G.I. Joe didn't always have a Kung Fu grip, at least not until the 80's, that is. G.I. Joe dates back to long before any of us were born, and they still make new G.I. Joe toys today. Of course the 80's G.I. Joe line had its own charm. There were action figures, vehicles, comic books, lunch boxes, and more. You could even get 80's limited edition figures by mail, such as NFL player Joe The Refrigerator Perry and Sergeant Slaughter.
