Y'know, I would be surprised if we did not get a Terrordrome during this Joe cycle. They are giving big hints here and there, the movie will allow the opportunity to get out there, and Hasbro has been more daring as of late in putting out larger fan desired vehicles for its Star Wars line (BMF, AT-TE). I mean, c'mon, they are practically teasing us with that announcement of the Firebat would be able to fit. Its on their agenda, I just know it.

Most of this 'news' is stuff we already knew... but all the same, at least Hasbro is trying to keep up the flow of information.

I do hope that Duke isn't indicative of Hasbro's concept of 'fixed' Duke arms.

And this isn't normally something I pick on, but there are some atrocious spelling errors in this news item. The 'Flaff'? How about those 'vehicels', eh?

Although if 'Torpedoe' really can ride on the bottom of the SHARC, that means it's been remolded. Interesting... you'd think Hasbro would just reuse the same mold they had on the shelves a few months ago. On one hand, I applaud them for updating it to be compatible with the figures, but on the other hand, this just seems to be another example of 'too many changes'- if they hadn't monkeyed with the backs of the figures, this wouldn't be something they needed to change to begin with.

Your a moron dude. They are typing these things live in the dark at these comic panels trying to bring someone like you sitting on your ass the information that is released as soon as possible and all you can do it just #$#@# and complain about some typos.

Hi, it's 2008. I have spellcheck. How 'bout you?

These are not simple fan threads, they are news items posted on TNI/ENI. For someone to take the news on this site seriously, it helps to make it look professional. At worst, the people who are reporting are acting as amateur journalists, and I'm attempting to make a point about professionalism. If I were in their place with so many people reading the news I posted, and no one pointed out glaring mistakes like the ones I noted, I'd be ticked when I finally noticed them. I'd wonder just how many people were paying attention.

And quite frankly, your claim that all I did was complain about typos is far from accurate, as is your assumption that I'm stupid, ungrateful, and lazy. I'm left wondering what exactly your problem is when that's the first assumption you jump to. I made no assumptions about WHY the typos existed, but there is a certain level of quality that Jay and his crew have led me to expect in the news they provide. I was surprised not to see it, so I said so. How they respond and what they do as a result is up to them. Again, I said nothing that I wouldn't want said to me, were I in their semi-professional shoes.

As a side note, I'll retract my comment about the TF Duke arms. The pics I was looking at seemed to still have that ridiculous mid-forearm swivel... which it appears he does not. I'm ecstatic about this figure now. I honestly hope they give us a 'classic colors' Duke with these new arms, even though we've had several classic Duke figures. I know I'd happily spend the money for it.

I actually wouldn't want a terrordrome but a flagg, or defiant? yeah. I have a terrordrome (well a husk of one anyways) and it isn't ath great for display, and for some reason after i read about them in the comic, i liked them even less. I'd love to see something new and smaller for cobra. I'd be happy with just rooms that connect together. That would be best.
