    Smile Finally ... The Gliders after 23 years are mine ......

    At last ......
    Dont know if you guys even care about the gliders but I love them

    Here are my two loose ones

    Heres my MIB Argentina falcon Glider

    And heres my MIB argentina Viper Glider .

    Still trying to track down a MIB US Viper Glider but I have a US Falcon glider MIB lined up (At least I hope I still do !).

    I can honestly say I love the gliders and wanted them more than anything when I was little . These are true 'holy grail' items personally to me , the many years about thinking about owning them , and then to finaly get them ..... Its almost indescribable .

    We never got alot of the cooler things over here in New Zealand so im getting all the things I wanted when I was a kid but could never have . Now im 27 I can finally get a few bits a pieces .

    Thank you guys for getting me enthused about Gi Joe once again and a special thank you to 2 special board members for helping me out in my glider quest .
    And to the 25th anniversary line , though not yet released those proto pics pulled me in and now im hooked all over again

    YO JOE !!!!

    Very nice and congrats on getting them. I had one of the gliders as a kid but it didn't live very long.

    I had sooo much fun with those when I was a kid! My friend and I would both launch them out over the pool and send the whale to retrieve them! Great score and good luck on the US Viper!

    You Know whats really sad I remember Gemco clearencing them for $.39. I got 3 of the Joe ones (what was I thinking), and destroyed them in glider accidents within a month. Still have all 3 tan grunts in perfect condition much better then Viper pilots. (Man was I a dumb kid )

    Thanks guys !

    You guys are lucky getting to play with these when you were kids , though if I had got a hold of them back then I dont think they would have lasted very long as I was a rough little bugger back in the day
