  • Whats the best place to track and purchase Gi Joes for your collection?

    Looking for opinions, websites, good dealers etc on how to build your collection. Ive recently started working on my collection from 1982-1988 and am looking for any resources available.

    Of course #1 would probably be ebay. Check out toy shows, swap meets in your area. Also, check out thrift stores, even though they are hit and miss, I have found a few 3 34"joe vehicles here. Look at garage sales, flea markets, and yard sales. Also check out Cotswold's website.

      Cotswol's web address is: https://www.gijoeelite.com/

      They are more 12 inch vintage feel than 3 3/4 stuff.

      Ebay has been my best source. I used to buy figures in lots and then resell the lots with the figures I didn't want. Of course, I have found them in the wilds via yard sales.

      I found the web stores to be more expensive over true private sales. Also note that I like my Joes loose and package free. I sure there a joke in there. Good luck and welcome to the board. You may want to register with Yo Joe or the Hiss Tank for more 3.75 action.

        or

        They might be good resources for mini-Joe fans.
