I just received a veeeery nice 1986 Hawk MOC and a less nice Action Force Airtight MOC today. man I was kind of worried about the Hawk since they said damaged card, and I could barely find a flaw when I got it, plus the seller nicely included a 1987 catalog. Man I love those catalogs.

Catalogs are great. How I miss those. Congrats on your haul. I just ordered a 2006 Convention Skull Squad Trooper, but he's not here yet. I'd love to grab an '89 Recoil or '91 Sci-Fi MOC.

That sucks, but I've found that if you hold of long enough you'll find it for YOUR price. I just got two v1 crimson guards for $8 each, complete and VERY mint. I almost feel guilty.... man I love ebay... (most of the time!)

My recent acquistions have been:

-hand painted Firefly V2 hardcopy (used as the photo sample in Hasbro photography).
-6 steel roto head molds used the production of some of the modern 12" figures.
-Canadian diecast 3 pack
-Canadian Scarlett MOC, swivel arm with Canadian birthplace.

I don't actually. Most modern proto stuff doesn't interest me and the only reason why i jumped on these molds were because, well, they were molds. Of Snake Eyes. And Stormshadow! LOL...i'd have been silly not to. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Other modern proto stuff i have are a set of FSs for the Oktober Guard and the Crimson Infiltrate set. That's all i'm really interested in.

I'll be posting some collection pics in a few weeks or so and i'll have some pics of the Firefly, as well as the rest of the Firefly V2 run i've put together. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif

I just checked the shipping record, and my carded Mainframe should be waiting at home. I just hope that the postal carrier didn't decide to leave it on my front porch since it is raining out. I can't wait to see it. I am also waiting impatiently for a couple of parts lots I won. With the poor pictures, I hope that I get what I thought I saw, and maybe some good surprise or other. Either way, it'll increase my for sale list by whatever items I can't use.

this weekend i found several vintage joes i was missing and a few i never had.

iron grenadier (1988) $7 (i already had his weapons)
viper (1986) $3 (i already had his weapons)
serpentor (1986) $10 (no weapons)
tomax & xamot (1985) $6 each (i already had their weapons)
quick kick (1985) $5 (no weapons; i had his backpack)
firefly (1984) $10 (backpack)
wild bill (1983) $6
major bludd (1983) $7 (no weapons)
gung-ho (1983) $5 (no weapons)
destro (1983) $7 (backpack)
scarlett (1982) $10 (crossbow)
snake eyes (1982) $5 (uzi)

i also got a thunder machine for $5 with various parts missing. i was very happy with all of it. they are in great shape except gung-ho's joints are loose and xamot's paint is a little worn. snake eyes' screw is missing. it amazing he was still together. he was at the bottom of a box of joes that had been just tossed in there. i tried to replace the screw, but i think the hole is stripped. he looks good and stays together fairly well anyway.

A couple of weekends ago I went to a Sci Fi conventioin and instead of buying any SW, I bought GI Joe.

For a grand total of $15, I bought complete Flint, Leatherneck, and Beachhead. Included in that price was the VAMP without the jerry cans and steering wheel. I was happy. I've also picked up a Dusty this past week and a Russian MOC Flint that I'm waiting to show up.

Thanks again for the assist on that Shane. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Well I just got quite a few figures.
2 pit viper 6-packs.
2 night watch 6-packs
2 crimson guard 6-packs (one w/ Tomax and other w/ Xamot)
1 shadow guard 6-pack
3 v1 crimson guards complete
1 v1 viper complete
1 v1 B.A.T.S. complete
2 v1 Cobra Officers complete (one was straight arm, but not mint as described)


These were form 2 seperate sellers on eBay. Total was like $176 after shipping... I thought it was pretty sweet. Even though I'm kind of disappointed w/ the crimson gaurds (6-packs) and shadow guards. Their right arms aren't quite right...

A couple of weeks ago I went to a Sci Fi convention and didn't buy any Star Wars. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/blush.gifops:

I've gotten a little stagnant on it lately so I'm going to pursue a few different GI Joe figures. Last weekend I picked up the Vamp jeep, Flint, Beechhead, and Leatherneck. Here is a figure I picked up on eBay and it arrived today. It's a Russian Flint. Thanks to Shane for answering a few questions about it for me. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Two more pickups this weekend. I won an auction for a VAMP II minus the steering wheel and a Cobra Snow Serpent minus the missile stand for a grand total delivered to me for about $25. I'm trying real hard not to clutter up my house with more "stuff" after dumping almost all of my Star Wars collection, but Joe's are really hard to avoid. I'm think though I'm just going to stick with jeeps and a few figures.

