The... what now?

The 10 Most ?


/My rich ass neighbor friend had the FLAGG. It was truly awesome, I must admit.

Headline: "The ten most VI Joe and Cobra vehicles."

Voluntary Indefinite Joe's catchphrase? "Nowhere else to go, Joe!"
Volontaire International Joe's catchphrase? "Allez Joe!"

This is a universe where direct combat results in 0 casualties and a lot of parachute deployments. Its funny that someone would even question the plausibility of the weapons systems.

When it comes to the Mudfighter and the author's moronic comment about the propellor resembling a desk fan:

www.aviationnews.eu

That style of prop is actually used on modern turboprop aircraft for it's efficiency and increases in available power. GI Joe actually got that one right, and predicted the future of aviation propulsion. Plus the mudfighter looked cool.

I had Transformers, He-Man, TMNT, Thundercats and others that I'm probably forgetting.

The COBRA Battlebarge made for a lame toy, but it looks just like the operating bases you could build in Command and Conquer to load up with four guys.

The STUN was probably more amazing for how much it was used in the show, but not much more ridiculous than the high profile H.I.S.S tank. The Fang copter always struck me as the sort of helicopter an organization like the GLA or Nod would use on the cheap.

I don't remember the name of it but I had a GI Joe tank that transformed into a forward mobile command center and had seats and stations for 5 Joe figures.

Played with it so much it self destructed one day when I pressed the "open" button. Poor Joes never saw it coming.

I don't understand why I can spend 30 minutes coming up with a HotY candidate gem that can't get greened, and something that obviously hasn't even been looked at twice since it got typed gets frontpaged instantly.

Was it this thing?

It had stairs to fight up and down, and even a jail cell.

Terror Drome still had to be the best base. Lord knows how many times my Joes had to fight room to room. Only to get to the top and discover that the launch platform for the jet was actually where the secret Cobra reserves were hiding.

Not quite but close enough. Mine was a green tank like thing that had a button on the back that when pressed, opened up the inside automatically. Had two howitzers and lots of machine guns. When it broke I just added it to my play since it flew apart. The two drivers up top survived the explosion but the three inside didn't, poor sods didn't know what hit them.

/though its weird I can remember play with that much detail but not my sister's birthday...

I don't remember having any GI Joe vehicles, let alone the 10 most 6 of them.

Did have my share of action figures, though.

I had almost every single toy in the 1985 line except the U.S.S. Flag. I wanted that aircraft carrier SO bad. In 1985 most of the vehicles were still based on real military vehicles, so they were more kick ass than silly. The box of parts that survived my childhood is still in my parents attic somewhere. Someday I need to dig that box out and see what survived.

You didn't miss anything by not having the Flagg. It was a giant unmovable thing that sat in the middle of the room. suddenly every GI Joe adventure had to involve the ocean.

The deck was an awesome place for battles, as was the command center of it. The Defiant was even better though, and the Transformers could join in on that one.

It was my dream toy, too, and I thought it was pretty awesome when I got it. Still do think so, as a matter of fact.

I didn't realize the front section floated, but then again, I don't think I ever took it anywhere near water.

Same here. I had all the lower cost toys courtesy of xmas, but a toy for 100the dollars in 1986the wasnt feasible for ma and pa. So they did the next best thing. Built me and my brother 2 out of thick cardboard. Ahhh memories

The FLAGG was the location of the Final Battle Of The Summer Of Our Youth.

Two of my friends were moving away, and another one was going off to private school, so we pretty much knew things would never be the same after that summer.

When 4 friends and I decided it was time to put away childish things, we spent the weekend after the 4th of July engaged in an epic battle to determine who won and who lost. Everyone died, but some things were worth dying for.

We donned our Lazer-tag vests and got out our guns, [I loaned both my white and black rifles to the kids that were moving, as a token of friendship, and never did ask for them back] assigned Joe/Cobra or Autobot/Decepticon names to ourselves and whoever won, that action figure lived, and the other (and their vehicle, if they came with one) would be blown up with leftover fireworks.

Finally, on Sunday evening, with about 8 action figures left (out of ... somewhere near 100 when we started) the final battle took place on the FLAGG.

We filled her full of the leftover fireworks, and gasoline, staged a mock battle, in which the bad guys won by taking control of the FLAGG, and then we floated the her into the middle of pond scuttled her to keep her out of enemy hands, and take out every last bad guy.

We shot roman candle at her until she caught fire and exploded. Only Duke, Snake Eyes, Tomax (or maybe it was Xamot) Jetfire and Megatron Survived.


[Each of us choosing one toy to keep]

It was one of those weekends that seemed to last forever, and really was the end of childhood for most of us.

The Mobile Command Center was actually the last big GI Joe toy my parents ever bought me. I used my allowance after that to keep buying figures for a while but punched out when they started going flourescent.

I loved the MCC and played the shiat out of that thing.

I never had the Terrordome. My best friend at the time had that. I was always more of a Joe guy anyway, hehe.
