  1. Sorry, not impressed. Nothing tops wes cravens "nightmare on elm street". I might see it, but kinda doubtful. These new remakes of old horror movies are not moving me the way the classics did. I do admit I did like the new texas chainsaw massacre, but thats about it. Maybe I just don't get things nowadays.
  2. I'm going to go with MASK, Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, Mortal Kombat, Alien vs Predator, Ghostbusters, Robocop, Cinema of Fear, Hellboy and terminator. Those would be crossover ideas. If I was shooting for ideas for toy lines in the scale and articulation of GI joe, then I would add Thundercats, World of Warcraft, Lord of the Rings, WWE, TNA, SilverHawks, TigerSharks, Harry Potter, and AVATAR. I would also jump at the chance to collect star wars again if it had that articulation incorporated into it. I know some of these lines already have a 4" scale, but I think the lines could be imp

    ROC vs 25th

    I agree about hama, I think he saw "movie check" and is just going along for the ride on it all. What happened to pride? As far as the sci-fi aspect of Gi Joe, I thought it had a nice blend with the military. It didn't get out of hand (until the end). Color me crazy, but I did liked the laser guns, the defiant and Cobra La (battleforce 2000 not so much). Now with the movie, the sci fi did go too over the top. I would take cobra la over snake mask cobra commander, and all the snake armored troops of the movie. Of course, Cobra needs its blue suited troops, face plated vipers, BATS, and crimson

    ROC vs 25th

    Julianne Moore was perfect for scarlett to me in the ballad of Gi Joe video! Yeah I was not impressed with any of the ROC Scarlett figures. She just doesn't stand out to me. In her defense, (for some odd reason) at least she doesn't look like gorilla face Princess Leia lol . As far as the 25th anniv line goes, I have collected everything I have found and could get my hands on. I got singles, doubles, and some troops I bought 3 or 4 of like the BATS. I would still be buying them if they were out, and wish they would have taken it up a notch to release more like vehicles like oh say the SkySt
  5. Storm shadow "Yeah, this does feel alot like phantom menace doesn't it?" Snake Eyes "................" Storm Shadow "Ok, your right, its worse, I didn't think it was possible either"
  6. Those figures look awesome. Would be nice if they were available for purchase, but i'm sure now they will just be on ebay. That was a cool parachute drop!!
  7. Yeah, he was also Wash on Firefly, and he appeared on Dollhouse recently. Anyone else who would rather see a movie with this cast than the cast of RoC? I think I would. Rollins as Duke! Sweet... I definatly would. I would camp for tickets to see a midnight showing of it. I dug the music too, so would be all over a soundtrack.

