Categories: Okay. We had the brilliant - if we do say so ourselves - idea to not only break out loose parts/accessories into their own categories - but to ALSO group ALL loose parts/accessories under their own product groupings. So, if you're of the mindset to complete those sets, be they GI Joe, Star Wars, Mego, Barbie, or whatever, you'll need to start and stop in one place! The menu item is "Parts,Vintage Accessories,Parts (ORIGINAL)" - here's a direct link: Parts.

Collection - Jan 2016 Update
Duane is one of our favorite customers...and someone we consider a friend even though we wouldn't know him if he passed us in a hallway. Duane was (and still is in his own way) a serious collector, and in his 13 years of collecting, he amassed one of the premier GI Joe collections in the world (Vintage 1964 -1980s, 12" GI Joe and his foreign cousins (Palitoy, Ceji, Falcon, Geyper Man, Action Joe, etc). He's a bit modest and wouldn't advertise it as such - but we suffer no such ailments. He's a scientist by trade - and it shows in his attention to detail. You'll see examples of very rare prototypes - as well as hard to find foreign sets. While some items have sold (marked "SOLD"), he's still got a lot of great items. Even if you're not interested in a purchase, stop by anyway for a look of some rare items...it's quite a treat!

We love to celebrate "toys in their natural environment" and invite you to send in vintage pictures of yourself (or others - with their permission, of course!) opening up those toys of yesterday (heck, we'll even take birthday or other events of same!). We think it's great fun to share our experiences - I believe most collectors are in this, at least partially, to relive their childhood. Let's all share a bit! :) With that thought, our first entry is from one of our customers who was so kind to share his Christmas photo - 'Tommy' circa 1966 or so, age 10 or 11...getting ready to begin a fun filled day with the Cartrights of Bonanza fame!

In the beginning - Oct 12, 2006
And our website was born!!!! After being in business for over 20 years, we finally decided to officially develop and roll out our own website with the goal of making shopping on the Internet the rewarding experience it SHOULD be. Great Customer Service - High Quality Items - Detailed Pictures & Descriptions - Careful Shipping!!!! We're collectors first.....so we treat our customers how we'd like to be treated!
The site is a "live" document....we intend it to continue to grow. We really miss the old days of direct interaction with people, and we actually have a phone number you call if you wish!! Oh, if the desire to purchase something strikes your fancy, feel free to purchase away!
And feel free to tell a friend!
