    Amazing Art from the 80's. This series collects the packing art from G.I. Joe, and it is wonderful. The posters and the books are high quality. The Foil covers are awesome. The content of this book covers the G.I. Joe package art from 1984-1985.

    Volume 2 really sums up a good few years of my childhood. Covers all the toys I had or wanted and brought back tons of memories of the good years. Interactive blue stars take you to the website for more info, which is a nice touch.
  • Beautifully designed and presented

    By severedjon
    Fans of GI Joe or 80s toys will love this look at the painted art of GI Joe from 84 and 85. The presentation is uncluttered by extraneous text, leaving the art to be showcased. A great feature is clicking on the blue stars on each page to get more information on each piece from the 3dJoes website. Also, besides the obvious box and card art, art featured in the inserts or books are also presented. I can't wait for future volumes to be released!
  • Great collection of packages
