New Joes!

Hey guys,

sorry for the lack of posts. I’ve been very busy at work. Writing a brief for a case and the record is 180 THOUSAND pages , so a lot of late nights reading this thing. Anyway, back to the Joe stuff!

I picked several MOC/MIB Tiger Force items! First up is a UK Action Force MIB Tiger Paw. I also snagged a MOC TF Tunnel Rat and Sneak Peek from Europe! The packaging is not in English so they are the UK release (but they are identical).

GI Joe Weapon Transport Variants

Hey guys so as I pull back on the amount of purchases this month, I will be posting pictures of interesting items in my collection. First up are the 1985 Weapon Transport and its international variations. This vehicle is often over looked and that has made collecting it and variations of it easy to do. Below are pictures of the US release, the Argentina (Plastirama) release, and the India (Funskool) version. The US vehicle is on the far right of the pictures and is in an olive drab/green color. The light green variant is Funskool, and the dark/bright green is from Argentina. You may also notice that with the Funskool version, the wheels are black while the US and Argentina versions are more grey. They are all pretty affordable at about $15 each plus shipping. In my experience, the Funskool version was a little harder to come across.

MOC Major Bludd and MOC Plastirama Destro!

Both of these pieces will be arriving in the mail this week! First up is a MOC 1983 Major Bludd. The bubble has some lifting on the right side however, it is still attached and was an absolute steal at $37! I’ll take a little imperfection if it means I get it MOC and save several hundred bucks in the process. 

Second, I grabbed a MOC Plastirama (Argentinian) Destro! The card is in GREAT shape for something from Argentina and as a bonus, it is unpunched! It is a much cheaper and easier buy then the US release Destro which runs $200-500 depending on condition.
