How complete is your Flagg ?

There was a similar poll on yojoe last week but I thought the results were tainted by the fact that it's the #1 joe collecting site, so right off the bat the poll shows that not only do most collectors have one, it's complete and like 14% of responders have the box



Anyway, I felt like the big loser over there because I do have a Flagg but it's not complete, but I'm not even sure I care to complete it. I lucked out and got it for $135.00 with like $100+ to ship it. The thing is, is that I lived within 45 minutes of the seller, so while the auction scared away most other bidders due to the high shipping, I was able to make a great score, cheap, because I drove to get it. The whole thing looks nice and displays great, but these are the things it needs to be "complete".

The small deck rail
3 missles
one satellite dish for the aft?
about half the deck clips
some of the stuff for the antennae setup
the American Flag
Keel Hauls pistol
Some parts to the fuel trailer
purge valve
could use a new crane

So it sounds like the thing is a piece of junk, but honestly, with the exception of the missles, which I would like to get, none of the other stuff seems nessessary, especially for the money. It displays great, the deck is clean and minus the small purge valve my interior is perfect. But if I add it all up that's another $125 worth of parts just to call it finished. And I already feel as if I'm getting the maximum happiness potential out of it. Someday I'll take pictures, I just don't know how to host them of put them up here, but someday......


Anyway, I thought here would actually be a better place to discuss the flagg, since as joe fans on a Star Wars forum, there might be a more accurate reaction to this great playset. So tell me, do you have a flag? How complete is it? If it's not complete, what is it missing, and do you care to finish it? and If you don't have a Flagg, is it something you would be interested in owning, or did you have one as a kid?

0% complete at the moment, but at some point in the future I'd like to double what I have.


Seriously, with my Star Wars collection already taking up way too much space in 2 houses, I don't think I'll ever get one due to space restrictions. Now if I ever have a change of favorites like I did when I was 12 or so, I'll trade out my Star Wars for GI Joe and probably end up with one.

I left mine in my parents garage since I didn't have room in my house. Came back later and squirrels ate at it or something. So I tossed it.

No Flagg for me. But I do have a 100% complete Cobra Terrordrome!
My Terrordrome is much like my Flagg, so nearly complete I probably will never finish it. I think I'm missing a hose or two, and one of the wall pieces has a broken hinge and doesn't stay on right unless it's closed. And I'm missing AVAC pilot, who I am not about to spend 40 bucks to get.

My Flagg is 100% completely ..... gone.
I feel you, bro. Mine too. DAMN PARENTS DIVORCING! One of many bad things to come of that separation was the loss of my Flagg. That toy frickin' kicked so much butt! OH MY GOSH! There will never be another vehicle/playset like the USS Flagg.


I want to get another one someday, but Threepio can tell you the odds of that happening.

My brother and I were giagantic Gi-Joe fans, but we never had the Flagg. I never knew anyone who had one either, but I am working on getting one, hopefully one century soon...lol.
