I just completed my POC / 30th collection as far as retail stuff goes.

How many of you have a complete POC / 30th Collection?

It took me one month of aggressive retail shopping , a HISS Tank Meet and ebay to complete my collection.

Now it is on to the cancelled / unreleased figures.

I don't have enough money to be a completest! I do have all the 30th figures, aside from the 7 packs and the Con stuff if those are counted as part of the 30th...

I would, but I can't pull the trigger on the whirlwind kick SE and SS. I think I have pretty much everything else.

I'm completing it over time. Last year I bought the Dukes, Snake Eyes & whatever after not buying joes since I was a kid in the 80s. Now I buy what really sticks out or is hard to find. I'm not in a rush though. I don't keep on card, so I'm not sure if I'll get every single one. So far I have (not for trade) all Dukes, Hawk, Steel Brigade, Quick Kick, Spirit Iron Knife, Money Bags Destro, All Snake Eyes (except Renegades), Wave 1 POC Storm Shadow, all Cobra Commanders, Blowtorch, Croc Master, Firefly, Jungle Bat, Zombie Viper, Tunnel Rat, Lifeline, Sci-Fi, Air-Tight, POC Firefly, Hazard Viper, Renegades Trooper, Doom Cycle, & Skystriker. I think that's it.

My ME figure collection is complete including all the convention figures. I also have some (far from all) preproduction and cancelled figures as well.

I have a complete 25th anniversary collection including all SDCC figures and I have a Complete POC collection. I stopped collecting when the 30th figures hit as I just didn't get the same vibe off of it all that made me want it.

I thought I wouldn't be able to compete the POC collection due to the HISS SCout and the Cycle not making it to the states and everyone wanted close to a hundred for it. But then a ROSS miracle happend.

I have every figure i want from the line, but there are figures that I don't want and don't intend on buying. "mostly peg warmers" I might still go get the his scout and cancelled cobra commander with the drone, haven't made a commitment to these yet. I don't see the point in buying every figure from a line, to me that's like rewarding Hasbro by purchasing figures I don't like.

Of the 549 ME figures and major variants I'm missing 5 figures. I'm also missing about 20 minor variants, and I have a few of the canceled figures. So I'm not complete, but I'm close.

i think all that im missing from PoC/30th is the 7packs (drednoks/marauders)

This I Command!
04-04-2012, 05:34 PM
I've got all the POC and 30th stuff. Still missing a few of the 25th and ROC drivers and multi-pack figures.

I never saw a lot of PoC at retail, but i preordered or tracked down via friends everything i really wanted.


If i'd found it all at retail i would have bought it, though.



So... nope.

Wow. You guys are amazing.

All I'm missing is... um... everything but PoC Snake-Eyes. :D

Anyone have pics? I have to live vicariously through you guys now.

No, but have all that I want...well, I was sort of craving temple guardian snake eyes for a hot second, months back. I'm fine for now.

Well, if you're counting Cold Slither Zarana & The SDCC Skystriker, then no I don't have a complete 30th collection. I have everything else though, which feels pretty good.

I have the majority of POC, I'm still missing a few figures and vehicles but they are ones I really don't care for much.

Enzo
04-04-2012, 06:52 PM
Complete here...with multiples of pretty much everything.
I don't know why...I have issues. :/

I pokemon'd the crap out of ME. I caught them all. Still need 4 of the unproduced figures, but I have some of the rarer ones.

04-04-2012, 07:05 PM
I am missing Money Bags Destro, Jungle Bat and Shadow Tracker. I hate this thread because I want to answer yes to the question so now I am going to have to get on Ebay and buy the last figures that I am missing.

04-04-2012, 07:09 PM
I don't consider myself a completist, but I'm pretty sure I have them all, lol. I'd like to think I have them all from the 25th on, but I don't have all of the exclusive figures.

Wylde Weezle
04-04-2012, 07:15 PM
I wish I could afford to be a completist. I don't have the con exclusives, the smaller vehicles and mechs, the 7packs. I would have to resort to eBay for a Shadowtracker and a Renegades Storm Shadow to get everything I really wanted, but I'm pretty content with what I've been able to get at retail and comic shops.

I don't obsess too much over what I don't have; I'm running out of space anyway. I'm really happy that I have what I consider a complete 25th/Modern Era representation of my favorite ARAH years, 1982-84 (I use a DTC Cover Girl). I wish they'd give us the 1985 Joe team guys that are MIA: Tollbooth, Keel Haul, non-exclusive Footloose etc.

04-04-2012, 08:36 PM
I've got a complete set of everything from RoC forward. I've bought them all at retail so It wasn't really about the money, it was more about the timing.

Iok
04-04-2012, 08:40 PM
Aside from Spirit Iron Knife (although I have one pending, hopefully!) and the mail-in Cobra Commander with the drone, I've got everything from PoC.

