I've just returned from the States with quite a few figures and vehicles from KB Toys and TRU however upon my return to the UK I can't seem to find any here. Have Hasbro stopped supplying them in the UK/Europe?

Please can someone point me in the direction of some UK suppliers that I can contact?

Many thanks in advance.

I dont think theres any left, you can find the odd toy in poundstretchers/Instore and places similar to that but thats it really.

Thanks for that, I thought that may be the case.

Are there any UK online dealers that you can recommend?

There seem to be quite a few US dealers, but I'm not sure about customs charges. It could make any purchases I make very expensive.

WarAngel

None that I know of.

I always order under 100 bucks so I never have any troubles with customs or I deal with friends so its down as a gift.

I've found buying new from the uk ebay is actually dearer that buying from the states even when you factor in shipping.

Ie I can pick up a VvV pack for around $5-7 when over here I've seen them on ebay for 9.99

StephenMUK

Well, most of the stuff on UK Ebay seems to be very expensive.

Thanks for the advice, I think that I'll make up an order of around $50 to start with and see how I get on. Do you have any pointers on who I should try?

Thanks again, sorry to be a pain.

Don't worry about it, I'm happy to help

You can't go far wrong with http://www.gijoehq.com or http://www.gijoeheaven.com if you're looking for vintage and modern, modern only try http://www.smalljoes.com or http://www.digital-toys.com all great sites, I only wish Smalljoes still took paypal as now I can't shop with them.

it doesnt cost much to ship to the UK from the states, that doesnt stop most dealers from charging high shipping though. I just sent a figure to europe for like 90 cents, and it would have cost about 60 cents if it was in the states. so shipping shouldnt be a big deal.

I've just returned from Chicago myself and purchased all the 6 figure packs and the Moray Hydrofoil in the many TRU stores. I was disappointed that I couldn't find any comic packs though.

However I normally use smalljoes.com to purchase the modern figures. The shipping is quit expensive but still cheaper than buying the packs from eBay UK.

There's still alot of BTR packs in local stores here in the UK but I don't see them as true Joe.

:)..I'm from the UK.. I've been buying off ebay.com and GI JOE HQ.. both of which i recommend. I have purchased a few items from Ebay uk but like already mentioned in previous posts the sellers seem to charge an arm n leg for what they have.

I would definately recommend Joe HQ.. I've bought loads of stuff from there in the last few months and it stays quite well stocked too!

Anyhow.. hopefully see you about or if you want to email me. BTW.. Which part of England you live in Stephen?
I'm from Manchester.

:)..Hi Joe Fans.. So i got thinking..
Seeing as though this is a UK Collectors thread.. I was thinking of getting some of us together and organising a joe night.. where.. we could all sign on MSN Messenger at same time or Yahoo messenger or this forum?

Your Joe night sounds like a pretty good idea though, we'll have to sort something out.

Urban Saboteur
11-26-2005, 03:43 PM
:)I'm on both Messenger services now!

West Sussex.. thats a way off!
I'm in Manchester.. but we could still organize something..
I'm online most nights at around 6 onwards on msn and yahoo messenger.

Urban Saboteur
11-26-2005, 03:52 PM
:)..Anyways.. I was thinking first if we could establish what everyones setup would be...
So like.. it takes about 10 mins max to setup a hotmail account. And to get messenger installed.. even if you had an earlier version it would be cool.

Then of course its a matter of getting people together at the right time.. i don't mind being the organizer. I was thinking we could have subjects to talk about.. like an agenda to discuss. On Messenger you can have people join the conversation.. so it literally would be a few of us at the same time talking.. It seems theres alot of support for Joes in the states but scarce support in the uk.. but that doesnt mean the uk shouldnt have or hold representatives..

I've been communicating with forum member Atlantic through PM .. can you get back to me on details of what system or setup you prefer to use?

I'm on both so i'm not particularly fussed. I've recently helped sign up a family member too.. he collects joes.. member name Big Boa.. if we can get a couple of us together i'm thinking joe night could bring back a few memories!!

Hi guys, I'm Dave, a Joe collector from Bonnie Scotland! Based in Edinburgh, I find my best bet for Joes is ebay. Although TRU, Instores/Poundstretchers have some and sometimes Toyworld. At the moment it's mostly all BTR stuff, Sand Razors and HISS's! Asda USED to have millions...

The lack of stuff is fairly depressing... Fingers crossed Christmas brings some new Joes to the store... It happened last year...

