With all of the choices of G.I. Joe websites out there, why should you join the COIL?  Sure, there are bigger sites, but we are not designed to compete with them. Sites like GeneralsJoes, YoJoe, JoeBattlelines, and HissTank, do what they do very well and we often share information and news with those sites, but our goal is to remain small, friendly, intimate, and LOCAL. We are NOT a news site (although we do break some news from time to time), but we are a site where people come to discuss the hobby and how it affects us in the heartland.   It is the small site experience where the COIL gives you a superior experience versus other regional Midwest websites. There are smaller sites which claim to represent a state or region, but quite simply, the COIL does it better. Meet your fellow collectors in our chat. Keep up to date with our RSS, Twitter, and Facebook feeds. Just like G.I. Joe, the COIL is THERE!   No other regional site has been the focus of breaking news as the COIL has been over the past two years. With content that is updated daily; an interface that is crisp, clean, and bright; with members who are knowledgeable, friendly, open, and recognized community leaders; following a solid, proven plan for growth and and our continued stance on improving your local networking experience, HANDS DOWN, no group in the Midwest beats The COIL.
