Captivating Cover: Mountain Attack!

Welcome again as I take a look at a GI Joe book and judge it solely by its cover. Why? Because it’s fun, that’s why. This time, the subject is a Marvel coloring book, entitled Mountain Attack! It looks to be action packed, maybe even in the vein of the opening of a Bond film. …

Barbecue (1985)

Barbecue (1985)

Barbecue is one of the figures that I distinctly remember buying as a kid. It was during one of many family trips to Sears, and most every time we went into the store, and weren’t in a rush, I took a look at the toy aisle. Funny thing, I still do the same when I …

Resolute Flint

Rwsolute Flint

by KansasBrawler I find it kind of amusing that I’ve professed my Flint fandom a few times on this blog, yet I’ve never actually reviewed my favorite modern Flint from the Resolute box set. The Resolute set really showed how impressively customizable the new figure construction could be. Using a bare minimum of new parts, …

Stuart “Outback” Selkirk (2014)

Outback is one of the great figures from the post-86 period. He’s a pretty simply designed type of guy, with a basic t-shirt and camo pants. His head was where much of his personality stemmed. While there were plenty of previous Joes with facial hair, Outback sported a full-on mountain man beard. If you looked …

Amigurumi Destro

Gaze upon the majesty that is Amigurumi Destro! Complete with arm rockets and grenades, and of course, a badass gold chain. Ami-what? Amigurumi. It’s the art of knitting or crocheting small stuffed animals and anthropomorphic creatures. Sure, Destro isn’t a animal or creature, but the point of the style is, obviously, cuteness. The format I …

Ace (2004)

Since the 80s, Ace has been one of those Joe driver (or in this case, pilot) mainstays that you can be sure will make an appearance in whatever current form GI Joe takes. He’s been around for most of the various reboots and scale changes over the decades, even making it into the modern era …

Red Spot pinch hits tonight

Red Spot

Your intrepid blogger has been under the weather of late, so it’s been a bit of a slog to keep up the pace. For tonight, here’s a quick shout out to an old post. There are more than a few figures from the relaunched o-ring years that piqued my interest and kept a bit of …

Tripwire (Funskool)

I normally try have some sort of punchy intro statement when I sit down to write these things, but today, I can only think of two words, folks: Bomb Squad. Bomb. Squad. Is it really any surprise to see such an oddity of a figure coming from the 2000s era of Funskool’s output? After all, …

City Strike Destro

by KansasBrawler I’ve made no bones about my love of Destro. Any of you who have listened to the Second Anniversary Podcast know that. While the Iron Grenadier version remains my favorite, the Pursuit of Cobra City Strike Destro is a very close second. I like being able to use Destro on the battlefield and …

Military Action Figure

Military Action Figure

If you’re like me, and I know I am, you probably mixed your play among action figure lines as a kid. If they were the same scale, I was all over it. Well, to a point. I didn’t cross over Joe and Star Wars too much. I guess I just couldn’t rationalize an AT-AT inhabiting …
