Just wanted to give a heads up on something I wrote. I was asked by Jay Cochran of ToyNewsi.com to put something together on the current status of G.I. Joe. I’ve discussed it a couple of times on Twitter along with some fellow collectors, but this is something more in-depth, more than Twitter’s 140 character limitation will allow.
Let me preface it by saying, G.I. Joe is my favorite line from the ’80s. For me there was nothing better. Sure I collected other things as a kid, but G.I. Joe was it. So to see the current status of the line is kind of sad, but at the same time I think it has had a 30 plus year run at retail. That is truly impressive by most standards.
So head on over to TNI and read my editorial piece, “G.I. Joe is dead, long live G.I. Joe” and let me know what you think, either in the comments section there, or here, just below. Thanks, I look forward to hearing what you think.
