UPDATE: So I am in Jacksonville right now and my Dad kept forgetting and forgetting to send the stuff, but I have it all here now. Here are some pics of all the figures. Didn't take any of the vehicles yet. Pics on page 7
My Dad is a maintenance supervisor an apartment complex. Apparently one of the residents moved out a week or so ago and he was going in to see what the situation was and he found that the guy left some stuff behind. This is not at all uncommon in the apartment industry having worked in it myself... but what he found was, which was the reason for the phone call.
He said in one of the closets he found a bunch of GI Joe stuff. He started describing it to me "you know the evil cobra twins? yeah they are still in the package." I asked if there was a comic book with it and he said he didn't think so. Hmmm. He then said there was an A-10 Warthog with an extra engine in the tale and a huge jet like 2 feet long that looked like an SR-71. I asked if one was blue and the other black, he said yes. He then said there were a bunch of ground vehicles and a bunch of figures with them.
I am really interested to see what is there. He's going to box them up and send them to me since the alternative is throwing them in the trash. He's going to send me some pictures tomorrow.
Sounds like it could be a pretty awesome find. Feel bad for the dude that left them behind but I guess he left a TV and dvd player and other random stuff too. I have so many stories on stuff people have left... but this one rules haha. I'll update this when I have more details...

something similar happened to a buddy of mine but it was a shitload of G1 transformers and a rental house of his moms.
"His cereal never gets soggy.It sits there,staying crispy,just for him."
"His organ donation card, also lists his beard."
"The police often question him,just because they find him interesting."
"He once punched a magician. Thatís right. You heard me."

That's a great find man. I wouldn't feel too bad though as this kind of thing happens every day. I know people that have found all kinds of crazy things while cleaning out abandoned apartments/homes, from envelopes of cash to big screen tv's to guns. It's strange to me what people decide to leave behind when they have to leave in a hurry. At any rate, congrats on the great find.

My Brother found a bunch of old Joes cleaning out this guy's house once. No vehicles though. Sounds like you may have hit the Mutha load.
