Larry Hama is known as the "father" of the 3 3/4" Gi Joe figures (he had nothing to do with the 12" Gi Joe of the 1960-1970s). Larry came up with the names for the figures, vehicles and wrote the filecards that came on the back of the cards. He also wrote all 155 issues of the Gi Joe comic book which spanned from June 1982 to December 1994.
