My submission to this month's Planet Pulp gallery show: [link]
G.I. Joe wasn't very big over here in the UK (I think it was called Action Force over here) but I do remember the cartoon getting some air time and I loved it.
I even remember joining the Action Force club, saved up my pocket money and sent away from my secret agent pack or whatever it was called, and getting my own Action Force codename IRON EAGLE. I was thrilled.
A few months later at a family get together, I found out one of my cousins was also a member of the Action Force team! His codename was IRON EAGLE too
I was heartbroken.
