This is a huge nice lot of 60 early 1980's GI-Joe A Real American Hero 3 3/4 inch figures. 59 different figures with one double added for an even number lot.
All of these are from the earlier first four or five series before they started getting funky looking with odd colors. There's quite a few fairly rare ones here so look at all the pictures closely for who they are and their condition.They were played with obviously, but for the most part everything is in above average used condition. ALL of them have been cleaned and have had new "correct size" rubber "O" rings installed. Conditions range from good to great with most being in very nice shape.
There's normal play and age on most, but there are no junk figures in the lot. Only a couple have somewhat heavy paint ware as shown.There are NO BROKEN THUMBS on any of them. There's only one broken crotch and that's on Zartan as shown. Almost all of the screw heads DO show at least some age and rust with some being worse than others. Around a third of the lot DOES have the normal slightly cracked elbow here and there, but none seem to be in any immediate danger of breaking, and as you already know is very common for these figures now. On about a third of them there are "mamma's sharpie marker marks" on the bottom of their feet. It's one of those "it's your brother's, not yours" kinda thing, I suppose.
Haven't tried to remove any of the marks, but most marker marks comes off with alcohol. Cobra Commander, Shormshadow and a couple of the lighter or white colored figures are discolored as shown. There's only four accessories included which are Firefly's backpack, Zartan's swamp skier thingy, Serpentor's chariot body and Serpentor's snake backpack, which is missing the peg to attach it to his back.
Overall this is a great lot of early first issue figures. Not for the mint collector that wants to get everything graded, but if you just want a nice lot of nice normal figures then here it is. No "straight arms" but they go up in series from there. I've tried to list any of the flaws I could think of, but just in case I missed something, please look at all the pictures closely and ask questions if you need to.
I ran out of picture space, but there's nothing sneaky about the backs of the figures. The backs look just as nice as the fronts. Not a mint lot, but most are really nice as you can see in the 12 pictures. You get everything and only what's shown. I don't know what else to say about this lot, but there shouldn't be any reason to try and return them.
If the lot doesn't sell after a while I may list them as singles, but for now I want to leave like they are, all together. To keep things as simple and enjoyable as I can for my buyers, and a lot less stress for myself. Ask any questions you may have about the listing.
