Img_9913Last Thursday, after we toured Senoia, the city where they filmed The Walking Dead “Woodbury” scenes, we stopped by to check out the incredible collection of Tim Meritt, a Georgia-based GI Joe collector who specializes in collecting mint-condition boxed items and ultra-rare pieces. Needless to say, this visit required a drool bucket as everyone on the tour saw at least one (or a dozen) items that they’d never seen in person before–and a few things that they didn’t know existed.

Many thanks to Tim and Tammy for welcoming our motely crew into their lovely home…and then back out to the second house that they built to house Tim’s collection.This was an incredible experience, like walking through a reference book of rare toys. The tour group left in a daze, but it didn’t prepare us for what was next on the trip.
