Dig These 13 Groovy Classic G.I. JOE Catalogue Pages

TOYHEM: The pages of holidays past…

Welcome to TOYHEM! For the third straight holiday season, we’re bringing you a series of features and columns celebrating the toys of our youth, which often made for the best memories this time of year. Click here to check out the complete index of stories — and have a Merry Christmas, a Happy Chanukah and Happy Holidays! — Dan

Some of the most fun we’ve had during this year’s TOYHEM was posting a gallery of 13 GROOVY MEGO CATALOGUE PAGES. (Click here to check it out. It’s fun!)

We also had a blast with Jim Beard’s TOP 13 GI JOE ADVENTURE TEAM Accessories and Playsets. (Click here to check that out. It’s also fun!)

So what next? How about 13 GROOVY G.I. JOE CATALOGUE PAGES – again thanks to musician Ron Papa, catalogue collector nonpareil.

  1. I am old enough and had one of the original GI Joes, as well as the first version of the foot locker.

    Until my sister was old enough and took it over for her Barbie stuff.

    Wish I still had them….sigh….

  2. I had one of the first Joes with “Life Like” hair. His hair was brown, but he didn’t have the beard for some reason.

  3. Another great post.
    Someone should make a book collecting all these cool catalog toy pics.
    I had the GI Joe Lost Mummy toy.
