A ADC GIJoe Surprise For You Guys


JayC

Recommended Posts

On the bright side, one thing I noticed is that none of these guys have goatees and all of the Cobra troops are wearing blue, black or red.  ;)

 

*Hasbro Rep observing fan forums noticed this, sends in order to put suspiciously styled facial hair on all Joes and Cobras*

 

And you know, it's funny that Recondo, the ONE character who could've used a goatee (if it HAD to be a goatee) doesn't have it. Well, me and my Sharpe marker'll fix that :lol:

One other thing: I was just looking on joesightings.com and the figs they have listed for Wave 5 are as follows:

 

Chief Torpedo vs. Dreadnok Burnout

Crosshair vs. Cobra CLAWS Commander

Recondo vs. Iron Grenadier

Sgt. Hacker vs. Scalpel

Tunnel Rat vs. Overkill

Glider w/ Barrel Roll

 

Now assuming that Barrel Roll isn't pictured on this site since he comes with a vehicle, that gives us 10 figures to match with the pics. I'm also assuming that the exclusive Frostbite/Wet-Suit hybrid isn't part of the above list, so that gives us 9 different pics of Wave 5 figs to match with 10 names. Did that make sense? Basically what I'm saying is, one of the above mentioned figures isn't in the pictures we've seen. There are also 5 Cobras in the pictures, so I think we have seen all of the Cobra troops slated for Wave 5, but we're still missing one of the Joes.

 

Here's what I think:

 

Chief Torpedo:

http://66.221.124.161/g/?mode=view&album=G...ize=500&start=9

 

Burnout: http://66.221.124.161/g/?mode=view&album=G...ize=500&start=0

 

Cobra CLAWS Commander: http://66.221.124.161/g/?mode=view&album=G...ize=500&start=9

 

Iron Grenadier: http://66.221.124.161/g/?mode=view&album=G...ize=500&start=9

 

Sgt. Hacker: http://66.221.124.161/g/?mode=view&album=G...ize=500&start=0

 

Scalpel: http://66.221.124.161/g/?mode=view&album=G...ize=500&start=9

 

Overkill: http://66.221.124.161/g/?mode=view&album=G...ize=500&start=0

 

Now, this leaves three Joes unnamed. I would like to think this is Recondo: http://66.221.124.161/g/?mode=view&album=G...ize=500&start=0 ...

 

and this is Crosshair: http://66.221.124.161/g/?mode=view&album=G...ize=500&start=0 ...

 

and that we haven't seen Tunnel Rat yet.

 

Hopefully I'm right, because if what I presume to be Recondo is actually Tunnel Rat, and what I presume to be Crosshair is actually Recondo, and we haven't seen Crosshair yet, I'm gonna be very dissappointed.

My opinion on the who's who of these waves:

 

Chief Torpedo:

http://66.221.124.161/g/?mode=view&album=G...ize=500&start=9

WHY: His chest armor has several tubes and what appears to be a breathing unit. Plus, something inside me says that Hasbro has finally given a SEAL something to do outside of play in the water.

 

Overkill: http://66.221.124.161/g/?mode=view&album=G...ize=500&start=0

WHY: Extremely pale skin (Even for Hasbro) pure green eyes, and detachable arms. mark my words, that scarf will be removable and he'll have a robo-mouth guard.

 

Iron Grenadier Commander: http://66.221.124.161/g/?mode=view&album=G...ize=500&start=9

SHY: Regal military officer's uniform is befitting of the IG forces. CLAWS Commander will probably be a slight remold of the CLAWS itself.

 

Iron Grenadier: http://66.221.124.161/g/?mode=view&album=G...ize=500&start=9

WHY: Duh.

 

Sgt. Hacker: http://66.221.124.161/g/?mode=view&album=G...ize=500&start=0

WHY: Meh.

 

Scalpel: http://66.221.124.161/g/?mode=view&album=G...ize=500&start=9

WHY: Gah.

 

Crosshairs: http://66.221.124.161/g/?mode=view&album=G...ize=500&start=0 ...

