Wrapping up our visit to Steve Stovall’s house, we see a few more of the incredible items in his collection, and yet, we don’t come close to seeing it all. I want to thank Steve once again for his gracious hospitality in welcoming me and my wife to his home to see his incredible toy collection. Please be sure to visit 3D Super Joes to find out more about the little-known chapter of GI Joe’s evolution. Steve wil fill you in on every detail of this cool, but overlooked, part of toy history.
I also want to thank Buddy Finethy for convincing me to start going to WonderFest USA back in 2015 (and also for dragging me down to my first JoeLanta years before). Buddy is the cream of the crop when it comes to toy collectors, and folks like Buddy are a big part of why I’m so happy to belong to this community.
Our lead image in this batch of photos sees Steve showing off two very rare large GI Joe bagatelles, which I believe complete his collection of these cool plastic pinball toys. To the left you see some rare GI Joe colorforms.
Now that we have our side visit to Steve’s properly documented, tomorrow PopCult will head back to WonderFest USA for more of the cool stuff that we saw in the model contest and on the dealer’s room floor.
And as a side note: Don’t forget to listen to The AIR, our internet radio station. We’re shaking up the schedule once again this week, and today at 5 PM you can hear a new episode of Marking Out, our pro-wrestling talk show with Matt BelVillain and Betty Rock.
Now on to Steve’s house one last time…
Thanks again to Steve Stovall. Come back to PopCult all week long for more photo essays devoted to WonderFest USA. We had some technical issues that kept us from getting these to you sooner, but we think we have the bugs all ironed out now.
