What I always thought was weird was that some of the toys had specific laser troopers, like Flash, Sci Fi, and the Laser Viper, while in the cartoon, everyone used lasers.

And really, THIS is what bothered you the most about the original GI Joe series? Not the fact that no one died, or that everyone chose to parachute out of their planes before they were even hit, or that Duke and Flint openly fraternized with their subordinates, or that for some crazy reason, Destro, despite being smarter, stronger and more competent than Cobra Commander, still took orders from him? (When I first started watching the series, before I understood enough English, I actually thought that Destro WAS the boss.)
Nah, is just one thing that bothers me, but I'm also bothered by the points you've given out as well (zero body count, magic parachutes, etc.). Thanks for pointing that out. I'd rather like to watch Transformers since their weapons exactly hit each other.