Any other tips for finding figs and vehicles?

Cheers,

Unfortunately I won't be able to make it due to Christmas shopping commitments with the wife.

However I am curious to know if there are any UK collectors who own the USS Flagg. When Action Force was widely available in the late 80s I distinctly remember the USS Flagg being displayed in the big London toystore Hamleys.

I don't believe the toy itself was commercially available here in the UK but did some lucky Hamley's employee walk off with it after AF stopped being available?

andymort
11-29-2005, 06:33 AM
I remember seeing a Flagg at the Woolworths in Bath (when there WAS a Woolies here!) which was promoting a competition to win one. Unfortunately the most I got out of it was an entry form which is still probably in a drawer somewhere, which I kept as proof to my friends that it existed!

I just got back from living in NYC for a year, so the change from Joes everywhere to Joes nowhere is pretty depressing; I must have got hundreds of figures while I was there (DTC wave 1, Storm Shadow Unmasked...). I did find the Piranha Attack Boat w/Shipwreck and Patriot Grizzly (both US packaging) in my local newsagent, though -- they still have a few of each for 4.99 and 9.99 respectively.

I don't think I'll be able to make the chat on Thursday but I still wanted to stand up and say "My name's Andrew, and I'm a British G.I.Joe fan!"

Thursday nights kinda hard for me, unless it continues past 10. I'm normally on msn but I've been quite busy the last few days.

:D..Well.. in keeping with our regular scheduled program there are two members that stay on into the earlier hours. The other night i was on until 3am. Admittedly my attentions were diverted to ebay, Just making sure i was being honest.

:)Yes I start on msn at around 6pm.. But i am usually on messenger and the forums through until 1AM. Thats an average for me. BTW... I'd not expect anyone else to do this.. Just come on whenever you can and say hi!

I've been busy of late with practice paint sessions on two of my custom Joe characters. They are international heroes that both are from the United Kingdom. Codename:HORIZON is a Helicopter Pilot and
Codename: Black-Out is an Night Ops Airborn Assault Trooper. I'm practicing paint on these two before moving on to my joes for my dio.

Yojoe everyone!

Hi guys. Thanks for the welcome one and all. Can't wait to get settled in and talk Joe with y'all! I have to say I'm looking forward to Joe Night too!

I do own a USS Flagg. To my understanding all that is missing is the radio unit, but I'm not in a hurry for that. It's a beast of a playset I have to say. It's also very cool. Truely ahead of its time. I also recently got a hold of a Defiant Complex and that is stunning too. Sometimes I wonder if these vehicles were really designed for kids though...

I'm uncertain how many other Flagg's are in the UK, but if you have a small fortune to spend (as it would probably cost that to buy and ship it) :D I'd recomend it highly!

Alright Bigtatoo!?!? Howz ye dayin bud? Cheers for the welcome! It's a relief to know I'm not the only Joe, or Jock here in bonnie Scotland. In five years, yer the first fellow scot I've met! I stay near Livingston and attend Napier Uni. As The big chief has asked (Nem) do you have MSN? I'd love to talk Joe with ye!

Yer plan sounds ideal. It's about time the Joe's were marketed right... I predict a riot like... As for AF? Bloody right! It may well work. One thing is for sure... Something needs to be done... And if its Sigma Sucks... Then Has-blow... Big time! If I seem them in shops before ARAH figures I will cry... like that time I went into Beatties to find Corps and no Joe's... A truely sad day!

Action Force would be great though, no more Joe's just unique figures which are independant of the Joe's and look out for the EU.

Believe it or not I missed out on a lot of the Palitoy stuff because I'm young, which is a shame, because I'm very fond of it, I've been trying hard to get some AF figures and I'm doing no bad. My Palitoy AF Whale is one of my faves though!

Anyway I'll leave it there because am starvin!

Count me in too!

On the subject of buying Joes in the UK - vintage stuff I get 100% from ebay UK sellers. I've nearly completed the 84, 85 and 86 figures and most of my favourite vehicles.

New stuff, smalljoes.com or Ebay US sellers. You have to look around, but you can find bargains - for example, I just got the Cobra infantry night watch 6 pack for 16 including postage.

StephenMUK
12-06-2005, 02:44 PM
I have no idea about MSN, but if one of you kind souls points me the way I'll be there.

That's a great deal for the Cobra Nightwatch pack Cyclone!!!It's usually about 25 on Ebay over here.

