This is my first ever vintage styled GI Joe. I've had him for at least 12 years, maybe 13. I don't know the exact date, but I'd guess it's the same Christmas dad got his Joe40 Frogman (Possibly 2004, when they were new).

So, given the fact that he's had 13 years of on and off play, (and some brutal storage conditions early on) he's got some wear and tear.

Here he is.

He's always had this stress crack, as far as I can remember. It's very peculiar, I've never seen one like this on a Joe before, or since. I've only seen it on wood.

Here's the other thing he's always had. A bent thigh pin.

Here's a relatively recent development, noticed it about a year ago. The most peculiar staining on his neck joint, shoulders, hip balls (not pictured), and a little on his wrists. I have no idea what it is, I tried rubbing some Witch Hazel on them, and it helped a little bit. Probably the wrong thing to use.

His face. He's got a yellow scar. I'll probably repaint it at some point. But not his lips. I like the fact that his lips have no color. But that scar color has gotta change. I also had him reflocked late last summer.


His Hands.

They started to rip a long time ago, now they're getting bad, as you can tell. I bought some Geyper repro KFG hands from Cotswold, and some pegs too, because those are part of the figure's hands, and the whole deal will have to get replaced.

Some of the originals actually left the factory with stress cracks, my brother's Action man had a small split on the wrist back in the day.

I know what that blackish stuff on his shoulder and hip balls is
he's going thru puberty
and he's spent way too much trigger time at the range with that trigger finger

Great looking Joe! and like so many others, he has some battle damage, but that's okay it gives him character cheers

Bah, he got that injury from all the combat he's seen. Very Happy
