I’ve covered the legendary Funskool Super Cop figure in the past. Legendary, you say? Well, I believe he is. In fact, I think he dwells in that ratified atmosphere of greatness previously inhabited only by the likes of Big Brawler and Chinese Major Bludd. A highway patrolman who accessorizes with More >
Sometimes I think I’ve been a little too harsh on the modern styled GI Joe figures. I think I’ve alternately called them less playable, and even gone as far as calling them statues. Granted, in many cases, I still stick with those assessments. But there was a time, at the beginning of the Pursuit More >
If my nine year old self could have seen this toy, I think my head would have exploded. There were quite a few characters, locations, vehicles in the Sunbow toon that I had wished to see on toy shelves, but this one would probably have topped my list. The MASS Device mini-series still stands out in More >
Sharing a name with both a small, futuristic one-seat helicopter that appeared in two different versions in 1990, and a desert-camouflaged re-release of the Dragonfly helicopter in 2000, the Locust is the main Joe aircraft of the BTR line.
In its primary mode, the Locust is a small More >
Ever thought about painting your face a la one of the members of the Joe team? I hadn’t, mostly because I can’t remember many of them who did so during my childhood collecting days. I guess there was Dusty in ’85 and Tunnel Rat in ’87, but that was it. Hit & Run got a big feature in this insert, More >
Destro has always been my favorite Joe villain. In the Sunbow series, Cobra Commander always came off as kind of a buffoon, but Destro managed to maintain at least a slight air of menace in his portrayal. It seems regardless of the medium, even if it’s panned by the Joe community, More >
The 1991 series still holds a special place for me as a collector. It was the first set of figures I encountered upon re-entering the world of GI Joe. When checking out the cardbacks, I was excited to see not only some old favorites newly redesigned, but also some new faces. Big Ben was an More >
I’d like to draw your attention today to an old post. I’m still fascinated by this figure, despite its proportion issues. Zartan hadn’t made a departure this far from his norm since the days of Ninja Force. Check him out in all his skullcap glory right here.
From 1994! Okay, okay, I’m sorry for the cheap ploy for views, but couldn’t resist. It’s Toy Fair week, there’s been GI Joe anniversary news, and I’ve been on a Toy Fair catalog kick of late. So what better way to cover a bit of a past Toy Fair catalog than with GI Joe’s last big anniversary More >
Rob here first, with just a quick note. I’m proud to be bringing to you the beginning of a new series of entries by Twitziller. Today, we begin with TZ’s intro to the series, but be on the lookout for the first BTR-Ticle soon, with more to come in the future. But enough of my yakkin’–let’s More >
