Hey guys. Seems like I may have started a pandemic by posting my vintage joes in the SW Recent Pick Ups thread. I believe that a few more members will be having so Joes to share soon so rather than take up space in the SW thread lets post them here!

Show off you vintage Joes (1982 - 1994)! Show what you already have or your recent pick ups!

To get things started here is a pic of some of mine (poor quality - I'll get a better one in daylight).

A mix of '82 straight arms, and other various through '87.

Here's my only two Joes at the moment. They survived the big selloff I had a few years ago. All my other Joe stuff was pretty beat and I didn't miis them selling them but kept these two fellas. Just need a couple of guns and Fireflys radio. Damn you Dallas. I never planned to get back into Joes. Frigging Hoser.

Killer collection so far Dallas. Is that just a cardback in the background? Cant tell who its for.

Paul, welcome to our world. You'll have a killer collection before its over. And you know how we are, we'll pressure you into another collection before its over with. lol!

It's just a card back - Tunnel Rat. Got a bunch of file cards too for almost each of the figures.

Paul and John - what was just a space filler in between bootleg pieces has become another full blown collection obsession. I can not be held liable by you guys for any Joe purchases, lol.

Dallas- I'm going to blame you anyway. I blame Joe Y. for bootlegs and I blame you for Joes. Damn Gorton Fisherman.

John- Sounds like time for another support group.

Chris- You're just an enabler.

Good thread Dallas, and congrats on a nice Joe collection in the making! I don't have anything from this line but some of them look cool as hell.

Here are a couple of vintage adverts I have though - the vehicles look pretty cool especially the H.I.S.S. :

I love these adds. I have the same ones in old comics somewhere. I forgot about the figure you could get and have him named after you. I never did get around to ordering him. I always hated the "Fridge" figure when I was a kid. I always thought it was pointless. Now I think it's kinda neat.

Hey guys - There are so many Joes out there since they spanned a much longer period of time than SW.

So with so many great figs which is you all time favorite?

If that is too hard a decision how about your fav from each year?

My all time favorite has got to be '82 Rock n Roll. One of my first as a kid and I've always been partial to him because of his M60. I actually carried that weapon when I first joined the Marines. I like his better - it's much lighter, lol.

Mine would have to be Snake Eyes and Stormshadow. The reason is because back then they were mysterious characters you knew nothing about their history. Just the unknown draws them in.

Me too. Both guys were just badass. I also liked Gung Ho a lot as a kid.

John those look sweet. Mine should be here tomorrow. Torpedo and Ripcoard are two of my favs. And who is Hung-Ho? Smile

I'd have to say one of my favs was always Firefly. Just based on how much I played with him as a kid. And for some reason I loved my Dr. Mindbender figure.

Wow, Hung-Ho?? That sounds like porno style action figures. I'd hate to see his kung fu grip!

Of course Gung Ho and Leather Neck are also 2 of my favs being the dumb Jar Head that I am. Also Grunt and Footloose. I just like the plain ole' infantry riflemen.

He's Gung Ho's very "gifted" brother

He's Gung Ho's asian cousin

He's Gung Ho's twin who hanged himself

Seriously, you guys aint right. lol!

John, missed them earlier, but those figures look great. Congrats on getting a Snake Eyes, but the way he's holding his ammo bag looks like he's ready to bitch slap someone with his purse. Razz

Dallas- Hooded Cobra Commander was always a figure I wanted but never got. He looks awesome. And Tripwire was a figure I used alot as a kid. Who is the neon Republic Commando looking guy?

Paul - That's an '88 Charbroil (Joe). His helmet comes off and everything. Pretty crazy looking. Not your normal looking Joe.

Sweet pick ups Dallas. They look killer. That Charbroil is a weird figure in the line.

One last comment and off to bed with me.

The wierdest looking figure was that Cobra guy with the frigging tail. Whatever he was named.
