Seems my favorite New York ninja has traded in his sneaks for some leg wraps. What is it with Joe martial artists and their odd footwear? In the meantime since his Ninja Force days, he’s also become the Joe team’s martial arts instructor. Why not have the big guns like Snake Eyes of Storm Shadow More >
What can I write that hasn’t been said about the Dreadnoks, some of the most iconic, colorful and well remembered GI Joe villains of the Real American Hero era? Heck, I’d venture to say they’re some of the most remembered villains of any 80′s property. At least more remembered than the likes More >
In a recent episode of Flag Points, we spoke to former GI Joe marketer Kirk Bozigian about what he felt made the line great during the 80′s, and what could be done to return it to its former glory. Kirk said that in his day, the toyline was marketed in a way that made it seem bigger than in was. In More >
In the 90′s, I frequented the Half Price Store as part of my regular action figure hunting rounds. The store was a sort of close-out seller, much like Big Lots. Back in the early to mid 90′s, they regularly closed out Hasbro and other toy makers’ stock from the previous year. I can still picture More >
When I grabbed this figure up to take photos, I remembered back to the time of its release, and how excited I was to get it. A Flint based on a never before made Sunbow look; should have been a no-brainer great figure, right? Then I remembered how bummed I was when I actually opened it up. Flint More >
So Flint finally got out from under Duke’s smirking shadow, and was assigned to head up the Eco Warriors. He’s not the first person I would think of to lead the group. Airtight would have been my first choice, but he’s not a top tier character like Flint. The file card doesn’t make any ado about More >
Like all of the ’97 Bronze Bomber figures, paint applications are at a minimum. The lack of detail color really strikes me with this figure, since the Strato-Viper mold is so full of detail.
The mold origin also hinders my ability to see this as anything but a repainted Strato. Of all the Joe More >
If there’s one Sigma 6 figure who almost outshines Lt. Stone as my favorite, it’s Lockdown. Coming near the end of the grand experiment that was S6, he stands out for me as an ideal example of the line’s wonderfully toyetic appeal.
First off, he scores points with me for being a brand new More >
I’ve often wondered why Dragonsky is such a favorite among fans of the Oktober Guard. Is it because of his specialty? Is it because he looks so different from his teammates? Is it because his name is a really bad pun?
This Dragonsky, part of the 2005 convention attendee exclusives, definitely More >
