  1. What about those of us who no longer have time to stay current and up-to-date in terms of toys, but enjoy coming here to chat with people they've known for well over a year...? I left here for a year and came back because it's a heck of a lot of fun talking about random goofy things with people you "know" who share common interests... and I missed that. I don't mean to turn this into a sympathy story, cause quite frankly, I'm not looking for any. I just wanted to say that save for one or two trolls, all you guys (and girls) rule, it's been fun, etc. ...And will somebody please toss me a line when they get GD back up? @wink@ @lol@
  2. LET'S GO RED SOX!!!! @yipee@ @horse@ ##1# (cowboy up!!)
  3. MASK and Centurions, definately. #joecool# I mean, my older brother and I had a bunch when we were little kids, but we've never seen them around since to really "collect" them consciously. They were pretty much skipped over during this whole 80s-toy revival thing. @hmmm@
  4. Of course not, Tom!! @wink@ I discovered the Dusty one not too long ago and nearly peed my pants laughing. They're supposed to be incredibly low-brow, puerile humor, and yes, some of them are pushing the limit with their profanity, among other things. I'm guessing that's why Hasbro's making such an effort to go after these guys than other parodies that aren't so provocative. @razz@
  5. THIS made me laugh for an HOUR. @loll@ @loll@
  6. Oh MAN--I'm talking to a buddy of mine and he just told me that there's more of Dusty in VvV than there is of Snake-Eyes!!! @bounce@ I don't know if he's just trying to get me to buy the movie, but man, I can't wait to see it now! @smilepunch@
  7. Wow!! I may not agree with you on everything, Ken, but that was very well-stated. I've seen more than my fair share of anime... and while I believe there are a few decent anime shows out there, I think the genre/style as a whole gets way too much credit, for what it's worth. Anyone convinced that anime is the best animation out there seriously needs to go out and see an old-school Disney flick... pre 1970s, back when animation was fuller, richer, and ripe with subtle human expression. Nowadays animation factories--not necessarily just the Japanese--churn out cartoons as if they were cheap plastic toys from Taiwan. Quality has undoubtedly been sacrificed to quantity. But hey--that's not the topic at hand, is it? @razz@ I just had to give a thumbs-up to that little piece of insight. Having said all that, I don't think I'll surprise anyone when I say that I would rather not have an anime GI Joe cartoon, thank-you-very-much, if given a choice. Anime has advantages, like its reputation for handling darker and more mature storylines, but I don't think it's worth all the other characteristics of the genre. Who knows... maybe, if all of this goes through, some wonderful fluke will happen and we'll get a kickass show everybody loves. And maybe Tom Brady will show up at my door tomorrow and propose. I do prefer to think optimistically. Hey... anything could happen! @lol@
  8. LOL Clam! Hey, Samus! What's up, darling? Haven't seen you in a long time. Actually, I think it was right after this site did the change over from ADC to TNI. How's school goin? You still posting in the music forum? School's great... I'm loving it now that I'm officially an American History psycho. @lol@ And I posted a few times in the music forum, but now that I think of it, I should probably post more. @razz@ Good to have you back! #joecool#
  9. I guess this is where I rejoice because Dusty's shafted so often he doesn't count as a "major character"...? @lol@ But anyways... the three major characters I'd say (easily) 1. Snake-eyes. 2. Storm-shadow. 3. Snake-eyes-with-Scarlett-clinging-to-his-arm.* *Yes, I'm convinced that they're one entity, save in the cartoon. Never cared much for Scarlett whenever she was around/obsessing about Snake-Eyes... and that's also just in case #1 didn't work the first time around. @razz@
  10. Well hey!! I just "came back" to TNI a week or two ago, DJ, and I'm in the same boat as you... trying to get back in the loop here after a long time away! That "sixth spot down" threw me off too. What, did our forum drop in rank or something?! @lol@ Meh... there's not really any more purpose to this post other than to say that you're one of the posters I really missed! Welcome back!
  11. That episode scarred me so deeply that I wasn't allowed to watch G.I.Joe for like a year. I was about 6 when it came out, and I kept having nightmares. It did cement Shipwreck as a favorite, though. That's exactly what happened to my older brother... he was really freaked out by the Springfield episodes but Shipwreck is by far his favorite Joe. I'd have to agree with all of you, by the way. Personally, I think it's kind of cool to have one of the "secondary" characters have the spotlight. I thought the toon put Snake-Eyes in his proper place. @razz@
  12. LOL... that happened to me, too. I saw the Hello Kitty stuff and was like, "nooooo!!" @lol@
  13. AAAAHH!!! NOOO!!!! @bH@ This guy knows what he's talkin' about... oh man. I remember a few years ago when all the hardcore Transformers fans (myself included) were so excited for the "great new TF cartoon series" that we were going to get. I think RID and Transformers: Armada are some of the biggest, crappiest, and most terrible letdowns in cartoon history. #yuk@# Plus, I don't find "A Real American Hero" drawn in a Japanese-anime style to be very palatable... @eyerise@ Of course everyone would want another GI Joe cartoon, if it was done well enough. Same goes for the comic--which we actually ended up getting. I don't think continuity would be much of an issue; GI Joe doesn't have a crazy insane-o timeline like all the Transformers toons/comics do. And as for CGI versus cell animation, I'd prefer the good old-fashioned 2-D stuff (I guess I'm just an old fogey like that. @wink@) Justice League is a good starting point, but if we're talking ideal, "Batman: The Animated Series" is unquestionably the best example to follow. #joecool#
  14. Geez... I love 80s nostalgia shirts... like that one with the GI Joe logo in it... but they NEVER have it in adult small. EVER. @cussing@ Same goes for all those awesome NES and Transformers logo shirts... gahh!! *shakes fist in air*
