My family and I live in an apartment building and living under us is a family with a nine year old boy. Noticing that he likes Max Steel, I decided to show him my Max Steel collection and my 12" GI Joes. Naturally, we had a blast them. We took all of my 12" Joes, a few Max Steels, and a couple of Action Mans and we had a huge war with them. He and his friend were on one team, and I was on my own. One of the kids had an instant bond with my 12" Dusty, and the other just loved my Midnight Mission figure. We all had a great time and I think i've made a real Gi Joe fan.
