Can you imagine walking in on a battle. 300 little blue and green laser blasts going back and forth. I mean it is possible, nobody ever dies in the cartoon so how would we know right. Plus it would explain why so many parts and peaces go missing.

I bet if Freddie Mercury was still alive, he'd look a lot like SpaceShot on stage. A Big Boa stand with the bag cut off for a mike. It might work.

Damn you guys. now i gotta get a 60$ Space Shot to motivate my other Joe's. Im glad there's a dont ask don't tell policy on my display shelves.  ???

General Joe Talk / Need help figuring out a variant
« on: June 21, 2014, 10:07:37 PM »
Figure: Zartan color changing face variant 25th ann. single card.

I bought a Zartan of a guy on kijiji. When i looked at it i noticed it did not have the "color changing face" sticker on the card. Instead there was some kind of residue exactly where the sticker is supposed to be. But its only very, very slight residue. I imagine if someone was to peel the sticker off on purpose it would create a lot more damage then what is on my card. ???

Couple months latter i get one WITH the sticker on the card. I looked and looked ( in person and online ) to see if there was a diff. between them but no luck.

Anyway to the question : Does anybody know if there is variation on the figure itself that could help me find out if i have the variant ?  Or is there perhaps a diff. seriel # on the card between them ?

Thanks brothers

I made a funny observation over my last 4 trips to my local wallmart.

First trip: One case of new Spiderman marvel legends on the pegs. Just enough to build the green goblin build a figure and have one extra figure left on the peg.

Second trip: Some brave soul payed 136$ plus tax to build that goblin because there was only the one extra build a figure peace left.

TURD trip: Still only the same 1 figure left on the peg waiting for his buddys to show up.

Fourth trip: 5 pegs FULL from front to back, nothing but new marvel legends. Sitting there not selling.

They will be in the discount section before long. Hopefully there will still be a complete set when they move it to the dicount section. Thank you mystery marvel legends buyer for getting one over on wallmart.

To quote John Lovitz " He's lost his mind and im reaping all the benifites "

Good one.

 This back and forth tussel these guys are talking about reminds me of when i was a we lad on the the school playground arguing with the other boys over who was gonna get witch g.i joe.

See we can still have fun with g.i joe even though they arn't going to be making any more.

And isn't that what the gi joe brand set out to do all those years ago. Bring us closer together. ( oh...oh,,,!@**BLAH%#@~...)
Sorry, i just trowed up in my mouth a little.

I like cake    ???

Off Topic / Re: Loosing my interest in G.I. Joe
« on: June 21, 2014, 08:04:22 PM »
You're not the only one, Morg.

My interest in GI joe greatly declined a few years ago.

But this year, a month ago to be exact now, I decided that Gi joe and I are done, going forward. I'll keep what I like (or want to display). The rest, I will be bringing with me at shows, and not look back with any regrets. And as opposed to my doubles, if someone wants the items in my collection, they'll have to expect to pay the asking price or I keep them. Anyway, the way I see it, EBay's international shipping and brokerage standard costs have changed dramatically over these last years, that it makes the collectibles that you find at local sellers/ conventions look cheaper, provided that the price is the actual going rate for the item, and not something blown out of proportion.

I am starting to feel the same way about g.i joe lately as the rest of you guys.
For me the " completist " is strong within me and ill explain why. I only started collecting g.i joe a meer 3 years ago so its still relitively new too me. But if youv seen one one youv seen em all, am i right guys ? Anyway the thing that really kills me about being a completeist is: I KNOW THAT THE FIGURE I JUST ORDERED IS A PEACE OF CRAP, BUT I HAD TO ORDER IT BECAUSE IF I DONT, I CANT FINISH MY COLLECTION !!!....OR I KNOW THE THING I JUST ORDERED IS 300$ PLUS 86$ SHIPPING BUT. .  I HAD TO HAVE IT TO FINISH MY COLLECTION. Sure i was able to keep strong willed while collecting 25th ANN. Where ( lets say 1 in 7 is a peace of junk ) that i can handle. And then the new more realistic figures of P.O.C with the awesome lowlight, dusty, moneybags destro, shock trooper, shadow tracker, rock viper. We didn't mind having to collect the 4th crappy wind kick versions of snake eyes and storm shadow and peg warmmer destro ( small price to pay for a completist for such an awesome series of figures )...

Then we hit RETALIATION and everything changed.... I remember when i saw the first wave it def. made me take a step back and say " I have to collect this crap now ! "  Then they give us a slap in the face with the awesomest set of figures in 2 years with the wave 3.5 stuff and the eaglehawk. BASICALY making every completist go " WHATS THE POINT, I MIGHT AS WELL GO HOME AND PUT ALL THE FIGURES AND VEHICLES I DON'T REALLY REALLY REALLY LIKE UP FOR SALE "

But there are ways around feeling like this about joe's folks. ONE WAY; Don't try to be a completist of ALL things g.i joe. Pick a certain series ( NOT RETALIATION, LOL ) and just try complete that one.

Another way would be, back away from the g.i joe table for a while. Don't sell'em, dont trade'em, dont give em away. Just dont think about them, leave them right where they are stored ( hopefully there not in your face all day everyday cluttered around your big screen and on strings hanging from the ceilling in your living room ) and then one day when you do descide to return to the g.i joe game you will be super pumped you still have'em.

As a collector, my habits also changed. I always said that I would never walk into a Thrift shop, mainly out of pride. Well, screw pride. I saved tons more money than I ever could imagine by going there, and not on collectibles, but on clothing and children's books too. And even found toys that I enjoy collecting for a mere fraction of what I used to inject into the hobby. I used to be a completist, but in order to keep up with the ever increasing pricetags, I knew I was going to hit a wall financially someday If I kept this up, and I almost did several times, so I had to accept to come down from that pedestal for good, and I feel really GREAT now. To the point that an incomplete action figure for 50 cents but in great shape makes my day.

Well theres no point in arguing anymore. The Rangers put the Canadians to bed. Its over folks. You know who im happy for...?  The kids that get to shine the Montreal Canadians golf clubs. We should all be very happy for them. Sure the Montreal Canadians are OUT, GONE , DONE for this seasone, but @ least some kid somewhere gets to make 83$ this summer shinning clubs. LOL  ;D

Will there be another touchdown tonight for the NY Rangers?  lol

Price is officially out for the rest of the Eastern Final conference, due to his injury caused by New York's Chris Kreider who rammed into the net with his skates on Price. Did you know this isn't his first time that he goes at goalie in this fashion? Fact. Rangers knew Price had to beaten in order to win the Series. Congratulations Rangers.  just wasn't counting on the fact they'd beat him litteraly so to speak.
COOL we get to hear the excususe " Well if we would have had Price things would be different " for six months. Come on! Montreal crashes Lunquist just as good as they get. They just unfortunatly got thr shitty end of the stick in this occurence. Further more i dont blame Price one bit for faking and making a slight injury seem a lot, lot worse, If i was Price i would want to get as far, far away from the montreal canadians as i could because i know they are gonna blow the series.

Cudos to Price, only smart Montreal player there is. He gets outta the way early so his name is not attached to the major lose they are about to suffer
