1986. I pretty much stopped in 85, but I did get a few select items in 86....I never really played with those, but I thought they were too cool not to get (Viper, Beachhead, Dial-Tone, Hawk, BAT, Low-Light, and Monkeywrench).

Regetfuly in 94... They did have some cool stuff, just not much of it... But I did however keep going in 97 when TRU had some out, buying GI Joe when I was in 11th grade was interesting. haha...
Girls never slowed me down they didnt even notice me anyway,cars did though! Every dime I had went to my Chevy truck! Still got it today...

Got the Sears pre-release Christmas '82, and promptly lost everything. My cousin collected and got me interested in '85. picked up all figures and most vehicles through '91. I bought all my 2 brothers figs, so I still have 350+ figs with most weapons and 90% of the vehicles (but no large vehicles). I have yet to buy my cousin's stuff and he has almost as much as I do. BTW I am 37! YO JOE!!!

I stopped collecting them in 1994 the year Hasbro stopped making them. That and the fact that I lost interest in them back then. To be sincere when I was a kid I was more of a MOTU, M.A.S.K. & TMNT fan than I was of joes. Sure I got a lot of the joe figures & vehicles because I liked them but I was more into the other toylines I mentioned before.
I was born in 1983 and because of that most of the joes I got are the ones from the later waves of 1988 through 1994. The only joe toys I used to have or still have from earlier waves are Barbecue, Crimson Guard, Zandar, Dr. Mindbender, Armadillo tank, Night Raven plane w/Strato Viper, Triple Threat Tank w/Sarge Slaughter, Hawk v2, Dusty, Croc Master, Lt. Falcon, Sneak Peek, Fast Draw, Law & Order, Dreadnok Air Skiff w/Zanzibar & the Battleforce 2000 members Knockdown & Dodger. I never got the most cooler joe toys as a boy because of that. (Sigh).

I sorta half-heartedly stopped in 1993-94. I bought the occasional new figure here and there but was pretty disappointed in most of the line at that point. I still tried to get vintage figures that I was missing through my best friend who worked at a vintage toy shop in high school so I never stopped cold collecting cold turkey. Sgt. Savage wasn't worth my time or money. When the 15th anniversary started showing up, I jumped right back into getting the New product, but still, I had been collecting the vintage stuff the whole time too. Until JOE vs. Cobra I went back to selective buying of the new stuff but once that Joe vs. Cobra started, I went right back into it full bore. Been goin full bore since!

94 when the line died, though by then I was getting picky as to what I bought because the Neon sucked!

I think '87 was the last year I got Joes, although I played with them for a while after. I was only ten after all. I remember getting Lt. Falcon, the Persuader, and a few others. My brother got a few more in '88 and Snake Eyes in '89. I still played with them, and the Joes I still had.
Please check out http://hmcsgreatadventure.com/ - it's a mix of sci-fi, humour and the friggin' Royal Canadian Navy, eh!
