The Year of Joe - March 2020

Kind of a slow month for Joe - mostly because of virus quarantines and some other issues. I did manage to get some of my favorite characters that I never had as a kid.

I picked up Airborne, Recondo, Mutt and Junkyard, Duke, Low Light, Air Tight, Alpine, and one Cobra...good old Croc Master without a croc.

And oh yeah - found this guy in my garage....in the back of a 1:18 scale M113. He was in the back which was filled with styrofoam peanuts. This is probably the last original Joe I purchased in the 80s.

And yes, Iceberg does not belong in the desert, but I might as well finish the photo shoot.

Returning to My Roots During Quarantine - A Kenner Star Wars Custom Jigsaw Puzzle

This blog originated with my custom action figure diorama puzzles. Been awhile since I converted a photo into a jigsaw puzzle. I actually took these photos about two months ago. Now that we are sheltering in place, I placed an order for a few of my photos at www.createjigsawpuzzles.com.

This is the first of three. Will probably order more depending on how long this quarantine goes.

By the way, here are the first two entries for this blog:

The puzzle is 18"x24", made with high quality cardboard and glossy print. 

The Image Box that CreateJigsawPuzzle shipped it in.

Latest Star Wars Black Series - Rise of Skywalker and Two Fan Favorites from the Prequels

Just received the latest set of Black Series figures.  I was really anticipating Zorii and the Knight of Ren figures. Hasbro needs to make the other five Knights. Was also nice to see Count Dooku and Commander Bly join the collection. Zorii and the Jet Trooper were double packed.
