  1. I've been checking too. Sadly....nothing in Northern Missouri either. BUT.....I have seen 25th stuff popping up at other closeout places so there is hope. Big lots still has to set thier christmas layout and that usually means a huge expansion in the toy department. Probably see them soon if we're going to at all this year. Personally I am hoping to find a blowtorch. THAT'S THE ONLY FIG I NEVER SAW ON A PEG!!! I got everything else.

    Good finds

    I go back from time to time, but I haven't seen anything GIJOE at all since. Unfortunately the Saint Joseph area isn't much of a Joe hotspot.

    About a year ago I popped into an antique mall about twenty minutes north of my hometown. While wandering around looking at old pop bottles, books and betty boop crap with my wife I saw a deal. It was not as classic as what the OP found, but every bit as rare. It was a MOC 1997 15th anniversary Viper with Trouble bubble. It was just hanging on a random hook in a booth filled with quilts and other garbage; clearly the seller had no idea what he/she had. But it was a consignment store so the attendant didn't care, she just sold according to prices marked. The card was dusty, but flawless otherwi
  4. Wish I was there..... Really diggin some of it. Those SE and SS costumes/statues are awesome!!! Also loved the Chopper. Still not sure about those emperial guard wanna-be's though. Bring back the crimson helmets and blue helmets...maybe in a sequel???
  5. I AGREE TO ALL OF THE ABOVE!!!! Plus, dreaming here, but I WOULD LOVE a 25th USS FLAGG and Skystriker!!!
  6. From the looks of this picture, your memory served you correct. I'll admit it, I'm aroused I remember the days going to Kiddie City and Children's Palace and seeing this above picture. And just think, this pic is from what 1983-84. Now imagine that same image every year until 1990 (Kiddie City went under in 1985, but Children's Palace made it until 1990 and TRU is still going). As for what was bigger? GI Joe easily. Everyone I knew had a cache of Joes and vehicles. Yeah, everyone had some He-Man and Transformers but GI Joe was boss. He-Man was pretty much done by the time Joe
  7. Tatum as Duke doesn't bother me, but Gordon-Levitt as the Comander I am havin a hard time with. I have no fantasy cast for CC, but if I did, it sure wouldn't be the kid from Third Rock. Despite my own perceptions of Duke's age over the years, I have always pictured the Comander as much older, like late forties or possibly 50. The idea of a Palpatine-like figure around 30 years old is a little hard to swallow. Eccleston as Destro I am just going to have to see. Destro is just one of those characters that cannot be seemlessly crossed over to film, so I can't say much there without seeing mor
  8. I always thought of Duke as about 35 years old. In 1988 when I was only 10, this seemed older than it does now at 31. These characters were introduced in the early 1980s and never seemed to age. In fact, sometimes they actually seemed to get younger. In the comics I know they slightly referenced age, but the imagery hardly changed at all. The toys on the other hand had no consistency at all in regards to age. Hawk did take on a more distinguished look from V1 to V2, but he also went from one hair color to another. The truth is, Tatum is nearly 30. Had he enlisted when he was 18, he'd be a
  9. I too am getting more excited. I know I would have loved this as a kid!!! As a kid, at the peak of ARAH, there were constant changes and we all seemed to adapt just fine. Every year there were new characters, character modifications and here and there hierarchel changes. It's an expanding universe. this movie might be viewed as a part of that expansion or maybe a new addition to the "multi-verse" as witnessed by the major difference between the cartoon, the comics and sometimes the file cards.
  10. I've read books FIRST and love them but hated the MOVIE. I've seen movies and loved it so much I bought and read the book it's based from, and HATED it. Whichever we become a fan of FIRST...we kind of cling to a little harder. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I completely agree with this!!! This is why Hollywood (for the most part) ignores us "enthusiasts" because they know short of filming a frame-by-frame, cell-by-cell recreation of what we know and love....we just won't be happy. Unfortunately this is not 1985

  12. They have a small toys section too. They are listed at 9.99 but quite often their toys go on sale at 30 and 40% off. So watch them.
  13. http://cgi.ebay.com/GI-Joe-25th-Anniversar...id=p3286.c0.m14 I know it isn't really a WTF auction so much as a WTF buyers response here....I live in Saint Joseph, Missouri and these series 1 Flints were hanging around everywhere early on and I bought a few (although even when I buy a Joe I intend to sell I usually think up an excuse for keeping it instead). Blows my mind that this figure is (at the time of this post) at $41!!! I've seen nice vintage carded figures go for less than that!!! What the hell is it with this figure? Yellow Stalker...I get it. Snake Eyes w/ Black Timer...get it. B
  14. I was just going to post this. What kind of dumba$ would buy this? Apparently quite a few dumba$es...there's 22 bids on that! Are there collectors out there that are really that stupid? I found the same Neo Viper at a thrift store the other day for a quarter. I should start saving the packages for my toys and stick a POTF2 Stormtrooper in a Cobra Viper card or something, sell it on eBay: "Ultra rare cross-license error card!" This thing sold for 96.00?????
  15. Hey all....don't post often but I saw this auction and I just had to put it out there. Look close, the plastic backing dosen't even match the 4'' scale of the 25th line. This guy is an idiot, I don't know what that makes the guy who buys it....currently 22 jokers fighting over it. http://cgi.ebay.com/RARE-GI-JOE-25th-cobra...id=p3286.c0.m14
