    • Thanks! This is from a son of a collector. He's selling his Dad's stuff here: https://www.facebook.com/photo/?fbid...24429850945637

        I bought this Joe from Facebook marketplace a few days ago. He's a gummy head Joe, with really perfect blonde paint. I think he'll be one of the cadets I'll be putting together. The Marine uniform is mostly in bad shape. Pants are dirty, the jacket is missing two snaps and the loop for the neck closure. And the hat is mostly hardened. The shoes are good though. I can always use a pair of vintage Joe shoes. They fit a lot better than the 40th ones. He also came with his tag which is nice. The gun on the left is almost certainly from the Chewbacca figures Hasbro produced.

        • Now I'm looking forward to the Kentuckiana show at the end of this month. I'm hoping to complete some sets with pieces and uniforms I find there. Hope to see all of you there!

            That's definitely a Kenner Chewbacca bowcaster gun, missing the cross-bar par.

            • If only it had the cross bar, that would make a cool addition to the weapons room!

                This is my loot from Kentuckiana last weekend. I couldn't find much on my wants list, so I got almost all modern stuff, except for the MOA uniform from Darryl DePriest. I can never have too many of these. The boxes are from Pawtucket Platoon, and are of excellent quality like the club boxes were. The wetsuits were from Tearle Ashby and are made from the original molds!

                  Tonight I decided I need some new project figures to start on. I have other older ones I'm still not done with, but I wanted some AT guys to fill out my uniforms. So here is what I got off Ebay tonight.

                    These came at mail call yesterday and on Thursday. I got the lot without the Joe on Ebay, and the other one was a Facebook Marketplace purchase. There are several nice pieces in each lot, and some knockoff stuff too. I imagine these were childhood sets which were sold. The Joe is a Land Adventurer with some issues standing. His feet are also reversed. So that will need a little work. I may end up restringing and reflocking him. The older style Air Adventurer jumpsuit is nice but a bit dirty. The elastic is there, but not stretchy anymore. There's a decent Sea Adventurer uniform from the Emergency Rescue set. This set also included a nice Gi Joe M-1, but it has silver paint splashed near the muzzle where it shouldn't be. Still a nice rifle though. There's also a fully intact Machine gun here. No breaks! There are also 2 pairs of short AT boots in this lot. There also are several pieces of Jungle Survival here. I already have that set, so this will supplement some of the pieces I have in worse condition, or other sets. There's also a simulated leather bag I can't place, a toy ring with a weightlifter figure on the "stone" and a toy Redskins helmet.


                    The other set with the nice AT footlocker has a really nice Mike Power Race for Recovery jumpsuit. It has been starched and ironed though, so I hope it's okay when put on a Mike Power figure. There is also a nice Secret Agent trench coat which I will use. My others are more wrinkled. The Astronaut suit is in good condition with no rips, and is a 3 zipper version. It's also soft and pliable. All of the boots in this lot are KO. Not the best lots I've ever won, but they have some virtues. There are also some broken weights for the Deep Sea Diver's boots, and a partial Eight Ropes of Danger comic (missing the cover) I'll enjoy using some of these parts to outfit my other Joes being restored.

                    • It's always nice when you find odds and ends that you can use to complete other sets!
                      Congrats!

                        Well tonight I finally got one of my holy grails. The Black Adventure Team Commander. He should arrive by September 20. The Team will be ready for inspection, and to show him around headquarters. His airfare wasn't bad either!

                            • Belated congrats on the AA Talking Commander! It's a tough one to find and looks great on the shelf for sure! Out of the coffin boxes, the AA Talking Commander both HH and KFG are the two original boxes I'm missing.
