Overview

From 2005 to 2007 Hasbro offered an 8 inch line of GI Joe figures, based on the cartoon series Sigma 6. These figures were of high quality, nicely priced, and loaded down with accessories. I got into the line around Spring of 2008, the line was officially ended, but stores still had decent selections for a while, I was able to purchase some from retail, but most I ended up getting aftermarket (trades on forums, eBay, etc). If Hasbro revived the line I'd pick it up immediately.

The line was subdivided into two sub-series, the Commando and Soldier. Commando figures retailed at $15, included many accessories, and part of the figure's packaging became a storage case for the accessories. The Soldier series were $10 and lacked the storage case, but usually had close to the same number of accessories, and in a few notable cases had even more. Each figure also usually included some kind of spring-loaded, projectile launching BFG which sometimes were cool or fun from my perspective, and were always fun for the kids. My daughters love these things, they'll shoot them down the hall endlessly if I let them.

As the line went on Hasbro experimented with the line, there were a small number of Adventure sets, and even 5 vehicles, though those aren't quite in scale, they're still pretty big items. The play value of this line is amazing, they're great fun for kids and collectors.

One strange thing I've noticed, I don't know why all the different Snake Eyes figures get distinct names, while most of the Storm Shadows are just that, Storm Shadow. Weird.
