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…

Gi Joe Adventure Team- “Just Joe-In”, #gijoe, #adventureteam, #justjoe-in,

At least once a week I am going to create a post featuring Gi Joe. I am calling it “Just Joe-In” That kind of came about from my wife asking me one day what I was doing and as I was cleaning a vintage Joe, I said “Oh, I’m just Joe-in around.” I just wanted to upload a few pics of a new GiJoe Adventure Team figure I put [contentblock id=1 img=code.png]together. This figure is a Hasbro 40th Anniversary head (repro of original), a super poseable GiJoe modern body, and…

Forgotten Friday: Gi Joe Atomic Man Mike Powers, #gijoe, #atomicman, #bionicman, #adventureteam

Forgotten Friday: 14 November 2014. At the end of the original Gi Joe run, Hasbro tried to stay current with some often ill -received concepts. The Adventure Team and reignited life into the Gi Joe line after the Vietnam War had slowed the sales of the military versions of Joe. Joe became a Jungle Explorer , a Desert Survivalist, a Treasure Hunter, and had many run ins with often undersized vicious animals! In the mid 70s due to the increase popularity of Bionics, thanks to the Six Million Dollar Man…

Hey, Hey I wanna be a Flock Star, Re-Flocking Vintage Gi Joes, #GiJoe, #AdventureTeam, #flockedheads

Have ya ever thought about reflocking an old Gi Joe Adventure Team Figure? Well if you answered yes, then read on my friend!! I grew up in the 70s and 80s and my fascination with Gi Joe started when I was very young. My brother had many of the Adventure Team figures and stuff and I received a very few at the very end of the AT line. I was so obsessed with the Gi Joes that for many years growing up I thought you had to have a bread…
