Happy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving... like everyone I have a lot to be thankful for. I have my family, a house, a job, and my drivers license again. Unlike many people I didn't really sustain any damage from Hurricane Sandy and I am thankful of that. I decided to post this photo from Christmas many years ago. I'm thankful for my supportive family (and those awesome Christmas presents we used the get. ha ha)

My Grandmother would always give my mom money to buy us a present from her. My mom always used the money to get us the best present each year. This particular year (1986 I believe) I got the GI Joe Tomahawk Helicopter and my Sister got the Castle LovelyLocks from Lady Lovely Locks.

To this day the Tomahawk is my favorite GI Joe toy. It doesn't hurt that my Dad is a helicopter mechanic. The Tomahawk is based on a combination of the S-61 (which my Dad works on) and the Chinook.


  1. Happy Thanksgiving Kevin to you and your family my friend. : )

  2. Happy TG Kev!That Tomahawk looks soooo friggin' cool man!Good times ;)

  3. Sadly, I don't have any pics like these. So, I love seeing them from other collectors. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

  4. Thats one that escaped me. I want it to this day, may have to pony up and buy one soon !
