No Defiant for me, no room.

I'd like the MSV set to go with my Char D'Assault (consumers tank).

That or a nice Viper Glider to go with my Falcon Glider.

I sold some spares at a show back in March before COVID shut everything down and made a fortune. ARAH prices are INSANE right now.

I can't say I've bought much in ages though a buddy has been picking up the new 6" figs for me even though I was waffling on getting them. He's managed to find everything but the Cobra Island stuff with constant visits to TrU. I decided to get them to reward his persistence but I haven't opened any of them.

Collection is still out on display minus the Flagg and HQ due to space constraints. I can't say I've TOUCHED anything in 2 years or so other than dusting.

Oh, I bought that retro AWE Striker. I liked the sturdy box!

I stumbled across an AWE Striker and a Snake Eyes at different times. I go to WM all the time looking for TFs and these retro items are WAY rarer than the rarest TFs.

Hopefully we'll see some more stock in the new year but I'm already not liking the changes to the FANG I've seen.

I was able to order Roadblock, Destro and Scarlett. While my order sat idle, product made it to stores, sold out, and then my unfulfilled order was cancelled by Walmart. Not fun.

Figures look great though!

Sorry I'm not here much.

It doesn't cost very much money to keep *this* site going. As long as you guys want it around, I'll make sure it's around. Over the summer I was looking into finding the old assets for the message board (banners/colours/etc) but I think they're gone forever.

I've been going to school for writing over the past couple years. Maybe that will translate into more content for gijoe-canada.com

It's been a while since I bought anything GI JOE related.  Pretty sure the last thing I bought was some bootleg figures in the spring.  I want to see the new product in stores to see if I would have any interest in it. 

As for vintage, the last thing I bought was a Mexican version of Shipwreck to complete the entire Mexican 3 3/4 line.  That was around 8-9 years ago.   Getting Shipwreck was my last holy grail.  Already had the complete run of 3 3/4 figures from Argentina and Brazilian and the rare European figures.  So that thrill of the hunt was done.   

The only other figures I would have a mild interest are the rare funskool figures.  However, getting married (don't want to explain to the wife I dropped a couple grand on a toy from India) and buying a house in Markham 10 years ago were the final nails in the coffin in terms of going after the rare Funskool figures.  Getting rid of my mortgage became the new goal. 

I have only displayed a small portion of my collection.  I have two small kids and don't want them near my vintage figures.  I am in no mood to re-buy them as the vintage market has gone stupid in terms of prices.   

The one thing I am glad is that I was able to get all the vintage figures with their original accessories before this bootleg crap started happening.  I have zero interest in fake accessories to replace the real mccoy ones.
