  • Won an AT Abominable Snowman on Ebay today. Here he is. There's no snow here yet, so he may find it hard travelling on foot from Ohio. Once here there should be plenty of snow.

    • Great score Myles! It's my understanding these are hard to find. I'm thinking those were only available in one Sears set.

      • I think you're right. I've been looking one for a while with no success. Glad I found this one! In other news, my Geyperman hands arrived today from Hobbycrash! I was really surprised since they came from Spain. Maybe shipping times are improving?

        • Nice. I have one of these that I have had for as long as I can remember. Too bad he is so small. I want to complete the whole set one of these days, besides 3 other sets I have been working on since the days of the AOL Trenches.

          • Today I splurged a little. I found a couple of things I could not pass up on Tak7's ebay page. One was an unbroken stretcher! (I've never seen a vintage one without breaks!) and also a rifle for a Soldier Ape from POTA. I also went to 3rdSonBooks and purchased a lot of the reproduction comics he makes https://www.gijoeat3rdsonbooks.com/b...ro-mini-comics I also got a set of 4 repro AT decals for good measure. And I also bought one of the Mego Soldier Apes (the modern kind) from a different Ebay vendor. So it was a splurge of a small sort. Tomorrow I need to renew our AAA membership and maybe some other critical items.

            I also spent some time looking at Pawtuckett Platoon's facebook page. I drooled over a lot of his creations. Then tonight, I watched Kenny McGregor's cool FB auction and picked up an AT pistol and an almost complete West Point Cadet uniform. I'm stoked!!

            • I want to get back into vintage 12" Joe, BUT, I have been getting the new 6" GIJoe Classified figures. At first I didn't like them and thought they were too much at $19.99 apiece. I now have 19 of them. They are nice figures and Hasbro have actually been listening to collectors and improving the figures. The latest figures announced(B.A.T., Spirit, and Tiger Force Outback)look great. Best looking figures so far.

              • Last night I won an auction for another AT lot on Ebay. Here is a photo from Ebay of the contents. The uniforms look very nice and almost new (some of them), and there is a likely intact Adventurer as part of the haul. This will be only my second Adventurer. There also are a few nice pieces of paperwork, and of course three, and maybe 5 complete vehicles. Including a nearly complete AT Helicopter (I have 3 already) and a nice looking but dirty ATV. After cleanup both should look really good. Click image for larger version

                • Nice haul Myles! I'm guessing it cost you a pretty penny.

                  • The shipping was a lot, but it will be a big box I'm sure. The rest of the price was less than you'd pay for just the Adventurer. If he's intact.
