Today I’m ranking every GI Joe toy line. Well, within reason. There are some criteria or I’d go absolutely insane.
Here are my (admittedly very loose and arbitrary criteria):
- The toy line was made by Hasbro itself (so no Hot Toys, Sideshow, Super7, or my beloved KRE-O)
- The toy line is related to the ARAH iteration of GI Joe (so no OG 12” Joes, Adventure Team, etc)
- No Fast Action Battlers, Micro Force, Combat Heroes, etc– I’d go crazy trying to catalog all of those weird side lines from the Modern Era
- I’m not listing 3.75” and 12” figures from these lines separately, with one exception
That’s it! I’m sure I’m still missing something and I probably screwed up some of the dates. But I promise I did a good bit of research and tried my best.
Also, I have Very Good Taste in everything, but this is just my list. I’m sure yours would be different. But probably not that different!
This is already going to be too wordy, so let’s just get to it, shall we?
