  1. Matt, I definitely want to trade. Hit me up at jpolidore@austin.rr.com

  2. This has been a great show over the past few years. There are going to be several 3 3/4" Joe sellers at the show this year. I will be there with a large selection of MOC and MIB RAH figures and vehicles. I will also have a ton of loose figures all under $5 each. MATT
  3. Needing GI Joe Milton Bradley cards. Want list can be found here. Thanks, MATT
  4. I have 2 different 25th Cobra Troopers. The first is from the 2008 wave 8 (some call it wave 12) that included the Ninja Viper and cartoon Diver. It has the red emblem and red mask, it also has an all black rifle. The second one is packaged and carded the same but it it has a black mask and the rifle has brown paint details. At first I though it was just a repack from someone returning figures but I am finding them all over the Dallas area. Where did this one come from? What wave? Is it just a running production change? It is different from the 5 pack ones that were released as singles do to having the red emblem instead of the silver. I can not find it listed in yojoe either. Can any one help with this? Thanks, MATT

    The PITT

    It has been a while since I posted here regularly but this thing has me very disappointed. Why have most of the large Joe playsets been dogs? It started with the 2nd headquaters (that we saw again for Street Fighters and in the RAH Collection era), the Cobra Mountain (lame SW remold), and now this strange item that Hasbro is calling the PITT. Star Wars collector are getting the Turbo Tank and last year got the 6 legged walker (AT-TE?) and this is the best they can come up with for Joe? In the past the justification has been a lack of interest and/or marketing (movie). Well last I checked we are getting a movie and interest is certantly on the rise. I expect more and better! Hasbro needs to stop cutting corners with Joe. The only way this one will make its way to my collection is when it reaches at least 75% retail on the clearance shelf, if even then. Hasbro we deserve and expect better!
  6. Just a reminder that the Great Texas GI Joe Show is this weekend at the Arlington Convention Center, where Wizard was held. There will dealers there with 3 3/4" items. And there will be a sneak preview of a certain ninja that was produced by a company other than Hasbro. He is here now in hand ready to be seen in public for before Toyfair! I was able to see it last night and it is better than any picture can do it justice. There is also a special offer to those that order him or one of "The Enemy!" figures at the show. Hope to see many of you there. MATT
  7. I would say that it is 50/50, those that take cards and those that don't. I would bring some cash. MATT
  8. Recieved this email about the Joe show that is here in the Dallas Area. It was a great one last year and I expect it to be even better this year. Worth the drive and I sold and bought as much at this show as I did at the Con. I have sold at the last 3 and have done very well and plan on selling at this one as well. MATT The Great Texas G.I. Joe Show will be back in 2009 - February 7th and 8th to be exact. The show will be at the same place as this year - the Arlington Convention Center , but we're moving into bigger digs to accommodate the dealers better and to also have an even bigger tank obstacle course. Cotswold Collectibles, Creative Diversions, and True Scale Armor are already on board, and the following are but a few of the dealers checking their calendars to see if they can make it: - Toy Chest and Collectibles - Echo Base Toys - Newline Miniatures - Plastic Panzers - Timewalker Toys - Ace Allgood - Guru Planet - The Toy Matrix - Eva's Junque Shop - Louis Simmons' 3&3/4" Figures Also, if you would like to be a dealer at this show, please gimme a holler at gbrown@whidbey.net. We'll be sure to keep this thread updated with more info as it becomes available. Hope to see you there! Greg Brown Great Texas G.I. Joe Show V www.greattexasgijoeshow.com
  9. I got my two that I ordered today. The box has woodgrain printing. MATT
  10. This picture was over at Joe Battle Lines. I don't remember seeing it or hearing about it at the con. It is a clear Wraith but where did this one come from?
  11. There will be at least 3 dealers there with 3 3/4" joe product, vintage, and all forms of modern and custom stuff.
  12. For the second year the local GI Joe club, along with the Houston club and the LSSR, will have a GI Joe show. There was a little bit of everything thing there last year. This year the event has moved to a new location in Arlington (near Six Flags, Rangers' Ballpark, and the new Cowboys stadium). I was there selling and so was Alyosha. The official GI Joe Collectors Club will be there as well. The official link is here. MATT
  13. Thanks guys. This was simple and quick to do. As soon as I can get some more stickers ordered and a pair of ant. from an AWE Striker I will have another one to post. MATT
  14. There is a custom troop/cargo transport. The base is a PTE Hummer with stickers from GI Joe Heaven. This will be in my dio for the convention this year. And the stickers from GIJ Heaven are great, well worth the price!
  15. I saw it yesterday at TRU as well. $30 though, and a little out of my toy funds for the moment. Nice piece though, add a little Cobra Blue to it, and REAL nice piece. Anyone have pics? MATT
