    In celebration of the release of G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra movie, The Bothan Spy will be giving away a Storm Shadow Mighty Mugg!

    G.I. Joe is, to some, the "other" great 3-3/4" toy line to come out of the 80's. In many ways, it evolved from the success of the 70's and early 80's Star Wars action figure line. Not to mention, it had cool masked villains, doomsday weapons, and loads of nifty vehicles and playsets.

    So, in honor of G.I. Joe and it's new movie, one lucky Spy will win a Storm Shadow Mighty Mugg.

    All you have to do is reply this thread, answering three simple questions:

    1. Who is your favorite G.I. Joe character and why?
    2. What is your favorite G.I. Joe action figure?
    3. What is your favorite G.I. Joe toy (vehicle or playset)?


    There is a wide range of G.I. Joe characters and toys to choose from, ranging from the 1960's until today. If you never played with or watched any of the old toys or cartoons, pick a favorite from the new movie.

    A winner will be randomly chosen from complete responses here in this thread. You have until midnight CST on Friday, August 21, 2009 to enter.

    Good luck!

    Nifty contest! I already have one of these but I'll answer the questions for fun.

    1. This is a tough one...I might change my answer after I rewatch the cartoons. But right now I'll say Shipwreck.

    2. Baroness version 11 I never had any of the action figures, but this one is pretty awesome!

    I'd have to agree with Shipwreck being one of my favorite Joes. Destro and maybe Zartan are my fave villains.

    As for figure, the vintage and modern Cobra BATs areamong my faves.

    I like several of the vehicles, but the Cobra Night Raven is pretty sweet. I like the vintage toy, but the new movie version is neat as well.

    1. Who is your favorite G.I. Joe character and why?
    - It's really a tough one, I love Snake Eyes also a huge fan of Duke and Scarlet. Lt. Falcon was a favorite of mine from the animated film. Villains Destro, Baroness and Cobra Commander were my favs there.

    2. What is your favorite G.I. Joe action figure?
    - I loved by Snake Eye's action figure, sadly I lost it ages ago. I plan on getting the Snake Eyes from the film though.

    3. What is your favorite G.I. Joe toy (vehicle or playset)?
    - I'm a plane guy, I love planes always have. Worst part of moving for me was moving away from a major airport. That said my favorite is The Cobra Night Raven.
     
  8. My favorite character has always been Snake Eyes.

    My favorite action figure was Airborne.

    My favorite toy (vehicle or playset) was a toss-up between the Polar Battle Bear (snowmobile) and the W.H.A.L.E. (hovercraft).

    1. Who is your favorite G.I. Joe character and why?

    It has to be Snake-Eyes. I love the look, I love the fact that he doesn't talk. Silent Interlude pretty much hooked me onto comics by itself.

    2. What is your favorite G.I. Joe action figure?

    Toss up between Firefly v.1 (1984) and Storm Shadow v.2 (1988)

    3. What is your favorite G.I. Joe toy (vehicle or playset)?

    Oooh, tough call. I think I have to give the edge to the Killer W.H.A.L.E.
    over the Mobile Command Center...to be fair, I never had the U.S.S. Flagg or the Defiant which may have earned the top spot.