WHY: Just seems right. Looks like a guy who would be hiding in the swamp wating for a Cobra supply convoy to go by and pick off the STUN drivers and reroute the Cobra superweapon to Joe HQ.

 

Recondo: http://66.221.124.161/g/?mode=view&album=G...ize=500&start=0 ...

WHY: BECAUSE HASBRO SAID SO.

 

Tunnel Rat: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...item=1771449852

WHY: He looks like Tunnel Rat with some undercover gear. If this isn't Tunnel Rat, I'll be a saaad Panda.

 

Burnout: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...item=1771448488

WHY: I don't know. He's too filthy and grunge looking to be Cobra or Joe. If not for the scratches all over the shield, that would be the perfect accesory to future Alley Vipers... It might actually protect them, as opposed to those tiny do-nothings Cobra gives them...

And as for a Cobra medic(!); Scapel? Hm... it adds a new dimension to Cobra as a terrorist organization. I didn't think Cobra cared enough for their kind to keep them alive. I thought the soldiers were genetically engineered, highly trained terror troops/cannon fodder totally and blindly devoted to the Cobra cause of world domination; ready to sacrifice themselves for Cobra Commander and the "greater good". Interesting! :)-

 

 

Look at it as Cobra being frugal. It's not that Cobra really gives two craps and a hawked loogy about the well-being of their soldiers. It probably costs MORE to handle even the crudest of burials (Like what Dr Venom got in an issue of the GOOD Marvel GI Joe comic.) and to train/create/equip a new soldier to take the dead ones place than it takes to patch them up.

 

 

ANd as for Recondo, I really have no problem with his new look. People DO voluntarily change their looks. As for him toting an anti armor weapon, GI Joe was never about REALITY from day one. Unless of course you can point me at a terrorists organization led by a guy whose face you never see, supplied with weapons from a guy who wears a flexible steel mask and has legions of androids, genetically modified soldiers and antisocial Australians that have somehow escaped my notice. AND The Govt must be doing an incredible job keeping all their jet pack soldiers, ninjas, astronauts, and laser wielding troopers inder wraps.

 

Just relax. If reality was all that and a side order of Haggis, we wouldnt have toys in the FIRST place.

Don't appologise Recondo.....I feel your pain. The new Recondo actually is not a bad figure but it's not Recondo.

 

 

If I was you just ignore the name an call him Clutch :D

Like I said before, this looks more like an Alley Viper remake. If it is Tunnel Rat, I'm gonna be extremely dissapointed in the choice of accessories for him. Why would Tunnel Rat want a helmet, armor, or a shield? If this is Tunnel Rat, I'm no longer defending Hasbro as far as JVC goes. :-? What's next, Low-Light with swords and an RPG? :-?

You know what? You're right. BUT, did you ever see Wet-Suit wearing a paratroopers outfit, Snake Eyes in artic gear, or Iceberg in desert camo? I would have to say that you haven't, and if you did, you would be complaining louder than the rest of us. Don't try to make it acceptable for Recondo to look like this:

especially when you've been one of the biggest trolls on these boards when it comes to pro-JVC threads.

That's what I thought as well....he's the Iron Grenadier Commander

 

Well at least that's who I'll be making him

Has there been any mention of an Iron Grenadier Commander in Wave 5 yet? The reason why I said this is probably the Cobra CLAWS Commander is because of the way the mouth piece looks. It's exactly the same as that of the Cobra CLAWS. Actually, take the helmet off of him, and you have the Cobra CLAWS head. ;)

Huh... You're right, Joe! That does look an awful lot like the CLAWS mouthguard! However, I would be willing to chalk it up to coincidence.

 

Hasbro has recently had a major trend of making an officer grade for every trooper brand, so an IG commander is very likely. There hasn't been any mention of an IG Commander, but I have no clue of who that guy with the huge Cobra flak vest and shin guards is, so it could be there are some yet-to-be announced figures and some excluded ones.

 

Although, I'll eat my words in two or three months when I get that red Cobra dude and it says CLAWS Commander under him :x

I don't want anyone to tear of my head and sip the sweet red juices here, but uh... Is Recondo really that bad a figure, or representation of the character? He can shave and modernize, can't he? Maybe the poor guy got tired of slogging through jungles and focused on a new military specialty?

