GI Joe

Updated on September 28, 2014

G.I. Joe The Great American Hero

Oh the adventures my brothers and I would have with our toys! Tammy and GI Joes always saved the day. A wonderful toy with such wonderfully detailed accessories make it a favorite doll for collectors today.

The well designed toy was just about boy-proof. Dirt crawls, mud baths, hanging from ropes on the bushes and crashing to the ground - Action, Adventure, and Excitement are three reasons that make GI Joe an American Hero.

This page is devoted to G.I. Joe.

"GI Photo Joe" Ranks High On The Yahoo Toy Pick List . . .

Military Photo Gallery Of The American Hero . . .

GI Photo Joe  was created by an action figure photographer in honor of his father who was a WW II veteran.  One of the artist's galleries merges the GI Joe action figure with the historic photographs of World War II.  Photo credits are included as part of this online museum.  Beautifully presented, and well deserving of being one of Yahoo's Top Picks in toys.

Is GI Joe An Action Figure, Or is GI Joe A Doll?

Someone once told me that "action figures are not dolls." What is the difference between an 'action figure' and a doll? Give it your best shot. Inquiring minds want to know. . .

What do you think?

If GI Joe is your American Hero, shout it out here . . .

      My favorite character was Lifeline the medic. He refused to carry a gun. I find it interesting that there was a group that gave out some G I Joe action figures including Lifeline. The toy came with a gun.

      Here in the UK GI Joe is called Action Man. When I was kid I used to read DC comics and see adverts for him before he was sold in the UK and was really jealous of American kids who had such great toys. He arrived in the UK at a similar time to the Johnny Seven One Man Army toy gun which your readers might like to visit my lens on?

      I do love GI Joe and my brother and I enjoyed many hours playing with them, too. I am lensrolling to the lens that my grandson and I did about WWE Action Figures.

      Great lens -- I used to have a GI Joe, so I'm sure it wasn't a doll! :-)

      Please visit my Lionel Trains lens.
