He's no doll, he's an action figure man.

49 years ago today, G.I. Joe was introduced (that’s the same year the 1st Mustang was made) and since then kids have been kickin’ enemy butt.  This dude was a total bad-ass.  At one point G.I. Joe he had a scar on his face, he had a nail on the bottom of his thumb, his own helicopter, life like hair and beard, and let’s not forget the awesome kung–fu grip. 

Not sure which G.I. Joe you grew up with, personally I never ever had one.  I had his cheaper lesser known adventure team companion Bullet Man.  What?  He was the human bullet!