 

Personally, I love the Recondo figure. He's an all-around perfect GI Joe toy. I'll be happy to see him standing in a battle formation with JvC Flint, Duke V.2, Snake Eyes V.2, Scarlett and NumChuks against the legions of Neo Vipers and Snow Serpents I'll have :D

 

Tom

Sadly awaiting ADC's own Recondo to corner him in an alley.

Hey. Ive been TRYING to get along better the past week. And I resent that troll remark. Did you even SEE my original post in this thread? Despite the usual issues, I *LIKED* the designs of this wave.

Hm. If you're right (IF) about Tunnel Rat and his questionable accesories, that raises another question - Who do those belong to? In any case, they're pretty cool, particularly the helmet and shield.

 

I'm hoping some of the prototype accesories are reliable. The gear being sold with Recondo on EBAY is one of the most interesting items I've seen with a JvC toy...

hey tom-1

 

any thoughts that the accessories for the tunnel rat and the burnout could be switched on the ebay auction?

 

Firstly, you may call me Tom, Marty. For it is my name. :)-

 

As for the accesories, I think Burnout is equipped fairly well. He looks like a Dreadnok who thinks ahead and says to himself "If my buddies and I get into a city-wide riot and the police come down on us, will I be prepared?" He's one clver Dreadnok to be carrying around a shield, helmet, armor and a lethal projectile weapon (Unlike the cinderblock hammers, buzzsaws and jaws-of-life Dreadnoks used to carry)

 

Tunnel Rat... Hm. As useful Straight Edges info is, it's not direct from Hasbro. I wouldn't be surprised if that armor stuff DOES come with Tunnel Rat... We'll just have to wait and see.

 

Personally, my "accesory picks" for Tunnel Rat would be the rifle he's got in the prototype pic (the smaller one) his explosives pouch, a small "L" light and a "waterproof" backpack. That would be perfect...

 

 

Which means he will have two scimitars, a telephone and Crystal Ball's shield.

im sure you will be.

 

 

as for the rest, im right there w/ straight edge, its the same ideas i got from the pics. still not sure on the grey armored cobra.

 

as for tunnel rat, i doubt thats his accessories (praying that they are not) but the helmet to me would make a great scrap-iron, but thats just me.

I remember reading an interview with Daryll DePriest from hasbro and he said the Tunnel Rat was going to be a big suprise. It looks like he just has accessories to make him look like a cobra. Maybe to be undercover or just to say its another character or maybe he secretly joined cobra.

 

Heres my thoughts on whos who

 

1. That has gotta be Tunnel Rat from the e-bay pic, it matches the pic on gijoe.com

2. I think the other guy on the e-bay pic is Burn Out he looks like a Dreadnok

3. The guy with the ball cap is Recondo, he matches the giloe.com version

4. The red Cobra guy, CLAWS Commander, he looks like a leader and the helmet looks like the other CLAWS helmets

5. The black Cobra guy, Iron Grenedier, if you go by the comic it looks like they are members of Cobra so the Cobra simbols would make sense

6. The Cobra with the pizza cutter on the arm, Scalpal

7. The guy with the breathing device chestplate, Torpedo

8. The guy with the arm things, Hacker, accesories look like somekind of virtual reality gear

9. The guy with fisherman hat, Crosshair

10. The grey Cobra, no clue

The on;y one not accounted for is Barrel Roll

 

I think they all look great, some of the best so far.

6. The Cobra with the pizza cutter on the arm, Scalpal

 

LMAO I never thought of it that way!

 

Viper: Ugh! Aren't you even gonna clean the blade off before using it on me, doc?

 

Scalpel: Cool it, guy. That's just sauce.

I thought claws commander would be the claws in wave 4 with dart. And the red cobra totatly looks like a crimson gaurdsmen so that is what he will be for me.

 

Hacker is probably the one with the arm gear but i kinda wish that was a cobra trooper so i could army build cause it so cool looking.

 

This is some of the best and worst of jvc. ANd cobra has definatly gone very futuristic.
