    For some reason, I didn't get the Steppenwolf figure. I don't really recall seeing the mail-away offer much. I think I got all the first series figures too early, so they didn't have the offer. I never got him carded either. Didn't have one until about 10 years ago.

    But I ordered that Clark Kent! And it took EXACTLY 14 weeks to get to me!!! 3 and half months of pure torture. I was like Ralphie waiting for Little Orphan Annie decoder pen. Seems like the GI Joe Flag Point stuff never took THAT long.

    ^ No the GI Joe RAH mail away stuff never took very long. May three weeks. Much quicker turn around than Kenner.

    You and I are the same age, I believe and were likely trafficing in many of the same mail away offers. I was 8 when RAH came out and 10 when Suoer powers hit the stores. We wer the perfect age for both lines and all of their offerings.

    PS. I waited for an entire summer for that Kenner Raiders mail away figure!
    Rampart, this is Squad 51. How do you read?

    Let's see, I mailed away for the Super Powers Club offer. I assumed I would continue to get a regular newsletter. I did not. I did find out Darkseid, Green Arrow and Red Tornado were coming!

    For GI Joe I mailed in a BUNCH of flag points. Hooded Cobra Commander, Wolverine missile carrier, the Manta thing, parachutes, etc.

    I don't think I could begin to list all of the figures and vehicle like items I got via mail from the RAH Joes. Duke, Cobra Commander, Sgt. Slaughter, The Fridge, several of those Steel Brigade / make your own GI Joe figures, two Starduster figures, MANTA... I know there are more that I could never remember. I followed that line through 1987.

    How could I forget Sgt. Slaughter? I never got the Triplet T tank because I already had the Sarge figure. I think I got the Cobra VAMP Jeep-thingee with flag points too. The Hooded Cobra Commander was the best mail-in in my opinion.

    RAH kinda jumped the shark for me when they added Slaughter, Serpentor and Cobra La.
    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...

    isn't that generally a consensus? I seem to recall that even back then.

    I don't think many fans remember Cobra La too fondly. But Slaughter is and was really popular. I personally didn't care for the character and I hated Cobra Commander being replaced by Serpentor.
