Ok, as we were all growing up, we probably had 1,000's of Joes between all of us here in the Tank. Including vehicles and such. Did anyone ever have the experience of having some of your Joes STOLEN?? Did you ever steal anyones Joes?? Did you ever whoop anyone you caught stealing your Joes?? I just thought this could be an interesting thread to start.

My friends and I would have massive Joe battles with all of our combined collections and it wasn't uncommon for some of us to leave with more or less figures than we came with. It wasn't that people were intentionally stealing, but when some one's mom calls and it's time for that quick clean up and sorting of 100's of Joe's things happen. I did keep an eye on my favorites of course.

Yes, in high school i had a display going, had a pal over he swiped some...
next day in school walking out to our the buses (i was a freshman) i punched him in the face and broke his nose. He bled like a stuck pig the whole ride home so i was later informed by my friend Melissa who rode his bus.
His mom called and bla, bla, bla. But when he confessed to taking my stuff, she said to her son, "that's why you don't steal." I got my JOES back....
And the rest is history.

OMG yes! I had this new kid move into our neighborhood, he had a ton of Joes... he had all the figures, all the playsets, all the vehicles etc. It was awsome, he was the same age as me and lived a few houses down, so everyday I would bring over my stuff to his backyard (he had a cool hilly type yard, perfect for playing Joes on) and after a while I noticed my Joe collection was getting smaller and smaller.... then one day while playing I caught the son of a B sticking some of my Joes in his pocket.
When I went home I told my mom about it, she of course being the one who bought them all went storming over to that kids house and told his mom what he was doing... as it turns out that kid stole well over 50 of my Joes and a few of my vehicles. When his mom made him give them back she also made him give me his favorites, his Terror Drome, his Rattlers and his favorite figures as a punishment.
It was funny because I stopped playing with that kid, but everyday he would see me in my front yard playing with all my Joes, plus his Joes that he had to give me. I bet he was sad... oh well thats what you get for stealing!!!!!!!!!!!!

When we wher little me and some of my friends from the nieghborhood would get together and play with our joes. One of the kids was older, about 4 years or so but he was the one the older kids didnt want him to play with them so he would come and hang out with us but would always act all tough since he was older. He didnt have many joes but we did catch him one time trying to walk away with some of my stuff but his cousin saw him and he and another friend kicked his ass! So from then on no one played with him until we got older and we let him hang around.

I had a good friend who lived across the street from me and we played Joes all the time. We were doing something or other at his house and I had the Cobras take Scarlett hostage and place her inside the empty area inside the HISS. We continued to play and when it was time to clean up, I couldn't find her anywhere. I was super naive as a kid so I kept opening up the turret and looking again and again, sure I'd misplaced her. I asked my friend, but he claimed innocense. I had caught him trying to steal my Destro gun before, but this was worse. Especially since this kid's parents were much better off than I was and gave him everything. I couldn't find it anywhere in his room and I never saw Scarlett again. I know he had it. I know it was on him somewhere, but I couldn't prove a thing.
If my old friend is somehow reading this: I know it was you. You broke my heart Tracy and I know it was you.

All I ever had was the B.A.T., so it wasn't too hard to keep track. The little bastards across the street took me to the cleaners for Go-Bots though. S'okay, they all got the crap kicked out of them. Parents were jerks though, and I never got anything back.

Well, I was a spoiled child, I always wanted a terrordrome but collected late as in tail end of 86, when all the good stuff was gone, terrordrome was discontinued, My buddy had one and my mom tried to buy it from him, he never played with it but he refused so I had to just enjoy it when I went over his house.
Another buddy of mine had everything and I had almost everything from may 86' and on, so we would exchange and borrow. We ended up breaking each others crap but its all good, I had a few He-Man figures stolen from me though, it was ok I had doubles, its probaly why when folks sell their collections on EBAY we see more than one Man At Arms and more than one Ram Man. Cause the shits hot son. Heh Heh
