InHasbro launched the first-ever line of G. Joe toys. Seeking to be a touch more realistic than some of its contemporaries, the manufacturing company based the action figures on four branches of the United States' armed forces; Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps. Joe coined the phrase "action figure. Joes have entertained children for decades. The original inch G.
While realism remained an essential component, Hasbro introduced anti-enemy specialists to the equation. Suddenly, G. Joes had personality, characterization, and bad guys. The action figures came equipped with tanks, unique features, and Cobra Commander. Each playset incorporated detailed biographies and crisp artwork, ensuring the days of a nameless Action Man discharging a generic peashooter were history. People reacted so positively to Hasbro's new line of toys, G. Joe spawned multiple animated series and a couple of terrible movies.

Top Reviews Most recent Top Reviews.Joe franchise. The line reappeared in and has continued in one form or another to the present day. It was supported by two animated series as well as a major comic series published by Marvel Comics. The toyline continues to play a large part in Hasbro's G.
This version of G. Joe is still much recognized by many people who grew up in the s and s. Joe brand of the s and s. After the 12" figure had been absent from toy shelves for a few years, G. The genesis of the toy line came about from a chance meeting in a men's room. According to Jim Shooterthen editor-in-chief of Marvel Comics :. Joe, but they were trying to come up with a new approach. Prior to G. Joe's relaunch inLarry Hama was developing an idea for a new comic book called Fury Forcewhich he was hoping would be an ongoing series for Marvel Comics.
The original premise had the son of S. Shooter approached Hama about the Joe project due to Hama's military background, and the Fury concept was adapted for the project. Shooter suggested to Hasbro that "G. Joe" should be the team name and that they should fight terrorists, while Archie Goodwin invented Cobra and the Cobra Commander ; everything else was created by Hama. Hasbro was initially uncertain about making villain toys, believing this would not sell.
Marvel would also suggest the inclusion of female Joes in the toyline, and to include them with the vehicles as Hasbro again worried they would not sell on their own.
Joe figure included a character biography, called a " file card ". Hama was largely responsible for writing these file cards, especially for the first ten years. When developing many of the characters, he drew much from his own experiences in the US military.
The overall premise for the toyline revolves around an elite counter-terrorist team code-named G. Joewhose main purpose is to defend human freedom from Cobraa ruthless terrorist organization determined to rule the world.
Every year, Hasbro and Marvel would meet up to discuss the upcoming toys and marketing. Larry Hama was given a free rein by Marvel's editorial here. Both the toys and the comics would become a great success, the comics being Marvel Comic's most subscribed title at one point, but Jim Shooter has said sister company Marvel Productions, who handled the cartoon, overspent on production and had "a critical success but a financial disaster" with the show.
InHasbro transferred control of the G. Joe toyline and brand name to the newly acquired Kenner division, who promptly cancelled the A Real American Hero toyline and replaced it with G. Joe Extreme.We have received a reliable word regarding a confirmed partnership between Hasbro and Jazwares for the G. Joe Franchise. Since Hasbro is directly manufacturing G. Joe toys, it is likely that Jazwares will contribute from the accessory front.
These kind of agreements are not new for both companies as they worked together recently for the Nerf toy line where Jazwares produced additional accessories for the hit action series. Jazwares 4-Inch and 6-Inch toylines for the Fortnite franchise is a super hit among Fortnite fans and G. Joe fans alike. What the two companies are cooking under wraps, will surely be a surprise this year.

