  1. Nice custom. What do you use to put the new names on the bases? They look so professional.
  2. I have to say I'm all good with everything. Sure I'll admit that some of the plot to the movie and the series for that matter were a little silly and out there, but overall it was still great. I mean it was the 80's. The tv show to Hasbro was nothing more than a glorified toy commercial. I own all the marvel comic series myself and love that it is so hardcore and realistic compared to the cartoon. But everytime I watch the cartoon I get this little feeling of nostalga that makes me feel like I'm home again. Anyway you slice it the cartoon and the movie for that matter helped put g.i.joe on top. Plus characters like Golobulus, Pythona, and Nemesis Inforcer were just so cool.
  3. I was wondering the same thing myself. I have a feeling they may offer figs that show up in a few if not all the episodes they have in that set. I also have a feeling that there will be at least one 2 part episode. I guess we should find out soon. Maybe at SDCC.
  4. I think the majority of Nemesis is Serpentors body. The head and lower legs are new. The hands have been modified from Serpentor. And the chest piece and belt are just new additions to make him look more like himself.
  5. Found Wave 7 (wave 3 08) at my Wally-mart In Mass. Only got one case but it shows they are in the New England area already. Wave 5 and 6 have also had good distribution too. This definitly shows Hasbro is doing a better job of pushing these out. Oh, and the Vipers kinda suck to my dismay.
  6. One of my CG's hawk medal was left unpainted along with the top five buttons on his chest. Its not that bad looking but it is sloppy. What can you do but fix it yourself. I've seen a couple figures like this around.
  7. Didn't get to read that thread, but those parts would make a good body for him too. My whole point to this thread is that they could have chosen better molds to make him up than the Zartan one. It seems to me the main reason their using it is because of the already exsisting brown color of the mold and the fact the upper torso is armor plated. Your right when you say its just plain lazy.
  8. So I know alot of us joe fanatics aren't to happy with the whole idea of Hasbro using the Zartan mold for the majority(no pun intended) of Major Bludd. As much as we'll all #$#@# and moan you know we'll all buy him when he comes out. My only thought is that if Hasbro was going to reuse any mold it should have been the Cobra trooper mold. Its closer to his actual uniform in the comics and cartoon and in my opinion would have been much better. They could have just added the new head, right arm, dog tags to that mold, and made the chest armor piece seperate. I'm sure that we'll see customs of that same exact combo.
  9. Yeah I opened mine when I got it. Thought maybe all the SS comic packs didn't have the symbol. That was also the pack that somebody stole the Doc mail-away and P.O.P sticker.
  10. Great review guys. First and formost I have to thank you for showing me how that damn Jaws of life for Ripper go on his backpack. I noticed also the comic pack Storm Shadow in the review has the Cobra symbol while the one I got does not. Anyone else come across that?
  11. I work overnight for Wal-mart and we have received wave 5 of the singles and wave 2 of the comics. The one I work at has 4 pegs for the singles and 3 for the comics. Most of the Wal-marts in the county and RI have the same setup. I think it may be an individual store issue. Maybe the toy manager feels that they don't sell well or that they are always on back-order. The problems with the lines availability in 07 may be swaying their minds about 08.
  12. I found a lone wave 5 SE at a Target in RI. No other peeps in the RI/MASS area have found any wave 4 or 5. All are Wal-marts have yet to do their resets. Comic pack wave 1 and singles wave 1, 2, and 3 are easy to find around here. The only thing is when I bought the Wave 5 SE he didn't ring up at the register. The clerk scanned another joe I was buying twice instead. That fig was from wave 3. Thought is was a little odd.
  13. http://enewsi.com/news.php?catid=190&itemid=12380 So they have cast Marlon Waynes as Ripcord. Plus they say in the report that he will be the leader of the Joe unit. Do the people making this movie know anything about G.I.Joe. I understand that movies can't be exactly like the subjects they base them on and that the movie makers must take some liberties, but this is ridiculose. I could see if they cast him as Stalker. It would make sense in a leadership role. It makes me wonder about the success of this movie when Marlon Waynes is cast as the leader of the Joes. Hopefully this is a big mistake on the reporting end.
  14. While all these 2-packs sound great I'm gonna believe it when I see it. Even then its all up in the air. Hasbro has showcased fully developed figs before and not released them. Like the few Robot Rebellion and the last line of joe mission disc. Plus I can't get it out of my head that Hasbro said no Cobra-La figs in one of the monthly Q@A's.
  15. Wave 1, 2, and the Ace/Wild Weasel are reprints from the original Marvel comic run. The twins, battle damage SE/SS, and the Crimson Guard/ Scar trooper are brandy new, but are stories set within the Marvel run. Kinda like filler stories.
