Just got back from visiting relatives in California. Took the opportunity to get a few GI Joe bargains and save on postage by having them delivered to my cousin from whom I then collected them. Got some excellent bargains! First up: Replacement wet suits for the frogman and the underwater explorer from the Project Are website. (To replace the infamous melting 40th AM ones!)
Next- 40th Frogman - got for $52.00 (£30 - ish)
And last but definitely not least, A Landing Signal Officer (complete with pencil!) Can't believe Ive picked this up for $15!! (About 9 quid!!!). I've been after one of these since I started collecting but usually have found decent versions too expensive.
Great haul! I've a friend moving to California this year hmmmm...........
Yeah - there are some great bargains and (for us) rarities to be had on the US E-bay site. Trouble is, the postage is usually a killer. If you can get around this somehow, then it's worth looking into. I had to force myself to stop buying things and having them sent to my cousin as began to wonder whether I would get them all in my suitcase! As it was, I had to carry most of my dirty washing in hand luggage so I could get the Joe's (and other stuff) in the suitcase.
