Well I’ve just come down from another foray into the loft, after another enthusiastic afternoons rummaging around. I’ve managed to get to the last couple of boxes and have re discovered the last of the Takara Combat Joes. ( I’ve also found some old Tamiya 1/35 scale model kits, but I guess that’s something for a different forum)
The boxes I managed to reach contained to the last of the Takara Combat Joe figures that I have, at least I think this is the lot.
Todays foray uncovered
A second Takara Combat Joe Boxed CHiPs outfit, A loose Takara combat Joe dressed in a WW2 American Soldier outfit, A loose Takara combat Joe dressed in a Modern (in 1984) US Soldier outfit A couple of Boxed Combat Joe SWAT outfits. and and finally A couple of Boxed Takara Combat Joe basic figures boxes numbered #1 and #3 And a couple of bits of loose Takara Combat Joe paperwork. All in all not a bad afternoon.
It’s obvious I now have several duplicated items so I’ll probably sell some of them on, once I’ve had a proper chance to look at them properly.
In the mean time, here are a few pictures of the items I’ve rediscovered this afternoon

Yes it’s proving to be quite a treasure trove, of forgotten collectibles.
I’ve unearthed all sorts of other stuff too, most of it is from when the kids were little, Playmobil figures and play sets, Lego kits, wooden train sets and tracks, Plan toys traditional beech wooden trucks, tractor, trailers etc. Model 1/35 scale 1/72 scale aircraft and tank kits from Monogram and Tamiya, die cast whizz wheel dinky sort of car things.
also a lot of more mundane domestic stuff crockery cutlery tea services, and the like which we’ve not used in years.
I also found another Takara Combat Joe German Panzer outfit, but it’s not complete though.
I think it’s going to be a busy weekend of trips to the charity shops.
