Dear Pursuit of Cobra/30th Anniversary toyline,
What a crazy couple of years it’s been. Seems like only yesterday I met you at Joecon in KC, and look how far we’ve come. We’ve both changed since that first meeting; you looked like Channing Tatum, Marlon Wayans and Rachel Nicols, and I was a jaded collector who didn’t think Joe could be interesting after all those dark and boring movie figures. Who knew we would end up with a renaissance of articulation, new designs and accessories? Oh yeah, and don’t forget the greatest Storm Shadow since ’84.
There were a few times when you disappointed me, like when I wouldn’t see you for long stretches, apart from when Arctic Destro would show up alone (and wouldn’t even bother to bring beer.)
Anyway, it’s been fun hanging out and I know you’ve gotta split for the movie line, but dudes, I’m totally gonna miss you. I promised myself I wouldn’t cry <sniff>.
P.S. although Sci-Fi here was our last hurrah (and he totally rocks, once I found him LOL) I look forward to the arrival of new Joe friends in May, even if they do appear to be less articulate than you.
Joe A Day
