I like BLADES too... but they are still doing Tripwire with the quilted pattern instead of the smooth one?

it seems like the club didn't put much into the exclusives this year.

The figures are all pretty simple redecos, and they are only doing 4 different figures.

and then the souvenirs are really simple.

I like the Fang, but how does that compare to past exclusives such as the Warthog, Stun, or Hydrofoil?

man for me the souvenirs are by FAR the best thing the Club has ever done, hate the CST and think its an epic PHAIL but the argen 7 and action force figures rock. THIS IS EXACTLY what the con should be doing heck hasbro too for that matter.

I dont mind repaints if they are like this! Its been a dream of mine to have these guys

Man it seems like no many people liked the CST but a lot of people are loving the Argen 7 and Action force guys/ Hope the club takes note of this for the future!

I like the international dudes because they are different, but I won't pay a bundle for them... and I know they are going to be expensive.

I won't be going for the souvenirs either. The Fangs are cool, I wouldn't mind owning them, but I don't want to pay a ton.

The crimson command copter is not cool at all! Is it the top piece of the Rhino vehicle or something? lame

I have merged two threads, that's why all the posts are redundant so far. Sorry for the confusion

oh the crismon stuff does suck I agree with you on that , but for the international stuff thats stuff I been dreaming of having for a long time but the originals go for ridiculous prices and usually they are in bad shape too LOL so as expensive as these may be to get they will probally ( god I hope so ) be cheaper than the originals and be of better quality too!

I know an email was sent out saying there was only 85 CST sets left to sell at the show or at the club if they don't sell out...

I take it no figures come with the Crimson Command Copter?

Crap inna hat that's on my head. I'd give organs and certain firstborn males for the 4 Argentina figures.

I just finished my custom team of Action Force figures (Gaucho, Quarrel, Blades, Hunter and Lt Stone), and I've got Glenda/Scarlett and my custom Claymore waiting for these 4 guys. I'd rather official releases than customs, tho...

To e-bay!

not interested in any of them, and that's great for me because i'm poor.
Did star duster that was released do that well? i've been trying to trade/sale mine off for awhile with zero interest.

All the stuff looks nice and now I'm trying to figure out how I can sneak off the KC for the day (since I only live a couple hours away). I do think it's strange they went with that Baroness instead of the one that was in the third Cobra box set. I also like the fact that the Vipers have the fixed arms, the helmet and goggles were never that big a deal to me, but have the fixed arm on these is a nice touch.

There's an auction on e-bay right now offering the 3-pack for 100 bucks... pretty low mark-up all things considered. I took a chance on it, here's to hoping I dont get stiffed.

These are excellent exclusives.

There is a fanbase for them but they aren't really "necessary" for a collection. I mean they coulda done Hardball, Downtown and Keel Haul or something and THAT woulda sucked.

oh man I was lucky enough for a friend of mine to pick me up one of ALL the international guys! both argen 7 and Action Force sets !YES!!

BIG BIG BIG THANK YOU to the collectors club for making these, I have given you guys a lot of heckle and I still think you screwed up by making the CST. BUT this does show that you guys do listen to the fans at least part of the time!

BIG THANK YOU

THE BAD thing is I bid on one set of the 3 pack international commandoes set ( Argen 7 guys ) on ebay for 90 dollars literally minutes before I knew my friend had picked me up some

so if anyone cant find it cheaper on ebay ( they are going for about 130-150 dollars right now ) then contact me Ill be happy to sell the set I bought for the same price plus shipping


Heres hoping the club does a RED SHADOW set next year!
