    3 3/4 GI Joe parts

    Hi all,
    My son and I came across my old 80s 3 3/4 Joes (mostly 82-86 waves) and I thought itd be a nice project to restore them together. You know, replace o-rings, rusted screws, etc. We got started, but now I find myself wanting for a parts bin like I have for my Megos. I was wondering if any body here might have a bunch of broken Joes laying around that theyd be willing to part with at a fair price. I know its not Mego, but my guess is a lot of us collect or have collected other lines like the small Joes. I guess just PM me if you are able to help me out.

    Thanks,
    Steve

    I just sent a couple of text messages to two of my friends to see if either of them have a bag of 3 3/4" GI Joe body parts or something like that available. I have a handful of 3 3/4" figures (maybe 6 to 12?) and a few accessories (backpacks and such) available, but I don't think I have any broken 3 3/4" figures.
    Nostalgia just aint what it used to be.

    Thanks so much for checking. Parts/accessories and incomplete figures are what were looking for. Do you have a picture of the ones you have?

    I just rounded up the ones that I have. It's mostly just figures and not many accessories, but let me know if you're interested.

    Thanks,

    Ok, that's cool. I don't know a lot about the 3 3/4" stuff.

    Hey ,
    There's a guy named Brian I've delt with many times over the years. He sells a boatload of Joe's.
    Just search forcefull1's cheap Joe's. He sells fodder figures for like a buck, and you may be able to cut a deal for gallon zip lock bags of parts in bulk.

    Be careful opening and putting those Joe's back together. That plastic can be super brittle. I had a few where the screw destroyed the plastic, and they wouldn't go back together again. Then had to find replacement parts. Another fun project though.

    In addition to replacing the o-rings in mine, I also found replacement arms for the ones that had broken thumbs. I would help you out with parts, but all I have left are the broken parts that I replaced.
