G.I. Joe Items Up For Auction:
It’s only fitting that on Veterans Day, we give thanks to those that serve and those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice for freedom. 3DJoes stopped by to share word of a very special set of auctions that he is currently hosting in honor & memory of Master Sergeant Josh Wheeler.
Master Sergeant Joshua Wheeler was a United States Army Special Forces Operational Detachment-Delta (aka Delta Force) Master Sergeant. A veteran of 14 deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, Wheeler earned four Bronze Stars with the letter V (awarded for valor in combat) and seven Bronze Stars (awarded for heroic or meritorious service in a combat zones). He was posthumously awarded the Purple Heart.
He served in the single most elite unit the U.S. has to offer, and he truly is one of the best of the best. His sacrifices are endless and certainly unfathomable to most. Not only was he a exemplary Soldier but also a husband, a father of four, and a local to our hometown of Southern Pines.
The loss hits close to home for 3DJoes, as this fine gentleman was a part of the community in which 3DJoes’ family still resides. A fund raiser is currently being co-ordinated and that’s where 3DJoes, and by extension you, come in to play. 3DJoes is offering 2 auctions with 100% of the proceeds going to benefit Master Sergeant Josh Wheeler’s family. Keep reading for a description of the auctions and to see how else you can help. We here at HissTank.com thank Master Sergeant Josh Wheeler and his family for the profound sacrifice they’ve made to our Country. [Read more…]

To those that have been following this auction, there’s good news to share! The Seller has been in touch with 3DJoes and realized the error in the listing description. It has since been updated to reflect accurate information.
Thanks go to the seller for doing the right thing and again to 3DJoes for the initial warning!
Our good friend 3DJoes stopped by to warn us of a fraudulent listing currently found on eBay. The listing is for a 1982 Sears Exclusive G.I.Joe Cobra Missile Command Headquarters. Since many are looking at vintage pieces now that the modern era line is slowing down, we wanted to make sure you’re aware of this so that you don’t end up getting burned. Here’s the scoop from 3DJ –
———-Hey Joe Bros. Please beware of this fraudulent item on eBay. They copied and pasted the description from my previous auction. G I Joe Cobra Missile Command Headquarters 1982 Sears Exclusive Figures Mint | eBay I have written the seller and asked them to change the description to more accurately reflect the item they are selling. I will report it to eBay tomorrow it it is not updated. Here’s where their set falls short of the description:
– figures aren’t graded
– Cobra Commander isn’t the very first, very rare, “Mickey Mouse” version with the original logo, instead its a swivel arm 1983 figure
– no blueprint
– no sliding bottom AFA case
They are vastly overselling their item by using my description. Finally they are not selling their item to help fund 3DJoes. I don’t know them from Adam.
