I'm a bit mixed on the best line. They all jumped the shark at some point, getting sillier and more childish as time went on. Probably the original Space Lego line for me. Though the Buck Rogers TV show figures had the Star Fighter and that's my favorite ship. We never got a Last Starfighter Gunstar. Those two vessels would be my whole fleet if I had my way. Smaller lines that stay on target. For all that I really wish I'd collected the Warlords line of HeMan knockoffs based on DC's The Warlord. I wish they'd do those guys as toys now. Oh well, my childhood was Lord of the Rings, D&D, Arak Son of Thunder, and The Warlord.
Interesting didn't know they named differently elsewhere.I had those, but as an Australian, they were Action Man not GI Joe.
I prefer the wider variety of characters as well. Well, at least until they recruited Sergeant Slaughter and what not.The reason those 12” figures died out in the late 1970s was oil prices skyrocketing. That’s when 3.75” took off and kids loved it because you could have more that cost less and took up less space.

Aww now I want to play a comical modern warfare rpg. I want to be Eclair!
Now that I think about it I'm pretty sure Extreme Vengeance! would be perfect for this.
I feel lame. I only have the core rules.Ha ha...I have that and the Maximum Damage supplement...nobody wants to play with me. I keep saying who wouldn't want to play an over-the-top 1980s action movie hero for at least a one-shot?

I might even have Die and Die Again but I would have to look for them to see.

I wonder if they'd work in play-by-post...
