May 18, 2016 - Update

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.

May 11, 2016 - Update

Breaking News!!!!  Updates!!!! Every Week!!!!   Ha...ha...ha ha!!!!   Life & time just goes too as much as we'd like to update more often, we'll have to settle for finding, listing, selling, and shipping MORE GREAT STUFF!!!!!  And, maybe this will be the  year we can update more often!!!

Updated Categories:  Original Accessories & Parts

 While doing a web host upgrade (did I mention time goes too quickly?), we decided to do some long overdue category clean up.  One of the key items we'll be adding to Categories is an "Accessories/Parts" sub-category to many of the major categories (starting with GI Joe & Mego).  ALL ORIGINAL parts and accessories repros.  We'll be continually adding product over the next several months....well, and, I guess, forever, really.

Our Content & eBay Listings

The age of the internet...knowledge at our fingerprints.  There's nothing better than collectors being able to share/learn with fellow collectors and reduce misinformation floating around the web/eBay.  While we all benefit from a great Google search, there is a lot of time and energy....and personalization that we put into our listings.  As such, we ask:  If you are going to use the content from our website in your listings, PLEASE rewrite them.  We try to personalize our site and wholesale copying of our content is incredibly frustrating to us.  And, yes, we run into our "copy" all the time - we do recognize our own writing! 

Buying    Buying    Buying   &   Want Lists

We are always looking to buy quality vintage collections of Megos, Superheros, Monster, Aurora Models, Barbie, Star Wars, Beatles, Sci-Fi, Animation-Cartoon Characters, Disney, Lunchboxes, Spy (Bond, UNCLE), Star Trek, Personality & More.  Feel free to email list of picture/prices or call.  Save eBay fees - send your sales list to us first!  It's a win-win for all.

Some of our best items sell within minutes of being listed on our website....some items sell BEFORE they are ever listed on our website....How is that possible?????  Want Lists!!!...We love working with regular customers, and we have quite a few that have sent us specific "want lists".  If we get an item they are looking for, we can email them before it ever goes live on our site.  So, if you have a specific item(s) you are looking for, email us a detailed want list....and we'll do our best to fill it!!!

Duane Smailus 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's quite a treat!

Christmas' Past

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!

Thanks for your continued support!!

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 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!

Best Regards,

Laura & Louie
