I'm Tibi (32 yrs old), from Hungary, Europe.
Just started/decided to collect Joes seriously after hesitating many years. I am focusing on vintage Joes only.
Aside from buying vintage Joes, I also about to fix up my old Joes you know new o-rings, collecting missing weapons, etc to have them in a complete, good state.
Just joined the forum a few weeks ago. Cheers!

Glad to have you on board. How long you been a collector?
I have been collecting for a long time. The first ones were Christmas presents. Saving up paper route and snow shoveling money to buy figures....good times. I am starting to display and pull out my collection to sort out the madness. I posted some pics on my profile page-I don't know if everyone can see them or not. It helps living in Cincinnati and flinging ex employees who have gems hidden from there glory days. It also helps belonging to a great site such as this one. I use to be a stickler on stoping my collection at 1986. V1 bats are a weakness and I have over 120 in my collection and working on a diorama as we type. I can't wait for the tru arctic bats to come out.I have gained a respect for the newer figures and opened my collection to them. I love customs too and have a lot of projects in works. I have always liked bad guys over good. Everyone always had the same figures and vehicles growing up. I was the only kid who wanted to be the bad guy. Mission accomplished.
Just wanted to say hello. I've been a collector since '82, dropped off after '94 and with the 25th have been back collecting. I finally join this site last year and have started (slowly) to add my collection.
I do have a quick question. Tonight I recently upgraded my account from the basic to Option 1. Does this upgrade usually happen immediately after payment etc or does it take a few days? Thanks!
I guess I should have originally put this post here instead of making a new thread, but my name is Richard and I just signed up a few days ago and I decided to join the Forum as well! I look forward to talking G.I. Joe will all of you!
My name's Christophe. I actually joined the community quite a while back but never actually logged on. Recently I've been getting back into my Joe collecting after finding some of my old 60's era Joes.
