G.I. Joe Complete Collector’s Set

gi-joe-collectors-set

Truth be told, I still feel a ways that Roadblock, one of the few African-American “Joes,” spoke in rhyme. However, G.I. Joe was still a after-school staple during my formative years. Besides Transformers and Thundercats, and Video Music Box, of course.

Therefore this G.I. Joe Complete Collector’s set will be at the top of many an 80’s baby’s wish lists. Besides every episode of the G.I. Joe cartoon spread out over 17 DVDs, the set includes the PSA’s [“And knowing is half the battle.”], a 1GB flash drive/dog-tag, a pair of comics and other goodies. All kept neatly in an Army green foot locker.

Hopefully being old enough to remember watching the cartoon on the television means you grew up and got a job. The set costs $145. [Spotted at Uncrate]

Transformers Flash Drive

HAS12882Wow! I remember having this Ravage Decepticon (but it transformed into a cassette tape, back then) when I was a kid. OG Transformers fans will remember Ravage and Laserbeak as the Decepts (no relation to the Brooklyn hard rocks [II]) Soundwave would “eject.” Word is pre-orders on the flash drive above are already sold out.

Anyway, what better reason than to post The Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen trailer which I will surely be watching like a giddy little schoolboy on June 24 in front of an IMAX screen.
