I received the 3-packs from the 50th line from a colleague who went to New York earlier this year. (see my previous post)
But apart from those figures, I hadn’t found the time (or money :-)) to buy some other figures. Recently I rediscovered eBay and noticed that the prices are really getting back to normal (or at least affordable).
Last year, I bought several figures on eBay, but since then I only saw the prices rise and didn’t buy anything.
Since that seems to have changed now, I’m ordering again. Not only the new Joes, but also some vintage stuff. More on that soon (I hope, depending on the post doing their job).
So here it is, my first new purchase, the 50th Snow Job.
I’ll be back with more new additions to my collection when they arrive. I’ll also try and take some pictures from the Nerd Room, but that room needs some cleaning and organizing first 🙂
A collector from the UK has found 4 comics to complete my collection.
So I’m still looking for the following issues:
If anyone can help me, let me know in the comments or via Twitter (@EuropeanJoes).
A colleague of mine went to New York 2 weeks ago and I asked her to look out for the 2-packs of the 50th line. She got over excited and actually got me all 4 triple packs 🙂
So here it is, still cosy wrapped in plastic. The 2015 comic con exclusive G.I.JOE Kre-O set with Sgt. Slaughter and Pimp Daddy Destro.
It also contains the rest of Slaughter’s Marauders and some nice henchmen for Destro.
One of my all-time favorite figures, Voltar, is also included. I’ve had this figure since I was a kid and sure he’s dressed in hot pink and has a pet vulture. There is something about that figure that I liked ever since I opened the plastic back in the day.
For now, I’ll leave them all nicely wrapped up in the box. I will be upgrading the Man-Attic to have more display space for my Joes. As soon as that is complete, I won’t be able to resist building the triple-t and setting the figures up.
As always, happy collecting and Yo Joe!
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 🙂 )
