    Who here still displays their G.I. Joe collection?

    Two more of the G.I. Joe shelves in my game room.

    3 3/4 scale accessories

    Any advice on where to find some nice Joe sized accessories? I see lots of dioramas with chairs and other items. I would love to hear suggestions. I remember long ago I got some nice bunk beds and lockers from a knock off line at Big Lots. But seems now adays people have all sorts of cool things. Even scale sized arcade machines, etc. Any advice or suggestions?

    Merry Christmas!

    To any of my old friends from around the 2000s still lurk here from time to time. Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays! Hope you are all well!

    Merry Christmas!

    Oh wow that is great! It has been a while since I got a vintage Joe. I should remedy that sometime soon. Long ago I sold off all of my vehicles because I didn't have space. Now I have space again, so I am really itching to get some of the vehicles back.

    Star Wars Toy Hauls

    Those figures look awesome Devilbat. Thanks for sharing the pics. I may have to pay more attention to them when I am making my toy runs. If I catch some of the deep sales you have stumbled into I might have to indulge myself.

    July 2018 Toy Haul thread

    Scored a Power of the Primes Walgreen's Exclusive Wreck-Gar today and an Optimal Optimus yesterday. Been a darn good week for Transformer hunting.
  9. Anyone having any luck finding these last two dinobots? I have barely seen any of this wave here in KY. I think maybe 2 times I have seen a scraggling leftover on a peg that indicates this wave has at least made an appearance in my town. But for the most part every store I go to is just filled with Jazz and other pegwarmers from the previous wave. What gives?
  10. I have been browsing Big Bad Toy Store checking out the in stocks and the pre orders. Man I am STOKED to get that Power of the Primes Optimal Optimus. It looks like an amazing toy. What upcoming Transformer can you just not wait to get your hands on? Phanstar
  11. Oh cool! I had never heard of that one but I googled it and it looks amazing. It feels like there is so much going on in the Transformers world anymore it is hard to keep track of it. I mean, there is at least 3 if not 4 toy lines being run simultaneous at general retail stores. Plus what seems like several online specific lines for collectors. It's a bit overwhelming. Definitely a big difference from the early 2000's when it went from Beast Machines, to RiD. Then there was the occasional noteworthy Japanese release or something.

    Nintendo Pro Wrestling Figures

    I would absolutely buy these. That's a fantastic idea.
  13. What sites do you guys go to in order to know what is out, what is coming out and what is going on? I am sort of just getting back into toy collecting. Seems a lot has changed. Like what the hell is it just me or are there at least 3-4 Transformers lines being released all at the same time?
  14. Sorry I am sure this has been discussed to death but I have been gone about 10 years or so. I have to say I really don't care for any of the changes or attempts they have made at new style figures. I think they look strange and oddly proportioned. Also I have spent hundreds of dollars collecting old style figures, why do I want new figures that don't really fit or look right with the collection? I bought the new stuff for a while because I was holding on to a dream, but eventually I accepted I hated them and sold them all off and started just collecting vintage figures. There are still plenty I don't have. Any one else feel this way?

    Reaction Figures

    Does anybody here collect the ReACtion figures? I have seen them in stores several times and always thought they were great, but I never had a compelling reason to buy them. Just recently I got a shed that has allowed me to reclaim my garage as a play space so I have been trying to decorate it and get it set up with fun stuff. I found a perfect place where hanging a few Reaction figures would really fit the theme, so now I find myself as usual, late in the game trying to track them down. What brick and mortar stores sell them, does anyone know?
  16. And yesterday I stopped off randomly at a Walgreens and found Sludge! Finally I have completed my Power of the Primes Dinobot collection. Whew!

    Where are all my old school brothers at?

    Anybody else still load these forums up occasionally and look for anything going on? I probably stop by here 2 or 3 times a week.

    I found a Snarl late last month. Finally. Now just Sludge is left.

    GI Joe Collections

    Wow. Those look great! Kind of making me want to get a new Joe toy. It's been a while. When was the last time any of you bought anything GI Joe? Even something vintage?
  20. Wow got lucky! I went in to Wal Mart two days ago to get something completely unrelated but of course checked the toy aisle. The Transformers section was practically empty except for one lonely Snarl just hanging there. So bizarre. It had a crease in the card but I don't care because I open mine anyways. Lucky day for me! Now if I can just find a Sludge I will have them all. Unrelated note, what's up with this MISPSTeve guy spamming the Transformer's board? I went looking for this thread to post an update and it was already buried 3 or 4 pages deep!
  21. Yeah I am on more than I would like. I work on a PC most of the day and the internet is a constant distraction. (This post is case in point.) I have gotten a bit better about my phone and social media though. It can get overwhelming, depressing, and just so distracting from the things I would rather be doing. I have my moments where I will post or thumb scroll facebook or Instagram, but I try not to obsess over it very much or dedicate TOO much time to it. I do enjoy messenger and texting as a way to keep in touch with friends. I would say I use that more than anything anymore. Honestly the concept of "online" has become so abstract I don't even really know how to answer that. I mean if you mean sitting in a chair surfing the web, that's one thing. Playing online games? Or does having my phone in my pocket and getting and receiving messages from Facebook Messenger count?
  22. Just this past week Grimlock has been popping up in Lexington everywhere. Meijer's had like 6 of them the other day. I lucked upon him months ago and never saw him again until last week. Last week I saw him in quantities at 3 stores. So yeah, Hopefully!
