Alot of us have large gaps from when we were getting Joes as kids and now, the 25th line as an adult.
I've been going back and getting vintage that I had missed after I had stopped as a kid, so those don't count.
Can you remember what the last stuff you actually bought as a kid (playing with Joes) was?

I stopped in '87/'88 but saw Big Ben in the store once and liked the figure so much had to get it.

Before the 25th line I hadn't collected a single Joe or toy since 1988. After the 25th line started I went back and started buying many of the RAH figures I never had.

Last figure before I gave it all up was Range Viper, coincidentally that was the first and only one I bought with my own money. I have no idea what my last vehicle was. If I had to guess I would say the Warthog only because it's in the best shape of all my original vehicles.

I collected the funskool and other vintage stuff through college. As far as the RAH line goes, when it was still in stores I think the last pieces I bought were
Star Brigade Destro
Razor and Desert Scorpion

I stoppled litterly when they made the last Joes in 1994 I think. The space Joes. I managed to get 1 alien and all the human characters. Then came back with the 25th.
Loyal fan since 1982.

I never stopped. Collected through GvsC, VvsV, ST and DTC. I would guess the last thing I bought was either DTC stuff when it clearanced on HTS, or something vintage. As much as I love 25th stuff, Vintage is where my heart is. It's still a thrill to match up figures and accessories to those! I don't think I'll ever outgrow them!

The only lines I skipped were Sgt. Savage, Extreme and Sigma 6. So my last Joes before 25th were DTC.

I collected from 1982-1990. I the last two ARAH Joe items I bought were the Cobra Hammerhead and the Joe Locust.
Before the 25th line I did purchase a few things. I bought a few of the VnV Figures mainly Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow. I think I bought another set or two because I know I had a VnV CC and one of the DVDs that had 20 Questions episode on it.
I also bought the Vietnam Comic Pack with the Stalker, Storm and Snake.
I also bought the first Sigma Six versions of Snake and Storm.
A Gem of That Size Answers ALL my questions.
