Random pictures

Just some random pictures...

Some Cobra Troopers observe GI Joe activity off in the distance.

Flint's SkyHawk is downed by enemy fire and he waits for his pick up.

Rebel Pilot signals the rescue ship while his patient R5 unit waits.

Classic goodness - my two surviving "Heroes in Action" figures from the 70's.

Wall-E just wants some new friends, but they just walk by, ignoring him.

Watch the Exclusive Trailer for '2012'


Friendship 7 Mercury Space Capsule - Yard Sale Goodness!

I stumbled upon this today at a yard sale. It's from a Timeless Collections set that was released exclusively at KayBee Toys back around 2000. It's a little banged up, but still in decent shape. The kid had a tub full of mangled, mutilated 1/6th GI Joes that was just a sad spectacle to behold.

Here's the beauty of today's find - I asked the kid how much? 50 cents! Sweet!

G.I. Joe: Resolute - Duke

Duke has long been a less than favorite character of many GI Joe fans. Most of his original versions always had that same grinning goofy headsculpt. Not the look for one of the most widely made figures throughout the history of the G.I. Joe:A Real American Heroes characters.

The new animated version of Duke in "G.I. Joe: Resolute" took the bland, blah Duke and made him into a serious bad-ass. The toy version kicks butt as well. One of the best figures of the new 25th style figures.

Duke deals with the new Resolute Cobra Trooper, another outstanding new figure from the G.I. Joe line.

Beach Head gets the Resolute treatment courtesy of the unmasked Beach Head sculpt and an extra Resolute Duke body.

Duke steels himself, as Cobra troopers block his only way out. Lego has amazing uses!

My Resolute team grows - (from left to right) - Clutch, Flint, Duke, Beach Head, and Rock n Roll.

A lucky shot knocks out Flint's SkyHawk and his rescuers finally show up.

Resolute Duke gets a spin as a 1/6th scale version. Not the same as the 3 3/4" version, but it gets the idea across.
