For my birthday and Memorial Day Weekend, we drove down to see some dear friends in New Jersey. I did some antiquing, but didn't find any vintage Joes to buy. It wasn't a total action figure loss. A local hobby shop had a small Joe that I picked up.




If I had more money, my guys could have gotten some sweet rides!





A trip to the USS Intrepid museum did feature a Gi Joe.






I did pick up nice vintage fig last week via Ebay. I've wanted a Captain Action for a while; and was able to grab a decent armless one. I gave him some arms from the Knight of Darkness.



Inspired by this Osprey image,



I've made my CA a Coastie!

I splurged a bit for by birthday. Along with the Captain Action, I grabbed a nice Johnny Hero lot from the UK! As a nice surprise, the auction showed 3 caps, but there were 4 in the package! They're one of the very few styles of headgear that fit over the Joe flocking. I'll have to decide who gets the short straw as an Orioles fan! LOL

Thanks! The lighter blue cap could be a Cubs one, though without the insignia it might have also been a Dodgers or Mets cap. (The Royals started the year after the JH line ended).
