i stopped when Battleforce 2000 and python patrol started douching up the line.
my friends had'em, and i refused to believe that they were officially part of the line.
for years I'd always check out the toy section when i was out, and look at them...and if i spotted something stupid *which was often* i'd just shake my head.
I remember seeing a neon green figure that came with a spinning top toy, and muttered something along the lines of "that aint firefly."
I also remember i guess it was 91, 92 maybe, that a major department store here in Canada was going out of business and they were having a huge sale, my mother for some reason started buying me tons of joe's. they were marked down 75% and my mom was bringing me garbage bags full of'em.
that was pretty fun.
Rhino DVD sets, boglins, joes transformers and Resident evil all in my most randomest bst thread on the tank.

'93 - I was in 7th grade. I traded my friend for comic books since I was moving to TX and comic books were easier to pack than a bunch of GI Joes. Still kicking myself for getting rid of them.

Probably in '88-89 , although I continued to play with them for a few more years, I guess I moved on to other things. Thought I was to old for toys, little did I know when I got older I would be wishing to be a child again. Now I'm buying back my childhood and reliving it through my own seeds.

I slacked of in 1989 because I started collecting Batman and other superhero figures. I bought my last Joe in 1990. After that they just got stupid.
I kept collecting toys however until 1993 when I was 18. After graduating high school I decided to sell/give away my whole collection... it was a Manhood/Church thing.
Funny thing is about three years later I started collecting again. and totally regretted getting rid of all my stuff. I may never get it all back.

I stopped collecting figs after I bought issue 155. '94?
Reason: I was engaged and needed to stop spending money. Now I have a son and a little more money, so in 2003 we started collecting together. He gets the Joes, I get the Cobras.
