Awesome education about the world of toy production

If you’re a G.I. Joe fan on Facebook, but are not a member of the G.I. Joe Discussion Facebook group, you are really missing out on some great insight.

Some really fun conversations can be had there, but aside from that, we also get some really great perspective about toy making in general.
