I'm digging this fig as well. Easily the best of the bunch.

 

Still not even remotely contemplating the Sub but a great reveal none-the-less

WOW!! Saved the best for last I see? ^_^

 

That is one awesome looking Big Boa! They did good on this one! So out of them all, these are the ones I'm even remotely interested in...

Not a very good percentage here, and definitely makes the cost a real deal breaker. <_<

Yeah, I kinda agree.......I'm ashamed to admit I like the Nano-BAT though....but thats really it. I wouldn't be too heartbroken if I never had any of the other figures.

 

Nice Job on the Big Boa though......thats a pretty snazzy figure.

I would include Grunt, Topside and TNT with those. At least they still fall under the "25th Anniversary" category, unlike VvV Jinx, Barrel Roll, Sure Fire and the Nano BAT. Cover Girl kind of works as a 25th Anniversary figure too.

dang. now that one I want

 

 

my thoughts exactly.

 

dammit... now I have to figure out a way to get this guy.

 

 

 

Big Boa is so well executed, it almost makes you angry that the other figures aren't nearly as good

Is there a limit per member? I can see paying someone with a membership the extra to get just the figures I want, but has that been factored in and verboten? I mean, scalpers would certainly take advantage of that, so who knows?

Not a bad figure I have to say.

 

Too bad we won't get the one GI Joe that was meant to be his direct rival - Rocky Balboa ;)

 

Now THAT would be a cool figure to see too... :)

I've always loved Big Boa, against my better judgement. I mean, he didn't always seem practical or very realistic, but at the end of the day he diid seem like a fitting and very intimidating drill instructor for Cobra. This new one is definitely nice. It's a must have.

 

And...after almost twenty-five years wondering, I might actually finally find out what he looks like underneath that helmet. (lol)

Did Boa ever show up in the cartoon or an actual comic book story? I only recall ever seeing him in the GIJoe Universe comic thing, the comic that basically just had characters and their bio's

He was in one of the newer comics... I think the series with Chuckles working for cobra that lead into the current Civil War stiff. He doesn't hear the helmet in the comic, but they set it up so he would "need" it. He gets his jaw shattered or his nose destroyed some how in a fight. I forget the details... sorry. It's hard to keep all the stories straight will the various on going continuities.

I'm liking this figure and won't lie, I'm ready to sign up. I like nine or ten of the announced figures and the only real "deal breaker" here will be if the club goes above $25 a figure. Sure I wish it would be cheaper, but I look at some of the other exclusives that have come out the last couple year (Slaughter, Zarann, Dial Tone) and on the secondary market they are really expensive. I don't want to wait a year of so and decide I want Big Boa only to see him selling for $50+. I already regret not signing up last year and not getting Dial Tone.

 

BTW, one of the poster above asked if members could order more than one figure. I believe they said that if you had subscribed to the club you could order more of the figures on top of your sub without ordering a second sub. Maybe I'm remembering wrong but I think they said that.
