3. Which of these was an articulated action figure from Spain about 4" high but with all of the detailing of its 12" cousins?

Answer: Madelman

These things were amazing, totally articulated down to the tinyest grenades and sewn uniforms. You could buy extras like rafts and adventure packs just like with the bigger dolls. They are about as rare as a hen's tooth. If you ever find them, grab them!
4. What year was 'the G.I. Joe' action figure introduced to the US market?

Answer: 1964

He made his first appearance at the 1964 Toy Fair and thus changed the lives of little boys forever!

They decided to keep it simple and condense it down to one name only, 'G.I. Joe'.
6. Which of the following was not a part of the 'G.I. Joe' 'Soldiers of the World' series?

9. The material used to make the 'G.I. Joe' space suit was the same material used by real US astronauts.

Answer: True

Strange, but true. I don't think they would ever do that today but that is why the '60s were so cool. Too bad I was born in the '70s.
10. Grown men have been known to cry at collectible toy conventions in the battle to get the goods.

Answer: True

I have witnessed this strange phenomenon myself and it can be frightening. Sometimes they get violent like their burly plastic friends.

They also dress up as their favorite dolls and characters and spend hours dressing their toys up and positioning them carefully into dioramas.
