REVIEW: GI JOE 25th Anniversary Set - COBRA Legions
There are two types of toy lines for me: Ones I've grown out of and ones I will collect forever. Marvel and DC (in all their forms) will always have a place on my shelf (and my son's). Transformers I loved in the '80s, not so much now. Star Wars had its day with me and Lord of the Rings is over. But G.I. Joe refuses to be categorized. Every time I relinquish it to the "rah rah Reagan" '80s, Hasbro finds a way to pull me back.
This time it's the 25th Anniversary line. I had no compulsion to own yet another Snake Eyes, but the detailing and the promise of the first new 3 3/4" body in 25 years was too tempting to pass up. Like most fans, I grabbed the two box sets as soon as I could find them. I don't have all the single card figures yet, but I'm very happy I've got this new army builder set.
