This section attemps to include all known variations in United States G.I.
Joe products. For the purpose of clarity, a variation here refers to
a change in the same release of a figure or toy (even when it is available
in multiple kinds of packages). As such, international versions are not included
here (while variations within an international version are). For more
information on international figures and vehicles, check out the International
section of Yojoe.com.
Note that many figures have odd paint mistakes to them. Typically a highlight
on the figure is not painted - ie - a holster, eyebrows, kneepad, etc. Because
it is not possible to determine how many of such cases exist (or to decide
how many errors would constitute a variation), these paint errors are not
included in this list. The exception to this is when the change is intentional
and/or permanent (as with many 1994 figures and the 2002 Cobra
Viper), indicating that a production change was made rather than a production
mistake. Paint errors can still be quite interesting and as such are archived
in the Production Errors section below.
Please email us should you know of any variations
not listed here. Be sure to send a photo if possible. Also let
us know if you have any pictures of items we don't have images for.
Please understand that sometimes what may seem like a variation is actually
a foreign release, factory sample, production error, or otherwise. Because
of this, care is taken to verify any variations submitted. This is sometimes
why there might be some delay in reported variations being added. We do appreciate
your contributions! Please keep them coming and take a look at the "Possible
Variations" section to see if you can help confirm someone's discovery.
