My favorite was the commentary on #9: The Cobra Imp. :rotfl

Too funny!

"The Fang is possibly the most fragile air vehicle in history, and during the COBRA Wars of the 1980’s, American forces shot down 14,982 of them, injuring close to a dozen pilots."

Love Torch shooting fish and "Oh for crying out loud. This is going to get someone killed." :lol

I always did think the POGO was stupid--even as a kid.

Clearly he's not that familiar with the products. Probably just a non-fan wanting to talk ^^^^ about the vehicles after seeing the YoJoe website. There are funnier features like the ejector seat on the Fang he could've mentioned.

No kidding. Apparently the Hydrofoil is a "stupid vehicle" because of the box art. WTF?

And how on earth is it going to get back to base, or do they expect it to reattach to the mothership after the inevitable rout? Would that look like two planes humping? Would it be hot?

There are some funny lines in that article.

You guys taking that list serious may even be funnier than the article itself.

It's also old news, which is partly why it's not that funny to me anymore. You're right, there are some good lines, but I've seen funnier GI Joe stuff.

There was a really good recent one I saw lately, I think it was on figures and/or animal sidekicks? Anyone?

Hit and miss. Some were funny and rightly so others were sacred and he should be shot on sight with that lil turret on the rattler.

I hated the Pogo even as a kid and my Buzz Boar always fell apart. :tap I have to admit I'm surprised to not see the Thunder Machine or the Air Skiff or the giant Dreadnok cycle, those seem like fairly easy targets. The most humorous thing to me isn't even from the article...

The Fang has an ejector seat!:rotfl:rotfl:rotfl

I like the Snow Cat. In a matter of fact I still have it, and the fang, SKy Hawk, Hydrofoil, Cobra flight pod and a few others.

That's just it, EVERYONE loves those vehicles, except someone who doesn't know anything about GI Joe (i.e. the writer of this list, it would seem)!

Anyone who can find cause to rip on the Rattler has no clue what they're talking about.

That and the only way the Sky Striker can fly with it's landing gear up, is supersonic. There are things to poke fun at, but you actually have to own the damn things to know. :dunno

:lecture:lecture:lecture I agree
And I still have that one too. The Rattler was one of the badass Cobra vehicles. Especially the Hydrofoil.

GI Joe is cool enough to stand up to some jabs, especially if they're genuinely funny. We know the guy isn't in the know like most of us (the Mamba helicopter's twin propellers can and do spin without hitting each other for instance) but a lot of his criticisms are either on point or still funny regardless.

Hey, I like good GI Joe parody, but considering the vast amount of stupid vehicles that actually were released, his list is really just lazy at best.

Now HERE's a good list: http://www.toplessrobot.com/2009/09/the_17_coolest_gi_joe_and_cobra_animal_sidekicks.p hp

Missile exhaust is orange, but apparently not very hot.
