What an honor to be joined by Brian Hickey in this great conversation about one of the Forefathers of GIJoe Adventure Team, Action Man, Action Force, and more. 

Jason and Brian sit down to discuss the ongoing Kickstarter campaign, My Palitoy Story. Bob Brechin, the designer of Kung-Fu Grip and the Roboskull, has spent a decade documenting not only his own path through Palitoy and toy design, but Palitoy as a whole from 1919 to the shutting of the doors. 

Brian is a phenomenal photographer, designer, toy collector, and one half of the Total Action Force, Total HACKS, Total Roboskull team. He’s a great collector and creative to spend time and drink with. His enthusiasm is infectious and his skills are impressive. And now he has bent them to helping Bob bring this Palitoy history and story to life. 

If you have one of the Total books you already know this is going to be gorgeous. If you don’t, now is your time to jump in. If you love Palitoy, Hasbro, GIJoe, or general toy history, then now is your time to back this book. Do it now before you miss out!
