Updated with a couple more figured out (and boy #14 is really embarassing, since my buddy said that's the line it was from)

 

 

 

Okay, I figure out a couple more, so here's the rundown of what's known & some discription for those that are still unknown...

 

1. Coastal Defender wheels (gotta love gijoepit.com)

2. MCC Rear Missile Launcher Base

3. black missile

4. support strut?

5. Vector Rear Landing

6. disc w/6 tabs around it

7. trigger/button/switch of some sort I think

8. shoulder piece from some kind of robot?

9. black missile (?) thicker portion has grooves on either side

10. red missile w/some little circles & ring designs on it

11. red missilie fat head

12. 2 pairs of missiles, opposite sides of vehicle it would seem

13. Jurassic Park Robert Muldoon Rocket Launcher

14. Super Go-bots Defendor launcher (sonofagun, I really didn't think it was Go-Bots related, d'oh)

15. Corps Pistol

16. Sectaurs Pinsor sword

17. Mortal Kombat Rayden (Movie) Spear

18. Mortal Kombat Johnny Cage Sword

19. Mortal Kombat Sub-Zero Sword

I'm wondering what 14 is myself. I had one as a kid but haven't a clue what it's from.

5 and 7 are familiar but I can't place them.

I don't think #12 is GI Joe. It looks like a group of bombs that came with a combat aircraft that had an attached flight controller that came out in the early 1990s. I had an F-16. The awesome thing about it was the it made jet noises that would change depending on the position of the controller. The controller also had a button that if you pushed the left side made machine gun sounds and on the right side made a firing missile sound.

 

I know they also made an F-15, but I'm pretty sure they made an F-18 and F-14. Very cool. They also came with a squadron patch.

#2 goes to the G.I. Joe Mobile command Center.

 

 

D'OH! I've got the bloody thing. Sitting right where I see it every freakin' day. Ai ya ya. @doh@

 

#9's definitely not a CG Imorrtal missile.

 

#8 kinda looks like it could be something's shoulder joint.

 

The pair of wheels are similar to some of the Joe vehicle wheels, but the tread notches are alternating instead of lined up parallel to each other. If that makes any sense.

 

There were some nice surprises in these junk lots too. The arrestor cable & both connectors for the Flagg, the command cab seat for the Defiant complex, some WHALE parts, etc. Hey, it's a start. @smilepunch@

 

Thanks.

#16 is from the sectaurs toy line.

barbecue17 - 2008-08-23 @ 3:41 am

#2 goes to the G.I. Joe Mobile command Center.

#13 Goes to Robert Muldoon from the jurassic Park movie line

#15 is a Corps Pistol

Pit Viper - 2008-08-23 @ 3:29 am

I think 11, 17, 18, and 19 may be Mortal Kombat weapons. Or possible Street Fighter Movie stuff. They used parts and weapons from G.I. Joe figures.

 

15 and 16 don't look to be G.I. Joe related at all.

 

9 may be a missile that goes to a Crimson Guard Immortal figure but it is difficult to tell.
