GI Joe

All my G.I. Joes had the fuzzy head that grew bald over time.  Figure he was exposed to radioactive fallout.  The one with the Kung Fu grip.  Like this:

Other kids in the neighborhood had M1919 machine guns.  Not me.  No BAR that I remember either.  Looking back I had 03 Springfields, Garands, M-16, and scoped sniper rifles. Not even a flamethrower.

I also had the jeep with the recoil-less rifle. It was after Nam so Joe was leaning toward outdoorsy adventure instead of war. Hence the out of regs beard.
