I am seriously backed up on G.I. Joe Reviews. I happily subbed to the Joe FSS (& the Joe FSS 2.0) and, so far, only the first month’s figures have made it to the site. Did I mention I have all thirteen? Oops! And here I am reviewing the Membership Joe instead of a subscription Joe... Double Oops!
If I’ve learned anything from moving into my first home, it’s that I’ll be unpacking for the rest of my life. Seriously. Every time I think of an old figure I need for a review, it’s inevitably adrift somewhere in the cardboard sea in my garage. For Dice’s review, that sorta became the theme.
For years, I was strictly a toy forum guy. It was great for news and interacting with my fellow collectors. PoeGhostal.com changed that. Poe’s great reviews & insightful commentary helped inspire me to follow in his footsteps and strike out on my own. I can honestly say there’d be no IAT if not for Poe!
For Joe reviews, can you believe I’m still working off the case of GI Joes my wife bought me for Christmas? If that’s not a sign I need to do more Joe reviews, I don’t know what is! Today, I’ve got a quick review of a Renegades Joe, but I don't consider him one really. Law & Order is more a smart, modern update.
I’ve said this before, but G.I. Joe was easily the biggest toyline from my childhood. I had my fair share of Transformers and MOTU. I treasured my comic-based figures and loved plenty of smaller lines too, but I had a ton of G.I. Joe toys. It was so different from today.
