The History of G.I. Joe part 13- Early Competition

Okay, I'm going to admit that my framing gimmick might be a bit lackluster in this one. Anyway, it's got good information in it. All about Matt Mason, Stony Smith, and many, many people named Johnny.

The History of G.I. Joe part 12- Action Man in 1966

G.I. Joe's British buddy is the spotlight for today, as we examine Action Man's origins, and the first year of toy releases. A lot of similarity to Joe, but in time, Action Man will become a very distinct line worth examining in detail.
