I don't know much about GI joe but I do feel a slight tingling sensation coming over me since that I know they were part of the transformers storyline.

C'mon, this is a Transformers site. Yeah, I know, G.I. Joe is cool too. There was a connection to the Transformers. I like the Snowcat vehicle in the Energon series, great homage. I actually own the original Snowcat vehicle, I don't think it's complete anymore. I vote Cobra Commander and Serpentor as my top two. I wish they would make Transformers out of G.I. Joe vehicles like what they did with Star Wars. G.I. Joe Transformers would rock.
