New To the Collection – G.I. Joe, Marvel Legends

Marvel Legends latest vintage wave is from Spider-Man (Animated Series) and I’ve passed on a couple of those figures because I really don’t need them… Until a picture came across my phone of Spider-Man and I gave in and told Rafael to go ahead and buy it. So now I have a classic Spider-Man figure and a classic style Ice-Man figure I got awhile back from a fig hunting trip. All I need now is Starfire to complete Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends.

Lately my focus is on vintage G.I. Joe. I been trying to build a dream team to my liking. Each figure will have their role… I’ll get more into that at a later date. But here’s my latest 3.75 figures I added to the collection.

Destro, Cobra Commander, and Zartan are three heavy hitters I needed to round out Cobra. Zartan is from Ninja Force, I just love those neon colors. Cobra Commander is version 3 in robotic suit, and when I picture Destro what comes to mind is V3 with the oversized collar.

Now on the Joe’s side I got Mainframe, Psyche Out, and Recondo. I’m not familiar with Mainframe or Psyche Out, but somewhat am with Recondo. I remember another kid bringing his figure to school for recess. This was around elementary, so I had Beach Head at the time.

So… I went fig hunting and eBay buying when I was in the middle of writing this and I got a couple figures and ordered a few G.I. Joe’s.

I stopped in a GameStop and they had a good stock of Black Series, Marvel Legends, and Power Rangers but nothing appealed to me until I went through their clearance box and found a Marvel Legends Dazzler on vintage X-Men card for $15 bones. I have this figure already MOC, and I hate to be “that guy” but I bought it anyways to have it loose.

Since Target is right next door I wanted to see if they had any G.I. Joe Classified and WWE Elites and surprise! They did. They had the Legends Series 7 wave and two Roadblock figs but passed on them to get a Ultimate Edition – Shinsuke Nakamura because I’m putting together a New Japan section on my figure shelf.

As for the Joe’s I bought off eBay, I don’t want to spoil anything because I’m putting together my G.I. Joe dream team and I don’t want to give my picks away.
