    I promised myself once I'd stick to collecting TF's althought I once used to have a nice collection of G.I Joes... however I trade them all away for TF's.

    But today I went nuts an I've spent around $365 (ship. incl.) ordering G.I Joes from ebay and BBTS - I just went on shopping spree and couldn't stop.
    So now there's a bucket load of figures I'm waiting for and starting to rebuild a small Joe collection again.

    Here's what I ordered sofar:
    25th Anniversary - Hooded Cobra Commander
    25th Anniversary - Zartan
    25th Anniversary - Wave 4 - Case of 8 (Cobra Commander, Cobra Air Trooper, Roadblock, Gung-Hogging-Ho, Scarlett, Destro, Duke, Storm Shadow)
    25th Anniversary - Wave 4: Cobra Commander
    25th Anniversary - Wave 5: Crimson Guard
    25th Anniversary - Wave 2 - Beachhead
    25th Anniversary - Wave 2 - Serpentor
    25th Anniversary - Wave 3 - Shipwreck
    25th Anniversary - Wave 2 - Buzzer
    25th Anniversary BATTLE ARMOR COBRA COMMANDER
    25th Anniversary STORM SHADOW wave 1 v1
    25th Anniversary SNAKE EYES wave 1
    25th Anniversary Cobra H.I.S.S. HISS Target Exclusive
    25th Anniversary A.W.E. Striker (AWE) Target Exclusive
    25th Anniversary Night Spector w/ Grand Slam


    Have any of you also tried going complete shopping spree ballistic... personally I think this is insane.... I must have had brain malfunction. :crazy: 
    I feel embarassed... and my bank probably wont be happy either.

    I wish you would of came to me in junkion exchange, I could of saved you quite a bit of money. I had a whole wave 1-6 set I would of sold you for way less than that, no vehicles but way less than that. I ended up selling my set for $210. I have already sold them though. They are awesome figures Im sure you will love them, enjoy.

    Awesome! I like the skystriker but I LOVE the phantom x-19. I just saw today on hisstank.com that they are releasing the conquest x-30 for the 25th anniversary line. So you may want to hold off on getting a orginal online if you dont have it. Unless you just want the orginal now since you already have the two other main joe jets. I have seen buy it nows on ebay for a complete conquest with slipstream in mint condition for only $36 plus shipping. Thats not bad considering the going rate for all the other joe and cobra jets.

    Yea I love them both. I had X19 Phantom for many years untill I one day traded it for a complete G.1 Scorponok, back then it seemed like a pretty good deal... but now I miss Phantom and Ghostrider, and the Skystriker I've always wanted since I'm a hughe swing-wing enthusiast.
    As for X-30 you're right, I heard rumors about it coming as 25th so I'm betting my $$ for than one.. but I hadn't heard anything about x19 or skystriker getting re-released so i thought i better find those while it's still possible.
    I am aiming for making up my old collection but with a few new additions. I'm primarily interested in the 82-84 stuff.
