Hasbro’s Unproduced New USS Flagg Prototype Makes Your Inner Six Year-Old Weep
In 1986, there was no better way to gain false friendship and genuine jealousy than being the one kid in class whose parents loved him enough could afford to buy The G.I. Joe USS Flagg. The massive 7 foot-long aircraft carrier was the ultimate playset, and with the release of the the “25th Anniversary” line of figures starting in 2007, plenty of Joe fans and collectors hoped that there would be a new version released so that they could finally feel the joy that they never had as children.Sadly, even though the line was extensive enough to include “Rowdy” Roddy Piper teaming up with Destro, a new Flagg was never released. This weekend at the 2011 G.I. Joe convention, however, Hasbro revealedan prototype design for a new USS Flagg that for some reason never made it to the public.

There was this and the giant space shuttle. Those were the two most impressive toys anyone could possibly have.
I knew a kid who had both of them.
Obviously, he was the Lord of GI Joes on the playground, even though he was faced with the unique problem of having toys everyone wanted him to bring to school but which were far too large to ever be brought to school.
The GI Joe Mobile Command Center (enjoy the commercial) was the biggest toy I ever had and if I had any idea what happened to it, I’d probably still be playing with it today.

‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation’ Trailer Arrives. OMG, Watch It! Now! [Video]

By Caleb Goellner

I’m not sure how to say this exactly, but the freshly-posted trailer for G.I. Joe: Retaliation may be the craziest thing I’ve seen all year. There’s The Rock, ninjas fighting on the side of a mountain, Cobra taking over the friggin’ White House… I’m all kinds of overstimulated. Prepare to laugh, cry, and high-five the nearest living being with gusto after the cut. Horrible, awesome and/or horribly-awesome, June 29th can’t come fast enough.

Old Live Action commercial for the G.I.Joe comic book.

Snake Eyes says, “You’ll be seeing stars!”

Didn’t think it was possible for Snow-Job to look more out of place than he does here, but this proved me wrong.  

This is a thousand times better than both of the GI Joe movies.

Actual Dialogue from GI Joe

  • Cobra Commander: Your interference cost me victory!
  • Tomax & Xamot: We should have taken control sooner!
  • Destro: Your vain denseness destroyed or tactical advantage!
  • Baroness: I had everything under control until you imbeciles got pretentious!
  • Cobra Commander: You pea-brained carbon copies of identical dumbells!
