  • Collecting Goals 2020

    I was searching this evening for the 2019 version of this thread, and couldn't find one. Anyway, maybe my eyes were playing tricks and it's really there. So what are your collecting goals for this year? At new year's, I'll make another post to the thread to see where we all are with our goals.

    My goal for this year has been partly achieved. I finally got a B/W Club Action Pilot, and also the AT Fight for Survival set! I'm very excited about both of these, and am not really sure what else to shoot for. I'm hoping to get to another show this year, either Joelanta or maybe back to the Kentuckiana show this year.

    I still want the B/W Club Sailor, and I also want to pick up another Sea Adventurer (vintage). I also have about 10 heads in need of flocking. So I guess those are my goals for 2020. A stretch goal might be to acquire a Mobile Support Center in the box. That would be a nice score!

    My goals are pretty much the same as there were in years past, except with a few new additions. I need to finish my SOTW German, paint the head of the Joe that I restrung the arms, finish the Search for the Abominable Snowman, Mummy's Tomb, and Hunt for the White Tiger sets, work on my vintage 3 3/4" Joe and Star Wars figures and vehicles, do ALOT more drawing and start selling more art prints on my Etsy shop(I know this isn't really Joe related, but it is a goal), get my YouTube channel up and running, and just have a lot of fun with this and all my other great hobbies. And, keep posting to both my instagrams(my collectables one and my art one).

    I will be posting some want lists, so stay tuned.

      I’m hoping to get to Joelanta and the Kentuckiana show this year, as well as A Weekend of Heroes in October in CA.

        It's only a couple of months since my first post in this thread. I've already gotten the B/W Sailor, and I had one of my Sea Adventurers reflocked, so that he looks really nice and practically new. So now I have a total of 4 nice Sea Adventurers. My stretch goal still eludes me. I blew my collecting budget already. I'm trying to think of other Joe stuff I can sell to build up funds for a MSV purchase, except now I want a complete or nearly complete one with a good box. How is everyone else doing with their goals? Updates!

          So far, the only thing I have done is posting to both my Instagrams and doing a lot of drawing. As far as Joe related goals, only Joe thing I have done(it wasn't in my original post, but it should've been) was getting 2 of the 3 GIJoe comics I needed for the current IDW run. I also need to add one more goal. Redo my vintage 3 3/4" Joe display, because I have added a bunch of new figures and need to make room for them, because the shelf they are one also has my vintage 3 3/4" Star Wars figures on. I really need to take a vacation to knock out some of my goals.

            I've decided to add another goal for this year. I'm hoping to find a nice Talking Black Commander. Preferably with hard hands. I have the one from the Club, but I'd like to score a vintage one someday. Maybe this will be the year.

              I need to add another goal also. Again, not Joe related, but organize my comic collection(it's close to 6000). Luckily, it won't be as bad as when I did it like 5 years ago. It took me 2 weeks. Also, I need to finally read the entire Marvel G.I.Joe comic run. Took me years to complete it. I tried to do it twice, but I always stopped reading in the 60's.
