Here are two carded GI Joe items I picked up at It's a Toy Show over the weekend. I already have both items loose, but I'm having fun building up a collection of carded items as well. I enjoy the packaging. First up is M. Bison from the Street Fighter II sub-set of GI Joe. I now have a collection of four carded Street Fighters including Ryu, Chun Li, and Blanka. M. Bison's figure never had the bulk and stature I really wanted out of a figure of this character.The package is in pretty nice shape. There is a small ding in the bottom corner.
When Hasbro first started cranking out these Marvel Comic 3-Packs in the mid two thousands I was so excited. O-Ring figures with new head sculpts based on the classic Larry Hama comics! I still remember starring at my computer screen so much my eyes started to hurt when the images of the first couple packs were released online. I picked up a carded copy of this pack because it is without a doubt the most famous issue from the GI Joe: A Real American Hero run. The red ninja in the pack is not very comic accurate. I guess they didn't want to tool up a new head for him as well as Snake-Eyes.
