I did not play with the 6-inches, so I can?t say.... but it would have been cool to make a 3-pack of exclusive oring figures (billy, pythona, dr venom). This would have been fantastic.

I took out a few of my collection out as well (they are under my stairs as well). I can?t say I need another hiss or another awe striker,  but it?s fun to see those being made again. I might dust off my collection just for the fun of it.

Seriously, the pogo and buzz boar are fun! LOL I just received my package...

But back to the topic, probably the defiant shuttle complex or the consumers tank (black mobat).

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?

Hello All, I may not know you guys as well as some of the other board members or not at but it's nice to see that the page isn't completely dead. To bad the Canadian Joecon's stopped was a great way to get out and meet other collectors and pick up some 3 and 3/4 inch vintage joes. I also still check the boards every once in awhile to see what's going on. Have to agree with B not a big fan of buying off ebay as prices are crazy for most ARAH stuff now.

Funny thing, I would buy the craziest vehicle of all time: the BUZZ BOAR!!! ;) Never found one at the right price, so if I had a lot, I would get it at the next opportunity!

I haven't bought any classic stuff for literally years after losing my job and other changes in life other than an odd figure here and there and even that was several years ago now. I did buy my first MTF figure and am currently debating buying some more when the relevant stock returns.

I won't touch the new 6in line with a barge pole as they've got the hideous chest hinges I despise in modern figures.

How can a buncha guys on the net do figures so well and a actual toy company do them so badly?

I'm going to say right up front, this message is going to go all over the place.

So with the whole Covid thing going on its kind of slowed life down a little bit and I managed to pull the ol' joes from the bins tucked under my stairs.
Started sorting through the figures again and it was great. I kind of laughed as the condition of some of the figures is worse then I remember, and way better then I remember on others. I actually have a lot less of the vintage 3 3/4 then I recall and way more of the more modern figures then I remember. Looking at it all I really am just loving the older stuff more and more. The sad part is the crazy prices that the figures are going for today. Getting a good deal is a lot harder for me to find as I like to go local. I don't have Ebay and I'm not into social media. I hadn't bought in awhile besides my recently acquired Flagg and just to see figures go for as much or more then some vehicles is crazy to me. It makes me wish I should have chased the old stuff harder way back in the early 2000's. :)

Anyways, it all brought back memories of childhood again. also brought back memories of the old yojoe-the pit yahoo mailing group. Then moving here in 2009(?) to connect with fellow canucks, which sadly I never really took the opportunity to really get to know. Family life took over and collecting took a back seat.

Anyways, I packed everything all back up for now (even the flagg) for another day.
Maybe a question for those who are still around somewhere; Is anyone still actively collecting the old stuff? Or is everyone moving to the new 6" stuff. Does anyone see the price ever coming down on the older things?

I've enjoyed watching some of the YouTube channels of HCC788,  Michael Mercy, Retro blasting, and Formbx257 (who I believe was (is?) a member here) but I still miss reading the new messages here. Where has everyone gone?

enough babbling for now.

Stay safe everyone.
