  2. Hey all,

     

    Well on 7/ 25, I won an auction for a silver/gold Destron Comic Con figures from toyrocket.com auctions. Well after many emails from me, I called today and they said hasbro would not sell to them the figures and I would be getting a refund. I recieved the refund tonight so in total I will have one gold head & one silver form Imperial Outpost toys and 4 silver form hasbrotoyshop. At least I got one Gold head! Also here is the title form the auction

    "SDCC COMIC-CON 2007 GI G.I. JOE SILVER/GOLD DESTRO SET

    ABSOLUTE 110% GUARANTEED DELIVERY FROM SDCC EXHIBITOR"

    Have you received anything from Imperial Outpost Toys? I ordered 3 Gold and 2 Silver Destros from them and have yet to receive anything. I bought one of the Golds from their Ebay auction and it was supposed to ship between the 29th and 31st. The other 2 Golds and 2 Silvers, I ordered from their website. Let me know if you get anything and I'll keep you informed as well.

     

    Paintfury & SPC Airborne,

     

    I too ordered from Imperial Outpost Toys and my Gold Destro came today. I didn't have luck when I emailed them either but when I called last Thursday they were very helpful and told me that my oder was shipped out. I will do business with them again and you guys should have your Destro's soon. Side note, I did pay more for 2-day delivery and my order was shipped via USPS on Thusrday and came today.

  3. When I placed by my bid on ebay with toyrocket.com it was not a Pre-order as mentioned above. The title of the the auction was "SDCC COMIC-CON 2007 GI G.I. JOE SILVER/GOLD DESTRO SET ABSOLUTE 110% GUARANTEED DELIVERY FROM SDCC EXHIBITOR" and when I placed my bid it said 5 sets available.

     

    But my question is??? Why did some from toyrocket.com get their Destro sets and some others did not???

    If toyrocket.com did not have them to sell on ebay because of the high demand then why list the auction and say that their was "5 sets available"

     

    I don't know, no one here can really answer that. I would go to ToyRocket's site and contact them directly and ask, cause only they know, I was simply trying to give you all some background on how these exclusives tend to work in general so you had a better understanding of it, I don't have any contact with toy rocket and know nothing about their personal business practices. Joe is probably right, they probably got a limited number and filled orders on a first come first serve basis with what they got, but like I said only TR knows for sure what they did.

     

    I emailed them 4 times in a week, no response, so when I called, the woman at toyrocket.com said they didn't get any of the Destro's..........Oh well, live and learn I guess..

  6. AH are you talking loose like I am? So far I don't have any MOC figures, though I am looking for v4 snake eyes and v1 mutt and junkyard (let me know if you find these bro).

     

    Captain: I'm not sure. I might just start off with a few, like 10-30, but eventually I'd like to have my entire loose joe collection in cases, so probably 100+.

     

    Thanks guys.

     

    I might have enough of the cases if you want let me know. I originaly bought them to display my loose joes as well but I bought large display cases instead. So most of the cases you are looking for I have are not even used yet.

  7. time to start customzing MASK figures!!! :D

     

    Dude! You are a genious! I love MASK and I still have all them from when I was a kid. I am eating my words now. You are wise beyond your years :)

     

    Sorry to get off topic but here is a great site about M.A.S.K. link

  8. Hey all, for those who went to this years convention, the pictures of the crowds waiting to register, waiting for the Sarge's autograph, the Sat. night dinner etc. it looked as if the numbers of attendees were low. I would like to hear from those who went and how it compared to past conventions.

     

    I went to Norfolk and San Fran. and both seemed to have more, especially Norfolk.

    I know many will say San Fran did not have a lot but from this years pictures the numbers seemed lower than San Fran.

     

    Thanks and Happy 4th! #US1#

  9. So who is this anyways? I don`t recognize him.

     

    He's Cobra Mortal, it was a plastirama exclusive back in the days...

    The text on the card is written entirely in Spanish. A translation for the filecard appears below.

     

    Code Name: COBRA?MORTAL?

    FILE NAME: UNKNOWN

    PRIMARY MILITARY SPECIALITY: ARTILLERY

    SECONDARY MILITARY SPECIALITY: WAR COMPUTING

    GRADE: 06

    His heart and his brain are nothing but "cold and complex computers". Due to his cruelty, he is rather a soul less?robot than a human being,?with only one mission to achieve: destroy good and justice. He is incredibly skilled for operating his S.S. (super silence) machine gun and his laser crossbow is his favorite weapon. He belongs to Cobra Commander's most fearful battalion. If you ever have to face him, remember, only one mistake and Cobra Mortal will finish you.
