Christmas Morning, 1984: G.I. Joe

Christmas 1984

Here you see the Cobra Stinger, the Cobra Rattler, the Wolverine, and the Dragonfly—some of the most beautiful toys ever produced in arguably the most distinctive toy packaging ever designed. I still get butterflies in my stomach when I see the boxes and cards.

    I feel the same exact way about the GI Joe packaging. Something about the toys framed against that orange and yellow explosion with the logo above just made those things look like Christmas no matter what time of year you got them.
