Playing Detective

I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before, but one of the things I love best about updating the YoJoe archives is adding in all the various merchandising that featured the archive figure or vehicle. It’s also the most frustrating – outside the toy archives, YoJoe can be a bit scatterbrained when it comes to mentioning what is actually featured. Sometimes it’s mentioned; most times it isn’t. So it’s a bit of a scavenger hunt, tracking down the various ephemera, or scanning in my own. But in the end, it just makes me smile to see so many disparate items come together to showcase one particular toy. It’s why I keep doing it. After all, putting together these sections sometimes takes just as long as photographing and editing the figure or vehicle archive photos!