I saw a few older vehicles at TRU on Purley Way, Croydon on Sunday, but no figures I'm sorry to report.

I wonder if it's worth emailing HasbroUK to find out if they'll make the DTC stuff available over here - If someone hasn't done so already.

Hey, guys; I'm very much hoping to join in on Thursday, but I'll show up later in the evening. I just started a (temp) job that gets out at 5:30, and then there's the hour-or-so bus home, dinner, etc...

The job, along with a stinking cold (I lost my voice when the job is mostly using the 'phone...) have kept me off the 'net for the last few days, but I'm very much looking forward to being able to chat to some Joe fans who've had a similar experience with the hobby.

:)Hello Collectors from UK.

I just got word from my Sister that my local TRU was selling some old stock about 2 years old.

So i got my moms to take me to TRU.. (As legally i cannot drive yet).. but hey.. I picked up four COBRA HISS 4's a Cobra Ringneck and a Joe Split Fire.. I was well pleased as TRU sold them cheap.

I have pic's on my [email protected](below) Still waiting on my Royal Guard and 2 AV's, also my MOC Figures to arrive. Should be some time this week.. YAY!

I'm not sure of the exact details, but they do charge a small fee. I'm looking at making a small purchase (a couple of the wave 3 DTC figures, are they out soon?) and see how I get on.

There are also lots of other things that are cheaper in the US too, so it may save some more money elsewhere so that you can buy even more Joes!

Sounds like you've had a result there Nem.That's pretty much the same stuff that they had at TRU down my way, but I really don't have space for more vehicles.

Arg. I have 4 HISS IVs already, and while I wouldn't turn another down, just to make an even bigger column of tanks (or two) I'd love the variety a Ringneck would provide. And the Split Fire looks like an interesting enough vehicle but the chance for a new character, Rampage, is the real draw. I just wouldn't use him alongside JvC Beach Head...!

I didn't even know these had been released in the UK. The most my local toy store ever got was the first wave of figures (you know, the one without any army builders), the Assault Quad, FANG III, Sand Razor and HISS IV. And then, to taunt me with thinking more was coming, the Conquest X-30. That was only about 8 quid, though, so I did get 3 :)

What I'm really looking for now is base/HQ stuff. I want to do some dio-stories and while I have the cast I'm lacking in sets. I've got the Battle Platform for the Joes, plus Checkpoint Alpha, Air Defense, Forward Observer and the Mortar set to give the Joes somewhere to be and just a Cobra Bunker for the bad guys! Wish I'd hung on to my cardboard Death Star...

A quick question please guys:

What's the difference between G.I. Joe The Movie and G.I. Joe The Movie Special Edition?

Hey Stephen, I think one has another episode after the movie, and one doesn't, I think I maybe saw that on Amazon ages ago, or a site like it, I'm sure it wasn't play... I think the episode was called "There's no place like Springfield" or something like it... I wonder if theres a Crimson Guard uniform hanging in Homer's closet?

Okay AF soldiers/Fans..
Topics for tomorrow nights discussion are..

1. If You were given responsibility for restructure of the next Joe N Cobra wave or a complete overhaul which 5 characters would you release first. Five picked for each team. You can include a Leader if you would like. So think of it as your own wave release..
2. What in your opinion has been the best year from hasbro for vehicle releases? Also might want to think of 3 important vehicles for that year just to sort of backup your decision?
3. International/UK filecard variants..and birthplace changes. (discussed more indepth on discussion) basically the filecards released in Uk were altered to show certain figures being born in places in UK.. wales, scotland, england etc.. when the other releases in US show alternate birthplaces.. I'd like to hear your thoughts on this tomorrow night.
4. If you were a GI JOE General or Leader as it were which vehicle would you choose for a base and why.. also which craft would you use for air support and which would you use for short range recon scouting missions.

Those are my 4 topics and there will no doubt be other suggestions (i'm hoping for things to discuss by the other soldiers too!

Lets make the 3rd Joe Night a good un Soldiers. "Up and at em! Full Force"

I was disappointed with the turnout. Especially after me mentioning that it would literally be the last one of the year. I can expect this though as its very close to Xmas and lots of people have other things on their mind.

:D..Hello Guys..
I got to thinking about the Action Force Team members.. and how the team changed when JOE came on the scene in the late 80's.