I also have everything from the 30th/Renegades - not including duplicates/repackages from PoC and con-exclusives - but for me, that's complete enough.

And yeah, I was very lucky with my timing and shopping, too.

I never understood why the Mail-Away CC with Drone was considered POC instead of ROC? Make no sense. It came out on the tail end of the ROC line, is in the exact ROC packaging. It should have been on the POC cardback.

That said, I guess it has been brought to my attention I am missing 1 figure from POC lol. The drone Commander. (that's if it really counts...)

Yeah, true. I guess for me it's just because he was officially released AFTER the PoC version. But yeah, you're right - he's technically a RoC figure, I'd say.

Let me see, I dont have:
1. Drednoks Marauders 7 pack... YET! waiting for ROSS. LMAO!
2. Snow Job (v7) What can I say I'm from Hawaii. =)
3. Destro (v26) I can still pick him up till this day! Do I want to?probably not.
4. Mechs, Dont have any, Dont want any! Maybe the revamp Wild Weasel?
5. Hiss scout/Cycle armour can never find one. =(
6. Snow Serpent Officer (v2) Maybe one day if Hawaii ever snowed. =)
7. Blowtorch (v4) The colors dont jive with the rest of the line.
8. Hawk (v6) I gave up looking for this POS a long time ago. Not willing to pay $20.00 + for it.
9. Cobra Commander (v45) Dont need another one.
10. Jungle B.A.T. I never saw one in the wild nore am I gonna pay the markup on these.
11. Cobra Commander (v48) To many and to cartoony for me.
12. Firefly (v23) Not feeling this Firefly.

Renegades Storm Shadow would be on this list as of yesterday but thanks to MELIKEJINX for pointing me in the right direction I was able to get one last night. I will be forever thankful Jinx!

Damn, I forgot that I dont have Sci-Fi, Airtight or Law & Order... I did however get multiple Zombies from BBTS and a Lifeline for $17.00 off the bay.

Everything except Renegades Cobra Commander, Sci Fi, and Airtight.

If you count vehicles, I didn't get a Black Hiss Tank or Crimson Hiss Tank.

Also didn't get Ashiko or Hiss Scout, although I planned on getting Ashiko if I come across one.

04-04-2012, 11:29 PM
I have all except for the last bravo and alpha POC vehicles and then I do not have the 7 packs and con exclusives. Planning on getting the 7-packs, but I am not going to waste my time with the others, except maybe a Zarana and the cycle. I can't wait to get my ROSS built already.

Laser Viper
04-05-2012, 08:07 AM
I have 2 of everything from the 30th lineup, but missing Snowjob, Gen Hawk, Rock viper, Jungle BAT, SB, IG, Cobra Trooper and Viper. I have the rest of POC line up.

Only two things i am missing is the unreleased Tatum head jungle Duke and the Jungle Cobra Commander with the bug looking drone. (i know good luck with these two, they can be pricey).

MightyMegs
04-05-2012, 08:38 AM

Oh, but if you're counting exclusives in that, I don't have Cold Slither Zarana... but I'm not really missing her.

I was contemplating doing this as the first few waves were fantastic. Eventually there were just too many figures I had zero interest in owning in each wave. I eventually gave up and I've bought maybe two figures the last year or so.

I'm all about the Marvel stuff right now.

I am still lacking a Crazy Legs and both 7 packs. I'm hoping Joe Con will remedy both of those. Other than that I have one of everything and multiples of Shock Troopers, 30th Cobra, Vipers, IG's and Steel Brigade.

Oh, and Croc Master/Blow Torch I did not buy. They can call them PoC all they want, but until they release the variants I don't consider them important to my collection.

I am rapidly working my way towards 0% of the modern era collection. After selling off a huge lot of stuff last night i am down to a pair of Furies and a pair of brown Hisses with drivers. I also have a new Skystriker, I think thats everything I have left post 2005.

Anyone want some brown Hisses with drivers and boxes??

04-05-2012, 12:58 PM
I just picked up the cycle armor from Ross so I am now complete on both POC and 30th. I typically look at convention exclusives as their own thing and not part of the retail line (especially the club exclusives since they aren't even produced by Hasbro) but if you want to count exclusives I have all the SDCC stuff as well.

I'm also closing in on having a complete 25th collection and having at least one O-ring version of each character from the original line. Those are my next targets as far as Joe collecting goes.

I ahve 100% complete POC, 30th/Renegades is complete except for a VAMP mkII, and I have almost no POC, cuz I didn't like the majority of that line.

For Retaliation, I am gonna be pretty choosy about what I get...for vehicles; the Fangboat X2, a couple of those blue HISSes, and maybe that GhosthawkII. Figure-wise, they are hit or miss for me. I'll grab a couple of Cobra Troopers, Joe Troopers, one CC (he looks sweet), and a bunch of Night Vipers. The rest will be game-time decisions.
