G.I.Joe Pursuit Of Cobra Canceled Mail-Away Cobra Commander Coming To The Collector Club


The Wire

So, you're paying 20 to 60 for the drone basically. Whatever. I remember people saying the drone seemed like a dumb idea, and how they didn't need another big launcher with a figure, and now everyone will be trying to get one because it's so 'limited.' Ugh.

agreed, we collectors need to get smarter, or they will keep pulling the wool over our eyes. The drone is decent as far as drones or missle launchers go, but to pay that much for an accessory?

yeah, I am going to exercise some will power and skip it. I didn't like it before, and I don't care for it now, even though it is the "ultra rare limited scarce hard to find canceled with hiss drone variant"

Me personally, I love the first POC version, but this one doesn't do a thing for me. I don't care one bit about having that staff or drone. I'm perfectly happy with the Cobra Commander I've already got. Now if he had come with a different mask or something, I might have considered it. But this? Meh...

The evil part of my brain is hoping that the club loses their shirts over this figure for this very reason.

Honestly, is this a joke?

 

This figure was warming pegs when POC was first released, and now they're asking $20-60 for it just because it comes with a HISS drone?...

 

 

HAHAHAHA!

Yawn..... this is a horrible exclusive, one of the worst ive ever seen. @loll@

Draven

 

 

the micky mouse CC at the last con seemed to be of equal quality. Sadly this is a TREND, not an isolated incident.

 

imo the club would have done better to just release the drone in a baggy for 5$ a piece.

They are not going to lose their shirts...these were going for $150+ on ebay. The collecting commmunity is full of speculators, and people will snatch up 2 or 3 of these horrid things thinking they will be like roddy piper, sergeant slaughter or PDD down the line.

The difference between this exclusive and those that you mentioned is that you can still get this figure anywhere. The same can not be said of the others. The only thing you're getting is the HISS launcher which I doubt there is a truly high demand for. So you can't really compare this to the likes of SDCC exclusives of characters you can't get at retail. And anyone that buys up 2 or 3 of these for that purpose is setting themselves up for failure.

True, but the hiss drone is not readily available, which is what people that are buying this thing want. Take a gander at hisstank if you feel so inclined. People were jizzing themselves and talking about ordering 2-3 of them. If people think they can pick something up now to sell at a huge profit later, they will.
