Mail Call: G.I. Joe V.A.M.P. (1982)

   This came in the mail today, a Hasbro G.I. Joe V.A.M.P. from 1982.

Shogun Warriors: Raydeen

   This last week I received one of my childhood toys in the mail. It was the 24" tall Mattel Shogun Warriors Raydeen. The proper spelling, from the animated show, is Raideen and that is how I'll be referring to the figure. I couldn't believe the condition that it was in. There are more than… Continue reading Shogun Warriors: Raydeen