I plan on collecting just selective stuff from the AF range. The reason I moved onto Action Force in 87 from Star Wars was primarily the Swivel Arm Battle Grip..so because of this I know for sure I wont be buying into the Ironblood figures and the very early straight arm and straight leg dudes.
For this reason I also wont be collecting the Straight Arm 82 figures from Joe either.

However I think when I finally get my joe verse running.. I will use my JOE team to defend american soil and the Action Force team to defend Europe.. excluding Russia.. which will be dealt with by the Oktober Guard :D..

Having given this some thought.. I was wondering what AF's original setup was..Who was the actual leader in the UK?
I know with the earlier figures.. from what I can tell.. they had Q-Force and SAS.. who was there overall commander?
Also I'd like help with Identifying the MOS.. for the other figures.. the information on Yojoe is sparse where the UK stuff is concerned.. or am I to assume that the Figure came with a vehicle and thats there only operating speciality?
For Instance.. Blades came with the SAS Helicopter.. so I am to assume he is a Helicopter Pilot.. but theres no Filecard links on yojoe.. theres countless others too.. such as Dolphin, Moondancer & Hunter..
Many thanks for any help

Made it, although I had one of my fastest ever showers after turning the alarm off thinking it was on snooze...

Felt oddly awake during the day, apart from my usual drifting around unconsciousness on the bus rides. There is something to be said for starting the day with a large Mocha from Cafe Nero (2 shots of espresso in those things).

I had a good time chatting last night; liked Boa's action shots a lot. I was thinking maybe we could all do some similar stuff, those of us with access to a digital camera or webcam, and have that as one of our agenda things one night? Like an exhibition. Not fancy dios, unless we really wanted to, just a quick thing for a bit of fun. We could open a photobucket account or something to be our gallery :)

I just got us a photobucket account set up. :p

The website link is here please save to your bookmarks
http://www.photobucket.com/
I will be emailing ya'll the username and password so we can all share our photo's whether it be dio's figures, vehicles or just plain goofing about.

The main menu from sign in I have created 4 sub folders. We could perhaps create more..but I was using the first additional ones as examples.

1) Dio's and stories.-Test shots for up and coming dio's your working on.. maybe you have created a short story with pictures and want to show them off?

2) Figures - This can be for customs figures.. or just a selection of men you have posed in front of the camera.. either way if you've just got a newly acquired figure and want to show him off upload him in this section.

3) Vehicles - One of my fav's I will like this section. Maybe you are stockpiling on HISS vehicles?.. Just got a holy grail you want to share with us?.. Customs vehicles are also welcome here.

4) UK Members - Done something outrageous?.. got a nose piercing or really bad fight with the lawnmower and lost?..or just a few intro pics to show us UK members what you look like.. come on don't be scared now!

Please be sure to upload photo's to there correct folders.. if you want to create your own subname folder for your own collection then please do so.

Thanks to Stormer for creating this idea.. LMK what ya'll think.. I'll be emailing you password details very soon. :-)

I've put the most recent picture I have of myself in the photobucket account, so now you can all see what I looked like in late 2003...

I've been taking pics of some figures I'm going to be putting on eBay this week; it took me a whole night to set them up in decent enough light and take the pics, then another night selecting the best ones to use and then cropping/cleaning them, so I didn't have time to take pics of my actual collection yet. I'll be putting the eBay ones on photobucket tonight just so I've got something on there (after coming up with the idea!) and you can all criticise my photography skills, posing of figures, and estimate how much/little I'll get for them...!

It was fun to have the trans-Atlantic chat last night; good having a large number of people on at once again!

I need to find suitable pics, but Super Sonic Fighters Zap is meant to be Clark Gable, right? And is Hawk (pre-talking mold) meant to be Cary Grant? I always thought there was too much similarity to be coincidence...

:DDefinately.. Fun.. there was also a good deal of trading to be done..

The aim of the discussions is to provide a quality discussion or chat base for people to share experiences and ideas for projects and help each other out.. if that means trades then so be it.. I hope to see everyone taking part as much as possible.. if you cannot meet up on a Wednesday night the Thursday night chat is still open.
If there are any newbies from UK or US that would like to take part in the discussions/chats and aren't sure on sign up or anything just click my profile and send me an email or PM I'll do what I can to help.

Don't worry too much about the chats.. as I say me an a few others are always online so just join in when you get the time. I can't wait for the battlezone game to start either. This should be great. I do have alot of posts for such a small amount of time. I put it down to not being in full time employment and dedicating almost every waking hour to the cause that is GI Joe.

