Flea Market Hunting : G.I.Joe

After Star Wars my second favourite action figures collection as a kid was G.I.Joe. I was and still am addicted to it! Isaac is slowly getting into the Joe craze. We found two very cool figures at the flea market.

First was Croc Master. He is Cobra's reptile trainer and debuted in 1987. Croc Master is a former alligator wrestler and burglar alarm salesman, who founded Guard-Gators Inc., in an effort to commercialize the use of alligators for home security. He later began to abundantly stock Cobra Island's maze-like system of shallow canals and interconnecting waterways, with ravenously hungry man-eating crocodiles, deliberately conditioning them to be hostile, psychotic and fast.

Next was Stalker.  He is the G.I. Joe Team's original ranger and debuted in 1982. He is one of very few characters from the first line of the toys to have a distinct appearance from the other action figures, as he is African-American. Stalker was a major character in the G.I. Joe comic book series published by Marvel Comics.

We both liked the first film and can't wait for the sequel! Here are some just released posters from the upcoming sequel!
