Simpler isn't always better
The G.I. Joe toy designers delivered the most expansive military-themed toy line built in 1:18 scale in the history of the world! And because Good Guys exist only when there are Bad Guys, Hasbro pitted its new 1982 G.I. Joe against a clever and adept adversary, the villainous Cobra Command.
In addition to the toys themselves, Hasbro developed elaborate paperwork, package artwork, Combat Command File Card biographies for each action figure, and blueprints that were printed on instruction sheets included with every vehicle, playset, and weapon system.
