You gotta love those Target exclusives. I hope they do well so that we get some more... like a Mauler, Night Raven, Tomahawk and others.

A lot of great stuff. I'm hoping that the Senior Air Officers Ace comes with a helmet. I like the Deep Six (well, both of them but I'm speaking of the 3 pack). And I too will put down $50 to get that Ultimate Battle Pack in November. Too much stuff that I want!

Excuse me... I have to clear off some shelf space!

Its cool that Walmart is going to carry the 12 inch origional Joes again

I wish they would come back out with Bulletman : The Human Bullet

I had him as a kid and he was my favorite toy at the time before Star Wars and action figures

For those who don't know here is Bulletman

This the news that excites me the most, and the claimed price point just seals the deal.
$10 for a 12" Joe............just cannot go wrong with that!! AT figures WITH gear--even better!!!

@loll@

I think it would be funny to over dub that commercial with Bullet Man, and have him moaning on his way down the rope (towards the logs) "awwww..c'mon guys! Why do i ALWAYS have to wear the STUPID Bullet head HELMET!"

Then cut to the AT hospital with a room full of PAST Bullet Man helmet wearers, being treated for bumps, bruises, contusions, broken bones and CONCUSSIONS! @loll@

Well, while NOTHING is ever for certain, and it's almost ALWAYS a bad idea to assume anything (even if you're somebody who thinks they know everything) I'd dare make the uneducated, unknowing "assumption" that some of these figures were hastily slapped together, repainted or minorly modified, just for the con, as prototype figures? There's a few of them that look pretty funky, unpainted and such, so (hopefully) the blue neck on CC is just that, because it does look funky. ^_^

I think you may be right. I like how the figure is in dark blue too. I've always wanted a dark blue battle helmet CC.

The CC seems a wash to me, but I LOVE the IG Destro in v1 colors they have in the red HISS tank. Though I am curious what happened to the desert Flint from the Ultimate Battle pack. The early pics Hisstank got had a tan Flint with black highlights being a part of the set, but the TNI and Yojoe images have him missing.

I'm wondering if he got pulled from the set, is getting reworked (the Joe figures are mostly green except for Steeler and Flint, but Steeler was already done in green, so he is understandable), or if he just got pulled out of the display case for some other reason.

Well, It would fit if we got a BET with Roadblock and Cobra commander, Lifeline and Iceberg along with CObra commander turned into a snake. See, That might work. Or even through in a Big Lob! @loll@

I'm curious as to how three figures are going to retail for 6.99. Especially when the singles are going for more than that in some areas.

Which leads me to wonder more about the reliability of other suggested prices. @hmmm@

Are those prices correct? How can the TRU exclusive officer 3 packs retail for $6.99? Also, what about the TRU 5-packs for $19.99. Is that right? I remember the last 5-packs were $24.99.

Wow!! The Mobat and the Rattler. I wonder what the differences are between these and the originals. Maybe I should sell my original Rattler soon.
