Finding Joes in the wild

Postby Hedrock » 01 Aug 2017 18:57

A few weeks ago I went into an old second hand shop and found a box of vintage Star Wars figures. The lady who owned the shop had a couple of Action Force figures in there unawares to her also.
So I picked up Snow Serpent and Motor Viper for £3 each! The rush and the buzz of finding some original figures in a shop nearly 30 years on was amazing! Plus it was these two fantastic army builders in great shape with tight joints and near perfect paintwork.
So, I was wondering do you still stumble across figures in shops or where do you get your figures these days?

Ditto Hedrock :) Haven't had a real blood pumping moment like that in a while. Especially the bit where, with figure find in hand, you ask how much...and it's a bargain!
I had a fantastic run of luck across car boot sales a few years ago. Star Wars, Action Force, M.A.S.K, Thundercats etc. The stuff dreams are made of!!
A dear friend of mine rocked up at my house once with a vintage A Team van complete with all four of the team. He found it in a junk shop in Stoke-on-Trent. Bliss!! :)

That would have been a thrill. I can still smell the rows of Action Man in the toy shop....
Let me tell you, Gunner La-De-Dah Graham, the British Army can fight anything! Intimate or not!
