Hi folks,
this is a shout out to my US Compadres. Looking for some stateside intel.

I'm in US ( Gaithesberg Maryland ) at the end of March . I'll have the Monday 20th to get over jet lag and do a bit of back ground prep. I'm just wondering If I dropped into Walmart/ToysRUs or some such similar store would there be any GI JOE or similar bargains to bag ?

Take care
Gunner

I don't know about anything in the New England area, but the only place you're going to able to find GI Joes are antique shops/malls, and flea markets. Kinda like a boot sale.

There is no new GI Joe product around.




Thanks Hasbro.

Like AY says there is no new Gijoe items in Walmart stores etc...

I found a few 90's GI Joes in a couple of flea markets while I was in Florida a few years ago. I think I paid about $3 or $4 each. I did see some more about $10 each with clothing, but they were a bit tatty.

Antique shops are a great source for Joes! Nate picks up his joes there all the time, not like our boring old shops lol!

When I've been to NY there were several comic shops that sold vintage joes .
Don't know what the rest of the country would be like though, see if you can find a comic shop in that area would be my advice.

Great tip Jet,
I'll do another search- From trip advisor it looks like Gaithersberg might be a bit light on Joe sources Crying or Very sad
Take care