I will soon be adding some pictures to the photobucket account of my figures from my collection. As well as vehicles too.

I've recently received my :cool:.. looking Ice Sabre.. unfortunately some parts were damaged it appears during shipping.. which I wasn't to thrilled about.. I got Backblast Figure this morning through the post.. including filecard complete with all accessories.

Hey there Boa. Ive dealt with Gijoe HQ several times.

Boa its not intentional, Curt has been real busy lately.. I think he has a store opening up. I've checked the Account and it does indeed say that Firefly should have a filecard with him.
As bigtattoo said.. its probably an error.. send a PM to him his ID is bigfan.. on the forums.. and just mention it to him.. ask him to send the filecard along with my next order and I'll pass it to you.
You shouldn't post a message like that without first contacting the seller to see if they can resolve the problem. I think your title is rather harsh and unjust.

He's the guy that hooks up the guys out in the field with HQ. Once contact is made.. its then the job of Horizon getting to them in the chinook..

Again I must stress these are based on GIJOE type 3 3/4 figures.. but based as my UK International Action Force Unit.

not sure this is the right place, but the heading 'UK Collectors' led me here, and you guys seem nice so i'm sure you'll help me out.

Childhood G.I.Joe/AF fan, had loads of stuff which has mostly (and sadly) been sold a long time ago. Still have a couple of bits and moving soon, so i wanna find a collector near me to 'donate' to.
Free to a caring home, nothing much worth selling, but might help an avid collector.

You know of any collectors in S.E.London? or close?
close enough?

U.K. Joe collectors, a sight for sore eyes!

I've been a Action Force / G.I. Joe collector for many years. With the exception of my figures my collection was given away by my Mother, a familiar story no doubt. Anyway, I've recently rediscovered my passion for these guys and am now rebuilding for good and having great fun doing so.

Gentlemen, I was hoping I could seek your advice on the following;

1. The recommended collectors price guide which includes international valuations? I would like to value a MOC European Exclusive Mutt and Junkyard.
2. This may be a daft question but is there a "Collector's Standard" for cutting out File Cards i.e. inside the dashed line, outside the dashed line or around the actual file card?

Thanks

Buddusky (Newcastle upon Tyne)

P.S. Do you have any plans to start a U.K. swap shop from wanted lists?

Hello Buddusky,
welcome to the boards and thanks for stopping by the UK collectors section. I asked for this to be stickied a while back by the mods. I joined here in october or so last year and there wasn't really a place for new UK collectors to chat and arrange things. I guess it could be done from here.. contacting and swapping etc.
As for your questions I know theres a book released by a gentleman named ron conner. Treasures N Toys.
The book or link to the thread about the book can be found here.
http://forums.yojoe.com/showthread.php?t=9418&highlight=international+price+guide
I think that covers International Prices including European releases.

Occasionally the UK collectors get together on a thursday night on MSN Messenger and chat, thats usually where we arrange any swaps or anything. If your interested send me a PM and I'll get back to you.
Bye for now
Full Force!!

Welcome to the boards, and hopefully our wee club also.
I dont actually know the answer to the 2nd q.
I would assume its round the dashed line, certainly in terms of aesthetics.
What to do is post the q. on these boards and the experts will be able to answer that one.

I'll post it on the general Joe board. The question came to mind this morning when a lot of figures I bought turned up, each file card was cut differently. Personally I think I would go with around the actual file card...It's great being an 80's geek!

Ha Ha, Pavel is...er...a Crimson Guard...Pavel is a Crimson Guard...

I recently picked up a Chinese Carded Lifeline and Tiger Force Flint in a vintage toy shop in Glasgow, 1.99 each! The guy in the shop said he had come across a box when cleaning out his store room, looking on the card back I had visions of a 85' Snake Eyes and 83' Storm Shadow but Flint and Lifeline were the last ones the rest had all gone. It was a great feeling seeing those two figures hanging on a peg though!

Or does Pavel is a geordie have a better ring to it? :P

Please tell me more about this toy shop? Where about in Glasgow is it and what is it called? :-D

These figures appeared in Poundstretchers in the late 90s, I got Cobra Commander, Destro, Lifeline, Flint and Maj Bludd. I'd love to pick some more up though! :-D

These days some of the newer Joe stuff can be found in poundstretchers/instores, toyworld and Toys r us!

