  1. Thanks Al! Ill be checking GTG for it!
  2. I seem to recall a few years ago there was one of those custom figure/weapon sites that offered a joe sized Sword of Omens (and other thundercats weapons if I recall). Anyone know what site that was and/or if they are still selling those? (or does anyone have one I can buy?) Thanks!
  3. Well a year heavy in POC toys is inevitable so wishing for a DRASTIC shift away from that is pointless. A realistic hope for 2010, let them put out as much POC stuff as they like. I'll cherry pick what I like (which for ROC was probably about 40% for me, looks to be much less than that for POC from what wev've seen so far). I would like to see them throw out a few more 25th types scatered into the line. There are still some huge gaping holes in the 25th line up (Footloose, Lifeline, Airtight, Cover Girl, Jinx, Zaranna, Zandar, ect...). Or give us a few more exclusive box sets like the Invasion/Defense of Cobra Island sets. By the end of 2010 I'd love to see all the Joes and Cobras from 1982 to 1986 completed (which isn't that many really). More resolute would be cool too but not my main hope.
  4. I would have been shocked had the line continued. It was one of the most stagnant toy lines I have ever seen. Not really sure why. It wasn't a bad line. Just a little plain. I do hope they find a way to get the other bridge peices to us
  5. So I'm having a little trouble deciding what to do with Bench Press. Normally I don't really pay much attention to the file cards and I pretty much just use a figure how ever I see fit. But In Bench Press' case I'm a little at odds. I think what throws me off (and intrigues me) is the fact that Bench Press' file name is Craig McConnel which is of course Rock N Roll's name. So I'm having trouble deciding who Bench Press is. What do you think?
  6. Agreed. As much as people want to keep saying this movie was a failure, the facts say otherwise. I just think its funny how people can't admit that they were wrong. This movie did not "bomb" like so many predicted.
  7. So can the people that keep saying this movie didn't do well finally admit that you are wrong? Whether you liked the movie or not doesn't matter. This movie was a success... the numbers prove it. I don't see how you can contine to dispute that.
  8. Well I for one appreciate the man boob pictures, Jase!
  9. All the Targets around me had the 3 3/4 figures on clearance for $1.78. I couldn.t pass that up I bought all that I could find. Which wasn't many. Also two seperate TRU's had the 3 3/4 figures on sale buy one get one free. So I bought a buch there two. I have the day off tomorrow so I think I'll start on my custom crew!
  10. I bought several of them. Scarlet CoverGirl Snake Eyes Zartan Shipwreck Sgt Stone Breaker Baroness Destro Storm Shadow Heavy Duty (reactive armor) Heavy Duty (Green Camo) Ripcord I'm totally diggin the gray camo outfits many of them have. Have a cool custom joe team planned for them. I haven't opened either of the HD's or Ripcord. I'm not really diggin them. I think I am going to take them back. The oly ones I don't like that I opened are Baroness and Snake Eyes. The rest I love though. Glad this line is finally out!!!
  11. Hope this isn't too late. What GI Joe means to me... In all honesty the meaning that GI Joe olds for me goes much deeper than just some plastic collectables that I might one day be able to sell for money. Collecting GIJoe is a way for me to hold on to a peice of my childhood. When I was 7, 8, 9, 10 years old my parents spoiled me by getting me pretty much every GI Joe toy I ever wanted. My days were filled with battles in the back yard and fort building on the livingroom couch. It was so simle back then. No worries. No concerns other than how GI Joe was going to take down Cobra (and possibly why couldn't cobra ever win!). So GI Joe means to me never having to have to let go of the simpler times in life.
  12. I'm glad I dropped this line when I did. This is rediculous. Sorry Mattel. I say let this line die.
  13. going with a big ol "No" on that. THat line was okay at the time but it is terribly out dated now. I'm looking forward to what playmates might do with this 3 3/4" scale
  14. The missing peices DO NOT come with the bridge. I bought it. I'd say your second assumption is correct. And I'm actually kind of diggin these figures. I bought Uhura and Sulu just to try out the line to see if I liked it and I'm hooked. I have since picked up all of them. No the figures are not the best toys ever but they are relatively cheap and I can over look their flaws pretty easily. I can see a lot of custom potential with these. The heads are EASY to swap (just boil and pop) so I have already made a regular uniform McCoy and Checkov. Just removed the extra captains stripes from an extra Kirk to make Checkov. (McCoy is still a rank to high cause of swaping with Spocks body but I'm okay with that for now. I'll fix it later if it starts to really bother me). I'm really looking forward to completing the bridge. I'll probably make a better base for all the peices out of foam core in the near future. Probably will wait till I see the movie so I can get a visual on how to make some accurate walls as well. Over all this line, while not perfect, is really catching my attention. Can't wait for future waves! Hope we get a few of the other Starfleet officers from the old series in movie form... Chapel, Rand, O'Riely, some random red shirts... But heck.. even if we don't They should be plenty easy to make with some extra heads.
  15. Saw all of these toys tonight at a TRU in GA.Only picked up the 3.75" Sulu and Uhura just to see if I liked them. FOr the most part I do. SUlu's torso is a bit on the clunky side ad the t-crotch construction is pretty out dated but I have to say over all I'm impressed. More so than I thought I wouold be. Gonna have to check my financies and see if I can swing collectiong this line... ANd word on if there is a wave 2 or what will be in it?
