Heads up! eBay seller ssushop, known for his collection of toy prototypes, is back with another round of over 50 G.I.Joe offerings from the early 00s! Let’s get right to it!

G.I.Joe vs Cobra

From 2002 comes a pair of G.I.Joe vs Cobra offerings. JvC (Joe vs Cobra) was a dramatic change in terms of sculpt design from the 1:18 G.I.Joe we had grown to love. Samples include Flint & Wild Bill. 

G.I.Joe vs Cobra: Spy Troops

Spy Troops, the follow up to Joe vs Cobra, brought us a new play pattern – One where both factions would come with gear that would allow them to assume the identifies of their enemies. Pretty sketch, but eh, what can you do, war is war. The Spy Troops assportment includes an Iron Grenadier, Recondo, Sgt. Hacker, Shipwreck and Wild Bill. 

Valor vs. Venom

In G.I.Joe Valor vs Venom, Cobra has altered the genetic structure of their army, producing platoons of ferocious creatures. This sub-set has the largest grouping of auctions, so rather than name them, check out the list below –
