ok, well sort of. I need help identifying some parts from a lot I bought recently. I went through and found everything I could, but I'm stumped on these. Any help is appreciated. I'm working on a list of parts to trade, so if there's anything you see AND are interested in as well, feel free to let me know about that too! thanks everyone!

I can help you with one of them, one is Krang's from the original TMNT toyline...

You might wanna try www.yojoe.com (http://www.yojoe.com) as well. They've got a gimmick (I believe it's still there) that allows you to search through accessories by color, type, etc.

Hmmm, well, it looks like 1 and 4-9 are bullets. 23-26 are handguns. 20-22 are some kind of mechanical gun which would fire at a faster rate. 15 is a set of fans to cool a server box. 16 is a tiny tire. 17 is a cell phone circa 1999. I think I'd describe the rest as "doohickies." Hope that helps.

I will try to help as best I can.

The chains of bullets I am not really sure of - some of them do not look like GIJoe though.

#14 is a clip used for, among others, the Piranha vehicle from later in the line. You attach it to the waist of a figure so it doesnt fall out.

#18 is not GIJoe.

#'s 23, 25, 26 are the same gun but I cant tell the colors well. The silver is Lifeline's, the grey ones are probably accessory pack versions. The other pistol #24 I believe is Dr. Mindbender's, also the accessory pack version.

#22 is a Viper rifle accessory pack version, with the front handle and muzzle ripped off.

#20 I am not sure of, and #21 I do not think is GIJoe.

#19 looks like the scope to either Low-Light's rifle, or possibly Frostbite's. Neither was removable so check for cutmarks.

That's all I recognize. Hope that helps.

The rifle that's in that pic next to the photo of Krang that rifle goes to good old Sneak Peek

Sneak Peak's rifle was an M-16A2 version and it had a sling. It was also slim.

#3 looks like a helicopter radar tower from the toyline Megaforce.

#14 looks like a clip you put around the waist of a figure from the HISS II tank.

#22 Repaint Viper rifle from accessory pack.

#23 Lifeline's sidearm.

#25 or #26 might be Tiger Force Lifeline's sidearm.

But please, do not take my word as expert.

updated again, only a few things left, which at this point may or may not even be GI Joe. thanks everyone! especially impressed on correctly identifying the clip as being from the HISS II. good call!

#17 is one of the hand held controls from one of the PAC RATS -- Check yojoe, I can't remember which one of the three it goes to. Rarely do you ever find the controls
