Plus, there are some really interesting sets that go for big money as repros because they are unique. For example the Aged Adventurer which is AT figure with balding head can easily top $300 and I am chasing a few Joelanta Joes and they always seem to go for big money because there were not many made and they don't show up on the secondary market very frequently.....I am still after a few like the Zeppelin Captain which is just an awesome figure but very hard to find and when they do show up...large $$$
    Speaking of reproductions, I got this from ebay a few days ago: The 2004 Target Timeless Collection repro of the 1964 footlocker and action figure. I made the seller an offer for what I was willing to pay for it, and to my surprise, he accepted my offer, so I'm happy. Usually, they will counteroffer.

    I never heard of the Aquanaut locker, so I googled it and it looks really cool. Apparently, they made a couple different themed foot lockers. I love the graphics and the fact that it comes with a shark! If I was still a kid, and dressed my Joe in scuba gear, it would be hard to resist putting him in the bathtub for underwater adventures!

    If it doesn't need to be original, check Cotswold Collectables for a repro.

    GI JOE 1969 is my favorite line and that Aqua Locker is one of the things that fascinates me most. Love the Aquanaut and all of that stuff seems to be so rare because it was such a small window of production. I think it is so cool that you have that in your collection.

    That is a very cool piece to have, Ronny. Nice pick up!

    Not Mego June Joe Acquisitions.

    First up is the Last Joe I owned as a child. Atomic Man!!! Shortly after winning the figure on ebay, I ordered the outfit from Cotswold.
    The figure was nicely priced...

    Because he had a Wonky eye. But what the hey. He displays nicely. I am currently working on getting his his Hand-Copter

    Next up is all about the Outfit...

    I have owned this Talking Joe for years. What had taken me til now to get was the Camo suit. Before getting this set, I had won another auction on Greedbay. When the seller seen how low the bidding had gone for the Camo-Suit, They Immediately contacted me and notified they had lost the camo-suit and would not be able to complete the transaction. Awe so sad

    What color is the Aquanaut locker? I have a repro Adventurer and Astro Locker. I also have the stickers and a spare military footlocker to make a repro Aqua Locker, but I have no real idea of what color it is supposed to be. Looking at pictures online is hard to determine the real color and I have never seen one in real life.
