    Observations about scale 🧐

    At one time or another I tried to display a 1/6 Stuart tank, the 1/6 M3 White scout car and a couple Hasbro jeeps. My wife didn’t think that was a good idea. I still have a RC Stuart tank that needs repair and the jeeps as well out in the shed. Unfortunately I sold the white scout car because...

    Observations about scale 🧐

    I was born in the early 60’s and grew up with the original GI Joe and army men. My dad was in the army and I loved anything military. I got too big for toys about 12-13 when my dad introduced me to hunting and my brother inherited my toys. I got married and joined the army at the age of 18 and...

    Observations about scale 🧐

    All of my 1/32 is packed up in the shed. A lot of it is from the 60’s to 70’s stuff, Airfix, Marx, Werner, Timmee, etc… I scarfed up some 21st century armor and a few other pieces but all these will have to wait for the boys to get older. I think 7 to 10 years old is the best age range for toy...

    Observations about scale 🧐

    I have two grandsons, one is 4 1/2 and his older brother is almost 6. For Christmas I got them both 4 inch GI Joes from the retro collection and also one each of the 6 inch Joes (Duke & Flint) They already had some 1/18 scale and GI Joe vehicles like the awe striker and other brands that fit 4...

    Been sick all week and it was warm enough to sit on the back porch and take a couple photos while enjoying the fresh air. I also had to dust off this nasty thing 😑

    Anybody still collecting SW on here?

    Those prices for an overgrown flesh eating gopher are enough to choke a sarlacc pit monster.

    Anybody still collecting SW on here?

    What is the deal with this stuff? I went and looked at the skystriker thinking about supporting it until I learned how much they wanted. If I wanted to spend that Much I would buy a 21st century toys plane off of eBay 😉

    Super 7 GI Joe

    Okay, I see what you mean, I zoomed in on the joints. I wish they were 1:18 scale so I could use the head sculpts but I don’t have any use for 7” figures in my banana republic.

    Super 7 GI Joe

    Those headsculpts are great but scale is a problem for my collection, and the only 5POA figures I have are ones I got in the 1970’s. Not interested in 5 POA big scale but let them release those sculpts on 1:18 figures and I’ll jump in.

    I hope where I’m at is rural enough. We have good trustworthy people in our area and it’s a good 45 miles to a big town (Petersburg). I’m hoping when it breaks down that our rural leadership, Sheriffs, judges, mayors and county officials can pull together a cohesive government to protect our...

    Not without a lot of bloodshed I’m afraid. I’m getting too old and broke down to get pulled into the military but I worry about my grandsons and what evils they’ll have to face. I’ll probably get a train south to a quiet little village where the people are friendly when it boils over.

    On the Workbench

    Hey fellas, since this thread was for items on our workbench, I thought I’d ask if anyone knew of any customizers that made the shoulder joints in good plastic for Joy Toys 1:18 female figures like the Legion 45 girl? I’ve had two separate figures break the shoulder joint with slight movements...
