  1. I think the multipacks plastic is the worse for me. I haven't had any problems with the gi joes getting them out of the package, although at times can be a little difficult depending how they are posed in there. I bought a hellboy multi pack from amazon, and Krauss broke coming out of the package, his leg snapped off at the joint. I have not got a response from amazon or the seller. I did notice the seller has a policy that he is not responsible for broken toys that have been played with after the package has been opened. I glued the leg back on as a temp fix. But it didn't fix the problem.
  2. For some reason, I took a second gander at duke, and the Silver Hawks sprang to mind. It's been a long week lol.
  3. I am still liking the Cobra Commander, but now I am liking the duke figure all decked out. Still not liking the troops, and can take or leave the BAT. If price point is around $20, I'll bite. Anything over $25, I will have to hold off on. I mean come on, they are mostly going to be a box of repaints.
  4. To me it's price point. If they were $5 a piece, I would probably pick 6 or so up. Now that the prices have gone up, I am kinda iffy about picking up figures at random, especially repaints. I do prefer the 5 pack idea better. It is better on the wallet and you get 4 troops with 1 officer, instead of stock piling the officers.
  5. Dude, you should be working for hasbro! I would buy that in a heartbeat. We need the vehicle too #US1#

    Thanks, Bro. Wasn't the despoiler the little flight pod like Serpentors air chariot? I liked that one. Oh well.
  9. I feel the same way. The only thing to make the movies a little bearable was wolverine. Well should I say Logan, when he was in his civvies. They tried to say the comic costumes would look bad in a movie, I beg to differ. The movie costumes were the things that looked bad. Look at Watchmen, you can bet I will be there opening day to see that, and I know it will do extremely well. Do those costumes look ridiculous? Hell No. Right, marvel let them take too many liberties with the property. I grew up with x-men, they are the reason I got into comics in the first place. But now where are they?

    Target Sale

    I saw one right before christmas at full price. Now, nothing. Did you know it made the top 10 list in toyfare? priceless.
  11. I know, right. I am a big fan of rah, and all the comics that have come out, even DDP. I want a definitive serpentor, and a ddp version, same with zartan. To me the ddp version of zartan looked kinda like a scooby doo villain, and the ddp version of serpentor belongs in a nursing home instead of being a Cobra emperor. I do like the new zartan, but the paint on his face is a little off. You want to talk about quality control, I went to toysrus for the 3 packs and had to tear through the whole bin to find a complete set without anything wrong with them. Most figures, especially wild bill had s

    For me I prefer getting the cases from bigbadtoystore because they actually sell the figures single or waves. If Hasbro did that, then I probably would buy from them. As far as the individual figures at stores I draw the line at 7 a figure, unless I got to have it. Especially considering all the lovely repaints hasbro is rolling out. I have to say I am getting rather annoyed with hasbros sneakiness as of late. Putting wild weasel in a comic pack, then released with the rattler, and releasing Tripwire in a comic pack, then single carded with a peice to mass device. Not cool.
  13. Thank You, much appreciated. Do you have any reccomendations on how I can heat it up to melt the glue? I'm guessing boiling. yes/no? Thank You.

    But you gotta admit they are nice designs. I think we can give hasbro a slide on those. I will gladly buy the stinger and the arctic hiss when they come out. I think it is nice that they are being inventive with vehicles to come up with the arctic hiss. I can't wait to see what they "make" next. I am still holding out for a concept art hiss with drop down canopy. With the SHARC if it was just a redo with no improvements, I would have passed. I still hope to see the cobra WOLF, snowcat, destro despoiler, Terrordrome, non movie night raven, tomahawk, HAVOK, Hydrofoil, and of course the whale.

