LA Times Runs A Top-10 List For G.I.Joe Toys

GI Joe: Jay Cochran - 2010.05.08
The LA Times yesterday posted on their website a Top-10 list of the all-time great G.I.Joe toys from the 80's. The toy that made #1, I don't think will come to a surprise to anyone. I was disappointed that the Cobra Terror Drome didn't seem to make the list at all. Click here to check out the article and thanks to TNI reader Ambrose Kalifornia for the heads up.

I can't believe anyone could not include the HISS on a top 10 list! I'll give you the Mauler over the MOBAT, but the HISS is the foundation of Cobra Armored Infantry.

The WHALE should be more near the top, the HISS and Mobot need to be replaced with probably the Mauler and Snowcat or maybe the Stinger, otherwise, it's a solid list.

IMO I think the RAM and MOBAT both deserve to be in there! For me both those are what defined a Joe vehicle. They were "realistic" without being too real. Cobra obviously had a lotta vehicles that were futuristic and kinda far out, but for me a joe vehicle was about we had in our milit... read more

I think the Flagg is a bit too large/unwieldy to be a top the list (especially a list of "vehicles"), but I suppose it's status as the "grail" of GIJoe Toys gives it a little leeway.

When I think Top 10 vehicles for GI Joe, the Rattler, Tomahawk, Night Raven, Killer Whale, and Hydrofoil would all be on my list...they're definitely my favorites from the original run. I was glad to see he included them all. I do agree he missed out on not including the Terrordrome, but thi... read more

the Mobat sucks. It's one of the few Joe vehicles I actually dislike. And the Silver Mirage is better than the RAM

...hmmmm...so the Movie DIDN'T kill all public interest in GI Joe... It's a good list! And I own 8 out of 10 of those vehices (no Flag or Rattler for me

Surely the Flagg is the #1, I'd place either the Shuttle Complex or Terrordrome at 2 (well I guess they take up 2 and 3). Other notables left off the list: Headquarters Dragonfly Snowcat I could go on I suppose, but I guess if you're making the list based on what set trends or was... read more

I can see the HISS making it over the HISS 2 but I agree the Mauler should have made it over the MOBAT. I also think the Vamp was a more fun toy to play with over the RAM. Where I really think they missed the boat though was not including the Terror Drome on the list.

Best vehicles of the 80s and they pick the M.O.B.A.T. and H.I.S.S.? The Mauler is better than the M.O.B.A.T. (if your going for a "motorized tank" thing). And the H.I.S.S. is just iconic. What about the H.I.S.S. II. MUCH better tank. I always liked the Desert Fox.
