EI, I already had mixed feelings about playing with a Major Matt Mason "action figure"- couldn't make the jump to the larger GI Joe. Thought it looked too much like Ken. I played with miniatures (1/32 scale?) - romans, cowboys, civil war, Napoleonic, USMC, Afrika Corps, etc.
But it's ok if you played with GI Joe.
Ditcha change him into lots of different outfits, tickle him, & take him to bed with ya? LOL!!!
