G.I. Joe vintage action figures have been a staple of the toy industry for almost 60 years. In fact, released in 1964, these original Hasbro toys were the world’s first action figures!
Instead of referring to them as “GI Joe dolls,” they were marketed as “action soldiers.” Furthermore, Hasbro saw the success of Mattel’s Barbie, and adapted their model by producing interchangeable clothing and accessories befitting these new action soldiers.
For over 5 decades, the historic toy line has played a significant part in many people’s lives. In the 1980s, popularity soared when the line was re-branded, adding “A Real American Hero,” and introducing new collectibles and a classic animated series.
The animated series paved the way for assorted spin-off properties, including several, live-action movies. Thanks to an expansive universe, a massive catalog of accessories, and nostalgia for the 1985 animated series, Hasbro’s action figures continue to be popular with collectors and hobbyists today.
If you’re lucky, you can find them in antique stores. Alternatively, you can find them in online marketplaces like We-R-Toys. If you are looking for the latest addition to your collection, you’ll appreciate the diverse selection of vintage GI Joe figures for sale at We-R-Toys.
