    This was a great video, as always. I love how Tony's childhood mind worked. Honestly, my mind worked similarly in regards to super heroes. I rejected the sillier aspects of Remco's Batman utility belt (redneck name belt buckle, no thanks), and the Mego Elastic Super Heroes, who did not have stretching powers, so I did not want them (I didn't know about the Plastic Man figure back in the day).

    I ordered Sgt. Slaughter through the initial mail-away offer. I will admit I didn't care for him taking over GI Joe and fighting off armies of B.A.T.s by himself. So I wasn't into the kind of silly looking Triple T either, and passed on it. I did buy the HAVOC and loved it, despite knowing GI Joe had really jumped the Sci-Fi shark with it.

    Another great vid by Analog toys.

    Sgt. Slaughter and Serpentor is when RAH jumped the shark for me. Unlike Analog toys I loved the Sci-fi craziness of RAH. The red and blue lasers, Cobra temples, giant snake robots, etc. A realistic military line would not have appealed to me. I just did not like the characters of Slaughter and Serpentor. I did not like Serpentor replacing Cobra Commander or popular characters in the JOE team being sidelined by new D listers. Going all Cthulhu horror with Cobra La was another misstep.
    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...

    ^Cobra La broke me. I love the opening of GI Joe The Movie, it's a distillation of everything I loved about the franchise; the toys, the cartoon and the comics. But the rest , while well-produced, was so far off what I wanted from GI Joe, it killed the franchise for me in a lot of ways. 1987 was the last series I really bought, and it just helped push me out of buying toys to play with.
