    Ha! Who’s more excited: Dad or kid?

    Around this same exact time, I saved up and used Xmas money to buy the Cobra base (can’t remember the name). It was circular and had a small plane that came out of the top, if I recall correctly. That thing was awesome.

    You are talking about the Terror Drome.

    That picture is awesome, brings back memories for me!

    Yeah, I love this one. I remember how fun it was to put this stuff together. And the art on all the G.I. Joe boxes was awesome.

    Wow. This was after my GI Joe heyday, but I would’ve totally dug having that a couple of years before. Can never have enough missile launchers or working spotlights. =)
