so what was the run of years for japanese joes??????/
and are they aelling any there now?????
a friend of mine went over there last month, and poked around a little for me-
found nothing, and the repeated response from shops was-
"you will be very unlikely to find any US war toys here"

when you think about it , joes in japan do seem a little odd-
but the prices on carded figs isnt that high, there were obviously lots of things made there-

so when??? and are they still doing it???

1986, and no, probobally never again.

kids in japan like cute pokemon type junk, theres no room for joes or other cool items except for medicom figures and anything made by Xebec.

I just moved back from there about a year and half ago. It took awhile but I found some Japanese Joes in some out of the place little nook type store in a corner. They are not popular in Japan and you will be very lucky to find them.
I found Duke, Zartan, Gung-ho, Cobra Soldier, and Major Bludd MOC for only 5.00 yen (about $3.50) a pop.
