    Heck yes! I had a HUGE collection of GI Joes. It was a constant battle with the cat, who often ate the little plastic laser weapons, rendering Hawk, Duke and the gang defenseless!

    I hope they don't mess up Snake Eyes, he was my favorite!

    There were the Big Joes and the little Joes.

    I had the big ones. My boys had the little ones. All of them.

    I had the first "talking Joe"...

    Man...I remember that like it was yesterday...

    Holy Cow! I didn't even know this was in the works. I had so many of those dang things when I was a kid.

    I had the big ones too. I had a few, some talked ("I need a medic over here!"), some didn't. If only I knew how much they'd be worth today, I wouldn't have played with them then. Who am I kidding, yes I would have.
