G.I. Joe 25th Anniversary Collection Reviews

2007 marked the 25th anniversary of the G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero toyline. To commemorate the event, Hasbro released a G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero 25th Anniversary collection of newly-sculpted 100 mm figures (as opposed to the 3¾” scale of the RAH line) based on classic and new designs of many of the line’s best known and most popular characters. The 25th Anniversary figures replaced the classic O-ring construction with a swivel chest feature and increased the number of points of articulation beyond the standard shoulder, elbow, and knees to swivel wrists, ankles, and double-hinged knees.

Originally planned to consist of only two sets of five figures each (one G.I. Joe and one Cobra), the 25th Anniversary collection was well received by retailers and collectors, and was expanded by Hasbro into a full-fledged toyline that ran through 2009, when Hasbro moved to figures based on the movie G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. The later releases in this line do not include the “25th Anniversary” branding, but in all other respects constitute a continuation of the 25th Anniversary collection.
