    No, not the gaily colored, puny 4 inch action figures...







    I'm talking the classic 12 inch fighting machines!







    The only thing gay about them was the tattoo on their butts...







    But these were men, real manly action figures of all races, creeds and colors!







    White G.I. Joes...







    Black G.I. Joes...







    Asian G.I. Joes...







    Hairy G.I. Joes...

    Eagle eyed G.I. Joes...







    Even Nazi G.I. Joes...







    I didn't have one of those, my nerdy cousin did though...



    I had the All American G.I. Joes, all the way to their pinnacle of badassness...







    The G.I. Joe Adventure Team with Kung Fu Grip!!!



    Then...I grew up. The End.

    Didn't the Apple II use 5 1/4" disks, not 8"?

    Doesn't anyone else find it strange that the black GI Joe was just a white GI Joe with a different coloured plastic while the asian GI Joe was a remarkable caricature?

    I thought black people were just white people with a different colored plastic and that all other "races" were just horrible caricatures.

    I used to buy that all the time it was like a flave explosion that lasted like 1min then no flavor you could usually find it at Rite Aid but they took it off they shelf like 6 months ago and now Rite Aid is closing its stores in Las Vegas and soon California
