Vintage Hasbro GI Joe Box Art

I was organizing my toy stash and found these stored away. One of the things I always liked about the first few series of GI Joe - A Real American Hero toys in the early 80s was the packaging art.

Here are three of the vintage boxes and I also included the recent Collectors Club subscription Grand Slam who was one of my favorites, mostly because the HAL laser cannon was my favorite toy from the first series.

The Whirlwind twin battle gun and Polar Battle Bear snowmobile were also favorites. I remember the second series of figures coincided with their introduction in Marvel Comics GI Joe #11. After series 1 being mostly olive drab (OD) green, we started seeing some unique uniforms of Snow-Job, Airborne, Doc and Gung-Ho.

    1. What a fun collection. Still remember seeing them for the first time in 1982. Great toys and great artwork.