Had a nice surpirse at the big local antique show today. Picked up MOCs of Footloose, Airtight, Dr. Mindbender, Croc Master and Raptor, all Candian cards for $190. As nice a deal as it was, i guess the guy who had them picked them up at my big toy show a couple weeks back for $15 each.

I guess that'll teach me to pay more attention at more show. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Not a big Joe collector (although I am getting pretty interested in the 25th ann sets) but I do grab a few of my old favorites when I see them from time to time. Anyway, I was able to get my hands on an A.V.A.C. in near mint condition from ebay. I got a great deal.

Now if I could just find a Firebat that's in good shape for under $50... I know, not going to happen. I miss the days when you could find this kind of stuff at garage sales.

That's exactly how I got my Firebat. I collected the flag points for a long time and I finally was able to get it. I loved that little jet. I had it for years before one of my friends decided to see if they could make it fly. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/mad.gif

Considering that was almost 20 years ago, I should probably let it go... http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

I just got a MIB Sky Hawk with a BIN of $19. I was extremely happy. It was one of the few vehicles I told myself I needed to have because, in my opinion, it was the perfect stopgap between military realism and a tastefully muted sci-fi that makes G.I. Joe so appealing to this day.

I really want a MIB Buzz Boar now for some strange reason... actually I just want the empty box like I usually do but rarely can I find those.

Just picked up the following Joes and Cobra:

Snake Eyes w/ White Wolf
Snake Eyes w/ Black Wolf
Storm Shadow
Flint
Cobra Officer

Would anyone have preferred that the Cobra Officer come with the AK-47 instead of the "silver" sniper rifle? BTW, wouldn't a "silver" sniper rifle kind of give away your "sniper" position? http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

The stands look great and they look awfully familiar to some stands from some other Hasbro toy line. Now what was that line....hmmm.http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Nice find on the Terrordrome DarthPete.

Trev
07-14-2007, 04:11 PM
Yep, I wish the Cobra Officer came with an AK - that's how it was and that's what the character's holding in the picture. Who knows, maybe the upcoming carded Cobra Trooper who's holding a sniper rifle in his picture will actually come with an AK? http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Darth_Kuk
07-17-2007, 01:04 PM
From what I understand, Hasbro ran out of time on the AK mold, but mentioned the AK may make an appearance later in the line (attach the "if there is a later in the line" line where-ever appropriate).
Oh, and in Vietnam, the silver-plated sniper (and AK-47) rifles were popular among Charlie officers. More of a prestige thing than actual combat.
Of course, in the original art (1982), the rifles look silver and not black, so you can justify from a lot of angles.

I posted this in the HTS thread in the TAC forum, but I think it might be served here as well.

HTS has both battlepacks in stock.

Joe Set (http://www.hasbrotoyshop.com/ProductsByBrand.htm?BR=520&SBR=539&ID=20175)
Cobra Set (http://www.hasbrotoyshop.com/ProductsByBrand.htm?BR=520&SBR=539&ID=20176)

Remember to use SPTIER07 to get $10.00 off. Shipped, it ends up being $10 cheaper than retail.

Yeah, it was a $50 minimum and HTS limited the sets 1 per order. I probably should have clarified that. (I just assumed everyone would buy both, which would qualify for the $10 promo code.) If they are in stock again and you only wanted one you could use FNFSPR7 to get $5 off. (I tried that one first, I know it works too.)

My only complaint on these is the foil effect packaging. It'd have been much cooler to leave that out, and much more retro. Maybe beyond the 25th anniversary we'll see them get rid of the foil. I'd actually be in for repacks if they did.

In the GI Joe movie, it starts off with a Cobra theme song. Not really a standalone song, as it leads into the GI Joe theme, but would have been cool if they played it on the sound box.

These are the lyrics from the GI Joe Theme Song from the 1987 Movie:

Crashing through the night
Comes a fear full cry
Cobra! Cobra! Cobra! Cobra!
Armies of the night
Evil taking flight
Cobra! Cobra! Cobra! Cobra!
No where to run
No where to hide
Panic spreading far and wide
Who can turn the tide?

GI Joe- A real American hero
Yo Joe!
GI Joe is there

GI Joe- A real American hero
GI Joe is there
Fighting for freedom
Wherever there's trouble
over land and sea and air
GI Joe is there

Can the world oppose
Deadliest of foes?
Cobra! Cobra! Cobra! Cobra!
Joes will risk it all
To end the evil call of
Cobra! Cobra! Cobra! Cobra!
They never give up
They never say die
Walking tall with banners high
They sound the battle cry-
Yo Joe! Yo Joe!

GI Joe- A real American hero
GI Joe will dare
GI Joe- A real American hero
GI Joe is there

Fighting for freedom
Wherever there's trouble
over land and sea and air
GI Joe is there

GI Joe is the codename for American's daring, highly trained
special mission force.
It's purpose, to defend human freedom against Cobra-
a ruthless, terrorist organization determined to rule the world.

