I'll never forget the great purge of G.I. Joe ROC movie merchandise!They were literally passing these boxes out at the door ,where there were tons more stacked on top of each other just waiting to not be purchased.I say that because I'm pretty sure kids weren't interested In these at the time.Only slow footed adult toy collectors knew what these toys were all about and the value that came with them.I picked up both of these at 5 bucks a piece!Not too shabby considering both came with an action figure pilot.These two sit at the bottom of my shelving unit collecting dust with the only other two vehicles I own.They're still pretty damn neat and every now and again I'll pick up the Hydra and fly It around my room while making swooshing sounds.I still love my Gunship,too,!

SF doesn't have a TRU? That's crazy!Delete
They did, but then it closed (over a decade ago now I believe) heck Target just opened there about a year b4 I left 3 years ago.Delete

Crimson Hydra is neat. Is it a re-release? Wonder if it ever came in black?ReplyDelete
