About a month ago my father-in-law gave me a mint 83 HISS tank. Gun still clicks when you raise it and the stickers are perfect. He said there is probably more Joe stuff in the attic and he'll let me know whenever he gets up there......I'm still waiting.

Wow.. Great stories.
Had Flint when I was 6, my older brother (who I thought was cool and king of the world) told me it would be cool if we put flint on his kite and made him slide down like a cool zip line...
We tied him to kite, flew him high (yayaa!!!)...
He did start to slide down the string...
Got like 1/3 of the way, and he fell...
We lived in the country, our yard was massive.
I cried . He was my favorite joe. Duke be damned, Flint led my men into battle, and they followed him even into the bathtub where rusty screws awaited.
4 years later, I'm playing guns in the woods in our yard w/ friends, taking a shortcut and see a piece of plastic embedded in the ground.. Flint. Rusty, and clearly a deep cut in his arm where the kite string has sliced right through while he slid down, but intact. His O-ring had dryrotted but my fix-anything dad replaced w/ a gasket ring, and good as new.
Second story. Never got a new original Storm Shadow (cobra uniform), but someone had left at my house (I think) and had aquired one. In the winter in the country, it snows and stays white for most of the winter. Great Snowcat battles in the snow.. Original Snowcat + yellow missles= easy to find in the snow. Storm Shadow was a casualty of said missle, and got thrown many feet, to which, all white, he was gone.
Found him 2 springs later, spit up and arm hacked by the lawn mower.
My cousin inherited most of my Joes when I was 16 and moved out, but randomly found at least 4 since in scattered family boxes. WildCard, original Snake Eyes, Shockwave, Outback, Sgt. Slaughter, and Spearhead are all still in the collection.
