That looks good like that Tad. Like how you got the CC and Duke facing each other. What happened to Stalker? Someone forgot to tell him he had to throw the grenade after he pulls the pin? lol! Poor guy.

Soren, that Action Force Hydro Viper is nice, mate.

Tad - Nice display! Sorry about the Stalker! Mine lost his hand due to the giant earthquake triggered by Cobra's underground bomb explosion, lol. I got him patched right up with some Scotch 3M super adhesive. It drys clear and is much easier to use than super glue. You can hardly tell now, the adhesive even filled in the crack.

Fellas, I've decided to let go of the Joes already. It's just too hard keeping up with them, and Star Wars, and a Vader focus, and comic books all at the same time. So the Joes have to go.

If any of you guys are interested in buying any, let me know. I would rather get rid of the whole lot, but let me know which ones you guys might be interested in, and just make me an offer. I wanted to put it here first, so the guys that frequent this thread would see it first, whatever doesn't sell to you guys, I'll probably just put on e-bay.

Of course, I would give a solid discount to you guys. Just take a look at my previous pics, and let me know if you want any.

Tad I hear ya on this. I may just complete my set and then sell it too. I just can't figure out the display situation. However for now Im into it, especially given the lull in my vintage collecting as the pieces I need becomes scarce.

PM coming though for a few figs if you want to break up the set.

Oh man, I love GI Joe stuff. I don't even know where to start. Just saw this thread now for the first time. I will show a few pics I guess.










I would love to show more, but I need to take more pics. I am currently working on the complete run of figures from 82 to 94. Thats fun!

Very nice, curch. The planes were one of the items I always wanted from this line because my dad was in the Air Force.

If theres any figures you need to finish your run, send me a list of what you need and I'll look to see what I got. I'll cut you a good deal on them for being a home state collector. lol! Im originally from Palmerton.

Pretty sweet curch. Makes me want to rebuild my old Skystryker. I always thought Ace looked like an astronaut.

Great vehicles man! Looks great!

I'm going to do a very odd thing. I'm going list my collection on Ebay to sell as a whole collection (Obviously if anyone is interested let me know) while simulataneously continuing to build up my set LOL.

Dallas - I mean I'm not going to peacemeal it out. The Ebay ad shows 89 complete figs but with a big opening bid. If nobody bites I'll keep them. Im not in need of the money right now but for the right price I'll sell them.

Since i don't know if anyone will buy them, I'm going to keep buying and try for my complete 1982-1986 set!!

Hey guys I wanted to see if anyone still into Joe's wanted a deal on my remaining 11 figures. I've got the following left:

Breaker (Straight Arm) $11.00
Flash (Straight Arm) $18.00 with Filecard
Short Fuze (Straight Arm) $24.00
Scrap Iron $15.00
Airtight - $10
Buzzer $10.00
Crankcase $9.00
Cross Country $8.00
Dr. Mindbender $11.00 with Filecard
Motor Viper $9.00
Roadblock V2 $10.00

If anyone here wants them all, I've got $95 invested in them. I'll go $100 shipped for everyone. Everybody is complete, all accessories are correct.

Hey guys,

I did some digging around and I cant find any info on a few "carded" Joes I just picked up. I picked up a Scarlett, Short Fuze, Stalker, and Snake eyes all on these small red backed file cards with blisters. I only have these pics, they have not arrived yet. I think these were either an insert in a boxed figure, a mailaway, or something like that.

Alot of those were pack ins for the vehicles. But what those are you got coming are from the mail away packs from Sears like this one.

http://www.joeintel.com/general_page_desc.php?left_search=&cat=&countries_id=MzAyMzAy&cat_id=MzAyNjkyMzAy&cat_content_id=MzAyMjUzMzMwMg==&image_id=MzAyNzMxMDMwMg==

Awesome score if they are all straight arms. Theres also J.C. Penny mail aways but with the Sears tags on those what they did was break the packs apart and sold them seperate since they had plenty left over they didnt sell. That site above only shows Breaker, Short Fuze, Stalker, and the Cobra 3-pack. Real nice sight but not well known.
