I freaking love the Destro. it's pretty loose, but I still really like it. But thanks to Chris, I just realized the Storm Shadow came with 2 nun chucks and is missing his bow. Off to e-bay I go, in search of a bow. I'm a poet, and I didn't even know it.

So my smashed Zap + some 3M super adhesive = a worthless but cool displayable Zap. He's officially SA now, lol.

Man, Dallas, I feel really bad about your stuff getting destroyed. I'm glad you've been able to salvage some of it.

Damn you Earthquake!!

On a different topic, where do you guys stand on File Cards? I really like having them with the figure, but does it add any real value? Should I be paying a premium for them? I saw one site that was selling them and most seemed to be in the $7 range. I'm not sure I like them that much. Do you guys know of any good sources to find them. I wouldn't even be opposed to finding them somewhere online, and jut printing them out to put under or behind each Joe.

Thanks for the kind words Tad. I would like to get replacements for the damaged ones at some point but for now they still display nicely.

As for the file cards - if the Joes i'm looking for happen to come with their card then cool, if not no big deal either. All of mine are just stacked up neatly behind them. I have a few whole cardbacks which are really cool to see the artwork of all the figs. As for value I'm not really sure but I don't think it would increase the value of the Joes too considerably. I've picked up a few complete Joes for $6 with file cards so I think $7 for just the card is over doing it. Just my opinion. I'm not really after them, just after the figs themselves.

Tad - you can find every File Card here:

http://www.yojoe.com/filecard/

Just to add my 2 cents, I don't look at file cards as "needed". If they have them great, if not no biggie

Tad, as for the file cards, they dont really raise the value of the figures. If you look in any price guide or guide book for Joes, they never have a price for a figure complete with file card price next to it. To me, it just looks nicer on display to have the file cards like having the coins for the POTF line. You can pick up lots on Ebay of file cards fairly reasonable if you catch it at the right time. I think I paid around $8-10 for a lot of 6 one time. But I do have to say if you can find some early ones of the original first straight/swivel arm ones, Snake Eyes, CC, Scarlett, etc., with the peach colored cards, that might raise the price alittle. A peach vs grey MOC is a huge difference, the peach colored is what they were before they changed to grey. Ill get some shots up later if I can find my peach ones to show.

Thanks for the info fellas! John, I can't believe I didn't see that before at YoJoe. I even joined the forum over there. I might end up printing them out to display with each figure. Right now I have no idea how or where to display them. They're kind of just in a pile on a shelf in my Star Wars room until I can figure out where to put them.

You think you've got in bad Tad? Here's my current "collection space"




So I got a couple more today!




I also got a bunch of weapons I bought to basically complete one figure and sell the rest. Check out the FS in the "other classifieds"

Dang John - That looks like a GI Joe refugee camp, lol. Seriously though, your on a roll man. I'm having the same space is an issue problem too. I'm going to need to get some risers pretty soon so everything isn't so cluttered up.

Nice Buzzer. That's one I'm after right now. I need to get the red pack for my Crimson Guard, right now it has a black one from the AP's. That's a sharp looking Lifeline also. I forgot how cool he looked. Needed a good pic like that to remind me of how his details really pop.

If you got them on a shelf, Tad, just stand the cards behind them. If you want to get real fancy with it, you could get some of those small plate displays to put them on. But most I seen were just standing behind the figure.

Nice pick ups John. You are rolling with it, arent you. Dont feel bad about no space. All of mine are in baggies and in 3 boxes. Very Happy

They're totally awesome! What a great surprise! Doesn't surprise me about the extra days for delivery. Everything is still pretty f'd up around here.

Glad to see they arrived Dallas. Your pals didn't want the quake to get the best of you.

Ambush looks like Dum Dum Dugan from Marvel comics.
