GI JOE Series 1 Toy Action Figures 1982
In 1982, Hasbro reintroduced G.I. Joe to the toy world, and things would never be the same. The first initial group of GI Joes are known as the "Straight Arm" series, as they only have two points of articulation at the should and the elbow, where later series introduced a rotating arm point just above the elbow. These classic G.I. Joe figures such as Scarlett, Snake Eyes, Breaker, Short-Fuze and the Cobra Trooper and Cobra Officer are such classic and wonderful sculpts, that even newer releases of these figures by Hasbro have re-used these incredible molds, with updated paint schemes. These original releases started what would define a new generation of action figure, and to this day the GI JOE and Cobra brand made by Hasbro is popular and very much alive.
