Mint off Card this week looks at the latest from White Elephant Toyz in the form of Super Joe Unlimited. Super Joe has triumphantly returned based on the underrated toy line from the late 1970s. How does he stack up against vintage? The answer may surprise you. Plus, we talk about a fun bonus figure in the form of Dr. Zorma, one of the Atomic Apemen.
