  1. "therefore there is merchandise available to consumers..." Really??? Where?? My Wal-Marts have nothing and have had nothing for months now. The Joe section at TRU was almost bare when I last checked a month ago.
  2. So, with the summer quickly approaching us, I know a lot of us toy collectors/lovers turn to yard sales/garage sales and flea markets for those elusive finds. Anyone find anything good? Any interesting stories? Feel free to post pic's of recent finds!
  3. Sounds good! I plan on posting updated pictures in a few months when I get more things set up and organized.
  4. Just a heads up... Looks like the original Transformers series is now available for instant streaming on Netflix.
  5. Random question.......... will these be sold at retail (Wal Mart, Target, etc.) or just online or at specialty stores? I want the figures, just not interested in the game they seem to be associated with.
  6. I wish I could get tickets to see my Bears play the Titans this year in Nashville! That would rock.
  7. I'm loving the new Marvel sets! My wife and I picked up the Wolverine Helicopter set and the Iron Man/Loki Jeep set at the Lego Store in Nashville. Already have the Jeep set put together and it looks great!
  8. Yeah, I was reading some of my old posts in the Area Reports section and it looks like I tried to restart collecting around 2008, which I vaguely remember. I honestly think being married helps now because I can share my passion with my wife who is super supportive.
  9. Neat haul today... was at one of my local Goodwill stores today and they have one of those toy bins where everything is dumped out and you can fill a bag for $2.99. Anyways, I picked up a Magneto and Apocalypse figure from the later 90's, just haven't identified them yet. Also grabbed a Cyber Spawn figure and a TNMT figure.
  10. Hi there! Just wanted to re-introduce myself. My name is Gary and I've just got back into toys a few months ago after not collecting for a few years. I used to post on here several years ago (2007 maybe?). I also did some trading with a few of you when I got rid of my collection. I currently collect: Marvel/DC figures, GI Joe, Transformers, Hot Wheels, sports cards, knives, comic books and too much other stuff! I'm married with a super supportive wife and I work at Wal Mart. Thanks!
  11. Saw the Target wave today at my store. Managed to pick up a Wolverine variant and a Spiral. Very neat figures! Glad Im back to collecting!
  12. I counted our Rancors tonight. We have 8 left, which is probably how many we started with. Not too many basic figures left though. Plenty of the Order 66 2-packs, which reminds me I need to finish that set.
  13. Just saw the Rancor again today at work in the backroom, its gone clearance!! Currently $27.98, Im hoping to pick it up if it gets marked down again.
  14. Hey, I'm all for open discussion of topics here on the forum. But, before we discuss something, lets make sure its a real event, and not an "e-mail forward." Snopes is a great website to checkout for possible hoaxes... The Andy Rooney Hoax
  15. Here is a link to an ebay seller store that I buy from: TheEarthToyMall Ebay Store They sell the Protech Star Cases in different quantities.
  16. Finally found the figures in my area. My Target had them out and I picked up a Snake-Eyes and a Viper after I clocked out. Didn't see a Duke or Spirit though.
  17. As of yesterday my Target store had no exclusives left.
  18. Is there anywhere to go to get a comprehensive list of all Bowen busts' ever made?
  19. These look great. I stop and check them out whenever I'm at work and back in the toy section.
  20. Thanks for the info. I don't remember any Cobra playsets from when I was a kid. Just saw the Cobra Mountain from 2003, so thats a good option right there. I have thought about custom playsets. Just building something or repainting a Joe playset.
  21. Hi guys! Just wondering here... I'm planning on getting back into collecting Joes pretty soon and I plan on setting up dio's to best display the eventual collection I'll have. Question is, what Cobra playsets are out there? All I know if is the Terror Drome. Seems like the Joes have plenty with their headquarters, the mobile command center and that tactical battle platform. Thanks.
  22. the playset on the left in the picture is the Terror Drome (1986). The one on the right looks like a non-joe custom dio.
  23. Wow, $9.99 is a great deal. Their is a Tuesday Morning in my town so I'll have to go check it out to see if they have anything. I really do like the .45 scale as well. The only one I have (which I paid $30+ I think) is the Darth Vader from Episode III.
