I picked this guy up the other day at a 2nd hand store in my area. They normally don't have toys or anything. It's more of an antique mall than anything, furniture and that sort of thing.
I used to have this when I was a youth. I was pretty into it. As I recall what would happen is that The Joes and Cobra would fight over it and pass control of it back and forth all the time. I didn't have a lot of vehicles, mostly just action figures so every vehicle was under constant ownership conflict.
I guess both my Joes and Cobras were underfunded and just holding on while hoping that the enemy fell first, from starvation.
