Worst thing is, I made a list of vintage Joes I was going to buy and I've kept to that list very well. Now after watching these DIC episodes, I'm wanting to buy more figures from the 90s.  :P Which are, I might add, unexpectedly expensive.

The USPS finally found the Jinx that was delivered July 31st (  ::) ) and I also grabbed a vintage Steel Brigade version D (according to Mark Bellomo's guide) from ebay, though he lacks his rifle.

Congrats!  Sucks it took awhile for her to find you.  Honestly not sure what to do with my Zarana or this version of Jinx as I still have a carded collection of 25th stuff and this fits in nicely.  Well they would loose as well but just not sure if I want to shell out enough to have both versions of my Joes complete.  Still need Mr. Slaughter too.

I don't think I ever re-acquired a vintage Steel Brigade so will have to add him to my list!  Nice haul though Ben!

Is baby puke green Stalker still selling for insane cash?  Thinking of selling him off as I find it silly to own him, but stupid not to have the cash I could possibly get for him.

Thanks! Very happy with it.  :)

I'm not sure on Stalker. I know one of the DVD Battles sets had a similar yellow Stalker in one of them, which killed the value of loose ones. Carded might be a different story.

I'm pretty happy with the Steel Brigade. Super mint, came with his original baggie (opened on the side) and the patch, but the hard-to-find dark gray Airborne rifle isn't any easier to find. But I got a hell of a deal on it, so he'll probably just get a regular Airborne rifle.

I'm also torn on a carded Jinx and Zarana. I have a carded and loose Slaughter, but he was $15 cheaper than either of those two.

It does suck how Hasbro has to make these exclusives - I wouldn't mind it if they just put out comic versions of the Joes that I have no relation with, but c'mon!   >:(

Baby puke Stalker is still carded so I think he's still worth something, just have to brush up on my ebaying skills i guess.

Never found these at Target when they came out a few years back, but I found a set on ebay for the right price and put them together this morning. They're wicked cool. :) Now to go around the house making 'whoosh' noises.

Got this guy over the weekend.  Broke my post 1989 rule, but couldn't pass it up for $75.  Sounds work, but no lights.  Missing just a few minor things - including the General, but that's okay.

I have SE SS and CC hid all over the county dude.
Just let me know and I can pick them up for you.

Ive found so many Shipwrecks I have been making generic "blueshirts" out of extra retaliation trooper, DG "duke"  and Steel brigade heads on the DG Shipwreck bodies..

Got some more vintage Joes. The Tele-Viper, Psyche-Out, and iceberg are all perfect, but Zartan has a little more wear on the back than the seller indicated, but did have a complete and unbroken Swamp Skier, plus the backpack and mask were in great condition. Still a pretty good haul.  :)

Found another Shipwreck at DG...  He really would make a cool Joe Navyman...  Get a cast of original SW's hat and you're good to go.
