John- Those got there fast. Love the Zandar and Zarana. Carful to lock those Dreadnoks up at night. They will steal all the chocolate donuts and grape soda out of your fridge.

Thanks bro. I had them up for sale for awhile now, but decided to keep these bad boys so I can add to them.

I found 2 at a flea market not long ago and the people who was running it wanted $49 each for the things. I very lightly laid them down so I wouldnt scratch the already beat up box in fear of having to pay for them if they dropped. One was the Battle Copter I already got, but the box was opened and not even sure if everything was in it. Of course they said it was sealed, their own tape seal. Too bad they were glued sealed from the factory. Rolling Eyes

Man, this thread is really taking off! Love it!

Paul - Great Mutt & Junkyard. I've been trying to find a decent complete one of those. Big Boa cracks me up. I always wondered if he was inspired by Rocky Balboa back in the day???

John - Your on a roll man! All the Dreadnoks in one shot! Very nice!

Chris - Love the vehicles man. I still have my Bridge Layer and it's box over at my folks house somewhere. I'm going to have to find it.

I've got a few new additions that I can add tonight now that I'm home from the Tiger Cage, lol.

Watch it Paul, I'll tell Tim you said Trek again and he'll kick you out. lol! Hope your having a good day re-arranging the store. And remember, no boob touching. Very Happy

Thanks Dallas. I've been wanting to finish the run of vehicles, but never got around to since the prices went up when the movie came out. Need to hurry up and buy some more before the next movie comes out or I'll never be able to afford them again.

Well here's my Joe collection as it stands after the earthquake (plus some in the floor). A few broken thumbs and crotches to the bunch... Oh well, it's just plastic.

Sorry to hear the collection got hit, Dallas. Hopefully it wasnt too many who got damaged, bad enough that any did at all.

Maybe i'll get to verse two at some point LOL

Here's todays haul. Little upset, Zartan has a busted kneepad (but it does hold on) and Storm Shadow isnt as white as he appeared. BTW - I put Zartan out in the sun and he still turns Blue!!!

Love the song John. We've all been bitten by the bug it seems. It's a nice sideline.

It's cool that Zartan still turns blue. You should put his sea cycle out to see if it still turns blue too. Alot of people don't realize it changes color too. As does his brother and sister. Zandar and Zarana.

Wow John... I'm really worried about you now! Sounds like you put some real effort into that! lol!

Zartan looks awesome! Cool that he still turns color. How about his sled? Does that still change??

Well I decided to return Storm Shadow (it wasn't nearly as white as described) but wanted to take a couple of quick pics to show my progress so far. I've got about 14 more coming in then Im going to make sure weapons are right (not APs) and kind of come up with a goal to shoot for.
