In the fall of 2002, I came home every day at lunch to let my dogs out since I didn't have a doggy door. One mild fall day, I came home in a gentle rainstorm. I saw the lighting in the yard was good and that the rain was bringing out the green that was left in the leaves. I got out some recent figures and vehicles and took some pics.
The scene is heavy on 2002 figure releases since they were new at the time and still somewhat exciting. The Night Rhino was one of my de facto Joe vehicles of the time and has remained so ever since. My favorite part was getting the Convention Paratrooper Dusty out and into action.
The scene is quaint today. But, it was a lot of fun at the time and reminds of the lusher locations I used to have available for dios.
