    Joe Helmet Visors

    I want to get all my original straight arm Joes all completed, and I've been able to get the few different Guns & Backpacks that I needed. But the one thing I can't find is 4 of the clear visors that go on a few of them, and I was wondering if anybody make reproductions of them? I thought I remember someone doing this a few years back but I'm not sure I could be thinking about something else. So if any of you guys know someone who does this, or if you have any real ones to sell let me know...

    I didn't have any problems finding clear visors. Since the accessory pack version was the same clear plastic, there seemed to be quite a few of them out there. You waited a looooooooong time to restore your original straight arms. I did all mine back in the late 90s. I'm considering just making a display of them with my original figure case and Pocket patrol Pack, but they only fit 15 of the 16 between them. Maybe I'll figure out a special way to display MM-CC, or just get another PPP and throw an extra Officer and Trooper in there with him.

    Yeah I didn't do much with them in the past, and those Acc' packs are pretty expensive now.. I'm just now kind of getting back into my Joes. I spent most of the 2000's Army Building different Cobra figures, and just didn't do much with my original Joes. I have 2 MM CC's, I had 4 at one time but 1 went MIA sometime when I was a kid. And 1 got used as a chew toy for my Boxer back in 2003!

    I got really lucky three years ago and ran into a guy at a toy show who was selling a beat up raggedy Series 1 Accessory pack for $3. Ironically, as beat up as the set was, the visors were just fine and wala. You never know.

    Ha ha, I have dreams like this. Did you try to haggle him down to $2 too? Haggling is the only way I know how to bluff if I come across a great deal.
