80s Toys + Sleeping Bags = Win
Was 1985 the greatest year of the 80s for action figures? Consider the volume and variety of lines launched that year, and think of the strong showings by existing series like GI Joe and Transformers. This page from the 1985 Sears Christmas catalog distills much of what made the decade great for action figures, albeit in the sleeping bag format. Okay, except for Golden Girl.
I don’t recall seeing this GI Joe item when I was a kid; I usually spotted the earlier versions. This one would have been a hit with me, as it’s sporting three of my all-time faves: Flint, Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes. You also can’t go wrong with the Joe logo hewn in stone. Nighty night!
