I have a decent sized GI Joe collection from when I was a kid I'd like to part with. Some cool stuff, like the Headquarters and Skystriker, plus assorted other vehicles and figures. I went through it all and figured out what everything was, but have no idea where the best place to sell something like that is. Should I just ebay it? Is someone here interested in seeing what I have?

I collect the figures, and I would love to see some pictures. However, I only collect 1983-1994. I hate the 82 SA's. If you can not move them here then eBay is probably your best option. YoJoe, and HISS used to be great places to unload 80's-90's collections, but now the collectors on the forums are only interested in the new lines. This has been my experience...

Thanks for the feedback!

I'm working on getting photos online - we took pictures of everything but they're on my wife's phone. I will transfer them and get them onto tinypic's asap.

If anyone is interested, here's the full list of items I still have [I sold a bunch of the figures to a younger friend when I was a kid]. I spent the time looking everything up on a gijoe site to figure out what everything was and if anything was missing.

All of these are from the early 80s.


------------------------------
FILE CARDS (but no figures):

Cobra H.I.S.S. Driver
Recondo
Cobra Stinger Driver
Torpedo
Cover Girl
Airborne
Ripper [clean vertical fold down center]
-----------------------------

*CARDED FIGURES (but I do NOT have any of their File Cards):

-Blowtorch V1 complete with helmet, gasmask, 'manpack', flamethrower

-Firefly V1 has backpack, backpack cover, submachine gun. MISSING his walkie talkie

-Mutt V1 has Junkyard dog, leash, helmet, mask, nightstick, MISSING his submachine gun

-Flash v1.5 complete with helmet, visor, laser backpack, laser gun. IMPORTANT: I must have crazy glued the gun into the backpack when I was a kid. Not the best job, not the worst job. Snip apart and clean or leave as is. Note that another backpack (slightly different color) and laser gun are in a pack below.


*VEHICLE FIGURES (Sold only with their vehicles, listed below)

-Copperhead (Moccasin)

-Ace V1 (Sky Striker) complete with flight helmet (only selling with Sky Striker)

-Steeler (MOBAT) v1.5 complete with helmet, headset, uzi. BROKEN AT WAIST. Plastic is fine, just whatever 'connects' his legs to body internally is broken.

-Clutch (VAMP) v1.5 complete with helmet


IDENTIFIED PARTS FOR FIGURES (some more, later)

-Ripper's Power Jaw

-A hose, most likely Ripper's

-Helicopter Assault Trooper Backpack (most likely Duke's... I don't think I owned Airborne and I can't judge shade of tan w/o the other)


*** RANDOM FIGURE:

1 non-GI Joe character, I believe it is Snake, enemy of Sgt. Rock.

------------------------

COLLECTOR CASE

Tara Toy G.I.Joe Collectors Case from 1984
-in nice condition... no crushed corners, inserts look great, etc. My first name and last initial neatly markered on one edge (if stored handle up, with art looking out for display, the name would be unseen, on the edge touching the ground)


ACCESSORY SETS
----
Partial Battle Gear Accessory Pack #1
includes:
Explosives Pack
Communications headset
Communications Backpack
Laser Backpack
Ammo Backpack
Binoculars
2 Brown helmets
A uzi [i think] missing the bottom part of its grip, making it look like a machine pistol or something [maybe it's own piece? Just guessing it was a Uzi, looks good as is]
rifle
3 visors
----------

UNKNOWN PARTS:

- One green rifle that may or may not be GI Joe. Looks sort of like the green airborne rifle, but that's from 94 and all this stuff is from the early 80s.

- 1 black submachine gun. Couldn't find it in WHOBIT, but it's kind of like an Uzi with a extended mag and a shoulder stock.

- my favorite gun! I couldn't find this in WHOBIT, so I don't know if it's GI Joe but it fits GI Joe and I didn't really collect anything else back then. It is olive green. In addition the grip, it has a 3/4 circle 'arm grip' on the stock that secures to the figure's arm. The top of the gun looks mechanical. There is a cool diagonal offshoot from the gun with a small square at the end [a fancy computerized sight?]

- 1 big black radio (or something like a radio). Rectangular, with antenna. Surprised i couldn't find this in WHOBIT.
Random unmarked missile

- 2 identical missiles, one marked M-3432-14-18, the other M-3432-14-19

- 1 mystery missile. Likely GI Joe based on looks, but I have no idea what for.


--------------------

---------

---------
VAMP 1982 - Complete except MISSING one gas can (still has the other one)

I am interested in the file cards, Firefly v1, Ace w/Skystriker, & Cobra CLAW if you decide to move your collection here on GTZ.
