    Introducing the toys of the Dragonfly helicopter, the FANG helicopter, and Major Bludd. Commercial courtesy of Ron Austin.



    Dragonfly Helicopter, version 2

    This commercial features the same visuals as the previous ad, but different narration.



    Skystriker

    Introducing the G.I.Joe Skystriker. Commercial courtesy of Ron Austin.



    G.I.Joe Headquarters

    Introducing the G.I.Joe Headquarters. Commercial courtesy of Ron Austin.



    MOBAT, Dragonfly, VAMP

    Using existing footage from previous commercials and the Sunbow television series, this commercial seems to focus more on the animation than the toys. There is only a brief mentioning of the MOBAT, Dragonfly, and VAMP at the end. Commercial courtesy of Ron Austin.



    Cobra Strike Video Game

    This commercial advertised the Cobra Strike video game. Completely unlike the other G.I. Joe ads from 1983, this commercial features neither Sunbow animation nor children. This is likely due to the fact that the commercial was created under Parker Brothers, at the time a separate and distinct company from Hasbro.
