Dear fans!

We're proud to announce that we're going partly online THIS Sunday!
On the 4th of December we will launch gijoe.nl for the first time as an archive!
We had the forum running for over 2 years and it is about time we got back to work on the archive. Unforunately the site will release only in Dutch first. We will be adding an option later on in full english, French and German. The archives are far from complete, allthough they are fuller then we could ever imagine.
At the moment we've more aimed on Dutch and Belgian, allthough we have some European items online. We've still have loads of work to do, but our members got impatient and we, the webmaster, lost interest in the site. So we worked very hard the last weeks to get this part online. Hope you enjoy it! We will be updating a lot in the time to come! I'll make sure we get the updates running in both Dutch and English to keep you guys all up to date!
I would also thank all the people who helped us with the information they have given us. May thay be in material or just in words.
Without you the site would have never came up.

Great to hear that!
I'm discussing right now if we've got to change all names of the albums into english as well (exept for the text which is to much work at the moment). If not there will be some difficulties for non Dutch speaking people to surf on the site. Ah well you better start learning Dutch then, I've seen Jeff Bohn and some others at our forums using an odd translating program from the net. Try using that one if neccessary :)
I will try to get what is coming soon in english as well, because we have lots of things we still didn't implemented in the website.

spanish materials or spanish language?
We're considering to stick to english only as we're not extremely good in French and German...and I only know how to order beer in Spain :P

Great site. I'm amused how the Dutch filecards changed the birthplaces, like a lot of British ones did. Later releases seem to reprint the US character info. How boring.

Darklon's filecard call him a distant relative of Cobra, which doesn't make sense.

All the Hasbro catalouges showing pictures with multiple Cobra trooper types, anyone who says that toy companies didn't encourage army building back in the day can eat their words. (It's well known that Kenner's Star Wars packaging used multiple stormtroopers, jawas, etc.)
