Cobra Commander Costumes
GI Joe received a rebirth in 1982 thanks to Star Wars. Hasbro decided to run a new line of toys against it. In the U.S., there was a relaunch in 1982 to a 3-3/4″ scale and Hasbro brought out playsets, vehicles, and a more complex backstory. The latter was about the ongoing struggle between evil Cobra Command and the G.I. Joe guys. The Cobra Command sought world domination by trying to commit terrorist acts. The American line merged into a Real American Hero line. G.I. Joe team members are not superheroes but they are experts with explosives, weapons, and martial arts.
In 1985, the GI Joe television series launched following the success of the comic book. It would lead to another tv series, two movies, and a toy for hundreds of thousands of boys in the US. Now, following the success of the 2009 movie about GI Joe, there are plans for the release of another movie in 2012.
