Toy Shop Haul

Postby Andy Khaliq » 10 Oct 2009 23:44

Believe this or not, I recently found a toy shop that had loads of action force STILL ON THE SHELVES that they had not sold. This was only a few weeks ago it was incredible. 6 snow cats still in the window, it was like going back in time. The haul included a cobra rattler, 6 snow cats, dreadnock cycles, 2xtomax and zamot figures unpunched and immaculate (they charged me 3 quid each ha ha), rolling thunder, tiger paws, water moccasin, just to name a few bits. A lot of the cases were sealed, it took 2 transit van fulls to clear them out. Can you believe that, and they did me them for the prices they used to retail at with 25% off! WOW. It was one of the best days of my life I really couldn't believe it. Saying that I think I deserved it as I doubt there is anybody who hunts hasbro action force like I do. I am not far off having the lot, got around 50-75% of all releases moc or mib.

:shock:

Yes please!

What I really want are scans of the backs as well, please, for the filecards.

I have several already, I'll be posting a list of missing images over the next few days.

Do you have any flyers for the later GI Joe ranges other than these ones?

Do you have any loose figures and vehicles, or do you just collect MOC and MIB?

There's only one thing to say about that. f*ck me drunk. Mate, I can only imagine how you felt. Did you get buck fever when you saw them? Can't wait to see the scans too.

How come I never find these places, the only stuff I ever find is over priced rubbish that shops can't clear.
