General Joe Talk / Canada availability?
« on: July 22, 2020, 11:01:12 AM »
So, 6" Wave 1 has hit shelves in the US and Retro went up for pre-order at Wal-Mart. As I recall, at there was evidence of a bill of lading showing GI Joe had landed in Canada. Any word on retail availability?

Items Wanted / APC (B.A.T) Transport part wanted
« on: November 23, 2008, 11:47:51 AM »
I recently sold a MISB APC Transport and when the buyer opened it it was missing the front canopy cover! Very annoying. I'd like to find one for him. Anyone have this piece to spare? I know, it's a long shot.

Message Board News / Frag-Vipers suck?
« on: May 10, 2008, 05:37:44 PM »
Looking forward to my next level of Viper (in board status terms) it made me wonder why Frag-Viper ranks so low? I mean I would think it would take some training and skill to use their equipment effectively and stealthily. Is there a comic/cartoon/canon/historical reason why they're quasi-junk? Why be hatin'?

TONS of parts from ?80s, early ?90s - ask me if you?re looking for something specific



Also seems like zillions...I have bunch of other accessories ? ask me if you?re looking for something specific

Star Wars Republic Gunship v1
Cobra Hammerhead, 100% Complete including complete driver (It?ll take a big trade to get me to part with this one)
My approach is going to be: "make me reasonable offers". I think we have a good community here and you guys more than anyone know what this stuff is worth - but it is by no means a fire sale. I am sure we can agree to prices or fair trades. Ask if you're looking for something specific - I might be willing to part with it.  Here's what I'm looking for:


25A HISS Driver
25A Viper
Viper v3 (Sonic Fighters)
Valor vs Venom Duke and Iron Grenadier (Wal-Mart Exclusive) x2
Storm Shadow v1 (?84) Figure only, in good shape without yellowing
Kamakura v1 - LOTS! (or just the heads)


Wanted Vehicles (in order of priority):

Cobra Hurricane V.T.O.L complete w/ or without Vapor
Cobra B.U.G.G. (complete with or without Secto-Viper)
Firebat, complete
Target Exclusive HISS

Cobra Terror Drome
Cobra Stinger or Rattler 4-WD, complete (no figure necessary)
Cobra Ringneck

If you?re in the Ottawa area, you can arrange to pick up.

As for who I am, well, I?m Pete, a lifelong Joe fan since ?82 and a Real Canadian "GI Joe" for sometime. I was at the Joe meet in Hamilton that BHT (Mike) hosted a few years back, when the original custom carded Joe Canuck was on offer. In fact, I?m the one who cast the heads from Loop?s awesome sculpt. I was honoured to be a part of (and have a piece in) Canadian Joe history. I look at this as another small way to celebrate a special 25th anniversary.

I've done successful trades on the board in the past year with C_Money_Collins and THE Mike? (i.e. our Mike).
My eBay score.

General Joe Talk / The Southern Desert of Joes
« on: February 25, 2008, 06:40:29 PM »
So I'm in Tampa, FL today for business and poked around and the local toy emporia... and it really IS a desert for Joes. I saw a Roadblock, Duke and Scarlett singles and that was about it it terms of what we can't find in Canada. And two of the TRU's indicated in my GPS don't even exist anymore... The only positive is that what they have is about 1/3 less than what we pay.  >:(

One gem I did find was a Corps ATK at WM. I've loved the look of that vehicle since I first saw it. Now I just have to figure out how I'll get it home in my miniature luggage.

Other than that my impression of Tampa so far is very poor. A bunch of cars, roads and malls. Indistinguishable from say Tysons Corners, VA... and it probably has less green. Maybe I'll find out if it has a soul tomorrow...

Ontario / Singles at Zellers?
« on: February 02, 2008, 06:25:42 PM »
In case someone didn't see my post in the Comic thread... I saw two empty pegs that said GI Joe Single Figure $7.99! I assume the product had not arrived yet. There was a blue tag on them that said "CR" Any clue what that means? Anyone have Zellers connections?

The \'Show\' Room / The Cobra Room / Man Cave

In honour of the arrival in Canada of the 25th Anniversary Joes as announced by Stealth Viper (though not yet seen at my local TRU in Ottawa), I figured I'd share my collection, finally set up and in pictures for the first time!

CC sez: Rock on! 

Leadership, CG and the Legions

Customs, BATS and Specialists

Serpentor and friends, Aerospace, Naval, PP, Environmental and Iron Grenadiers

Vehicles, Playsets

A special thanks goes out to the camera for highlighting the dust I missed. Not the whole collection. My Rattler is out on top of one of my display cases, but I forgot to get a good pic. A key absentee is my Cobra Hammerhead... I'll have to find room for that baby. I also have tons of MOC stuff - a lot which I intended to open to fill out the ranks. The ranks, though, are pretty full... except for those blueshirts. I can't seem to get myself to tear open any more of the MOC 6-packs ... and I have 8 ... I mean, come on...  :-

Anyway, enjoy!

Just did a trade with rodsboys in Edmonton. Very fast transaction and great comms. My only regret is that I didn't get my trade out as fast as he did.

Thanks Tony! Hope to trade with you again!  :thumbsup:

For Sale or Trade / JoeCanuckians: My Trade List
« on: February 17, 2004, 10:32:10 PM »
I figured I would post here first and see the response. I do have a crap-load of stuff to trade, so let me know if you can help a Canuck brother out.

General Joe Talk / Close-to-Joe stuff
« on: February 16, 2004, 01:37:55 PM »
Has anyone else been intrigued by the Justice League Javelin 7 aircraft by Mattel? I picked one up today @ Evil-Mart. Very cool looking! Kinda reminded me of a Hurricane VTOL (similar colour even). Reasonably well sized for Joes. The cockpits are a little big, but are probably not beyond hope. It will make a good custom vehicle, when I have time to do such things again. But it doesn't make sounds, unlike the manufacturer's assertion. (What? No Sound Attack?  :wink: )

Here are some pics:

Review here, but I think the reviewer is being a bit generous. ... 30830.html

Also, anyone still interested in or want some old Corps! stuff, like the Parachutist or the Mountaineer? Or that jet-glider thing? I just discovered some today.

I also came across a whole bunch of Corps! Star Force two-packs @ 3.99. Great custom fodder and some look uncannily like the Cobra Astronaut in Image Comics GI Joe #2.
