As a lover of all things G.I. Joe, it was a super fun treat when frequent Robot’s Pajamas contributor Chris Piers began coming up with slogans and jingles for completely ridiculous G.I. Joe vehicles. Even better, since Chris is an artist he made one of inventions come to life. I approached several other artists [...]
What are the ten top G.I. Joe vehicles and playsets? I know that question is driving you into a mad frenzy. Look, put that shard of glass down and I’ll tell you!
This list is a bitter different than the usual top ten G.I. Joe toys of all time type lists, because the [...]
This summer I’ve managed to find a few big G.I. Joe scores via the magic of Craigslist. My most recent find was a pretty damned good one. So good that I thought I’d brag it up!
For the last few months I looked on Craigslist about once per week in the garage [...]
The story of the G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero Adventure Board Game! is a story of mystery. I have no idea where this game came from. Its been in my family for as long as I can remember, but it wasn’t mine originally. I think it was at my Grandfather’s house for the [...]

I’m still on a collecting low thanks to tough finances and space considerations, so it’s far less often that I manage to pick something up that is toy related. Thanks to some Christmas cash I was able to get my hands on some stuff I’ve had my eye on for awhile, so I went [...]
For today’s Toy Hunt I’d like to focus on a recent Star Wars purchase. I’ve tried to back away from buying new Star Wars and G.I. Joe figures, but this was a needed exception. One of the background Jedi characters that I’ve latched onto is Barriss Offee. Why? She’s a hot Indian Jedi [...]
In 2008 Hasbro fulfilled the dreams of many toy collectors by releasing Indiana Jones toys, which coincided with the theatrical release of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Instead of being a smash hit, the line lasted about a year and then was gone. This post attempts to explain just how [...]
As a public service to the ladies out there, I thought I’d let you in on the latest SDCC 2011 Exclusive announcement that may tickle your fancy, the SDCC Exclusive My Little Pony. The theme of the SDCC Exclusive My Little Pony toys for the last couple of years has been that of [...]
