King, Stephen Easter Egg - Owen S. King & GI Joe: A Real American Hero
Back in the '80's, Hasbro came up with a line of 3 3/4" action figures called "GI Joe: A Real American Hero". One of the figures was called "Sneak Peek" and had the name Owen S. King, from Bangor, Maine. Owen King, as most fan's of the author know, is the son of Stephen King. Legend has it that Hasbro named Sneak Peek after Owen, who at the time was a huge G.I.Joe fan. It is also rumoured that Stephen King created the character Crystal Ball for "GI Joe: A Real American Hero".
