GI Joe Birthday Marked at Military Museum

SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. - Capital Region G.I. Joe collector Tearle Ashby and fellow action figure enthusiasts display hundreds of vintage to recent G.I. Joe action figures here at the New York State Military Museum as part of the program to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of G.I. Joe. Ashby also led a discussion about the origins of the toy's development from Hasbro. The action figure, first unveiled to toy buyers at the 1964 Toy Fair in New York City, led to decades of child's play with the 12" and later 3 3/4" figures. Portions of Ashby's collection has been on display at the museum since December 2012 as part of the "Toys and Tanks" exhibit, due to come down in March 2013.
