  1. Hey, A friend of mine is selling a bunch of ARAH GI Joe stuff he recently came into. Lots of cool items. I told him I'd help advertise. Here are his listings http://www.ebay.com/sch/little_wink/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_from=&_ipg=25&_trksid=p3984 Let me know if you have any questions.
  2. Like Arrow.. if anyone is willing to help a fellow Collector north of the border msg me.
  3. GI Joe means something very simple for me, it holds a memory of an amazing child hood I had, and growing up with such an awesome toy was one of the highlights of that childhood. Now as an adult that is almost turning 30, GI Joe always brings a smile to my face as I remember those amazing years gone by. Thank you GI joe
  4. So Tripwire will be released on a single card? So I don't have to bother picking up the CC & Tripwire Comic pack...
  5. Hopefully your right, as I'm not buying him if he is just like the photo posted on Hasbro site.. http://www.hasbro.com/common/images/news/t...swipe-Robot.jpg
  6. Hope these are not as hard to get as the Star Wars Ultimate Battle Packs.. I'm still on the hunt for a Endor pack. Never even seen them at retail, and then the clearanced them off super quick... it was insane.
  7. Ok, can you explain the head mold then? its different it all of the first batch of pictures, now its just sunstreakers head without the color. All I know is that original I had plans to buy both, now I'm just gonna pick up one of them, don't need 2 of the same, just in a different color.
  8. Hey, Not sure if this has been talked about before, as I did a quick search and couldn't find anything, but whats up with the Sideswipe mold for Universe / Classics 2.0?? I believe when classics 2.0 was first shown we were shown two separate molds for Sunstreaker and Sideswipe, like the one below. They were suppose to look similar but different at the same time, with a different chest piece, and I would assume a different head. http://flickr.com/photos/13615910@N04/2498009702/ http://www.flickr.com/photos/despotes/2446172903/ http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product...mp;picture=aux1 However after seeing a recent early sideswipe auction on ebay and now on Hasbros site... sideswipe now appears to just be the same mold as sunstreaker just painted red (see below), how disappointing... http://www.hasbro.com/common/images/news/t...swipe-Robot.jpg So what happened? I know its more cost affective for Hasbro, but this certainly sucks as a fan.
  9. Which one would you recommend for the GI. Joe figures, Star Case 2 or Star Case 4?
  10. I don't think that will work. Just curious if they are out for sale as of yet? if not what cases do people use for the Joe figures?
  11. Hey, I'm sure this has been covered before, but I couldn't find anything by searching. So if someone can give me a quick answer that would be great. Anyways. I'm just curious if Hasbro is selling these protective caes that the mail away Doc figure comes in? http://i.toynewsi.com/g/index.php?mode=vie...600&start=0 If anyone can tell me where I can buy them, that would be great. Or if they are not for sale as of yet, where can I get some nice cases that will fix the 25 Ani line? Thanks
  12. maybe you could be right, but why is the artwork missing? I'm sure they could just remove the text, if they have already removed the artwork. However one thing I forgot to mention in my original rant, was if you turn the blister card over, its also different than the American version, and has big versions of the art work, displaying other figures in the series instead of the regular file card. So the artwork is one the back of every card, just not on the front.
  13. So I'm sure this has been discussed before, but I just had to get my rant of my chest. I have been a huge fan of GI Joe (RAH) since it first started in the early 80's, when I grew up with it. There was nothing more exciting then going to the local department store, and seeing a wall of RAH figures, and picking out a few to buy. In recent years since I've been an adult, I've got into toy collecting and now collection Star Wars, Transformers and GI Joe stuff. Here is Canada Transformer stuff is easy to find, Star Wars is a little hit and miss, but GI Joe is non-existent. I guess Hasbro Canada simply does not see a market for it here in Canada. Anyways, with the recent release of the 25th Anniversary figs, I have been going crazy with frequent trips to the States (Syracuse, Watertown, Ogdensburg, Massena and Even Orlando the odd time) buying anything I come across. However although I go fairly often its still hard to find a good selection of figs, as I guess each city has their own bunch of collectors and cross border shoppers, so I often come away empty handed. So here is where my rant basically starts. I'm was in a local walmart (Ottawa, Canada) the other day, and decided to take a trip down the toy aisle, for months I have kinda been avoiding it, as there hasn't been anything on the shelf worth buying. So I stop and take a look at some Star Wars Mighty Muggs (or something like that), stop and think that they look cute, but it, then start to walk away, but to my surprise my eye catches something just as I turn away... there is ShipWreck stair back at me. Holy Snap! whats this 25th Anniversary figs here in Canada? is this a dream??? I quickly look through the figures, a complete wave of Crimson Guard, ShipWreck, Flash, SnowJob, Destro, SnakeEyes, and maybe some others. There was at least 8 or so figs on the one peg. I grab Flash, SnowJob and one Crimson Guard... I notice the price, which I'm not too happy about... $7.96 CDN. SIDE RANT: Price? What is up with the price of these figs in Canada? $7.96?? Last time I checked American and Canadian money were pretty much even. Sure I can go to Macdonald's with an and American 5 dollar bill, and get the change back in Canadian, and vice versa in the cities I visit in New York State. These figs are $4.88 in the US, I would have expected a better price here in Canada, not nearly double. END SIDE RANT Ok, back to my original rant. so I'm walking away with my 3 new figs, happy as can be. I can't believe I managed to pick up SnowJob, Flash, and the CG, and I didn't even have to go on a road trip. Then it happens. I notice what I have picked up, and why I sometimes hate the country I live in. Take a look at the attached picture (borrowed from joecanucks.com newsletter) The one thing that I love from my childhood, the detailed packaging of RAH GI Joe figures, ruined by Bilingualism. First off, if the white sticker with the tril-lingual words wasn't bad enough, what is up with the lack of art work???????? OMG ... why even put these things on the shelf with out the artwork. I couldn't get over it. I understand its the LAW that things have to be bilingual (for those 15% of people that speak French) but, last time I checked artwork doesn't have anything to do with language. someone (i.e. Hasbro) is just getting lazy and cutting down cost value, which isn't cool when your producing a collectors item. So after having a discussion with my wife, I decided to drop Flash and the CG, and only buy SnowJob, with the condition that if I find him in the states, I'll buy him there, and return this one. Hasbro Canada.. what are you doing to me??? this is horrible. Now in joecanuck's newletter he actually got to ask Hasbro about this, and they came back with a pretty good answer, but I don't care. This is just ridiculous. Needless to say I will be buying my GI Joe figs in the states from now on, or maybe just maybe, they will fly off the shelf here in Canada and will be replaced with an Emergency import of American carded Joes. End Rant... sorry. just had to get that off my chest.
  14. Thanks.. but I live in Canada, and have been desperately trying to track one down. I actually just found the information I was looking for.. wish I had to have it while I was on vacation in Orlando two weeks ago... Anyways... here it is. DPCI# 087-06-0112