    ROC vs 25th

    As a point of reference, when star wars figures were relaunched in 95, they were a big seller, and the line took off, not long after we saw vehicles galore, 12" figures, etc. Now transformers came out and there have been lots of toys made for both movies, and they continue to sell well. GI Joe has had many incarnations, and has been hit or miss. Gi Joe, to me, has returned in a big way. I have enjoyed the relaunch with the toysrus exclusives, to the launch of venom vs valor, spy troops and especially the 25th line. (sigma 6 was cool, but I would have liked a more mego/famous covers/signature
  9. It is all fail to me. I went to target and toysrus last night. Both stores were fully stocked, hardly looked like anything was touched. Even with the sales price, and after pouring over them, looking for something to buy, wanting to buy something, I walked away from it all. I didn't buy anything. They did have everything in stock, I had free range of it all. GI Joe always made me feel patriotic, and happy to be an american. Seeing that god damned generic symbol plastered on everything and no american flag in sight. It's not the same. To me it signifies that they are trying to tell me that its
  10. Thats a very nice mod to ripcord! Good Job! Now to do that with all the movie ripcord figures too lol.
  11. Now that is a beautiful figure. Now I wish I was attended the joe con lol. But unfortunatly am broke from the SDCC. Is there any other way to get this, or just off of ebay afterwards? Thanks in advance!
  12. I am going and am looking forward to it. I am not happy with this movie, and will not see anything joe related there. I am sure it will be a juggernaut like transformers has been. but for me, now I want no part of either of them. Have fun this year bro!!
  13. These are looking so awesome, they even brought a tear to my eye. I can't wait. I am so dieing to see them all decked out with accesories and the missing helmets. As far as the movie stuff goes, I think i threw up a little in my mouth. Shipwreck looks decent. I think all the accessories are hasbros way of trying to justify raising the prices. For a new movie, it sure is funny seeing so many things redone like the vehicles. Why no love for the skystriker STILL? Also, looks like hasbro is resurrecting sigma 6 with those battlers, the storm shadow doesn't look half bad, just needs a trim on
  14. Toys are not serious, they're for fun. Thats what I thought. It's just the people that get pissy if you say something bad about the movie that irk me.
  15. Out here in san diego, most of the time you can see that wave in stores, not often you don't. In fact at some places they get wave 1 back in from time to time at the targets. Most of the figures in the ASA set are nice. I would have liked a more green and accurate serpentor, other than that he still is a nice figure. I can't wait for the last one to hit stores, and while I'm on it this paycheck I will pick up the set with quick kick in it. I actually like this idea for the sets, I hope they make more after this assortment is done, as long as the repaints are at a minimum unless they are army b
  16. I for one, am really getting sick of these "yes men", saying that anyone that opposes the new movie are whining. So since your supporting the line, by supporting this new movie, what are you shooting rainbows out of your butt? This whining rhetoric is NOT acceptable, it is stereotypical, and degrading. As far as the movie figures go, I'm sorry were you born yesterday? Anyone in their right mind KNOWS that ANY (most) movie figures suck. These are no exception. They may be using the 25th mold but thats pretty much the main thing they have going for them, as it has been noted alot of people
  17. Sorry another movie I will have to unfortunatly skip (I did see the first one on cinemax hd for free and shuddered at its awefulness). For the new preview, that wasn't ravage or a dinobot, it was the fish from the simpsons. As far as the transforming debate goes, I am not uber picky about it, but from the first movie why did every iddy biddy little bit have to transform at once? It looked stupid. I guess they had to give them that funky alien look so they could have every little bit unnessacarily transform at once. That was horrible overkill in my book. And for the record I did try to like
  18. [uh.......................um..................the 25th Anniversary GIJOE line is NOT a "screaming success", given that it takes up, what........ 4-6 pegs at most on any given major retailers shelves? There's plenty of other toy lines that can legitimately claim to be far more successful than GIJOE right now. I think for as much as they have been selling and doing well at the stores, (at least most places I've looked) they are doing extremely well. And for a figure line that has caught the attention of other brands to go 3 3/4 as well tells you something. Yes we see repaints now cloggin
  19. Thats great, good for you! I am buying and supporting what I like as far as the toys go, and possibly a video game. I will always support the Joe brand when possible. I can take change and look forward to the future of Gi Joe, I am not dissing that, Just this movie. I hope thats not too big a rain cloud. TESTIFY
  20. A-Freakin-MEN!!!! Thanks for posting this. The 'core' fanbase is waaaaaaaaaaay lower than the 'mass' audience draw. The movie has to be able to reach out past those of us who frequent the boards.......and I'm thinking that this movie is going to accomplish that in spades #US1# Which also illustrates how far outside of the public eye GIJOE really is. The assumption is the brand plays to its "strengths" when its campy, but that is not how aficionados of GIJOE see it. This why I have said, for a long time, that GIJOE is a very difficult property to bring to the big screen.
  21. http://cgi.ebay.com/CUSTOM-GI-joe-loose-lo...1QQcmdZViewItem Ummm, No.
  22. http://cgi.ebay.com/G-I-Joe-25th-Custom-19...1QQcmdZViewItem Oh yeah!!
  23. http://cgi.ebay.com/Custom-MOC-G-I-Joe-BAT...1QQcmdZViewItem this didnt make me go wtf, but it did make me go hmmmmm. I like the filecard etc.
  24. This just in: the gi joe tag line will be removed as it was a ruse. The real name of the movie has been revealed to be : Team america world police: the sequal. At the end of the movie, We will see cobra commander remove his mask to reveal that he is Kim Jong Il. Also red white and blue will be added to the super suits via cgi. Need proof? They are americans fighting terrorism across the world. A world monument gets destroyed. The super suits are actually being manipulated via strings to make them look like they are doing things not humanly possible. Now that that has been established
