Ignatius Onomatopoeia

Many thanks for sharing this. I rekindled my old interest in GI Joes (the originals--the size of these more realistic figs from Dragon and other companies) many years back. Adults wondered "why in the hell are you collecting toys?"

I'd mumble something about value and investment (no longer true--the bottom fell out on that market).

While I don't share this man's need for inventing a therapeutic world through 1/6 scale figures, when I was a kid, it was magical to make up stories with these toys.

There's a lot in common with the reasons that folks make avatars and push them around a screen--the hunger for narratives not easily done (if possible at all) in real life.
