    RAH kinda jumped the shark for me when they added Slaughter, Serpentor and Cobra La.
    It basically did, but I was in too deep at the time to notice. Slaughter was essentially super-powered, Serpentor was a really cool concept but too far-fetched for Joe. A year later, Cobra-La WAS that shark jump for me. The opening of the movie was the last great gasp of GI Joe, but the story itself sucks wind.

    I guess that I outgrew the line, and toys in genera,l after 1988, but the sci-fi turn that RAH made lost me, as well. I even ignored Zartan. Of course, Serpentor was a bridge too far. For me, the headiest days of the RAH line were the Stormshadow V1 days along with the rest of that 1983 line. I remember playing with those Styrofoam gliders in the snow right after Christmas. I really loved the line all the way through 85. 86 and 87 weren't shabby, but they were in a slow decline, at the least. Then, you through in Super Powers in 1984 and 85...it was heavenly for me.
