I wanted to post something special today and if you know me it will be centered around G.I. Joe. With the vast success of the 25th line and the follow up lines I wanted to showcase what started it all. Most of us know that Joe will be taking a small break but know, they will be back as next year marks the 50th anniversary. What a time we will have as collectors and I hope Hasbro gives us something worthy of such a milestone.
