One of my figures from the late 80s I'm surprise, survived from years of playing is IG Destro aka Destro v2. I lost the sword, and the Despoiler broke, but Destro has no broken crotch like my Battle armor CC. one of the leg joints is a bit loose tho.
My Night Viper survived wear and tear altho I had to replace the head and visor w/ the playskool version and paint the thing that connects to the visor green.
One of my BAT v2 the chest hologram is still in tact.

I was just thinking about this earlier today! Looking at most of my collection (well, what's left of it anyway), it's in great shape for being 20+ years old. The decals are still clean, no parts are broken...all in all good stuff!

I started collecting before I got the boxes of my joes I palyed with as a kid back from a friends house, I was all "OH BOY THIS WILL MAKE MY COLLECTION ROCK" then I was looking through the stuff, and it was all trashed, we used to make actual graveyards and stuff for them in the dirt, so they were all broke, missing parts, and dirty :(

the o-ring on my 1983 CC finally rotted but that was an easy fix.
When I'm through, they'll scrape you off the wall with a squeegee!

I kept about 3/4 of them though cause they are still pretty sweet.

one of mine has to be my original mercer. and stalker.
unfortunately poor stalker suffered from o-ring snap and he had gotten his torso glued together but his paints are still good
mercer on the other hand has paint wear on his hair but part from that has all thumbs and crotch(that sounded terrible to type lol)
Feedback for me

All of my vintage line looks great still. I have all of it dispalyed on shelves and no problems except a busted o-ring sometimes.
The time has come for the Cobra to rise up and reveal himself. You will call me... Commander!

I wish I had kept better care of my old Joes. What few pieces I've been able to find has been missing everything that was removable. However, nothing compares to the day I saw my neighbor outside shooting his Joes with his pellet gun. Even as a kid I was appalled!
