Induct Your Favorite G.I. JOE Figures into the Hall of Heroes Line

In 1982, Hasbro launched a radically different line of G.I. JOE action figures, which were scaled down from 12" to 3-3/4". G.I. JOE went from being a single character (with many iterations) to a team of elite forces with an equally matched enemy led by Cobra Commander. Last year marked the 25th Anniversary of what has become known as G.I. JOE VS. COBRA and Hasbro released 25 collectible 3 3/4" action figures to celebrate the milestone.

That celebration continues this year and now fans and collectors are being invited to participate. Starting yesterday, April 15th, All 62 single-carded 3-3/4-inch figures released through 2008 are listed on, where fans are asked to vote for their favorite. The ten figures with the most votes will be announced at the G.I. JOE Convention in Dallas (June 27-29), and will then be released in spring 2009 as the Hall of Heroes Line with unique deco and commemorative packaging!

Voting is open through May 12th. To see the list of figures and vote for your favorite, visit