At one time my collection was quite vast but a lot of vehicles were given away by my Mam. My figure collection is quite comprehensive though, so I'm busy army building and replacing favourite vehicles. I prefer the 80's / early 90's ranges and very rarely bother with the new stuff.

Joe resource is quite sparse in the Toon, the last thing I picked up was Air Comandos Spirit, Skymate and Cloudburst form GWHAT Shop which is now The Gate, that must of been late 90's. I get most of my stuff from Empire Island, Ebay and Reil Toys.

I just got a phonecall from my Sister. Apparently bro in law has been to his parents.. and having intended to fetch the rest of his SW stuff down he also found an action force boat and cobra figure :confused:
Hmm my sister asked if I would be interested.. :eek: **** Yeah.. the cobra is a soldier figure.. a black mask across his mouth and red symbol on his chest.. Great!

It was a small, flat platform, with a radar tower and missle turret. It was all surrounded by a floatation collar, with a torpedo on the side.
You never know tho, it could just as easily be a Moray. Now that would be sweet.

Er well no. Maybe its how I put this across initially as your the second person to say that. The story is simply that steve (my bro in law) has been to his parents house to collect his SW stuff. Upon clearing the attic and his brother (lees) stuff he stumbled across two AF items a cobra soldier and a grey boat type vehicle. These belong to Lee, upon asking lee he said that he no longer wanted the items and that if steve was willing to sell them (like he was doing with his SW stuff) then lee would take whatever he could get for them.

It must of been how I worded it earlier. I didn't say though that lee said I could have it. I probably just worded it badly after being caught up in the initial excitement of it all :rolleyes:

Hi Everyone,
After much excitement I can confirm the blue soldier is a cobra as I first thought from my bro's description. He's in immaculate shape. I hope my photo's do him justice.
He's in significantly better condition than the ones I paid 9.99 for recently. So I offered them 12 as the symbol is flawless as is the silver patches type things on his arms. See What you think let me know if I have been too generous or if I have offered too low.

And now for the vehicle. I am uncertain about its name. I know its Q-Force as the symbols tell me that. I haven't take a picture of the underside. It says ACTION FORCE CPG PRODUCTS CORP 1981.
If you want me to take a pic of this I can do.
Theres also a missile.. I am not sure if this is to do with the boat or not?

Hi mate. i think 12s fine for the Trooper. I mean, he may have got a little more on ebay, but thats a more than fair amount. As to the boat- it is the Diving platform. Its missing its radar tower, rear missle post and torpedo attachment. Id give him 1, if that. Hope that helps.

Urban Saboteur
04-12-2006, 09:22 PM
Most people agreed man.. the 12 was a justified price for the soldier. So I am happy I got that right :)
As I said I was uncertain about the boat.. however.. I will be offering them 3 on the basis its only a shell and theres not much chance of me getting those missing parts. I'll keep a scope on ebay. ;)
I hope to have them both for a total of 15 which to me I think is a fine score.
I have been shown some links and pics of blue prints .. it definately looks like the Q-Force swordfish attack boat. It looks quite cool. I might if I can find the missing parts actually find a place in my joeverse for it. :D

After finally getting a Grand Slam figure a couple of weeks ago, I just got around to taking a group shot of all the longest-serving members of the GI Joe team (i.e. '82 characters). It's in my figures sub-folder in the photobucket account.

Scarlett ended up getting crowded out by Hawk, although I do wish I had the VvV single-carded Scarlett anyway then I'd show her more prominenly. Likewise Spy Troops/VvV "Double" Clutch instead of just the Mega Marine. I was going for a "where are they now" look instead of original style, hence the lack of comic 3-pack versions of anyone except Steeler and why hyperthyroid Grunt is hiding in the VAMP... I also didn't want to use any customs, although I did enhance Night Force Short-Fuze with an Accessory Pack helmet & visor and the mortar tube from the Mortar Defense set. I was thinking of doing group shots for each year's recruits, updated versions where applicable (i.e. if they exist and I have them!).

I also put up a pic of some of the main Dreadnoks posed with some rides; a Dreadnok Cycle I got off eBay a while back, a Ferret I got MISB the other weekend at a toy fair, and some 1:18 scale motorcycles I've been hunting for in toy/model shops recently. The figures sit on them a little awkwardly, but then I couldn't even get Monkeywrench to ride the Ferret without standing up and hunching over the handlebars, which is why they're all in a more relaxed, parked pose...

