Wet-Suit has just never looked like a combat diver to me. That’s not really a complaint, because I’m not always hung up on military realism with GI Joe. Ever since I bought Torpedo back in 1983, I’ve been a fan of the diver figures. Though they’re limited in use on land, the appeal of the More >
I’ve been a bad GI Joe blogger, in terms of cataloging all of the various accessories included with the figures I cover. I suppose I could make excuses, and say that I’m not supposed to be an exhaustive guide site, like Yojoe.com or a type of online museum like 3DJoes. Of course, I am neither of More >
We’re officially into summer here in the US, and it’s been getting really hot around my neck of the woods lately, so why not break out a figure photo that I took in the dead of winter and write about it? It’s kind of like eating an ice cream cone after playing basketball in the driveway all day in More >
While the name doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue, Night Creeper Leader is one of the more memorable looking late Real American Hero line Cobras. There’s no mistaking just what part of the venerable vintage small Joe line he hails from. The man apparently likes the color orange.

The original Sailor Suit Shipwreck is a very cool and iconic GI Joe figure, but not really representative of a navy fighter that you can use in a ground combat situation.

Let’s get this out of the way first. There’s one element of this figure that I’m sure is going to offend some people. It’s something that I don’t think you’d expect to see in a children’s toy. Well, at least not now. Maybe in the 90s it was still acceptable, but if you tried something like it in More >
The final assortment of the Real American Hero era included some unsung figures that transcend their 90s origin. That decade at times gets some unfair derision among collectors. While there were a large amount of ridiculous and strange ideas going on, with every sort of sub-team and action feature More >
Well, I really really thought I was done with the snow themed figures a few days ago. Along came spring, and along with it, another snow storm. For the occasion, I broke out another fella in white. This time it’s the second version of Iceberg.
In 1993, I was fully into GI Joe and action figure More >
Part of the Battle Corps series, his claim to fame with collectors comes from a variation. This figure, More >
Originally the driver of the Arctic Blast, Windchill was thrown in with another cold weather vehicle, the Blockbuster, late in the Real American Hero era. The most impressively large of the GI Joe snow vehicles, it boasted an incredible salvo-firing missile launcher, and was quite a good vehicle More >
