For this week’s Throwback Thursday, I decided to dive into the storage locker and pull out a classic toy from my childhood. What was I going to find? A He-Man figure? Some G.I. Joes? Maybe a mutilated Transformer (I could never figure out how to get them to transform back into their vehicle form.) I did find all of those, but what I brought out was one of the coolest characters of Saturday morning cartoons. I found Casey Jones.
Of all the characters in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle universe, he was my favorite. He definitely fit my appreciation of smart mouth characters who were a little rebellious and not 100% squeaky clean, but always seemed to come out on the side of right, even if it involved bending a rule here or there. This action figure is such fun, from the strange weapons that includes a broken bat and golf club, to the hockey mask. Everyone looks cool in a hockey mask.
I took Mr. Jones to work today, so you may see some extra photos pop up of a vigilante’s experiences in the corporate world.
