Just Joe-in, Custom GiJoe Comics, Digitally or Printed. #justjoe-in, #gijoe, #adventureteam

I figured this was a great place to feature my friend’s work. Angelo not only collects and customizes 1/6 scale figures; he also makes custom comic books using pictures he has taken of his figures. His building skills are not easily matched and he is magic with a camera. Angelo’s work has also been featured as window displays for a local store in his hometown. How did all of this start? “The comics came about after I had made a ten foot bridge using bamboo garden stakes…boy was that a…

Vintage Toy Commercials #GIJOE, #MEGO, #STARWARS, #MASK, #SMDM

I am a huge fan of vintage toy commercials. Back when the toys were used instead of cartoon or CGI versions of the toys. These commercials gave us a start to adventures and missions that would last for weeks. Here are few commercials I found on You Tube.  Of course my favorites are the old Gi Joe Commercials.What toy lines or commercials did you love as a kid?

Just Joe-In Jellystone Park style, #justjoe-in, #GiJoe, #JellystonePark

My family and I took a short vacation over Memorial Day Weekend and spent two beautiful nights in Jellystone Park, in North Java, NY. My good friend Joe came along for the weekend but being as busy as I was, grilling and relaxing, I didn’t have time to go out with Joe anywhere; We were hoping to go exploring for awhile. Luckily my son and daughter stepped in and decided to take Joe out for some fun and show him around a little bit. I believe my 9yr old son…

Forgotten Friday, Just Joe-in, #justjoe-in, #gijoe, #NASA

Welcome to this week’s Forgotten Friday, been a few Fridays since our last one! Sorry, we’ll have to do better! This week’s Forgotten Friday is another edition of Just Joe-in. A couple of months ago my best buddy, my son asked me to get him a GiJoe Astronaut, He loves Space! So I began the hunt, I couldn’t find a single Joe Astronaut for a reasonable price. I didn’t want to pay collector’s price for something he was ultimately going to play with until it falls apart. I decided to…

Forgotten Friday, Paper Football, #geekdad, #football, #tabletopgames

This past Sunday we had my Daughter’s 12th birthday party at my in law’s house. My daughter had a few friends over, of course, and my son had a friend over as well. After the party’s festivities were done, candles blown out, cake eaten, and presents opened, my son and his friend wanted the girls to play hide and seek. The girls wanted no part of this as they were busy with, uh…whatever little girls do…. I was sitting at the big oak dining room table digesting birthday cake that…

Over this past weekend I took my family to the National Museum of Play, formerly the Strong National Museum of Play, in Rochester, NY. It’s about an hour and 45 minutes from where I live. This was the second time I have been. The place is an amazing place filled with everything a kid and a a big kid love. There is a mini Wegman’s Grocery store, kids get to fill their mini carts up with groceries and then cash out at the mini registers. It’s all fake food but…

Forgotten Friday! The awesome MEGO company. #mego, #Forgotten Friday #DC, #marvel

Man, do I remember how awesome the MEGO company was. That company had licenses to more characters than any other I think. They had Happy Days, Laverne and Shirley, Marvel, DC, Tarzan, Planet of the Apes, Dukes of Hazzard, Star Trek, the list could go and on. I grew up playing with the Pocket Size Super Heroes And the other DC and Marvel figures from their World’s Greatest Super Heroes line:  I loved my HULK figure! Star Trek, was popular line and is still wanted by the Trekkies! I remember…
