Mail day

This package arrived today. Another eBay purchase, great packaging and arriving before the date the seller said.

Inside are these…

I’m very glad to add more recent figures to my collection, but I have to say I’m a little underwhelmed. The other recent figures I have, are all still on the card. So these are the first loose ones I bought. Maybe it’s because I still look at the vintage Joes with the eyes of a 6 year old, but these new figures feel flimsy and cheaper than the vintage ones.

Even though I have my doubts about the new figures, I’m still happy to keep on expanding my collection.

I did however, buy some more vintage Joes on eBay that should be arriving next year…

Finally another 50th figure

Hi all,

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.IMG_20151215_163151

 

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 🙂

 

Happy Collecting!

Happy Holidays!

Kre-O, the saga continues :-)

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!

Skystriker patch 1988 – Belgium exclusive

image

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.
