great, an army builder in a weird paint scheme that you can only get one of... Nano-Bat kind of sucks and this is coming from a guy who bought 6 of the internet exclusive Bat Packs a few years back.

Blah.

Yeah...I don't see this line going anywhere. Is there anyone out there who's excited about it?

I would buy this figure just to have one but I'm not that excited by this at all.

Actually, Hisstank is going crazy over it (but yeah, it's hideous ;) )

Blah, not at all what I like. Its just a redeco with crazy clear parts, for 25.00....I mean I can cast those parts and make that in my garage. So far this is 1 for 1 to me, I like the Quarrel and will get that but this bat is pure club lazziness. They will really need to blow my socks off to get me to subscribe to this. Now if they announce some must haves then I might be game, but it wll take a Billy, Zandar or Road Pig to get my blood pumping for this. Heck even a Crystal Ball would have been better, but a redeco army builder is a big pass to me.

it's not a bad figure... but it's not something I would ever pay 25 for.

if they released it in the regular series, I wouldn't be in a hurry to find it at 8 bucks

I think the figure actually looks kinda cool for a modern B.A.T.. I like it better than the recently released jungle B.A.T., but as other point out it wouldn't be one I would want to pay that much for.

Who else got the feeling all 12 figures are going to be lame repaint with no new parts representing new or international character and the secret 13th figure they won't reveal will be a a previously unreleased in 25th style classic character figure with new parts.
It's either that or they want us to believe that so we subscribe and we get a 13th lame figure. Either way I fell the fandom is going to be angry.

what kills me is that if your going to charge so much for figures then let the people who buy them decide who is going to be made. i'd like to buy a nanobat cause it looks cool but at 25 bucks i have a few figures that are a must like billy or zandar.

I was all set to buy into the subscription but at $25 a figure forget about it. That's ridiculous.

well so far both are a pass and the price kills it for me also. i mean 1 you have to buy all the figs you cant just pick and chose. then they put army builders in a sub line when it should be for single figs we wont get from hasbro. also there is no other info about this like who will be in the line up and the real price . the down side is you have to pay to be a member then on top of that you have to pay for all 13 of them upfront. thats alot to ask from us and to just pay with only being shown 2 figs and no list.

I don't know... I'm excited about Quarrel. This, not so much.

We need to see more pics of upcoming figures or at least some kind of list. I understand they're trying to copy the MOTUC method but I have a lot more faith in 4H designs...

These new Joes are so flimsy. I can't see myself paying good money on them.

At a time of deep economic instability, charging club members an extra 25 per fig seems outrageous especially when they're not that spectacular. Repaints and rehashes don't really merit that great of want for me. I even passed on quite a few figs of the POC line as it seems like every new season we get the same old 5 guys rehashed to death, but I do understand with every wave they want to bring newer and younger generations into the fold. So there in lies the problem with making us older collectors happy while trying to please the Tot set/Bag crowd. Not to hate on other toy lines but why does it seem like the Joes don't get that much love when it comes to shelf space and marketability. Maybe they could use more toy commercials, flag points, mail in offers, more weekend sales, updated or newer playsets, I was in-like with the PITT but would love a new Terror-drome. There are quite a few Movie and Toy lines that are dying on the shelves, ex. Pirates, rehashed Star wars, same ole Transformers in different packaging, damn Hampster toyz?(the marketing behind Zhu had to have been penned by Satan himself, really how does one make Hampsters cool?....leave Tom Cruise alone haha) Iron man & Cap A, I've seen a million of them but none of their adversaries, the list could go on and on, & the new Thundercats look awesome but Bandai kinda scares me, and the fact that they're almost 20 bux a fig. This is our hard earned money and I do love buying my lil plastic men and robots like the next collector but do we have to buy everything that comes out no, and that's where I make my stand if its not cool I just have to walk away, like the poker table....

That's why I'm sticking to MOTUC these days. At least I know what I'm getting from Mattel, and most of their stuff has been pretty great, and stuff we haven't seen in 20+ years, or stuff we have never seen at all.

GI Joe just seems to keep going stale. I've pretty much just decided to stick with my vintage Joe collection...and just buy the occasional figure that grabs my interest.

This sub deal makes the Voltron sub more appealing.
