Equipment: G.I. Joe Classified Series Wave One

The 1980s will be remembered for many things. Questionable fashions (i.e. shoulder pads), wacky hairstyles, great music; this list could go on for a while but the one thing that might only make it on few person’s lists is the return of G.I. Joe. Back in 1964 when G.I. Joe first appeared he was a military man but by the 1970s military toys had fallen out of favor so G.I. Joe changed jobs and joined The Adventure Team. This rebranding of G.I. Joe kept the line going for a few more years but by the end of the decade G.I. Joe disappeared from shelves. Continue reading

Equipment: Iron Giant Action Figure from Diamond Select Toys

Fifteen years before Vin Diesel would voice a giant of few words in Guardians of the Galaxy, he lent his voice to another giant of few words, The Iron Giant.  Set during the height of the cold war The Iron Giant is the story of a boy who befriends a giant alien robot that crashed to Earth. Think E.T. but instead of an alien it is a 50 foot robot. Personally, I may have enjoyed The Iron Giant more than E.T. Continue reading
