The battle-hardened Hasbro action figure, which first hit toy shelves in 1964 as the Vietnam War ratcheted up, was picked by visitors to the Children's Museum of Indianapolis' website as the top choice. The original 12-inch soldier, relaunched as a smaller action figure in the 1980s, has captured the imaginations of young children for years.
The museum picked their top 100 toys of the last century and put them up for a vote that 24,000 people participated in.
Here's a detailed vid on the original 1964 Joe and his accessories.
