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…

Hot Toys 1/6 Millennium Falcon Replica HUGE!! #starwars, #hottoys, #Millenniumfalcon

This is crazy. Hot Toys just recently released to market a 1/6 scale complete Millennium Falcon Cockpit for displaying their amazing Han Solo and Chewbacca figures. http://watchtowergeeks.com/2014/09/hot-toys-amazing-han-solo-and-chewie-16-figures-star-wars-chewbacca-hottoys/ Now just because they can they have constructed a full 1/6 scale Millennium Falcon. Holy WOW!!! I doubt that Hot Toys will actually be marketing these to sell, but even though they would cost a fortune there would be a few Star Wars fans out there that have the money, *cough George Lucas cough* If only I had an extra room to keep…

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…

Weekly Watch: National Museum of Play, #familytime, #toyhalloffame, #strongmuseum #vintagetoys, #gijoe

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: Kenner Super Powers Collection #superpowers, #justiceleagueofamerica, #superfriends

Well, now that the holidays are over, it’s back to business. This week’s Forgotten Friday is all about one of the coolest toy lines from my childhood: Kenner’s Super Powers Collection.   I remember seeing an advertisement on the back cover of a comic book I had as a kid and immediately had to have the whole collection, especially Flash! The line consisted of all of the major DC Comics heroes and villians as well as a few hardly known characters. There were three series released all over the period…
