I do miss my Black Hawk. I sold it at (clearance) cost to Loaded back in the day so he wouldn’t get scalped. (Pretty sure that good 1:18 karma won me the Spotcat! :p) I hope his B Hawk is still being displayed and appreciated wherever he is these days.

Those giant arm hinges are just hideous.

Do they have swas'es on the arm bands?
Yeah they have full nazi markings on the little guys as far as I can tell. Probably why they don't say 21st Century on them.. wonder if they were made as a special order or something?

So much crap stored away.. I'll post more pictures tomorrow. I was serenading PCS with them all day.

I think they're by 21st Century right? There is conveniently no company name on the packaging.
They're 21st's work, alright. They just grabbed a bunch of parts (mostly the two Ardennes infantry bucks, but it looks like a couple of the early Germans that JSI ended up getting the tooling to are in there as well.) and slapped a late '30s SS parade dress paint job on all of it. I think these were thrown together at the end of 21st's existence, and I think we all know why they kept the company name off of the packaging. I still want one of those stahlhelms. I guess I should have grabbed one when SmallJoes was selling individual figures.

That makes sense. Figure wise they're kind of lame with the shitty 21st articulation and what not.. but you're not buying them for those features I don't think!!

Here is my GI JOE LOT FOR SELL! 6 fucking boxes worth of ARAH and ARAH-adjacent.. stuff. I'm going to be posting it here first, then the Book of Face and TissHank etc.

Good god I'm jealous. I missed out on almost everything shown. Online prices for these are insane now. You would think with the resurgence of 1/18 scale figures from various kick starters and companies bbi would get their act together and start remaking these or at least sell the molds to someone who will instead of making the more toy-Etic looking vehicles they do now. They were the champions of detail at one point. I am also interested if your selling any bbi stuff. A used Blackhawk whatever ya have basically. I would like to own 1 before I die

Yeah, hopefully the molds are not damaged or destroyed after all these years. I wonder how Merit did with their Huey re-release? It seems like they're still going for around $100 on the secondary market, so it definitely dropped that price when they re-released it.

I need to find and fix my Super Coburas...

FYI, I saw Motormax helos at Hobbytown USA over the weekend. They looked like similar molds to the helos we got years ago, but some of them had electronic sound functions. AH-1, Blackhawk, and at least one other. Pretty good looking birds. Didn't check the prices, but I assume retail is far below ebay prices on the old ones.

I'm not sure.. they're worth ridiculous amounts of money now, but I'd feel weird charging so much. Leaning towards keeping them but we'll see. I need to do a full helo accounting as I have a lot.
I wouldnt be against paying up for them if you do decide to offload any
