   If you, like I, grew up in the early 70’s, then you are probably well acquainted with these stalwart fellows. The G.I. Joe Adventure Team took Joe from his Military roots to a  seeker of danger. I loved this line. I grew up with this line. It wasn’t until Star Wars came out that I had a love for an extensive franchise on a large scale such as this. Joe AT had a shared, cohesive, story. Mego, arguably the biggest line of characters, didn’t offer a singular voice. Adventure Team did that, and more. Head over to Plaid Stallions to check out the great toys from years gone by.

   What the heck does that even mean? Well since becoming employed full time again, I have been slowly re-acquiring my collection, not so much comic books that I had to sell, but the toys that I grew up with.

I look at things as “how many HOURS of labor will this thing cost me?”. Considering I am not in my actual field of work and I don’t really enjoy what I do, it is a valid mark for if an item has any worth for me. It doesn’t help that I live in an area that isn’t the best for swap-meets or other avenues that some have for great bargains.
