GI joe Feb. 26 2009
By BENNY63 - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This GI JOE book is alright for basic information and pictures of the figures and accessories available. I wish it had more detailed info about each piece and more pricing options. Other than that it is a good book.

Format: Paperback
The Warman's G.I. Joe Field Guide is not a comprehensive, all-encompassing guide to G.I. Joe figures. Writer Karen O' Brien makes this clear in the introduction. Rather, this small (5" by 4") book serves as a convenient, pocket guide to G.I. Joe figures and accessories and includes hundreds of clear, vibrant photographs. It's the kind of book you can pack along easily when you travel to garage sales, flea markets, or collectibles shows. While it may not be exhaustive, there is still a lot packed into its 512 pages. O' Brien provides a brief history of the figure line and the opening section of photos display the various copyright marks and facial and uniform variations on the early figures.

Some figures are show loose while others are show still in their original boxes. For pricing purposes, only a MIP price is given. Another plus is that O'Brien provides the Hasbro item number for the figure (although not accessory sets). Some of the rarest Joe figures are pictured including the Soldiers of the World sets, the rare Canadian Mountie Sears figure, and the Action Girl G.I. Nurse, valued at $4000, perhaps the rarest figure of all. The various adventure sets were always my favorite as a kid and the book includes photos of these great sets including the Secret of the Mummy's Tomb, White Tiger Hunt, and Fight for Survival dog sled set. You know I still have those plastic husky dogs over thirty years later!

The first 380 pages of the book are dedicated to the original G.I. Joe line while the last 130 pages are given over to the 3 ½" line. Only figures are pictured for the 3 ½" line, no vehicles or accessories are included. As a basic, carry along guide it serves its purpose well to provide some guidelines for pricing and identification. You can get more comprehensive guides but this fills the bill for being compact and inexpensive.

Don't bother March 17 2006
By Ernest Gerardot - Published on
Format: Paperback
This guide is very incomplete! It only has the basic figures and uniforms only up to the 1990's even though it just came out in print in 2006.
Mostly early GI Joes. Small, palm size. Not inclusive of all Joes, but worthwhile purchase for me. Dec 2 2013

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is valuable for some items. It is not inclusive of all the GI Joes, but it is a worthwhile purchasing seeing how so few books out there will actually cover everything made GI Joe. It is a small book, palm size, something you can carry in a purse, backpack of large jacket pocket. All the pages are glossy and in color. It covers about one page per item. It covers mostly the early GI Joes. It does show figures outside the box and the boxed sets and shows values for mint figures and sets.
Overall, for us it was a worthwhile purchase to help us judge pricing and value of GI Joes.
Nice Compact Guide Aug. 28 2013

I knew going in that this wasn't going to be the "be all and end all" of GI Joe guide books, but it is nicely put together and full of photographs that will help you identify that big box of loose GI Joe accessories that you just found in the attic or stumbled across at a yard sale. Armed with that knowledge, it's much easier to search online and find out all the accessories that are supposed to come with the sets.
