Good bye Monster High Classrooms, Hello G.I.Joe Bootcamp

Well I must say I will miss collecting Monster High, but I am moving my collector focus over to G.I.Joe. I am saving a small core of my dolls, the rest are going off to better homes. Just as I have my original Classrooms assortment up for auction on Ebay I saw the new Art Class dolls this morning. I get so tempted to buy new dolls, but I don't see myself buying them for more than $20 when I can get two Joes for that price. In all fairness I am better suited to collecting figures over dolls. As some other blogger has pointed out there really isn't a difference, action figures are dolls, and dolls are action figures. So good bye Frankie Stein, Ghoulia Yelps, Lagoona Blue, Clawdeen Wolf, Draculaura...

Hello Zarana and whoever else decides to join my modern ranks. I just got ahold of the Comic Con Zarana from a few years back, really an awesome sculpt. My first Joe figure was Zartan, so his siblings and to a slightly less degree the Dreadnoks are some of my favorite classic characters. Really the years of like 1986 through maybe 1989 or 90 are the favorite parts of the classic line. The accessories were cooler and the figures had more detailed sculpts. I am working on how to actually display my modern and vintage Joe collection, they have spent too much time in boxes. Well, until next time, Yo Joe!
