GI Joe was a failure. They never stopped the terrorist threat known as Cobra. They kept taking that government funding, and buying all kinds of crazy new weapons, but they never could stop the bad guys.
That was my problem with all
action figures. And a lot of non-action ones too - do Barbie / the Bratz / Sindi et al really nead a car, a beach house, a party van, etc? It seemed to me that the more she bought, the unhappier she got, but where was the psychiatrist model* to help her out? And as for action man.... every xmas he got something new and improved - a commanche, a dune buggy, and every xmas Dr. X came back with something else and wasn't dead, so AM couldn't return home to (my sister's) Barbie.
It may have something to do with the rubber missiles. And his HMMWV almost certainly ain't armoured.
