Stuart Wells and Jim Main did a great job on this book -- the pages are chock full of wonderful photos and great information. Although action figures have never been my strong suit, I checked out the Masters of the Universe figures immediately -- I wonder if my nephew still has all the figures we raced around finding for him in the 1980s. GI Joe was always a guilty pleasure for me -- soldiers weren't the thing when I was growing up during the Vietnam War, but I always thought he'd make a better date for my Barbie than that wimp Ken!
