Some recent examples of proper rushes:
- Opening Steve's parcel containing vintage Black Hole figures and a Q Force Sea Skimmer!

Absolutely agree 100%. I also have the benefit that AF was never sold in Aussie and GI Joe is not that popular so I've never seen most of them. Here's my recent rush list.
Wolverine and Hyena from Steve, man they are still the pride of my fleet. The Wolverine is a marvel to behold and I never get sick of looking at it. Claymore re-enactment under way...
Parts from Andy and Paul, DIY Action Force, BLOODY AWESOME.
Z Force Quarrel and Rapid Fire Motorcycle from the Baron, first (and only) Z vehicle, but damn Quarrel is hot and a cool bike to boot
Not to mention a Triad and Cosmic Cruiser with half the bits missing. I'm on a repair mission and have nearly completed a Satellite Defence, 1 down 2 to go.
Millennium Falcon for Xmas. What's to say, its just fraking cool.
Completing my Shadow after the vacuum had uncompleted him, thanks Muton.
MOC Aquatrooper from Paul463, I can see what gets MOC collectors off now, once the loose guys are complete.......
40th HISS tank, great example of keeping it traditional, brilliant.
Muton from SteveD, no one should be without a Muton. Ever.
And finally, repairing all the GI Joes I decimated as a kid. Only about 6 figures left to repair, so satisfying putting them back on the shelves complete after 25 years. With thanks to Dave in that department too.
Oh and speaking of Dave, seeing my sons face when he opened a package full of Clone Troopers was a huge highlight, it was like looking in a mirror from 1977. The little guy insists on opening all parcels that arrive now. Gotta be quick these days....
Its all the thrill of the hunt.
(Damn its been a good year)
