I know I had a great year in 2009 with my collection. I have once again embraced Joes fully, and have had the best collecting year I've ever had! That being said, my greatest find this year (I found it the last week of December, but bought it home today) was the Defiant. I am in awe of this toy, and I don't think any Joe vehicle (including the USS Flagg) tops it. What did you guys find this year that was awesome? My camera is on the fritz right now, but if you guys have pics, please share! This is a Joe collector's site, so let's talk about our great finds in 2009!

Best of 80s DVD pack at retail turned out to be a great find. It was back before we found out how hard to get they'd be. Same goes for the Sting Raider, and a lot of 25th figures I spotted once and never saw again.
The overall greatest addition to my collection was a huge lot of stuff from all eras, mostly vintage that was being given away by a local Tanker. I've found vintage too overwhelming to collect, but I had a ball rediscovering favorites and discovering for the first time stuff I had missed. It was amazing.

I would have to say it was a vintage Tiger Rat and vintage Python Conquest X-30 that I found at Goodwill for $5 each around Thanksgiving.
Other than that, I just got back into Joes this summer, since my 7yr old son showed an interest. Love the 25th stuff but don't like RoC at all, unless they are in a "resolute" style.

everything i got this year was a great find, i managed to complete the 25th series of figures. but what stood out this year was finding a variant clear wraith at retail.

well me getting shit online, i don't consider a great find. and buying online got me to stop wasteing time, money, gas, mileage, and effort driving to stores. and not to much was really wanted in 09 from the stores, except one thing, the walmart exclusives. so i say for me the best find was the walmart battle packs of recent.
as for online, it would be the 7 packs , another tanker told me about gabe on ebay, and i got in touch with him and delt with him directly to bypass the ebay bs. i got what i needed from him, when i thought i was gonna miss out on these.. and for a better price than any online store as well.

I gotta say it wasnt till the begining of 09 before I even got into the 25th stuff..so by summer time I was almost completely caught up.
My biggest finds?

I got my very own Flagg in 2009. I love it. I also completed my ARAH dream figure collection. It was a very good year.
