1987 was the last year for me.I had almost every vehicle and fig from 82 thru 87 though.I was 12 in 1987 so like everyone else I got interested in Girls,sports,hunting(my first shotgun that year)and other things.My dad packed all my old toys(including the FLAGG)up in the attic.In 1994 when I left for the military he cleaned out the attic and Goodwilled all my toys ARGGGGGGGG!!!TONS of joes,Transformers,Star Wars,and M.A.S.K. stuff.I mean I had it all.My parents got divorced when I was 2 and they both re-married so I had two Christmas's EVERY year!! I had alot of toys. He never even asked me if I might still want them,he just assumed I did not.......I WAS 19 after all.I took really good care of my toys too.Oh well thanks to the 25th line and Encore(transformers)I am getting to start over I guess.I am going to go cry now thinking about all the stuff pop just gave away.

I think I stopped in 89' I was 14 then and I remember thinking wow I'm getting a little old to be collecting joes...the last figure I got was the v3 snake eyes...then in 93' I was working at TRU for xmas and I picked up the ninja force snake eyes (still boxed to this day) and that was pretty much it till the 25th line came out. Now I'm 33 and so happy to be collecting them again and no matter how lame some of my friends think I am...haha

I had slowed down pretty good by 1986, only getting a handful of figures and none of the vehicles from that year. I picked up a few figures in 1987 and that was about it for me.

Summer 1985. Only bought half that years wave and then I was done. I was about to turn 13 and Motley Crue, Ratt and Twisted Sister won the battle that year. Had all my Joes until about 1989 when I just gave them away like a dumb ass.

I stopped mid 90's. I guess to the end when they started making the Aliens. Only managed to get 1. But stop having fun with Joes probably in 90 or 91. Never went back until the 25th.
Loyal fan since 1982.

I stopped collecting right after they came out with the Eco Patrol. Once the Joes gave up on camouflage in favor of special opps in neon colors, I stop taking the line so seriously. I did however buy a couple random sound attack figures, then completely stopped.

I started declining in 1987 and stopped alltogether after 1988. I never read the comics, so it was mostly the cartoons for me. The movie was a big dissapointment and I started getting into baseball cards and Starcom stuff after that.
Now that I've been collecting again and replacing what I had back in the day it's been a process that has taken 4 times longer than I was ever interested in joes during the 1980's.

The year the Twins came out(1985 maybe), as they were the last figures I bought. My uncle said I was "too old" to be still be buying toys(I was 13).