I think if Hawk would have been positioned at the front of the vamp next to Grand Slam.. well Scarlett may have finally got a modelling job :p

Also very well done with the Motorcycles.. that works well with the Noks.

Nice going, Nem! Anybody else see the auction for 3 non-mint Cobra Troopers that ended this afternoon for 33.00...? I think somebody bid silly-high not expecting the previous bidder to have put in their own silly-high buffer. The winner only had feedback 15 so they might not know what they're doing, otherwise perhaps it's a good time to sell Troopers as there's a crazy new collector in town with more money than sense...

Thanks for the compliments, guys! With Scarlett in the picture, to be honest I kinda messed up because I was repositioning myself so Grunt and Clutch's faces wouldn't be obscured by the VAMP rollcage or anything, and didn't realise how much of Scarlett was covered as a result. Hawk could have moved an inch or so (stage) left and it would have been okay, I think.

I've seen a few people post pics of their "Original 13" all done in the old-school style, using the comic pack figures (minor customs sometimes), but I'd not seen one of these "class reunion" type shots. I was looking at the following years and once a couple of eBay/store buys arrive I'll be good up until I'd need Keel-Haul to be in the shot.

I went outside yesterday, took advantage of the day off and the Bank Holiday afternoon sunshine and got a load of pics taken in readiness for some eBay auctions.

And now eBay's really slow and certain features won't load at all, like "preview my auction" and the spellcheck, so it looks like I'll be putting them up NEXT week now. In the meantime, check out my "For Sale or Trade" sub-folder, in my photobucket figures folder.

Feel free to make me an offer if you want to beat the auctions (http://s48.photobucket.com/albums/f250/UKAFCollectors/Figures/Stormer%20AndyMort/For%20Sale%20or%20Trade/)

I took the pictures around a pile of stones for building around flowerbeds or something. They made for some pretty good scenery, with cliffs & caves and suchlike - maybe one day, if/when I get a dio-story done, they can feature as the mountains of Trans-Carpathia. Just need to make a scale Silent Castle, then...

As I can't think of anything to add to the thread, heres some top tips:

Instead of waiting for your tree to grow, tie it to the top of a telegraph pole.

If glass breaks in your greenhouse, use frozen ice to patch the broken glass, don't worry about it melting as the ice is frozen, and you can use the broken glass as fake ice for your drinks and it will never melt therefore guaranting limitless re-use.

If you're worried about monkies in your kitchen, simply place some bananas on the wardrobe, thus stopping the monkies from invading your kitchen space.

To stop those thieving bees from stealing your pollen, simply place a bucket or similar object over the flower.

If your moving house and wish to take your goldfish bowl with you but dont want to waste time emptying it, simply place it in the freezer. thus preventing sploshing of the water, sadly your fish will die but not all is lost as you can dry the fish out in the sun and you have several handy bookmarks.

If you need to put a fire out but only have petrol/Gasoline chill it first so the fire will burn cold.


To save money on first class stamps, simply post your letter a few days earlier and use second class stamps.

Put shaving foam on a glass of marmite for a drink that looks similar to stout but tastes miles better.

Some usefull tips.. I have one too.

Try and stay on topic.. ;) I am not a mod.. but we need to stay on topic!!

I'll try and rescue this thread once more. I hope now that I have finished that lengthy book review that I might be able to work on my UK get together Idea.. like a mini convention or mini gi joe meet.
For this to work I think we need to decide on a suitable city to all meet up in. I will send each of you an email shortly regarding this.

As for the time. I was thinking in October just for the weekend?

Most of us are based oop North, so Id suggest Newcastle as first option, Manchuria 2nd and Edinburgh 3rd.
I think meeting on Sat- un sounds about right too, at least initially.
Also- leave the Cap'n alone. His tips are great.

Im having major problems with my client at the moment.
Ive changed to Firefox and Thunderbird, but there are still some programs run through OE which are causing me major grief.
I dont have enough savvy to remove OE totally without compromising my computer.
Hence- all my mail addys are useless.
Ive just created a new one and hopefully it should fix the problems.
Ill mail u my new addy when I know it works.

Hehe.. well theres always the big 10?
Assuming you'll still be collecting Joes when you reach 10,000

Although I am a stats freak I dont consider numbers important. I kind of wish there was a timer. Which counts how many hours, days and minutes you have spent online signed into the forums.

Thanks for the congratulations. I will need your email.. so I can copy you on the details for the UK Meet. So far.. I have October/Newcastle as the date/venue.
