The toymaker was Donald Levine, the former Hasbro executive who was instrumental in the creation of the wildly popular G.I. Joe toys that generated more than $5 billion in sales after hitting the shelves in 1964.

Also, GI Joes from the 60s? I thought that started with my gen in the 80s.

Nope. But they weren't the 6 inch characterized action figures of the 80s. These were more like if Ken had enlisted.
