    Nice lot! The Swamp Craft snare goes for quite a bit just by itself.

      Mail call was nice once more! I bought a small lot, with just an Action Soldier, and an Adventure Team ATV. The ATV as you can see, has the winch intact, but without the crane arm. That I can find easily, in original or repro. This is the first unbroken winch I have even had. The ATV is a little rough, but I don't think any restoration is required, since it only looks like it has been seeing rough use by the Adventure Team. So it joins the auto-fleet as is. The soldier has ripped shirt and trousers, but nice original brown boots. He will be re-outfitted as my second Green Beret. I have all the pieces ready for him. 100 men we test today, but only 3 for the Green Beret!!!!!!

        Ah, the joy of rediscovery! I often find stuff I forgot I had in one of my bins. Almost as much fun as finding something cool at a yard sale...

          Mail call today brought the helmet for Smoke Jumper, the silver metal detector "arm" for Buried Bounty, a short pole and a long pole for the AT Tent (I still need two long poles), and 4 gold coins for Eight Ropes of Danger. Previously I have only found 1 until now. I've been on a buying binge. I need to stop for a while and restock the dollar supply. I also did some reorganizing in the "study/Joe room" last night. I'll post some pics here soon. I moved my Troubleshooter and my new ATV up on top of the file cabinet where the Training Center cave used to be. I also moved the Training Center upstairs to the study, and a much safer place.

          I've also been trying to find my bag of 7000 Jeep parts for a possible trade with another collector. The bag is no longer where I put it. So the search continues.

ID:	5183 Here's the new arrangement on the file cabinet. The Troubleshooter has the repro small antennas in a plastic bag sitting on the seat. The ATV needs to have the winch restrung, since this ATV had lost it's original yellow string. I have the correct string and hook, and I'll retie the knots and wind the string when I get a chance. The crane arm also is not original to this ATV, but came from a broken winch assembly in my parts stores. You can also see my awesome Frankenstein boxed figure in the background, and the Gi Joe CC convention set "Return to the Hidden Temple". One of the best of the con sets IMHO.

              Nice looking vehicles. I need to dig out my ATV. I believe it is still sitting over at my moms house. Also, the Sideshow Frankenstein's Monster is awesome. One of only 2 12" Universal Monsters figures to come out at retail. The other is The Wolfman. i remember seeing these when I worked at TRU and I had to buy them. They were both $29.99 each. Ah, those were the days..........

                Mail call brought this latest Joe to my door. He is virtually flawless, and comes with the Karate top with original AT emblem, a red karate belt, and a white Big Jim Power Belt. This completes my AT Karate set. I've been looking for the red belt far and wide for a long time. Nice to finally finish this one. Now I need to get some Polident or some other solvent, and get to work whitening the gis I have, and the mat. Then this set will be ready for display.
