The Doctor is in...
« on: August 17, 2013, 07:37:20 PM »

Finally got a Dr. Venom.  I wish it was a loose one though.



Now all I have to do is wait until my Kwinns come in from SJ, and my modern era (carded) Snake Eyes, Kwinn and Venom will be reunited.

Its a GIJOE club exclusive. It was made along with 4" figures from the classic Adventure team, and accompanying vehicles. They are in the 25th anniversary style.

They made Monev, aka Dr Venom, from the early Marvel comics, Adventure Team Commander, Land Adventurer, Air Adventurer and Sea Adventurer based on the '70s 12in Joes. The vehicles were all redecos of existing ones, a 25th FANG became the AT helicopter, in a fetching bright yellow colour scheme, there was an AT ground vehicle and a redeco Mantis sub (IIRC) for the Sea Adventurer.

The Club is sold out of the AT Commander/Dr. Venom set, so Ebay is about the only route for that. A quick check shows the Doc is going for a minimum of about $140-ish, so figure the Commander is about the same. The Land, Sea, and Air adventurers and their vehicles look to be going for about $70 each, so tally that up to about $500 for the entire set from Ebay.

The Club will be comparable for the last three sets, because you'll also have to factor in the $80 cdn membership fee just to be able to buy the sets they may still have in stock.

IF you're wondering who Dr. Venom is, I recommend the following issues of the Marvel run:

G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #10   http://www.yojoe.com/comics/joe/joe10.shtml
G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #12   http://www.yojoe.com/comics/joe/joe12.shtml
G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #13   http://www.yojoe.com/comics/joe/joe13.shtml
G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #14   http://www.yojoe.com/comics/joe/joe14.shtml
G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #15   http://www.yojoe.com/comics/joe/joe15.shtml
G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #16   http://www.yojoe.com/comics/joe/joe16.shtml
G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #17   http://www.yojoe.com/comics/joe/joe17.shtml
G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #18   http://www.yojoe.com/comics/joe/joe18.shtml
G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #19   http://www.yojoe.com/comics/joe/joe19.shtml


It'll also give you everything you need to know about the new Wave 3.5's Tracker Kwinn...
(Well, them and G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #2   http://www.yojoe.com/comics/joe/joe2.shtml )

Wow if i keep finding stuff like this and they keep pumping out sdcc figures in the 25th ann. style im never gonna be able to catch up...Thats good though...The toy hunt is always more fun then actually having it.

Kwinn and Snakes just busted loose from their Snake armour.  And they're not happy!

 :o

I've been on the lookout for a loose Venom for a while.  One recently popped up in eBay, and great-googly-moogly, did that auction ever skyrocket.  Still 2 hours to go, and way past what I bid on the MOC version!
