The military-inspired GI Joe from Hasbro collection includes a wide variety of action figures, including both GI Joe and Cobra characters. Hasbros GI Joe series also has a line of accessories, such as military-style vehicles and other toys. There is a large variety to choose from.What types of vehicles are available?
With vehicles manufactured as early as 1983, there are more than 250 transport vehicles on the market. These vehicles were modeled after classic military transport machines that were used in battle.

Joe action figures; some of the transport machines can carry a large number of figures at one time.What were the first GI Joe vehicles?
When Hasbro first started releasing vehicles in 1983 for GI Joe: A Real American Hero, they focused on helicopters and troop transports. They also included realistic detailing, such as seatbelts and rescue cables. Listed below are the names of some of the early models.
- The Amphibious Personnel Carrier, or A.P.C., includes a pretend 50-millimeter auto-control cannon and carries 23 soldiers.
- The Skystriker XP-14F includes plenty of pretend-missile firepower, working parachutes, and ejector seats.
- The Dragonfly XH-1 introduced the first GI Joe helicopter and the Wild Bill action figure. This character became a well-established part of the Hasbro series.
These toy vehicles are designed to be as realistic as possible. The vehicles have doors and openings in order to place your action figures inside. Also, some of the weaponry is adjustable so that you can properly aim at a pretend target during play. The wheeled transport machines have the ability to roll, but they will need a player to assist with movement and steering.How many GI Joe action figures can these vehicles carry?
The number of figures that a vehicle can seat will vary based on the model. With the addition of carriers and mobile platforms, you can set up large and complex battlefields to expand your area of play.
- The Mobile Command Center houses dozens of GI Joe troops and support help for troops in the field.
- The Monster Blaster A.P.C. features the Lock n Load Missile Firing Cannon and carries up to 20 Hasbro GI Joe action figures.
