O Joe and New Joe - Photo Comparison Part 1

Found my childhood G.I. Joe or O Joe ("Original Joe") and decided to photograph him with one of the newer Joes from 2004. Here are three photos. Yes, the guys are nude - the better for their forms to be seen - but as we all know, they do NOT have discernible penises so the more modest (kof kof) viewers need not be offended.

(Aside: it is my belief that Kens, Joes, and all other male figures have retractable, i.e., modesty penises not visible to the human eye or to cameras. More on this subject to come.)

Dance Joes, Dance!




Joes Sit and Guess Who is More Flexible?

lol - totally love the retractable penis theory - I'm going to have to mention that myself somehow...

Joe is a favorite here, too ;-D
Older ones and newer ones.

Yes, the memo didn't go out - how could the toy manufacturers TELL parents something like that?! LOL WE know better though. Our guys just don't show all.

I only have a repro of the old Joe. I find it hard to keep him in a properly seated position. The elastic band that joins him makes him lay back or straighten up. Does that happen to original Joes?

Yes, that awkwardness seated happens with the older Joes, too. My original Joe will slip back if I don't angle him forward a little AND if I don't use his arms to balance him. Otherwise, he sprawls.
