Joe Battlelines Top Ten



JBL members were asked “What’s Your Top Ten?” and you responded.  The lists were compiled and broken down to the ten most popular toys, and there were some surprises.  Then you were asked to vote on those top ten and you overwhelmingly responded with even bigger surprises.  So ladies and gentlemen let’s get right into it and as well see what some of you had to say;  


G.I.Joe Headquarters Command Center

Released in 1983 the Headquarters Command Center was G.I.Joe’s first base.  It could house your vehicles in one of its two bays, one featuring an elevating platform.  There was a jail cell for those captured Cobra Troopers, and a command center for your Joe’s.  As well as a storage place for your weapons in the back of the main base and for your file cards in the (tank) bay.  It made for countless hours of fun and a home for your Joe team when not in battle.
