In the wake of the dreaded photobucket betrayal, I've decided to replace these photos as I go, so that I may have a cleaner thread. Smile

I'm going to start with whatever group shots I can find.

Action Men

GI Joes

I'll continue augmenting old posts and adding new ones until I'm done. Very Happy

Fantastic stuff Action! you have some great figures. I actually quite liked the tattoo'd Joe Very Happy . I wonder if the original owner remembers putting those initials on him? It really gives him character bounce .
Great boots on your custom astro Very Happy , are they what the original Joe astro came with?

I gave whomever did it a fictional name and backstory.

Ronnie Tiederman was born in Francine, Iowa, within a week of Christmas in 1958. He received this GI Joe (his first) for Christmas/His Birthday in 1965. His family moved in the 70's, and in the 80's or 90's, Ronnie, now an adult, sold his first GI Joe at a garage sale, to the Gentleman I bought him from.

No, the Jumpsuit and the boots are Cotswold.

GI Joe Con 2016 "Eight Ropes of Danger/Descent into Darkness"

I purchased this set, believing that the 2016 GI Joe Convention was going to be the last one. After I bought it, I found out that the GIJCC got a two year extension.

I also purchased this set, because it contained the one figure I thought I'd never get, an "Adventures of GI Joe Aquanaut." Who is super cool. I've taken to calling him Ishmael.

It is now one of the crown jewels in my collection, because it's super cool.

Really great figures... we love GI Joes here at Tom K HQ, but that tattoo is awesome... no doubt the result of a drunken outing in Singapore or Saigon that ended up in some dodgy inking parlour... Razz

INCOMING!

Recently purchased a 40th Infantry and Support Weapons set from Cotswold. Should arrive Monday, maybe before.



I can't wait. I'm taking suggestions as to what to name the figure that comes with.

Figured I'd update my thread here a little bit, nothing much right now, the majority of my collection is with my parents.

First is a Joe Dress Marine, part of the stuff that gibri sent me. I suggested to him this uniform, and he said he should be able to get one to me, so I was expecting it, what I wasn't expecting, was that he'd send a figure.

ActionYankee's Yankees and Chaps DSC_0007_zpsovcbcef4

The uni is 40th, the boots are vintage, and the figure is Timeless.

(took me forever to get him to properly shoulder his rifle)

He was my first, and the one I've wanted for 10 years or so. Very Happy


Finally snagged him in July/August. Cool
