    Justin,

    Great site, I am also a 30 something collector rediscovering the G.I. Joes I had when I was a kid. Thanks for the really great reviews and photos.

    I bought the Firefly vs. Storm Shadow comic pack after reading your review. I agree 100%, this is a must have set. One thing I noticed, the sheath on StormShadow’s left leg with “nothing that fits” in it, this is actually straight from page 13 of the included comic. Storm Shadow reaches for a spare uzi clip and notices that it’s missing from there.

    Thanks again for the great site and the excellent review. It’s one of my favorites.

    -Stan

    While I dislike the look and design of every 25th style figure and do not collect them at all, I will buy a Firefly/Storm Shadow comic pack based solely on your review. It’s mainly due to their cool accessories, especially the backpacks.

    Great pictures! Keep up the good work!
