    Case of Gijoe talking chests found in barn.

    I was looking through old Ebay listings recently to find current values of Super Joe and found a completed listing for a Case of vintage Gijoe talking chests(Not Action Man version) went for $700-800 the case had 75 units in it. would have loved to play them so I would know if they were talking soldiers or what. Here's a pic I saved from the auction. Several layers deep. If you want to find it, look under completed auctions Super joe on Ebay. I forgot to copy link....doh!!!

    Thanks! I can get very dyslexic with numbers sometimes so my memory was way off on this one. More than I would spend but roughly at $12 each for vintage Gijoe Talking chests it's a bargain for unused talkers assuming they work. Even if they are talking commanders you should easily double money but if any other talkers you could make 10X over long term. If talking Sailors, Marines, or Pilots you could do very well indeed.

    An amazing find.

    Maybe someone worked at the toy factory, one case at a time instead of one piece at a time. G.I. Joe assembled with parts from many different years.....

    -or they got some free parts when the place closed.
