During the Adventure Team years, the basic construction of the original GI Joe figure had not changed much since the line's launch in 1964. Small changes like life-like hair and kung-fu grip had been added, but the figure was more or less unchanged for about 10 years.

In 1975, with the Adventure Team line losing steam and oil costs rising, GI Joe was becoming expensive and complex for Hasbro to produce. After the threat of canceling the line and a groundswell of fan support (that included a letter writing campaign that flooded Hasbro's offices with mail), GI Joe was redesigned with a more cost-effective ''Life Like Body''. This custom is a nod to that footnote in GI Joe's history.