Best news so far for the GI Joe fans I seen those Fornite figures selling everywhere Since Hasbro has shown they're mostly done with Joe for the time being, this could be a win-win. Hasbro makes money from the license and has near-zero risk with no production costs.
Hasbro has always wanted to broaden their scope, and this allows them to follow in Disney's footsteps by loaning out their in-house properties. I've been a fan of the Fortnite figures to date, and most of them blend pretty well with the later ME figures with something as simple as a head swap. I know nothing about FN, and I have used a FN head here and there for customs, the figure builds are just too off for me to include in my Joeverse.
I wonder how many players would want to have Snake Eyes as their avatar. Win win is Jazwares 4 inch articulated figures like Fortnite figures - more geared towards kids. And then Hasbro makes 6 inch figures. One thing Fortnite collectors know: if Jazware is making 4 inch figures - then they have wave already completed.
That company drops figures left and right that nobody knew was coming and they drop them fast!'Chaos in the Sea of Lost Souls' The Pyramid of Darkness Pt. 4 - G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero

Joe Resolute G. Joe Pursuit of Cobra G. Joe Renegades G. Joe 30th Anniversary G.When Hasbro launched the G. Joe: A Real American Hero toyline in alongside the Marvel Comics seriesit commissioned Marvel Productions to produce a series of fully animated second television commercials which were broadcast in order to promote the toys and comics, beginning with an ad for the first issue that aired throughout the Spring of The popularity of these commercials led to the production of a five-part G.
Joe mini-series which aired in later known as "The M. Device" when it re-aired during the series' syndication. Device, a powerful matter-transporter, and G. Joe and Cobra's race around the world to acquire the three catalytic elements which power the machine.
A second five-part mini-series followed in"The Revenge of Cobra", with a similar plot that involved the Joes and Cobras traveling around the world to recover the scattered fragments of Cobra's new weather-controlling weapon, the Weather Dominator. Both mini-series were written by Ron Friedman.
Joe was promoted to a full series inwith an initial order for a first season of 55 more episodes in order to make up the required 65 episodes for syndication. This season began with a third Friedman-penned five-part adventure, "The Pyramid of Darkness"; the story sees most of the existing cast from the two previous mini-series held captive by Cobra, while a new assortment of characters that is, the new range of toys thwart Cobra's attempts to surround the Earth with the electricity-negating Pyramid of Darkness.
Both the new and old characters then shared the spotlight throughout the course of the remaining fifty episodes of the series, which were primarily stand-alone single-episode adventures, with the occasional two-part story. The season was story edited by Steve Gerber. A second season of 30 episodes followed inbeginning with a fourth five-part story, "Arise, Serpentor, Arise!
This mini-series introduced the new range of toys into the story, which were at the center of most stories across the rest of the season; in particular, the mini-series debuted former WWF and then-current AWA professional wrestler Sgt. Slaughter as a member of G. Joe, played by himself. For this season, Buzz Dixon replaced Steve Gerber as story editor. Joe: The Moviea feature-length film version of the series, was intended to be released theatrically, followed by the release of The Transformers: The Movie.
However, the movie encountered unexpected production delays which allowed the Transformers feature to be released first.
Joe was relegated to direct-to-video status. It was released on VHS on April 20, and was later split into a 5-part mini-series for television syndication. The Movie follows up on the events of Season 2, revealing that Cobra Commander is actually an agent of a secret civilization known as Cobra-La led by a half-serpent being named Golobulus. The same organization is also revealed to have had a hand in the creation of Serpentor, because the dream that inspired Dr.
Mindbender to create him was actually a subconscious suggestion that was implanted into his brain by one of Golobulus' bugs. In addition to Cobra-La, two new sub-teams were introduced within the Joe Team, the Rawhides and the Renegades, both of which were composed of characters which were introduced into the toyline during its lineup. Marvel Productions continued to produce animated commercials for the toyline and comic books which featured a new theme song with the lyrics "Nobody Beats G.
Joe" after the broadcast of G. Joe: The Movie which was intended to set up Season 3. Michael Charles Hill, who wrote several episodes of the show, had already proposed an outline for Season 3 that would have followed the events of The Movie.
In this unmade third season, a criminal organization named "The Coil", which is composed of a group of former Cobra elites who are led by Tomax and Xamotwould have served as the new enemy faction, while a mutated Cobra Commander would have tried to secretly rebuild his organization after the destruction of Cobra-La, shifting allegiance between the Coil and the Joes in order to further his own ambitions.
