Mark Bellomo Talks G.I. Joe, Toys and More

January 25, 2013

If you're a longtime toy collector, add this episode of What's On Joe Mind to your "must listen to" queue. Toy collector and author Mark Bellomo, who's penned  The Ultimate Guide to G.I. Joe 1982-1994Transformers: Identification and Price Guide, Totally Tubular '80s Toys and several other toy collecting guides, joins the WOJM crew in a thought provoking discussion about the influences of societal change on toy collecting. The guys discuss growing up collecting toys, what it takes to make it as a toy line today, and how the G.I. Joe brand must evolve in order to be embraced by future generations. The conversation starts at about 9:20 if you want to scrub right into it. Bellomo, whose collection spans several pop culture eras and many toy lines, was featured on Flophouse Films' Collectable Spectacle series, where he discussed his collecting habits and philosophy on the hobby.
