Apparently we have an exclusive G.I. Joe product here in Belgium. The 1988 Skystriker patch.
It was a mail in action that cost 9 Flag Points and the equivalent of € 1 in stamps.
I’ve been collecting them and am willing to part with them now to generate some extra cash for expanding my 50th anniversary collection and vintage Joes.
If you’re interested, let me know. I can ship internationally.
I’ve had the opportunity of purchasing a large amount of comics from a collector who has given up on Joe collecting (shame on him!). With these comics, I have expanded my comic book collection significantly. These comics not only included most of the Marvel comics, but also some of the DDP and IDW comics I was missing.
I still have a few issues missing now (of course I have all the TPB’s and have read them all). If anybody can help me find the following single issues, let me know in a reply or contact me through Twitter (@EuropeanJoes).
Happy Collecting and YoJoe!
for the time being my Kre-o’s have been stuck in a Detolf cabinet, but the collection has been growing so that I will need to add some extra shelves to it. I found some ideas on the interwebs already on how to do that and as soon as I can physically get near the figures again (see my previous post), I’ll start on that.
For now, I want to share this great idea from Ikeahackers. Check it out:
I think it will look great to have a G.I. Joe and Cobra frame on the wall 🙂
See you soon!
It’s been longer than I tought it would be, but there is a new baby on the way and my Man Attic is stuffed with everything that was supposed to go on our regular attic. The regular attic is being transformed in a bedroom for my eldest daughter and so the room had to be cleared out. And with no extra space available, the Man Attic was filled to the brim with boxes and stuff.
I have been collecting though. My K-reo collection is almost complete, with the Terror Drome and Ninja Dojo still in the box, but I’m itching to get building.
The 3 3/4″ Joes collection has not really been growing, I did order some carded figures online about a week ago, but they haven’t arrived yet.
I’ve made up a plan for the remodeling of the Man Attic. That means getting rid of some stuff I have been holding on to, but it is necessary to make more space for my Joes and vintage game consoles. I’ve decided to stop collecting other comics (only The Walking Dead and anything Joe related will remain) and my book collection will also be slimmed down to a few all time favourites.
When the regular attic is morphed into a bedroom and the storage part of the attic is cleared, I’ll start working in the Man Attic and posting some pictures.
Keep you posted (and this time it won’t take so long 🙂 )
Hope is still alive…
I scored the dvd of G.I.Joe Resolute in my local supermarket today, with a Dutch cover. Thank God it’s voiced in English 🙂
Could this mean G.I. Joe is planning a comeback in Europe?
Keep the hope alive!
