I was a late adopter to listening to the two main Joe podcasts in the community: Flag Points and WOJM. I have listened to all of FP and now 11 episodes of WOJM. I have to say I prefer FP so far. And Chuck on WOJM is something…
I have also been busy collecting prototypes. I have picked up unassembled resin prototypes of eco warriors BBQ and Deep Six. I also snagged 83 Scarlett and a test shot 1982 cobra officer.
Tomorrow is the big day I pick up a near complete 82-00 gi joe collection!!! I’ve rented a 14 foot uhaul to transport everything in. Pictures and thoughts to follow.
Well guys (haha all none of you) I just purchased a guy’s collection. Its just about the ENTIRE 82-94 line figures and vehicles! Plus he has everything from 95-00!!!!!! This is amazing. Very excited to pick everything up on Saturday. I will be posting tons of pictures!
I’m new to this and the spacing of the last post was all messed up. If anyone reads this, and knows how to format. Help!
This figure is even more impressive in person! Well worth the price. It honestly looks like I just ripped it out of the bubble when comparing it to my other 30th Anni and POC figures. It appears to use Airtight’s head and legs with modified boots. The torso, arms and hands are all unknown to me. The figure also has a waist piece that has been attached, giving the suit a little extra effect.
The chest has some new modeling/sculpting, maybe to allow for the chest piece to sit snugly on the figure.
The helmet is from the original Toxo Viper and repainted to match
I’ve added a few pictures of some of my collection. Still need to work on it but there is some progress!
Ever since I was a child playing with joes I always dreamed of having every figure. Unlike many, I never grew out of joes and I haven’t lost sight of that goal, even if there were times when I wasn’t collecting. I’m on a mission to complete my collection of all of the figures that Hasbro produced from 82-94. Currently I am 70 figures away from completing my goal. One of the aspects of this blog will be to follow my progress towards this goal and as I acquire new figures I will post a review of sorts about them.
What would the Leaky Suit Brigade be without a custom modern edition Toxo-Viper?!? I just acquired this guy on ebay from Ratfink, who I think is one of the better G.I. Joe customizers out there.
Well I have been busy buying more Joes! I’ve purchased 30 vintage figures and 20 modern figures. I have the entire set of Renegades Joes including the Amazon exclusive. I also picked up a MOC 1984 Mutt & Junkyard! I have something very special planned to display with that.
I am 70 figures away from completing the 82-94 run and as I have gotten closer to completing the vintage line I have been looking into different areas to expand my Joe collection. I am big into collecting international Joes and also have a growing collection of Joe prototypes and preproduction artwork!
More to come…
