Nice! Did your TRU always have those out or was it more of a stockroom find?

Picture V1C and V1E Steel Brigade figures recently. Just 8 more figures to buy and I have the entire 82-94 set. Although I'll be taking a GI Joe colleting hiatus because of an upcoming move to Belgium. I'm pretty excited about it.

I'm not sure how favorably photos are looked at in this thread, but I'm a visual person.

I've grown very disappointed with what Hasbro is doing with the current Star Wars line, so I've dipped back into the vintage Joe lines. This is what I've managed to score over the past month. Not as abundant as many of you here, and nothing is really complete. I'm happy to have them represent, though.


Action Force rapid fire motorcycle with 1991 Mutt



Action Force Whirlwind



Action Force SAS Panther



Everything I've grabbed together. The MMS is missing the missiles, but I got it with the Panther jeep. I do have the shrouds for the WHALE, but they were all broken. I'm trying to fix them, as that's good enough for me. I like to take photos of things, and as long as they look "whole," I'm happy.

Got Club Membership Iceberg at a GI Joe show today. Man, what a garbage figure, lol. The gear is cool and all, but the vintage head kills it for me. Plus, the one I got has super wobbly legs. Still, it plugs a hole in the '86 roster. Also got a Steel Brigade Zombie from eBay a few weeks ago.

picked up a RHINO and the ROCC over the weekend at a convention. $75.00 for the pair (complete with figures). going to use them for some custom "Cobra" vehicles as I already have them for my Joe forces but thought that this was a steal for the 2 of them and I just get more of a Cobra vibe from them. I'm thinking the RHINO is definitely going to the forces of COBRA and I'm on the fence with the ROCC (I'm leaning towards either repainting this is a Night Force color scheme or maybe using it as a custom G.I. Joe / Transformers crossover and giving it an Optimus Prime color scheme.)

I managed to score a few more items. Most aren't complete, but they're good enough for me for now. Being a visual person...


The over-all shot.



Honestly, I didn't want this at first until I realized it's a different color from the US version, and a photo-story idea came to me that could utilize it. It's missing the small gun, like most, but the motor still works.



Action Force SAS Wolverine. I wish the US version had looked like this. So much better.



This one is my favorite of the pickups. The Action Force SAS Panther jeep, complete. This is, as far as I can tell, the harder version to find, with the yellow roll cage. I have the black cage already.



Action Force SAS Blades. Don't look too closely. It's in poor shape. I got it as part of the Wolverine/Panther lot.



Action Force Stalker (Snake Eyes) and Action Force Blades (tripwire)



Action Force Red Shadows Laser Exterminator.
I know what you're thinking. Why wasn't this in group photo? I forgot about it, and then was too lazy to re-shoot. You're probably also wondering why I didn't clean up the wheels. Well, given that they're not even the correct wheels for this, I thought I'd leave them dirty. I do have the correct wheels coming. I also shot it this way to hide the fact that the computer is also missing.




I had the MMS before, but managed to get two missiles for it. I know these, while the same mold, aren't the correct missiles for this. These came with an ugly Action Force boat that used the MMS head as its missile launcher. I think they look just as good as the correct missiles, and 1000 times better than the US version.


Now, I need to rest to refill my funds.

Then, the hunt for Quarrel, Steeler, Hunter, and the Escape Armor may begin. I also wouldn't mind grabbing the command center and atc if I can find them cheap. I don't really want the rest... Jammer, Dolphin, Moondancer, Goucho, Red Jackal, Red Laser, they just don't do it for me.

^Not sure if it's just me, but pictures aren't showing up if you've attached them. I'd love to see some Action Force stuff. I'm happy to get Club FSS AF figures, and I wish I had ponied up for Blades before the older Con figures started to skyrocket.

I got FSS Dojo, Nunchuck and Barricade recently. With an end in sight and with Ninja Force looking like it'll mostly be completed, I figured I'd might as well go back and get these before they skyrocket in price too.

I've tried it on two different computers and my phone. All three can see the images. So, I'm not sure what to say. It is possible my image host is having issues. They tend to do that quite often.

I also noticed I made a mistake. The Fang isn't titled Blades in Action Force, it's Hawk. Such a silly error. I feel quite the fool.

If you want the Action Force stuff, I'd start with the figures. They're going up again. Red Jackal, Destro with a red chest, sells for more than I'd think a 1983 Destro with a red chest should sell for, frequently well over 100 USD. He did come with a red HISS tank, Red Hyena, and I'd love to have it. That's another one that keeps climbing. And as a small tip, try to get them from France or Spain. The UK has lots and lots of them, but almost all of my purchases from the UK have been .... well.... bad.

You're right, I see them on my phone but not on my work computer, my mistake. That's some great stuff. I don't think I'd take the plunge and do vintage, all I ever had was the Joecon version of Black Major that I ended up selling. Here's what the Club has put out in the various FSS over the last five years, minus Blades and with a stand-in for Moondancer:

Thanks for the kind words, Lee_Gray! There's someone on HissTank.com selling Captain Skip figures if anyone's interested:

http://www.hisstank.com/forum/g-i-joe-buy-sell-trade/460359-z-force-captains-sale.html


I was going to buy one from him but decided against falling down that rabbit hole! On topic, I recently got Joecon 2014 Wreckage, FSS 7 Skid/Treadmark and Joecon 2018 Hardball. I was turning my focus from Transformers to GI Joe in 1987-88, so I'm pretty fond of characters from those years. Also got 50th Ace and a Retaliation Red Ninja.
