Reason: add picture
I never got into Joe till 2005, but after that (and seeing my first episodes of the original cartoon, Worlds Without End Parts 1 and 2), I found my favorite Joe figure to be Barbecue. When I was little, I was really into firefighters (even had my 5th birthday at a fire station). So when I got my first Barbecue figure, it brought back a lot of memories. (Also, I really like his characterization.)
My very first Joe toys were a Python Conquest (which I won in a school drawing) and I can remember going to Osco in Memphis at like age three and buying an Undertow. I still have that undertow and his flippers lol. It is the only figure I still have from childhood having sold everything else several years back. So I guess Undertow is my answer. I found a moc Undy last year for $8 at a rummage sale
1984 Hooded Cobra Commander. We grew up kinda poor and I remember saving for him, filling out the order and sending it off. A few weeks later he arrived in that awesome little card board box. Awesome day!
Well I think my original Stalker got played with the most. I grew up in a house that was purchased by my family in the early seventies. They bought it from a guy that had owned a carpet store. So the downstairs was covered in this green, black, and white shag. And when I say "downstairs" I also mean "down the stairs". It was also about 5 feet up the stair well. So my cousin and I would always hide Stalker in it and if you found him you got to re-hide him. Sometimes he'd be lost for weeks. Heck, for all I know he's still there.
Favorite Cobra's are probably a tie with Night-Viper and Alley-Viper. They looked so intimidating and just badd.
