    computer animated...............don't know about that. i remeber the original g.i. joe movie. it was the shit. i mean now it would just be soooo boring because nothing ever really happens. but back then it was so rad, the opening song goes on for like 4 minutes. and there are so many cobra guys parachuting with guns and stuff, the coolest guns EVER. wow what guns they had.

    fuck yeah I was into GI Joes. I used to have gi joes and some vehicles. I used to turn the water on in front to make mud and play with them in there. I was also into Rambo and Commando.

    when i lived in new york i thought it would be cool to bring all of my gi joes to the park with me. after playing with them in the sand, i wanted to go play on the jungle gym but i couldnt bring my gi joes with me and my mom was asleep so i had the wonderful idea of burying them in a spot where i could find them later. i buried them, i left, i played, i came back, and they were gone :( im so wonderfully intelligent.
    btw, comp, dude, u forgot cobra commander.:crazy:

    YOOOOOOOO JOE!!!

    GI-JOE -The Hiss Vehicle was the shit!
    Transformers-did you see Optimus Prime is now a fire truck? BS.
    Mask-anybody remember these, I know I had/have them but don't remember the story line behind them or character, I remember a semi truck.

    I think all these still live in my parents attic, along w/ the not so violent playmobile and lego's.

    Any time that happened to mine, they would become a "casualty of war." Those would be the ones that were dead and strewn across the battle field. I had a big tree in my front yard when I was a kid. I would climb up and position all of my G.I. Joes on branches (sometimes hanging from kite string "repelling" ... sometimes on "zip lines" between two branches).

    On a side note: I have a theory that involves the government and TV executives conspiring to brainwash the children of America using cartoons. It seemed to hold a lot more water with the cartoons that were on when I was a kid. Now days, most of the toons on TV are just mindless bullshit.

    Now you know ... And knowing is half the battle.

    Mask was rad! I had a bunch of those guys too. That show was kind of like a mix between Johnny Quest and G.I. Joe.
