We're Getting Sci-Fi !?!

Recommended Posts

I don't know how many of you noticed this:

This picture just made my day. After looking over all of the disappointing (for the most part) Toy Fair images, this was freakin' awesome to see. Sci-Fi and Low-Light were the two figures I wanted most since the 25th line launched, and now my dreams are finally reality. :P @lol@

 

I love the extra head with the visor closed all the way.

 

Stalker and SS look nice too:

SS is amazing, on par with the poc commando se. Sci-fi is a little too bright for me, but i do dig the full visor'd helmet. Stalker, while cool, features the new head i don't like, and my previous stalker was pretty good, not sure i'll bite, but these are a long way away.

I hope so.. I think that Sci-Fi is the best figure shown today.

 

 

Stormy is really nice too

Definately a winner! That SS looks to be the "ultimate" version of the character the way the recent SE was the "ultimate" version of him. Hope the mask comes off. Stalker looks good too. These three are on my "get" list!

those are nice and after that SS they need to be done with Se and SS they cant do any better but from what i have seen they never will be done. all they are now is a waste of space.

I to think Sci Fi is the best we have seen yet! I LOVE it! He was a fav of mine as a kid. It was actually the bright green that made me love him as a kid @loll@ Anyway really digging a lot of what I have seen!

I love all of the above figures, some others are kinda blah, but I do like some of the new concepts. The Hazard viper is a cool looking repaint!

Sci-Fi has always been one of my favorite characters, and he's the only neon wearing soldier in my Joe army.

I thought if they ever did a 25th-style Sci-Fi, they'd tone down the neon a bit. I'm glad they didn't - he looks great!

Won't happen.

 

Fortunately you don't have to buy. I know I am done, done, DONE with Snake Eyes. If I need a cool one I'll dig out one of the 11 cool ones I already own.

Oh my gosh...I'm reminded of years ago, back in 1986 when I saw the original tiny picture of this new character called Sci-Fi on the back of the Dial-tone figure's cardback I think I got for Easter that year, and I was so intrigued by what I saw. My curiosity was piqued because the character was in such a cool pose with what looked like a cool weapon, uniform, and gear, but I couldn't make out exactly what he looked like or what his specialty might be. I always loved the original, but this new version...that's what I imagined when my mind went wild with possibilities as a kid as I looked at that cardback. Wow. That is a work of art indeed. And he has a removeable helmet?! Are you kidding me?! Also, it's so ironic that he comes with a helmet with a full visor; whenever I couldn't make out his face on that cardback, I wondered if the visor was a half or full-face one. Just how cool is that?! I'm quite speechless...

 

And y'know...I think a big part of these new figures' appeal is the great new wrist articulation; it just makes a world of difference when posing them with weapons.

 

I think for the first time in almost thirty years, Hasbro is about to surpass anything they did with RAH back in their heyday. I feel like I can say that with a fair amount of confidence. (lol) That Sci-Fi is just outstanding. Simply outstanding.

oh i know and i am with ya on that my man. it just sucks that we are stuck with them. every line has to have so many of them and it takes away form cool characters we could get.

I'm sure they have to throw them in the for retailers, or the kids, if anything. Otherwise it could kill the line if they just made a bunch of characters that us collectors want and not the rest of the masses.

The cartoon messed up Sci-Fi for me. He was a laser guy, but according to the cartoon, everyone had lasers. So, he wasn't that needed. Never had him as a kid (nor wanted him), but I might pick him up now. That's not a bad looking figure.

I don't think this was one character anyone expected to get(or had high on their want list) but when I saw the photos of it, it really brought a smile to my face. I had this one as a kid as well, and loved it. With all the disappointing repaints its nice to have these high points balance it out. I'm really looking forward to the future of GIJOE, and it's because hasbro is making toys like this one. So awesome. #US1#
