    A man dies, plastic decays, but adventures and stories and dreams, they can last forever.

    Rest in Peace, Levine.

    I never knew G.I. Joe was the very first action figure made.

    :rip  Mr. Levine...

    Fun fact: If it wasn't for Takara obtaining the GI Joe license in Japan; then creating a clear cyborg figure (called Henshin Cyborg); then shrinking Henshin Cyborg to a 3 3/4 size and naming it Microman; we wouldn't have had the Microchange subline and we wouldn't have the G1 versions of Megatron, Soundwave, Perceptor, Blaster, etc that we all know and love.
