I lost my whole collection in a move, and gave up.
Until I saw the 25th figures.

Somewhere in 1997 when the 15th Anniversery joes came out and i was stationed in Fort Hood the first time lol. I was collecting Hotwheels at the same time and still am. Now its both for me .

Probably 92-93. One of the last figures I remember getting was that ridiculous Gung-Ho with the play-doh armor. All my old joes are gone now... ah, memories. But my new army is better, faster, stronger!

1989. That was the year that we moved. My cousin helped us pack and somehow my boxes of Joes and Transformes were left off the truck. At that point I just gave up until the 25th line came around.

1988. I still have a lot of my stuff from then, but the Iron Grenadiers were the last Joes I bought until this year when I discovered the 25th line.

I guess '93. I would pick up a figure here or there but had pretty much stopped collecting by High School. The very last figure I got was the Bazooka that came out in '93 and I hadn't picked up a figure for about a year or so before that.

I was 14-15 years old when I stopped looking at joes at all. When they started coming out with the eco warriors and street fighters and stuff like that.
The neo colored joes were a really big red flag to stop buying them too. Hasbro had just whipped this horse till it died and had flies swarming all the hell over it.
The comics started sucking too with the ninja farce; ie neo scarlett.
Hockey mask snake eyes was also a big tip off that Joe had reached its ultimate conclusion. Things were just unrealistic.
My interests started to wain also because of photography in High School. Girls obviously.
Funny how we digress back to the things we enjoyed in grade school however.

1985 was my last year. I remember getting the Dreadnoks, twins and most of the joes. But I got out before the Flagg was released
