood, the one I still enjoy collecting, is and will always be GI JOE.
