Hi, I'm new to this site so just in case my questions are a little naive,I'm sorry ahead of time.

1.Where can you purchase these dolls?

2.They look like the old G.I.Joe's I used to play with,what scale would the old G.I.Joe's be?

3.Are they the same scale as these new dolls?

4.How much are they new dolls usually cost?
Thank you.

They are the same scale as the old GI Joe. The detail is much better with accurate uniforms and weapons systems. I have seen some with removable magazines and operating bolts and slides. Prices vary but the high end figures can run well over $100.00. You can pick up decent figures for between $30-60 I believe. There are a number of sites online and several websites dedicated to the hobby. The site here doesn't see a lot of traffic.

I can only echo what Russ has already said.

I don't know where to buy action figures in the Us, but these two shops are among the biggest in Europe.



As to traffic on this forum, the amount of views, on almost any topic, is quite high, and stand in stark contrast to the lack of actual posts.

I haven't bought any figures in 3-4 years. As Russ mentions the quality/details of figures, from DID, in particular, is mind blowing, but prices has gone up as well. In my neck, of the woods a high end figure can easily cost +200$

Let's us know, if you acquire any figures.
