  1. I still remember seeing The Rise of Cobra trailer and knowing it was going to be a bomb. If ROC didn't kill future prospects from going to see this one. I hope the movie helps bring back the toy line to full strength and that the figures look as nice as the costumes in the movie. I get more of a mix of Renegades and Pursuit of Cobra than anything else, but as a hardcore fan, I really am excited about this!


  2. We just had the streaming for a while, but my wife kept saying she wanted to watch new Dexter's, so I got the disc... three months ago, it still hasn't been watched all the way through.

     

    Honestly it's a great service, I feel kind of like a chump for owning all the American Dad's, South Park's, and a bunch of others that are kinda pointless to have on disc. Seems like they are adding shows all the time, that can't be cheap. I am not surprised by this move, honestly I thought it was a steal at 8 bucks. It's like being your own cable company, you decide whats on, how many episodes you want to watch. Sure it's not new primetime stuff, but as the old saying going, if I haven't seen, it's new to me.

     

    That is so funny because that is the exact same thing that happened to me. The wife was all about watching Dexter, so now we have the one DVD at a time plan along with the streaming.


  3. I just want to go on record as saying I like all of my fellow TNI collectors....

     

    Surely there is nothing going on this website that should create any ill will between any of the members.

     

    If I've offended anyone, then I apoligize for it.

     

     

    Thank you for that post.

     

     

     

    Although some of you didn't like or get along with him, please don't trash the guy now that he's not here, lacks taste if you ask me. How would you feel if you left for a while and then there was a "Where's so-and-so" thread and then people just started jumping on you and trashing you??? Most of the guys here that have said something negative about him, I've noticed have gotten into some heated arguments with some here in one way or another, and could see someone saying something negative about you if you were gone.. would you like that? How would it make you feel and if you came back, would you even want to post here? See? Serioulsy, I feel like I just lectured my 1st grader, lol.. come on guys, you can be better than that.

     

    Well Said! I don't post that much anymore, but I still surf daily.


  4. James Bond Jr., Gargoyles, Buck O Hare, Double Dragon (those stupid head dresses) and yes I will say it even though I am a huge collector of the line, Exo Squad. The Mech's were awesome but the action figures were very loose and although they had ball sockets and could be easily customized they were very loose and awkward looking.

     

    Some of the lines mentioned were just awful and some of them were great for the time. The Kenner Dark Knight collection IMO was a very good line with great gadgets and great likeness. It overproduced way to many Batman's but it had some great sculpts. Does anyone remember the Batman Forever Batcave, the line of figures was good and bad but the playset was huge and could be packed into it's self for storage. I'm not talking about Wayne Manor but the Batcave.

    Biker Mice from Mars and Bucky O'Hare were trying to run on the popularity of TMNT but could have been done so much better but as toys just fell flat.

     

    Robin Hood was a good line I thought as well, even if most of the playsets and vehicles are old Ewoks molds.


  5. I have so many great memories of playing with my toys as a kid. I played with Star Wars, G.I. Joe, Transformers, Thundercats, He-man and many other scattered figures mixed in. A-Team, Sky Commandos, Lone Ranger, COPS, Secret Wars, Rambo, DC Super Powers, The little gold colored die cast army guys, if they made it I had at least one figure from every toy line it seemed like. I was a really lucky kid who was very spoiled.

     

    I'll start with this memory I have of when we were taking a trip from Chicago, where I was raised, to Florida for a family trip. I had all the main characters of the Thundercats and was so into them. I wanted to bring them with me on the trip and my parents left me bring all of them but no vehicles. I was on my way to the airport when I started thinking about how they might not let me take them on in my carry on bag because I was worried they would make the metal detectors go off and that the airline security would take them away from me. Hey, I was a kid. I ended up crying to my mom for the whole ride about it as my Dad tried saying that they weren't going to take them. I of course wouldn't listen and when we got to the airport and my dad had to sit in the drop off lane moving all of my Thundercats into his suitcase. They all made it to Florida with me and the whole plane ride I wished they had been in my carry on with me so I could play with them on the flight.

     

    We spent a lot of time on the beach and I must have made 100 different Cat's lair sand castles and my figures got a lot of sand in there joints but it was one of my favorite trips to Florida and the family never even went near anywhere in Orlando.

     

    I have a lot of memories and this is a great topic. I will post more if It keeps going strong and anyone cares to read about my childhood memories. I have great memories and I also have my destructive ones as well. I had my pyro and firework years and then my eventual nostalgia years to collector years. I can even remember seeing a movie called The Boy Who Could Fly and I think it was a young Fred Savage who plays the main girls younger brother. He plays with GI Joes in the movie and has tons of the toys. He use to bury the fallen soldiers and I remember coming home from the movie and having a huge G.I. Joe battle and then buried the dead in the backyard. I tried unearthing them at a later time and could only find half of them. Did anyone else see this and if so did you do something similar?

  7. do whatever makes you happy. How much money do you really think your going to get for them. Some sure you'll fetch a few bucks for down the line but really how many people are still sitting on 1995 Power of the Force figures? Any one want a monkey face Leia or a Steroid Lando?


  8. I really would love to see the 25th style comeback for the other missed out anniversary figures, the POC figures continue for updated molds of classic characters and new characters. Then another line for Renegades. I would love a new Airtight, Footloose, a corrected version of Wet-Suit and Leatherneck. Since we actually got the mission to Brazil colors of Leatherneck with the Awe-Striker. With him coming out in the "corrected" colors for the fan club, I know we can cut him off the list though. So many figures I want to see redone and to be honest POC has pulled me back in just as I was about to give up on the newer lines.
