The line of action figures included one for Zartan the Swamp Master, a villain who was a master of disguise and who could camouflage himself like a chameleon. The action figure had photoreactive "skin" that would turn blue when exposed to direct sunlight, as did his vehicle. In the animated series, Zartan was allergic to sunlight and would be weakened when exposed to it, which also turned his skin blue. However, the figure was taken off the shelves late in 1986.

I love this series. I developed an interest in it a couple of years ago and I've loved it ever since. THe battle between Joe and Cobra is very entertaining with colourful characters on both sides. I first saw the show when I was a kid. That was when the show was named ACTION FORCE in the UK. I now have the movie on video and the first half of Season One on DVD. The show has not disappointed me so far.
There's great voice work from 80s voice maestros like Chris Latta and Neil Ross. The humour in the show is very appealing as well as there are constantly petty power struggles in the Cobra ranks. Perhaps the introduction of Serpentor wasn't such a good idea, but the show still had good moments. I heard a rumour that there may be a real life GI JOE movie. I hope there will be. If it's based on the Devil'a Due comic that would be good because what I've seen of that comic is great. Here's hoping.
