All six of these vehicles are courtesy of our friends at the Yo Joe Outlet. Please visit them on eBay! The six 1987 Battle Force 2000 vehicles combine to form the Future Fortress, "the most indestructible stronghold in the world!” so be sure to scroll down on each vehicle page to check that out.
We are still looking for photos of these vehicle boxes, as well as scans of the blueprints. Please message me if you'd like to contribute to 3DJoes!
We are constantly fleshing out the archive with new box art photos! Check out the latest additions:
1987 BF 2000 Vector, Sky Sweeper and Dominator, 1987 Battle Gear and Vehicle Gear Accessory Packs, 1988 DEMON (on Ferret's page) and Tiger Fly (on Recondo's v2 page), 1991 Air Commandos Cloudburst, 1993 Starfighter (on Sci-Fi's v2 page) and Ghoststriker X-16 (on Ace's v2 page).
The Cobra Missile Command Headquarters has arrived!
The 1982 Cobra Missile Command Headquarters is the only G.I. Joe playset ever made out of cardboard. It is also the only playset or vehicle to feature product photography rather than illustration on the front of the box. The MCHQ was only sold at Sears and is quite rare. Due to the materials it is extremely fragile, and finding one in decent condition can be quite a task. This set is one of the "holy grails" of 1980s Joe collecting.
To wrap up 1982, I decided to take another pass in Photoshop on all of the file cards and box art photos. I have been steadily improving the photo editing since beginning the site less than two years ago, so the 1982 photos were due for a refresh. Be sure to check out all of the 1982 figure and vehicle pages to see the improved photos!
There were eight Motorized Action Packs released in 1987, featuring windup motors and an on/off switches. I had several of these as a kid and I remember really enjoying them. From the Earth Borer's spinning chrome tip, to the Helicopter's rotating blades, to the Pom-Pom's recoiling barrels, they added so much fun to play time. Check them all out today over on the 1987 Vehicle overview!
JoeLanta is next weekend, March 15th-16th, in Atlanta Georgia.
I'll have a table in the dealer overflow room and I'll come stocked with 3DJoes posters, carded ARAH figures and some modern exclusives. Come by, say hello, buy a poster and wish me happy birthday! (I'm turning 35 on Sunday the 16th)
