Half The Battle, a collection of fantastic handmade wooden G.I. Joe figurines by Vancouver-based, Caleb Beyers.
I love that last picture haha the McDonalds payphone in the back. These are super cool!
haha yea i love that too!
these remind me of little figures Alex Ross (world famous comic artist/illustrator) made out of construction paper when he was a kid. there’s photos of them in his Mythology book i think, i should try to dig ’em up
this guy is awesome! AND he’s from vancouver. love it. and that picture of zartan sitting outside of mcdonald’s is classic.
I have met Caleb recently. The GI Joe’s are amazing. He also does some amazing work with paper..kd
Wow, I’d love to see a Metal Gear collection. These are fantastic.

Please be kind to me. I was once proud owner of the entire collection (I repeat: the entire collection) of G.I. Joe figurines, as well as a substantial amount of vehicles and other stuff. Coming back from college, I found out my mum threw them all away, since I am TOO OLD FOR TOYS.
Oh these likenesses were my best friends about 20 years ago. Still the most versatile toys around, thanks Caleb for celebrating this love affair.
