The Cody Lane Memorial Toy and Diorama Museum is dedicated to Cody Martin Lane,
an avid collector and member of the Atlanta GI Joe Collectors Club, who
went home with our Lord on August 23, 2007, after a long battle with a
degenerative neurological disorder called CIDP. He was 17 years old.
indomitable spirit in the face of a debilitating disease, and his
continuous joy in spite of his circumstances, were inspirations to the
families of the Joe Club. No matter their age, they all considered
Cody their friend.
Cody collected many types of action figures, from Civil War heroes to Lord of the Rings
characters to, of course, GI Joes. He was particularly fond of the
dioramas designed and built by the Joe Club members. After his
passing, the Atlanta GI Joe Club decided to create a museum in honor of
Cody's favorite art form: the diorama.
