Last year, during the recording of my annual podcast, reader Clutch threw down a challenge to me. While he’s been impressed with my ability to pique his interest in some figures he hadn’t previously considered likeable, he wondered if I could convince him that GI Joe Extreme as a toy line could be More >
Rob here first, with a quick intro. With all the excitement over Kickstarter projects of late, I thought I’d bring to light another cool fan project inspired by GI Joe. Flag Points’ Dave has put together what could very well be the next step in action figure evolution. Presenting the Klothespin More >

The Slaughter’s Marauders sub-team was a big part of my childhood. Between the two of us, my brother and I had the entire group, which was pretty unusual. Plus, it allowed me to get access to some figures (like Mutt & Junkyard) who I liked from the cartoon but missed the original More >
