I'm not a big 70's G.I.Joe collector, but I do know that they have a problem with knockoffs. I found this quick guide which gives you the basics, but nothing is fool-proof. If you register your Joes at CollectorsProof.com at least you can track the history of the item and know for sure that it is coming from a reputable source.

Cool site. You could substitute any other quality, well-known toy in for G.I. Joe throughout the entire site and the problems would be the same. Counterfeiters monetizing the brand image and hard work of a responsible toy designer/manufacturer.
