Listicular Fortitude


One of my favorite things about G.I. Joe figures was the accessories some of them came with.No doubt,the animal companions has alot to do with that.There were also lots of cool and unique weapons and extras thrown In for certain figures,which imo put them over the top.These were figures that appealed to me more than the ones that came with your standard backpack and rifle.So lets begin with number 10.

10.Dial Tone's backpack

 9.Road Pig's brick weapon 

8.Super Trooper's chromed out weapons                                                                                                  

7.Big Boa's boxing gloves and punching bag                                                                                       


6.Hydro Viper's Manta Ray and scuba gear                                                                                          

5.Firefly's phone                                                                                                                                    

4.William Perry's football                                                                                                                      

3.Spearhead and Max bobcat                                                                                                                   

2.Raptor's Falcon                                                                                                                                    

1.Snake Eyes  w/ Timber                                                                                                                        

Of course I could have added Zartan's swamp skier,but I never had one so I don't know how cool It actually was ;)Plus that was more of a boxed deal.

20 Years Before 2000 reminds us that now It's time for a short break and 

Brother Midnight gets us in the mood for Halloween 




  1. gah you just reminded me how much I need more Hydro Viper in my life :/

  2. He was so cool ,Brother.And that one webbed hand was classic!Many a joe got face palmed with that hand back in the day.

  3. Great list! I tried so hard to not loose the accessories, but dammit they always ended up missing! My number 1 on this list would have been Croc Master's whip and crocodile.

    1. I thought about adding him to the list ,but I never owned him as a kid.I never got to experience that awesomeness.

    2. I used to have him do battle with my Bionic 6 action figures! He was a tough dude.

    3. I'm with Sypda. Croc Master's gear would have been my number one, though Dial-Tone's backpack got a ton of use around my house too.

    4. Not to mention,Croc Master's pet crocodile would have had Timber,Junkyard and Max for lunch!That crocodile was pretty menacing.

  4. Lol as I was reading the list I was like mine would be a little different, but then saw what I was thinking about such as Max and Raptor's bird. Great choices! Though I loved Serprntor's cobra and Junkyard!

  5. I think all I have of my original Snake eyes is his Uzi- one random accessory. I have the retaliation snake eyes with his stuff, but I am amazed by how well you are keeping track of the countless accessories that come with those many, many joes

    1. When I think of Joe accessories,these are the first ones to pop in my head.As a kid,It felt like you were getting away with something when your action figure came with cool and unique extras.
