  1. Nice. Classified represent.
  2. Just going to bump this up since the server has been seeing a lot of activity lately. Come join the chat GI Joe fans. Just remember to click this fresh invite : https://discord.gg/TSWf3aEj
  3. Just wondering what you guys think the unannounced Wave 4 Retro Vehicle will be? My thoughts are it will probably be a Joe vehicle instead of Cobra since we just got the FANG copter. Considering what molds still exist that they can choose from, maybe an Armadillo with a fig? Or the Snow Cat?
  4. Great post. I love the DTC Vehicles and have a ROCC still that I use with my vintage O ring Joes. At one time I had quite a few of the DTC figures and I did actually like that line. I think someone needs to come up with a definitive way to break down the various generations of 4 inch Joes. For me in my collection its: 'vintage style' O Ring Joes - This to me includes the entire vintage line, the 1997-2002 RAHC figs, and SOME Joe Vs Cobra figs. The defining factor for me is metal rivets. Modern O ring Joes - includes Joe Vs Cobra and anything with an O ring that doesnt have metal rivets 25th Anniversary/ and beyond
  5. Just wondering? Any one out there still looking or hoping for that one thing? I am not sure what it would be for me. My collection has come and gone and come and gone again, but now it is here to stay. So I would actually say something simple like a Terror Drome or a Defiant.
  6. I love it man! Those Classified figures are growing on me. I ordered a Cobra Commander and it will be my first on. I'm a sucker for ol' CC.
  7. Yeah thanks to COVID I order almost everything online. I have pre orders and the BBTS Pile of loot. Its kind of keeping me sane though having a steady stream of toys and games coming to the porch.
  8. Shame it turned out to just be modern figs on retro cards.
  9. I really hate when franchises do reboots... so I sort of just stopped following GI Joe comics around the time they archived the Devil's Due stories. But now here around 20 years later, I am digging all my old books out and giving them another read. I am curious, what do you guys think of the Devil's Due comics now 20 years later? I remember feeling at the time that I was super glad to have them, but they could have been better. Some of the story lines I am enjoying quite a bit more now as they have aged... Your guys thoughts?
  10. Well I think some of those are neat ideas. I think in reality the Wal Mart line will probably be just like the G1 Transformers line and the Star Wars Vintage line. Going by that I would expect figures that were either identical or almost identical to the original toys in packaging that looks the same. Probably 83-85 toys, if I had to guess it would be the original 1983 Swivel arm line. I do hope they do something about thumbs. That would be my only request. I don't think o rings or o ring instructions are an issue. We all have the internet and information on how to change those is readily available. Most of the people buying these figures are going to be us older collectors. As for any of the other more creative ideas, I think they are all GREAT!!! I don't think we will see anything like that again. At least not in O rings. But I am happy with collector geared reissues. Bring em on, I will order 2 cases day 1.
  11. Yeah I read about that over on Hisstank.com. Good news indeed. I will buy at least 1 of every thing they put out if it is anything like the G1 Rereleases. I just dont get it. Sure vintage O ring Joes have their issues, but man. When you like go to Yojoe.com and just click the pop up and look at every Beach Head figure ever made its just awful. Every modern figure is stretched and lanky and disproportional and poses weird. I can't do it. To each their own though... So long as the put out even just a LITTLE vintage Joe here and there, I will be a happy camper.
  12. Holy Crap Devil Bat what a great collection! Really makes me long for all the pieces I haven't repurchased yet!! MUST GET THEM!
  13. Come join The Pit on Discord to talk, and trade with other adult GI Joe collectors. https://discord.gg/tQ7PSz6
  14. That's hilarious. I added a few things Joe in 2019. Pretty much completed my USS Flagg. Using just a couple of repro parts. Got a Cobra Hydrofoil, A Rattler, The Bivouac, RAM Cycle, Zartan's Chameleon, and a R.O.C.C. Also my son gave me back the Hiss IV I gave him from my collection when he was tiny. And I still had all the missiles!!! Not a bad start at rebuilding my Joe Collection. - Phanstar
  15. I should post some new pics soon. See how much I've added to my collection in just about a year.
  16. He is a great figure! I never actually had him as a kid, but he was one that always stood out when I visited friends houses and left me full of envy. Glad you enjoy the pics Devilbat. I try to post one every week or two. I feel like I've gotten a lot better. My later pictures are my faves.
  17. Anybody else like making Dio's? What scale accessories do you find works the best with GI Joes?
  18. I decided to start blogging pictures of my collections on Instagram. Mostly GI Joe. Please follow me if you want to see my stuff! @phanstar330 on instagram!
