  • An unbroken Adventurer is a great find. I have seen photos online where collectors figures had broken down in pieces, apparently because of the coloring used to
    mold the bodies. And a minty uniform for him? Apparentely he was well taken care of. If the AT shoulder-holsters still have the pegs intact, that's a definite score.
    Not to mention the other items! Sounds like you got a great score!! Congrats.

    • Thanks Daryl! I also found a pair of camo pants in the bunch. They have black round snaps. Sound like anything you might need? Also there's an almost definite Fighting Yank M-1 carbine.

        Yesterday I won another auction. This time the seller had a low Buy it Now price, so I snapped it up. This will be my second Muscle Body Joe once I find another lower arm for him. Also will be interesting to see if the talking mechanism works. It may be a good one to learn on. Also have some nice uniforms here, including a complete Sea Adventurer uniform with nice blue shirt, and a second shirt to boot. Lots of other goodies here too. I'll keep him as a Land Adventurer, because of the flocking, but also because the camo shorts are here, plus part of the LA uniform. Wish I knew what happened to the talking Commander. Only the torso, mechanism and one thigh remain. Maybe sharks?

        • Wow Myles! You either have great luck, or do a lot of searching for good deals. I see a Jungle Survival shirt, what looks like an Atomic Man shirt, and two backpacks and helmets from the Laser Rescue!
          Not to mention a plastic AT footlocker.
          Great score!

          • It's mostly luck. I found this after doing a search for Gi Joe Adventure Team and looking at most recent listings. This was for a low price which is way below what others offer. I just happened to see it before most.

            • Well played!
              Those "laser rescue" mining helmets are pretty cool.
              I had one as a kid. I may still have it kicking around the depths of my Joe Room somewhere.
              When I was a kid, I recall finding some glow-in-the dark decal material that I cut into a circle and stuffed into the lens on the light. It glowed in the dark and I thought it was the coolest.
              Ah, simpler times...

              • Mail call today brought the box above. The head is from the muscle body Joe, and the left lower arm is not included. So I need to find an arm for this Joe, and then I can work on restoring him. He does have his LA pants, and there were 3 pairs of short black vintage boots. So the uniform only needs a shirt. I may have one in my uniform bin. The tall boots are 40th. The torso is from a Commander, but has the lower leg peg busted. So it's no good. The spring is out of the reel on the talking mechanism, but the string is still intact and attached. I'll watch some videos and do some fiddling to see if I can recoil the spring. Maybe it's a good talk box!? Many of the uniforms are play-worn, and I have better versions of all or most, so those will go up for auction soon on Ebay. The other items from Laser Rescue, the shark and the barbed wire also will likely go on Ebay. So will the AT locker. It's missing its handles and the tray. But it's in nice shape otherwise. I may swap parts with a beat up one and auction the beat up shell. We'll see. Not a bad price for the whole. I bought it mostly for the muscle body land adventurer. I plan to make him my first muscle body repair. I have some Cots kits for that. I hope to get to work shortly. Details will be in the latest projects thread. Eventually if not sooner!

                • Nice looking lot there! I've had pretty good luck re-stringing those muscle bodies with elastic. I can dig up the guide for that if you'd like.
