3 3/4" 1983 G.I. Joe Action Figures
While the construction of 1982's Straight-Arm figures was not unique to Hasbro, 1983 saw Hasbro's first improvement on the design: Swivel-Arm Battle Grip. Now G.I. Joe could bend their arms inward and outward, adding more realistic movement and a better way to hold accessories. This was such a great improvement that Hasbro re-released all of their 1982 figures with these new joints.
