Kre-ating a New Obsession

When I first started collecting G.I.Joes again in 2009, one thing I told myself was that I would only collect the action figures and stay away from getting any of the vehicles and play sets. I did this for 2 reasons, one to obviously keep my spending down, and secondly because I really didn’t have the display space for a Dragonfly or a Terror Drome. And so that’s how it went, my G.I.Joe action figures grew in number and I managed to keep any vehicle purchases to a minimum (hey, I’m only human). Everything was good….until Hasbro decided to launch their G.I.Joe Kre-o line. Bastards.

Going Kre-azy

I’ve always loved Legos. As a kid, Legos were the first toys my dad really got me into. Every time he would go off on a business trip abroad, which was quite often, he would always bring home a new Lego set or two for me. Fast forward years later though, when I started seriously collecting toys again, I purposely stayed away from getting back into Legos. I did this for one main reason; they’d become so damn expensive!
