So I've finally gotten around to cleaning and displaying all of my Joe stuff from childhood.  I ordered some o-rings to fix half a dozen figures, mostly from 82-85.  Makes sense.  I also have four figures with broken t hooks - all vehicle drivers from 1988.  Methinks there were some quality control issues with that batch.  Apparently t hooks are hard to come by - people strip broken figures for them.  I gambled on a pack from a chinese reseller (sinodolls).  Sounds like they dumpster dive so it's probably old stuff, but if I get 4 good ones from the batch of 50 I'll be happy.

And I got a refund, no t-hooks, no explanation.  At least I got a refund I guess.

And then the next day the t-hooks show up in the mail!  So, free t-hooks?  It's a Real American Chinese Hero Miracle!
