  1. im jk, honestly i haven't kept up on how this line is doing, ive seen a few at retail but passed...im burnt out i guess. Its probably gonna take the snow trooper or biker scout to get my juices flowing again. I thought maybe slave leia would do it but the excitement hasnt kicked in yet. Maybe even the new movies will get me going again or a new big vehicle. Im glad though ppl are excited about this line...and its hanging in there. I've been the same way Romadon. I'm a huge Sar Wars collector, and I just assumed I'd be all over these, but...I don't know what it is. I only got my first one last night for a Christmas present, and it's Han. I took my time and thought I picked-out the one in the bunch with the best paint job, but when I got home and took a closer look, the flesh paint on his neck was sloppy in the back and on the sides. My issues have been the paint problems I guess. For this to be the be-all-end-all of Star Wars action figure lines, I've not been too impressed with the paint. I've just got a feeling though, were I to open my Han and check it out loose, I suspect I'd be in love with this line. what really has me thinking is when the new movies come out, are we gonna have two lines 6" and 3/4"equally represented.....i dont think i can support two lines, will 3/4 line take a back seat to the 6" line in terms of resources allocated to one line over the other. Is hasbro even gonna make 3/4" figures for the new movies, or just 5 pts of articulation style figures just for the movies. Do i buy these 6" figures, then only to see later a re-releases of these figures on vintage style packaging.
  2. They revealed a 6" Biker Scout w/ Speederbike earlier this year for 2014. Really? I heard rumors about this being the plan, but never saw actual photos or was it just an announcement? If so, this is one i have to pickup.

  8. Star Wars? Go back further--its a practise of economy that goes back at least as far as the 12" GIJOES in the 60's. Hasbro saves, thus makes, money by employing savvy re-use and re-paints and has throughout their history. Its just smart business. LOL, yeah your right, wasn't thinking that far back, but you get my complaint. I'm all for hasbro saving money and making money by reusing old molds and repainting them, but the problem is when you get: Comic pack (Duke & CC) when they could've given us something more interesting.
  9. Hey gang, I've been collecting Star Wars since they released the POTF He-man style Luke, Chewie, Han Solo and Storm Trooper...finally after years of hasbro retooling and rereleasing these figures, they pretty much fixed all these characters!!! However, I still finding it amazing how they still manage to screw things up.... With that in mind I was wondering what you guys thought were some of the worst things hasbro has done with the GI joe 25th anniversary line... here's my quick list, but I'm also gonna give them props on things they did that I love. I'm only gonna list 2-3 things in each category to kick things off: Worst habits and practices brought over from Star Wars 1. Rereleasing God Awful repaints of existing figures. 2. Promoting a great battle pack only to pack it with another SE, CC, SS Duke, that we don't want. worst upgrade from classic 80's line to 25th line: 1. Lt Falcon (Comic Pack) 2. Serpentor 3. Zartan 4. Lady Jay (Single Card) worst comic pack idea 1. Duke & Cobra Commander (pegwarmer) best thing hasbro did with the 25th line: 1. Deciding to bring back GI joe and keeping the orignal style intact!!! 2. Bringing the old school vehicles back and not giving them some goofy color scheme. 3. DVD packs, love the first two packs. best upgrade from 80's line to 25th line. 1. BATS, perfect figure, best army building trooper figure in gi joe and star wars. 2. Lady Jay (DVD PACK) I waited since the 80's for them to fix this!!!! 3. Snow Job...I hated the 80's version, he looked thin, flimsy and weak, but this 25th version is tough, love the removable hood and goggles. best comic pack idea: 1. xamot & tomax 2. Firefly & Stormshadow

    2008 Wave 12

    I wish they would release the Cobra Trooper that comes in the DVD Battle set (set 1) as a single carded figure. He's perfect, Red Cobra Logo, Black face mask, love the weapon and the white painted trim around the knee pads. I'll get SS cause I love Ninjas Tripwire Cobra diver Ripper I'm getting only 1 Cobra Trooper/ w red face mask!!! and passing on the CG, I hate this mold, no matter how they paint it.
