CSB:
I was one of the 10 kids in the world to find where Cobra hid the "stolen missles/mass parts" or something like that (it was 86, a long time ago) and win the USS Flagg. You had to use the clues to find where they were hidden (the volcano base if i recall) and mail it in. That was after Christmas, I got a phone call from them in the spring and Most of it is still in my moms basement (no I don't still live in it)

FormlessOne: 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!"


You never watched Virgin Islands Joe growing up? It was a cartoon about an elite military force that battled evil cobras, and various other snakes. Lotta snakes on those islands.

Now I've got the theme song stuck in my head. VI Jooooooooooooe... A Real Unincorportated Territorial Hero!

As a kid, I always wanted to BE the GI Joe, not play with dolls action figures. I was always sad they didn't make any cool GI Joe roleplaying guns.

After all, this was the 80s then you could get a realistic looking uzi for 9.99...

*shakes tiny fist*

I had to beg for one. But got it for Christmas one year. Later got the Terrordrome. All in all, I collected Joes up till 93 or 94. Then when they reissued the 25th anniversary figures, I bought those packs. I had a few of the vehicles in the article and even as a kid thought to myself, "WTF? I don't even."

For example - the Terrordrome had the raised platform where the Firebat would launch from. While around the launch platform were stations for computers and communications. Wouldn't all those users and equipment fry the moment one of those launched? On the Flagg - the runway was too short for the Skystriker and the Flagg had no noticeable catapult system. If Cobra launched a coordinated air raid upon that vessel, it was sunk. Planes stuck out like a sore thumb there. Some of the other planes nozzles reached over the blast shield, so all Joes behind it were instant barbecue.

Shadow Blasko: cletusnbrandine: BigBooper: 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 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.

How did you patch over the side that was cut away so you could get it to float? And what did you go about the Cobra chef in the bottom that went mad from being at the bottom of the sea?

If I remember right we used bondo, liquid nails, and styrofoam to get her to float. Made the fire "pretty"