GI Joe- A real American hero
GI Joe will dare
GI Joe- A real American hero
GI Joe is there
Fighting for freedom
Wherever there's trouble
over land and sea and air
GI Joe is there
Cobra! Retreat! Retreat!

GI Joe- A real American hero
GI Joe is there
GI Joe

I had stopped collecting GI Joe figs about 8 or 9 months ago...there is just so much star wars stuff to buy it's hard to collect both. I even sold some of my vintage figs. Anyway, I kept seeing the 25th anniversary Joe's in the SW R/A thread. I got lucky this past weekend and was able to pick up all 5 of the carded figs as well as the GI Joe pack...they are awesome. Still looking for the cobra pack though. I'm also working on picking up some of the vintage figs I sold off.

Well since my decision to jump back into collecting GI Joes again, I've been busy. I'm still mad at myself for seeling off most of the vintage Joe's I had. I kept 85 Snake Eyes, 85 Storm Shadow, 85 Shipwreck, 85 Firefly and a few others. Much to my wife's dismay, this is what I've picked up in the last week and a half:
1. Gi Joe 5 pack
2. Cobra 5 pack
3. all 5 25th anniversary figs
4. 88 Muskrat
5. 83 Scarlett
6. 84 Baroness
7. 85 Lady Jaye
8. 85 Flint
9. 85 Sgt. Slaughter
10. 87 Tunnel Rat
11. 87 Jinx
12. 83 Destro
13. 84 Duke
14. 88 Hit and Run
15. 83 Cobra Commander
16. 87 Falcon
17. 83 Cover Girl

Chanches that we will see any of the 25th GI JOE figures over here in Belgium are sub-zero, so I imported this one from the US http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif I'm not into GI Joe as a die-hard collector, but I had lots of Joes when I was young, and when this line was still available in Europe. Most of them were sold when I grew up, but I kept a few. I re-discovered the Joes a few years ago but was disappointed to find out where they were evolved in. But with this 25th anniversary line, Hasbro has shown what Joes are all bout! I just had to get this absolutely incredible Storm Shadow when I saw the toy show shots! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

I decided to make some pictures (this thread should be packed with pics of your new acquisitions!). Since I didn'tg buy the 25th Snake Eyes yet, I took the version I got a few years ago. While it isn't as good as the new ones, I think it still holds up a bit against the 25th violence http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

I hope you like the shots!

Same here! I still have all my original figures from the eighties. These bring back so many memories! I can remember so clearly walking into the toy aisle in Service Merchandise as a kid with my mom and seeing the first wave of GI Joe figures hanging there.

Frickin' $30 each when they're only $25 at both WM and Target, but I figured I was good or even slightly better with that 20% off coupon. I read it just before I was next to check out and it's good for one item. DOH! I printed out 5 of those to use at different times/stores, but only brought 1 with me because I didn't read the really big fine print located right there in the middle of the coupon about one coupon per item. I felt really dumb. Maybe I can find it at the other places for the $25 and take the TRU pack back.

I only need one more fig to be done until wave 2 and that's Flint. I didn't figure these figs to fly off the shelves as they have so i put him back the couple of times that I found him. The last time I had him in my hand I was going to get him, but the card was bent. And Flint isn't one I feel compelled to open.

I found a number of the 5 packs, about 3 each, at a Target here in Eugene today, I picked up the Cobra one. Also got one of the 2 Snake Eyes that was on the pegs, but that was it for single carded joes.

What's up with Destro's holster? It seems so big for the guns that can fit in it. The gun in the MARS briefcase is too big, and the thicker of the 2 pistols seems too small for such a big holster. Destro's huge!! He towers over Snake Eyes and the Baroness....speaking of which, does anyone want my Baroness?? She'd be good custom fodder if nothing else - offer me a trade, let's see what happens... http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Two more down, found Cobra Commander and the Cobra Officer today. Still need the black Timer variant, and the Gold Destro...

Got to WalMart and looked around and thought they didnt have Joes, but I had just been overlooking them. Well, right out front was a Cobra Officer. Totally excited. Picked it up, and the card looked like it had been chewed on, it was completely ratty. But luckily, right behind it, a nice crisp one with a very slight dogear on the corner.

Went to the check out, and the guy grabbed it and nearly bent it in half swiping it across the scanner. Warped it a bit, but no creases. I cant stand that checkout people don't treat peoples products with a bit of respect. I dont care what it is, don't mess it up!

Good point. I've been wanting these at Target for a long time. It's just so much faster than the checkout people. You don't have to sit there and wait for them to approve your card, etc. Although, there's usually a flock of people at the U-Scan when it first opens and they stand there with their thumbs up their butts.

