I never get tired of seeing this collection. Coincidentally I was just talking about it earlier today. The Star Wars and MOTU displays are equally as amazing.
Both times I've been up there my camera has been in the shop. The third time will hopefully be the charm.
It's too bad they didn't get better pics of the custom Night Force Flagg. It's one of my favs.

But then I live in the NW too, back East I imagine a display like that might be more of a problem.
But seriously. This close to a shipping port from Hong Kong. . .back in '92 we were literally choking on surplus figures and vehicles. I know two guys that have literally that many Joes, and they aren't dealers.
Listen. The 80s Joes really aren't that rare. The sense of rarity comes from the competition that results from 2 or 3 bidders online that think any particular item is truly rare.
There are only a handful of products from the 80s ARAH era that are truly HTF (the Sears sets, the CAT I, Mickey Mouse CC, etc). All the rest are still MISB and stocked ceiling high in the storage units of a very old toy-collector on dialysis in So-Cal, for example.
The first generation of the pre-internet ARAH Joe collectors, guys like Lenny Lee, Mike Livanos, and Ted Isaacs, were like some kind of old dragons. . .or leprechauns with their overstock Joe hoards; trading sealed items that no one else wanted at the time.
Just ask Tommy Wheeler sometime. ;)

I've looked at his collection many times and it always amazes me. I still remember going to his house before he got the store and seeing everything in his apartment. He opened his closet and all he had in there were Night Ravens. He's a great guy and has helped me immensely with my collection too. If you're ever in the Vancouver area, you should make the effort to go there. Just look up Toytraders Langley for directions. It's really worth it. He's got some really nice Star Wars displays too.
