View Full Version : Would you allow a movie cast member to autograph one of your 80s MOC Joes?

Would you want Channing Tatum to autograph your MOC v1 Duke? How about Ray Park signing your MOC v2 Snake Eyes?

You think it would be a neat little addition, or would you not even consider it?

I'm all for creators signing my comics. My GI JOe #1 signed by Herb Trimpe is one of my prized posessions. But with this one, I'd have to vote no. Just curious what you all think.

If I had a MOC 80's Joe, sure. As it stands, I'd rather buy them lunch (especially Cover Girl-I could add her signature to my Restraining Order collection).

If I had any...since I open the few I get. I still say no. Is awesome that GIJOE has a movie in the works but honestly the movie and the Joes from the 80s to me are 2 different things.

Start a poll.

No, I actually think that would kill the value. I would rather have them autograph the 25th figures or the movie ones when they come out.

Start a poll.

I did (or I thought I did). Is it showing up for you?
BTW, I don't have any 80s MOC either.

I could see doing that with a MOC movie figure, but an 80ís MOC Joe? I wouldnít. Thatís if I had any.

Heck no. A movie figure maybe - I'm not all that into autographs anyway, but at least that'd be appropriate.

That's what 25th figures are for. Why would you take something that's already worth 300-400 dollars and add a 10 dollar signature to it, thus lessening it's original value? That's why you take a $7 25th toy and add a $10 signature to make a $20 collectable out of it.

YOu know when your radio station gives away artist signed guitars? you know that those are the cheapest guitars made, cause you'd never add a signature to a nice guitar without a really good reason.

I would have to vote no, ive heard some very very bad things about this upcoming movie... snake eyes is french... the pit is in egypt... EGYPT!

sadly this was our chance to get even with the transformers for making our animated movie look like well... cobra-la. I thought they couldnt make a worse movie about an 80's cartoon than transformers but it looks like the joes will prove me wrong sadly. I still remain faithful and my aim is true but I fear the worst for the this movie honestly.

Um, no. I would not ruin a perfectly good MOC vintage figure with the signature of some poor dope playing a crap movie version of the character.

No way!

They can autograph the new stuff.

Now if larry hamma or robert morris wanted to do some autographing I would see that a little differently.

05-13-2008, 01:09 PM
To me, the movie and the 25th figures are coming hand in hand. I would let one sign my MOC 25th but not my vintage 80's MOC's.

Mine too!!

the only people i would let sign any of my vintage cards would be larry hama or the original card artists.

05-19-2008, 11:48 AM
Why not let Marlon Wayans autograph your Ripcord? The resemblence is uncanny.....

05-20-2008, 02:29 PM

Now if they could only get Jared Leto to play roadblock...

05-21-2008, 01:49 PM
No way Jose!

05-21-2008, 02:40 PM
Sure I'd get signatures...from Michael Bell, Bill Ratner, Mary McDonald-Lewis, Neil Ross, Arthur Burghardt, B.J. Ward, Morgan Lofting, Zack Hoffman, Kene Holliday, etc. Or any of the 1982 series signed by Larry Hama would be a nice.

But it's far too late for new actors to "embody" long-established characters for me. I'm still annoyed over the duding-up of Beachhead in the Spy Troops movie.

Never going to get my MOC Joes near the actors. Rather let a small child with a crayon color in the white fields on the card.
