G.I. Joe: Retaliation
Originally posted 05/02/2014 04:20PM
As loyal readers may know, humans just can't stop aging.
But we don't often think about the other kind of aging, the aging of inanimate objects. Though the physical plastic itself doesn't change much – give or take the occasional melting or dismemberment – the passage of time works its magic on beloved toys in different ways.
Some toys become brighter and flashier in their newer models. Others stay basically the same, while making a few concessions to modern trends. And more still change their entire image completely. Check out the iconic toys alongside their modern versions below. Which ones would you prefer to play with?

Making G.I. Joe: Retaliation with Channing Tatum, Bruce Willis and the Rock, Adrianne Palicki was not one to be intimidated – not after all the noises they made.
"I'm more macho than all those guys," the actress, perhaps best known for TV's Friday Night Lights (2006-11), boasts to PEOPLE. "You spend that much time with them – you hear them burp, fart – you immediately become one of the dudes."
Tatum, it seems, also did something even more for the gang.
