My Tuskegee Airmen blog
prompted me to photograph the rest of my GI Joes. This was done over a week ago. Before returning them to their shelves, I wanted to blog-document each one. Since I need to return that section of the room to some form of order, I decided to use this free time to complete the documentation of my meager Hasbro GI Joe and "lone" Jane collection. They are included here in circa-date or box-date order:
According to my son's question when I acquired this, my first GI Joe, circa 1990s, "What are you doing with Heavy Duty?" This is, therefore, to the best of my knowledge, 6-inch GI Joe Heavy Duty, purchased loose.
Hall of Fame GI Joe Stalker, 1991
GI Joe Action Sailor Masterpiece Edition, 1996; original reproduction GI Joe Sailor is housed in a heavy cardboard, book-like display box, includes the deluxe book, GI Joe the Story Behind the Legend
by GI Joe creator, Don Levine, with John Michlig (GI Joe Action Sailor is book's cover image).
GI Joe Action Soldier Masterpiece Edition, 1996; original reproduction GI Joe Soldier is also housed in a heavy cardboard, book-like display box, includes same book mentioned above but has cover image of
GI Joe Action Soldier.
