Which of these vintage toys is NOT a G.I. Joe figure?
“America’s movable fighting man” went through many different iterations. Can you spot the ONE figure that does NOT belong to this iconic franchise?
After Mattel’s Barbie doll became a huge success in the early 1960s, Hasbro saw an opening to create a counterpart aimed at boys. Thus, G.I. Joe was born. Originally released as a set of action figures representing different branches of the military, the toys expanded to include all kinds of adventurous jobs.
After declining sales in the 1970s, the franchise was reinvented with a companion comic book and animated show. Creating multiple individual characters, and antagonists for them to fight week after week, worked to attract a new generation to the G.I. Joe line.
Eight of the figures below were released under the G.I. Joe name in the 1960s, '70s and '80s. One toy belongs to a totally different franchise. Can you spot which one is no Joe? Keep picking until you find it!
