  GI Joe
Hasbro has kept G.I. Joe on the market nearly continuously since 1964, with the exception of a few years between the death of the classic “vintage” Joe in 1976 and the introduction of the new “Real American Hero” in 1982.
Created in 1963, G.I. Joe was inspired in part by a TV show called “The Lieutenant.” A licensing agent named Stan Weston brought the concept to Don Levine at Hasbro, with the idea of creating a poseable soldier for boys.
G.I. Joe Extreme was another attempt to reposition Joe after the manner of many popular superhero action figure lines, but died after only two assortments.

The GI Joe action figure, a plastic doll twelve inches tall and dressed as a military man, was the first action figure and the first exclusively boy's doll, disguised as a war toy.
Invented by Stanley Weston, GI Joe was inspired by Mattel's Barbie,; which made its debut in 1959, but GI Joe was different from Barbie in that it had twenty-one movable joints, enabling it to be configured in various combat poses.
Although the GI Joe action figure originated during the Cold War, it was nonetheless made in the image of the World War II fighting man. According to Hassenfeld's promotional campaign, the face of GI Joe comprised a composite of the faces of twenty Medal of Honor recipients from the war.

They were flanked by much of the Joe team, including the mysterious ninja Snake Eyes, silent and brooding, and the Native American tracker Spirit, feeding mice to his eagle Freedom in a dignified manner.
