my motivations for buying the figures I have are varied. Obviously, some are ones I had as a kid. There's a LOAD that I got when I first started that I'd wanted as a kid; like Lady Jaye, Scarlett, Ripcord, Stalker, Dusty, the Snow Cat and Frostbite, Crankcase and the AWE Striker. There's a load I got because I liked the character in the comics, like Airborne, Charbroil, Hit&Run, Spearhead and Max and Tunnel Rat. Some like Mutt and Junkyard, Blowtorch and Alpine I got so I had the majority of the carded figures from 1985 and 1987 over here.

Then there's a few I got because I was basically trying to build a coherent Joe army, like Recoil, Bulletproof, Stretcher, and these last three.

I also got the Action Team set, Action Man and Joe Colton because I thought they were cool figures and wanted them. I'd still love to get the Natalie Poole con figure to go with AM.

final one of the recent batch of my purchases (I had a rebate I spent), a second Cobra Officer, this one with the 1985 Pallitoy style cardback, this is the rear of the cardback, because the photo I took of the front came out blurry as hell. The large image at the top shows the range of figures available carded in 1985 as well as the re-released remote operated vehicles called PAC-RATs in the US, and the 'Shaft', 'Dart' and 'Lance' (L-R) in the UK, they were originally part of the AF line, in Z-Force. The smaller left side image is for the mail-away 'Action Force Infantryman', who was actually Grunt of GI Joe.

I HATE the plastic used for those brown guns. Wrecks an otherwise OK figure from the era of pretty hit-or-miss figs.

Ah, you can't just stop at 100. C'mon, you know you want more.

I'm going to get more Cobras. But the only Joes I want now are vehicle drivers and vehicles or two con exclusives and I'm reluctant to spend that kind of money.

I love seeing a collection get new stuff. Keep posting!

I had to get like 5 Saw Vipers before I got one with an unmarked up head. Still looking for a Technoviper with perfect silver (I can't bear to open my carded one). Backpack should be easy to replace.
