  1. Totally new head and new torso, per the site. I even checked it against Munitia. These really are new parts here. -PJ
  2. I like this figure a. . .lot (scroll down on their page for a bit of a closeup). I think Mastercollector really outdid themselves this time. Hopefully, there will be a blue variant set (I hope). In any case, I'm going to try my hardest to get at least a brunette trooper and maybe Sparks. Again, great job you guys! @yipee@ -PJ
  3. A Cobra Mauler??? I think I'll pass. Most likely it will be offered separately @popcorn@ Okay, all camped out now for midnight (that's one clever gimmick I can get behind). -PJ
  4. Screw this, I'm camping for con exclusive pics. -PJ
  5. Just curious Aly, have you ever looked into vac-metallizing? -PJ
  6. I prefer the first speech to the second. And I sleep with my 25th collection. BTW who wants my pics??? @ohyeah@ #mrsauve# -PJ
  7. You know, he is right! I was only paying attention to the front of the plane all along--err. . .my son hijacked my account actually, and started banging on the keyboard. Yeah, that's the ticket. @hmmm@ @smilepunch@ -PJ
  8. Yeah Mon, we'd really appreciate that. One of the things that I wish YoJoe could do is add a bit about the design history in each of the archive entries, including stuff like what we're discussing. Mark Bellomo actually did a bit of this in his book. . .from what I've heard, adding the historical elements and stuff. Again, thanks. Looking forward to it. -PJ
  9. No. But preorders are already being taken for this particular set at BBTS. Hehe, hope he comes with the soft goods cape. -PJ
  10. In other words. . .YES!!! NOTPICARD HAS ENTERED THE BUILDING!!! Hehe, warmest of welcomes 2 ya man. Long time no see. Best. . .cameo. . .evar!!! -PJ
  11. You mean for the Skystorm X-wing chopper? Good find there! Kudos. The closest I could find for the Sky Hawk (other than what I mentioned above) would be the Nord 500 Cadet. http://www.vstol.org/wheel/VSTOLWheel/Nord500Cadet.htm Also found the Thunderwing below, but everyone knows that one already. Just fun to look at. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lockheed_Martin_X-35 -PJ
  12. Emphasis on the "realistic" as opposed to "real". Of the four you listed before the Skyhawk, only the R.A.M. would be in doubt with its side-mounted gun. But after seeing the M-400 Skycar, I could easily envision a Skyhawk, as a lot of the Joe vehicles were more based on concepts from Popular Science and whatnot. EDIT: Go take a look at the Bell 65 Air test vehicle! Also take the Defiant/Crusader shuttle for example. That really appears to have been based on early specs for the X-33 reusable launch vehicle. http://images.google.com/images?q=x-33+&am...;um=1&hl=en Swear I saw it in an issue of PS somewhere. -PJ
  13. That does look a lot closer. . .a lot. Thanks for the pics, Doc! -PJ
  14. Got this link off Joecustoms. http://www.warbird-photos.com/gpxd/viewtopic.php?t=8648 Freakin' SWEET!!! -PJ
  15. But that's the thing, see. Because if I showed you a Lamborghini Cheetah, or a Bell AH-1 Huey Attack helicopter, you would instantly recognize which Joe toy they were based on. But the Abrams. . .? C'mon now. -PJ
  16. You know, you could really find a niche market/demand for just that very thing IMO. You thought of that? And those would make one sweet dio. -PJ
  17. The GIJoe wiki states that this toy is supposed to be based on the XM-1 Abrams, but really. . .I just don't see it. The turret's all wrong, it doesn't cover the entire width of the vehicle. The front wedge portion (with the star) doesn't seem to match, and the rear engines look different too. Nevermind the scale, searchlight, or the number of bogeys. Anyone have any ideas? -PJ
  18. My 2nd preorder just shipped from BBTS. These is for the single-card case including Flint and Hooded CC. -PJ
  19. I have a line on one that claims to be complete with both figures 100% complete and the filecards/paperwork for $750 prior to shipping. Can I do better? Which parts on this are HTF? I know about Hardtop's mike and the umbilical hose. Anything else? Thanks. -PJ
  20. HA!!! That one's just awesome!!! ##1# Too bad I don't have the parts. Or the time. @grumpy@ Can't wait to see how this one turns out. -PJ
  21. Looking for a sealed Defiant to open for display. Must be 100% complete down to Hartop's mike and gun. http://www.yojoe.com/vehicles/87/defiant/ Box need not be mint, but parts/figures must be sealed. I am realistic about payment as well, just leery about shipping and completeness. LMK. -PJ
  22. Oh wait, you're RIGHT! Chances are that they might even use the entire mold on that. I keep forgetting about Star Brigade. -PJ
  23. @loll@ How'd you come up with those names, Aly? Love it. -PJ
