1964 was significant for me as well. I was in a place called Guam. My family was stationed there between 1963 and 1965. A few months after we arrived there; President Kennedy was killed and the torch that had been passed to a new generation seemed to fade. I remember that day like it was yesterday. One of my most vivid memories from Guam was watching B-52s take off for Vietnam.
I only have one Joe in my collection that I owned when I was a kid and he is not my first, he was one of my last, a fuzz head. But he has been with me now for about forty years. It is hard to tell what will happen in the future as far as the hobby goes. A lot of things cycle. I sort of believe that as long as there is a Hasbro, there will always be a GI Joe in some sort of form. I don't know if we will ever see our 12 inch buddies again though.
Well, next time we will look back at DML and some of the early Dragon stuff, which will conclude my "Look Back" week. Until then, have a good one!
