Off Topic / Combiner Wars
« on: February 18, 2015, 01:15:18 PM »
Anyone thinking about picking these up?

I bought the Arielbots minus the helicopter (can't find him yet) Dragstrip(?), and Powerglide. They're pretty cool and Superion certainty looks impressive. I thought the whole line was supposed to be all combiners but not the case after seeing Bombshell and others. That Devestator they're coming out with certainly looks impressive.

General Joe Talk / Foreign Dragonfly
« on: February 06, 2015, 04:55:38 AM »
Any one know what country produced a Dragonfly with the US flag with the colours inverted? Otherwise it seems to be the same. (I can't compare it together with the original)

Also, did the mail-away WHALE have the new Joe logo (90's version) for the decals and was a different green than the original?

General Joe Talk / Black Friday Kre-o sales
« on: December 17, 2014, 04:14:19 AM »
Anyone score anything from the Black Friday sales TrU had? Terror Dromes were $50, Platforms were $15, other stuff less. I managed to pick up about 2 of each set for less than $300 total.

General Joe Talk / '82 Joe poll (because polls are FUN!)
« on: June 03, 2014, 08:02:50 PM »
I'm collecting '82 Joes at the moment and I have an opinion on this but I'm wondering if anyone else has something interesting to add.

I'm personally finding that a non-discoloured Scarlett is the hardest to find. Cobra Commander or Zap may be more expensive but a Scarlett with a body near the same colour as her boots is really giving me trouble.

General Joe Talk / How much should I pay?
« on: April 17, 2014, 03:29:42 PM »
Hey Joesters,

I'm going to go look at a local WHALE for sale in the next couple weeks (the guy is busy with pilot week) and I'm on the fence about how much I'll offer him.

Here's the deal. I can mostly complete a second WHALE but I need the main body with unbroken front hinges and I'd like an unbroken launch mechanism but it's not critical. I'm willing to pay more for one with that and some decent other parts to kinda complete a couple more busted ones to sell mostly complete. I cannot tell from the pics if it's busted or not but will check in person.

Here's a list of issues I see just form the pics:
No cannon tips
Only 2 missiles
Only 1 depth charge
No windshield
No windshield on sled
Busted front handlebars on motorbike
Fans and cowlings but no other vane parts
Missing engine cover

Stuff that seems OK:
Missile boxes are attached and look OK
Front sled door is attached so shouldn't be busted
Front panels look present and unbroken
Depth charge holder looks OK

Can't see:
Bottom cover

IF the stuff is in the condition I mentioned I was thinking of offering $40 to essentially get the main body, 2 good missile boxes and a set of doors. This seems like a lot to me but shipping a main body would be extremely expensive from eBay or one of you good gentlemen.

Of course he's asking $120 for that and 4 incomplete figs, a FLAK, MMS with chassis and missile rack only, and about 10 random missiles. This is, of course, ridiculous.

I figured $50 for everything. Am I out of line even making the offer and should I just wait until a cheaper one comes along?

Any thoughts?

General Joe Talk / 1982 weapons, black vs. dark grey
« on: April 06, 2014, 02:35:04 AM »
I've started assembling my collection of '82 straight-arm Joes and I need an opinion.

It seems to me that the vast majority of available weapons for the '82 Joes are dark grey. I suspect the black weapons were only available in '82 and changed in '83, mostly due to the scarcity of the black versions. I have seen a couple of impressive collections in person so I have seen at least a couple of people who obsess over variants and perfect specimens don't sweat the black weapons and simply use dark grey ones. Anyone on here think it's worth worrying about? Also, anyone want to sell me any black weapons they don't want?

The \'Show\' Room / Nice score
« on: March 26, 2014, 04:42:49 AM »
So I went to check out some Joes for sale on Craigslist. Kinda blurry phone pics and what not but they showed promise.

So, lets see what we have here....

Why it's a set of damn near mint '82-'83 carded Joes only missing Snake Eye's explosives pack and and near complete Accessory Pack #1. Somebody doesn't like Cobra it seems. What other surprises to we have?

Why it's most of the carded Joes from 83-85 minus Airborne, Ripcord and all the Cobras again...Wait! There's a pretty fine complete Storm Shadow with only a busted bow and one yellowed inner thigh. There's a Thunder in there too, I DO need that monocular. Spirit has a busted crotch, Snow Job's gun is missing and Mutt's mask is too. This lot is pretty crap!

Oh, he has some vehicles, lets have a looksee...

This Vamp has no marks on it and expertly placed stickers....BUT no steering wheel. NEXT!

This RAM also has expertly place stickers and the sidecar ACTUALLY STAYS ON! BUUUUUT the seat has some scuffs. CRAP! NEXT!

This Polar Battle Bear has no yellowing but is missing the gun control arms. I'll NEVER find that part to fix it! NEXT!

This SHARC has a black thumbprint on it that's easily wiped off and no Deep Six. Who cares if it's otherwise perfect. GARBAGE! NEXT!

If I smashed the VAMP in frustration over the steering wheel why would I want this Whirlwind? How would I tow it? The Battle Bear? It can't go in the snow, it's GREEN! NEXT!

Hmmm. This Sky Hawk is OK I guess.... NEXT!

A second Sky Hawk? Now how can I choose between them? Pick neither I suppose.... NEXT!

OK. This Slugger is pretty cherry. Like it's right out of the box! Wait....


And here are the other boxes....

Now I have to see if he ever finds all the Cobra stuff!