    True it would be better with somemore retooling to perfect it, like what they did with most everything else of just lowering the cockpit a little, so they can sit upright. Thats where the poseable legs would come in too. From the design art its kinda neat the way they are on the belly looking up and piloting that way, but in reality that would cause neck strain (I would think). To add if you were doing that you wouldnt want to be looking down at the monitor half the time your piloting either. On a side note here, I do have to say I have had less headache ordering gi joe figure cases onlin
  16. you know, after reading more and seeing the comments on the pics, I had to relook at the pics when I got home from work. Yes Duke does look silly, and to me he looks like Deer Hunter Duke in that get up. Then I looked at the scarab, I have to still admit, i'm not impressed. But after second glance, it didn't look like a cobra vehicle. Since the release of Matt Tracker, I have to say stick some vemon stickers on it, and it would look close to the Jack Hammer from MASK. It needs a pop up rear turret though to finish it off.
  17. I'm not a fan of the mighty muggs in general mostly due to them being a basic body painted up. They look ok, but nothing jumped out at me to make me want to buy any until I saw this one. If he does come out. I will snag him up and put him on my desk at work. This I command!!
  18. I for one do not want to see ripcord in a buddy buddy movie where he joins the team. Also I got really discouraged when I read in the article that they took a little bit of old, a little bit of new, and added their own spin, put it in a pot and voila they got a movie everyone will love. I'm sorry in my world that becomes bastard boy chained to the cellar wall. Now where's the movie I want to see?
  19. Hi all, first time poster here. I am not looking to make any enemies but feel strongly about this and wanted to voice my opinion. I have never liked any of the X-men movie costumes, first and foremost. Mystique looked ridiculous to me as well as sabretooth in those rags (more or less). None of the other super hero's had to wear a black leather costume( although Gi joe is the next victim), so why the x-men? I am surprised that Professor Xavier didn't have to wear one lol. To me the fact that they didn't even try to use anything from the comics was disrespectful to the property. I understand

    On my recent outing, I decided to hunt the scarce SHARC. I wasn't going to at first, but after reading several reviews, my mind was quickly changed. I have to say I am so glad I did pick it up (went through 6 stores, this must be popular!!) After my joy of adding the stickers, the nostalgia hit me. It was great!! The new and improved deep six was perfect (well could have used a little mobility in the legs and neck to look like the art on the box, but otherwise perfect). After all the repaints and the bummer news on the movie, my spirits got lifted a little with this. Now I can't wait for the C
  21. Ok I broke down and bought the arise serpentor arise pack, as well as the air chariot vehicle pack. I have decided I do want to finish the mass device and will have to wait til next paycheck to get the quick kick pack but I will get it. The best of looks awesome, I can't wait to get that one. Now is there any way to remove the head peice and shoulder snakes holding the cape in place with out cutting them? Like flying Fyggs boiling method or something? Also, the wierd thing is my air chariot pack didn't have a cape for serpentor. Did I not look everywhere or what? Lastly my dusty didn't come wi
  22. She reminds me of Diana from V, wearing an x-men movie costume, with a cobra symbol bling bling necklace.
  23. Anyone notice on the signing the registration for news on the movie site, that it says august. I could have swore it was set for may.
  24. Personally, I want to see Golobulus (like the customs with the poseable snake body, not the nonposeable v1 body) Pythona Cobra Commander with mask falling off with snake face underneath Cesspool More Dreadnoks!!! more characters with removable helmets like airtight and barbecue "poseable" SNAKE armor not like the unposeable Deep six a "poseable" Deep six in deep dive armor Spy troops Barrel roll with glider Spy troops Zarana (from the movie) Big Boa More accurate Devils Due Storm Shadow first appearance and from mini series More accurate serpentors from devils due, and cart
  25. Ok so I went back to the store and found 1 box left, the arise serpentor arise pack. I had a gift certificate i got for xmas, so I used it on that. Dusty looks a little missing without his webgear. Now with the serpentors. I like the color scheme to the first serpentor, and think his colors are more RAH, and this one in the box set fits the devils due colors. I swapped helmets. But couldn't swap the capes, or the headpeice, they are attached and from the looks of it, and can't be removed or they might break. any reccomendations? Which looks better on the air chariot? Thanks BTW the skeleto
