This year I purchased my first ever dealers table, I have been Doing Mego Joes for a couple of years now but all flocked head AT Joes... And ever since Hasbro dropped the ball for Joes 50th Anniversary I had wanted to do this project, I've been putting it together little by little and we are 99.9% complete... I tried to come as close to what you would have received when we all got our first Joes.
If I don't sell a single one it's ok at least I have a table to put my purchases instead of having my daughter Dominique run back to my room every 5 mins lol
There were a lot of people who helped this project come to fruition
My wife for allowing me to take on this task
Joe Zeta provided the poster so I could go to staples and mass produce copies
Austin Hough provided the heads
Paul Wasson the Green Army Hats, Dog Tags and Insignias
Todd Mello the Blue Pilot Hats
Greg Jensen provided the Coffin Boxes and Boot removal instructions
CTVT for the Navy outfits
Mego for the Pilot, Army and Marine outfits
I painted the heads �� And Assembled ��
So Ladies and gents and Mego and GI Joe lovers I present
Mego Joe 1964

Thanks Berto, yes they are 8 inch Mego scale, less than 2 weeks :)

Supes they are $80 each and yes you do not need to be at Mego meet to buy them, I'm hoping to continue on with these after Mego meet as well, let me know :)

And thank you all for the kind words!!!
