I also stopped at Strange Adventures as well. It wasn't a bad place, but the sales staff seemed a bit off. Other than that is was just your normal, run-of-the-mill comic shop with stuff piled to the ceiling. Really clean though, no cobwebs of nothing.


There's another Strange Adventures store in Fredericton, here in NB.  It's much smaller, but it's carried the GI Joe DVDs/VHS tapes before.  Also worthy of note if you ever get to Moncton is Gamezilla.  They had the MASS Device DVDw/Snake Eyes at one point.  Oh, if only I'd had the money before it was sold!!   :(

The Moncton Gamezilla is cool!

There's also a Gamezilla in Fredericton.

Many of the Joe DVDs I've gotten so far I bought from www.dvdboxoffice.com as they ship for free, have only 7% GST and usually better prices than in stores. For instance, Gamezilla has Joe Season 1 part 2 at $80, Futureshop has it at $70, and I got it from DVDBoxOffice for $55. They're a Canadian online company out of Richmond Hill.

Checked out Odyssey 2000 the other day, disappointed that they didn't have any Joes whatsoever, or vintage anything really. To be quite honest it seemed like a run of the mill comic/magic card shop, and as such not as interesting as Strange Adventures, which had a lot more cooler stuff (though again, no Joes).

There's a shop on Barrington St (I think), sort of between the base and Staples, that had a nice selection of vintage Joes. Can't remember the name though...

Well it has been three years since my last trip. It's too bad to hear they dumped their vintage toys.

If you come back, check out that other store I mentioned. The selection wasn't huge or anything, but it was decent. I'll go back sometime this week and get the actual name...

Apparently, the vintage stuff comes and goes, I was in the other day and he had some 25th comic packs, and I picked up a couple of GI Joe vs. Cobra figs, a V3 Dr Mindbender w/Mission Disc, and the Spytroops Depth Charge w/Wave Crusher. He was telling me he hadn't had anyone in selling Joe stuff in a while.
