View Full Version : Which line is your 2nd choice?

Which GI Joe line or scale is your second favorite? Since this is mainly a 3" site, that is probably the favorite of most of us, but I included it anyway since I know there are other collectors here regularly. Not asking what you thought was the most popular or had the most potential, but what you like. The options:

12" Joes (includes Bulletman, Atomic Man, the ARAH figs & the regular figures)
Super Joe; 8" - 8"
3" Joes - all lines
Sgt Savage; 4"
GI Joe Extreme; 6"
Micros (micro-machine scaled)
Sigma 6; 8"
S6 mini; 2" - not released yet, but maybe you see a lot of potential

I've always loved the Micros (which is odd for me considering I'm such an articulation nazi :) ) but ever since I looked at the catalog poster with all of them on the rocks as a kid I've been in love with them. I have 9 so far.....now if I could only find an auction with the rest for cheap :)

I love the vintage 12" Joes. My collection is not huge, but it is growing slowly. I am 33 and my first "Joe" ever was Bulletman. Who can't like Bulletman? He rocks!

I appreciate the classics, even when the 3 3/4 line was cancelled, I started going after the vintage figures.

Sgt, Savage for me. While i loved Micro Machines in the early 90's, they were long passed their prime by the time the Jv.C ones were released.

12 inchers.

You forget the option: "i dont have one" which is my choice....

I said 12 inches but I am not into vintage just the 90's and up especially the early 2000's. But I haven't seen the S6 mini's yet either.

Now that the S6 2" figs are out, anybody like them enough for a #2 spot?

I'm with argento outback.. I actually dont collect and wont collect anything else other than the 3 3/4 stuff

Would have to be the 12 inch line for me after the 3 3/4 line. Although most of the figures I collect here have to have an animal to be worth it. Deep sea diver with octopus, alligator handler, arctic adventurer with abominable snowman. I also have some ARAH 12 inch figures: Hooded CC, Destro, MAjor Bludd, SS, black SE, Airborne, Zartan, Dr Mindbender, Agent faces, Red Ninja. But space is a real issue with these figures so most of them are all boxed up and stored away.

I don't have one either. Just not enough room and I really don't like anything else.

07-30-2006, 09:38 PM
Well, out of those listed Sigma 6 2.5in is my second choice - since vehicles are my first love in the 3 3/4 line are my first love how could I pass them up?

That said, overall I'd bet I spend more on faux joe lines (PTE, corps, chap mei) then I ever will on the sigmas ...

3 3/4 figures are what I like.I do have 12 inch figures they just take alot of room though

Well since we are still getting our 3 3/4 I can say I am really liking sigma six But I think if the 3 3/4 are lost I don't know if I would still like sigma six. I think it helps that in my opinion sigma six is a good mix of 3 3/4 and the 12' joes.

3.75" is the only scale I bother with. I picked up the Night Ops VAMP on a whim because it looks cool, but its not compatible, so I'm thinking of returning it.

I like the 12" figs but only the ones that are related to ARAH characters, the regular Marine/Fireman/etc. type ones do absolutely nothing for me. That being said, I've only got a couple VvV 12" figures and I don't really see myself rushing out to get any more.

I'm in that boat too. I only played with the 3 3/4" stuff as a kid so thats all I desire as an adult.:D

Super Joe!

actually, i wish there were an, all of the above choice.

but i remember having the leftovers of my brother's Super Joe figures and 12" figures. That's why i tried to collect all of the Hall of Fame gi joes, i'm still looking for that Cobra Commander, Stalker, and a couple of the basic figures.

I also liked Super Joe because it really fit in scale with the MEGO superhero figures that i had a couple of as well and MEGO was one of the coolest toylines ever imo.

I don't have any sigma 6 or extreme gi joe stuff, but i wouldn't mind having any of it to tell you the truth. whatever keeps the gi joe name alive is cool by me.

I have a few S6 (I really like the SkyBATS) & am contemplating the new 2.5" but the lack of poseability is discouraging me. Although I heard that the 2nd wave is really good compared to the 1st.