Found wave 3 this morning at a Target in Joliet IL!!!!

Sgt. Stalker was the yellow camo version. He is a repaint of Snakes but his hands have folds like gloves which sucks cause they are supposed to be bare hands. It looks stupid!

Zartan's face was half one colour and another in the package.

The paint job on the Red Ninja is damn awesome.

Shipwreck looks better than the prototypes but still mad about that closed fist. And he didn't include his rope hooks but has 3 guns....

Firefly is damn cool too.

Cobra Officer is a back in the mix too.

This is crazy cause I just found wave 2 a week or two ago....

Found wave 3 this morning at a Target - yep, it's nuts that these hit less than a week after wave 2. Interesting how some of Hasbro's stuff is hitting with waves close together. BBTS got cases of Star Wars wave 5 and then wave 6 about a week later. Now the same thing with the Joes.

One positive is that they'd put out two cases, which is more than I've seen any retail location have on one day around here.

Update: Cobra Legions battlepack - Cobra Air trooper has removable helmet AND a rifle and regular Trooper helmet are packaged with the stand. Storm Shadow's bow is also with the stands which are cleverly concealed behind the cardboard insert of a grandstand. Almost threw it away while quietly complaining about no stands in the box. lol The background pic shows a ton of Cobra troops including Tomax, Xamot and Crimson Guardsmen. I hope they will do those figures as well. Also shown are red ninjas, most of the army builders, Destro, Baronness and Major Bludd.

So last night I posted in the SW fig forum whining because I had gone to two stores the day after, or even just a couple of hours, waves 5 and 6 were stocked and found nothing but a few left overs. I decided this morning to get up and go out before work. The first place I went was TRU. When I get to the boys toys section I can look down the first isle and see the JOE section... and THEY ACTUALLY HAD 25th CARDED JOES! I ended up being able to grab 1 set of all of wave 2. I felt pretty dumb about posting that I didn't have any luck finding anything. I picked up a couple SW figs as well.

I still need to find another Beach Head and Cobra Trooper to open. I've got all of wave 3 pre-ordered so no worries there. Wave 4 is just repacks of the 5-packs so I don't think there will be a lot of trouble finding those. And finally, I just pre-ordered wave 5 (set of 8) from BBTS with TWO Crimson Guards in it. I'm feeling pretty good about my JOE collecting for the next several months.

So I called all of the Wal-Marts in my area and according to the people on the phone, they were out of 25th Joes entirely. I realize that associates on the phone very easily lie but I haven't seen anything new here in weeks, so I think I believe them this time.

Plus, I got the Viper Pit 6-pack.

My TRU had several of each in stock, so if anyone wants some of these at cost plus shipping, let me know.

Why is this? Shouldn't all the JOEs be under one company? Sorry for asking, but I just don't understand. If you have the rights to GI JOE then you should have the rights to every character under that title.



It's not due to Hasbro allowing the name to be used. It's because Hasbro's rights to use a certain name have elapsed and gone to another company. Mattel will not allow th euse of the name Flash, so the one that we will get will be Sgt. Flash. I heard that they couldn't use Outback because it was licensed to a chain of restaurants. The names that are used the most frequently are the ones that they either already have the copyright on, or were able to grab again. You notice that for a while Scarlett was Agent Scarlett, but now it's back to being Scarlett, so they must have been able to either resecure exclusive rights to the name or negotiate a shared useage. I am hoping that Hawk will be Hawk and not Tomahawk or General Abernathy.

Sorry, Red5. I saw 12 Officers and I thought immediately..........Damn him!!!!!!! Anyways, ironically enough, my buddy from work just called from a local Target and picked up one of these guys for me! (I didn't have the Officer yet, so I'm stoked I finally got one!!!) Oh, and I picked up Satan at a Wal*Mart on the way home from work earlier this afternoon, too (even though I kind of really didn't want him, but I haven't found any Joes recently so I was hell-bent on buying something!!)

Some of them are from the Cobra Legions box set.

It's ok. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif And if you don't really want the Red Ninja I will trade you an officer or a trooper for him.

WOOHOO!!! Found wave 3 tonight 11:30pm at Wal-Mart!! I only picked up Stalker (non-yellow) Zartan and Firefly. Shipwreck in my opinion was a crappy fig, the head was too small and don't get me started on the parrot. The Red Ninja sadly had a bad paint job, so I had to pass on him for now.

Wave 3 at Wal-Mart. Only picked up Firefly since the original was my first JOE.

Does Zartan change colors? That vintage figure was sweet.

Hmmm...think I'll take mine out into the sun and find out, but I don't believe it does.
