Toy Commercial Tuesday: G.I. Joe Ninja Force

I love this commercial. First of all, it’s kind of awesome to see a toy-accurate live action Destro on screen as well as some of the ninjas that made their way into my toy collection. Speaking of my collection, this ad features several figures I actually had as a kid. For me, G.I. Joe was kind of a transitional toy while things like Transformers and He-Man went away, Joe was still around and kept me going through Ninja Turtles and into my Toy Biz Marvel obsession. In the early 90s, the lines were full of gimmicks that seem silly now, but were a lot of fun if you were 9 years old. I mean, who doesn’t love ninjas and gliders? You put those together and you’ve got a hit on your hands.
