  1. I miss a soda from when I was a kid in the 80's early 90's that was called Walkabout soda. They had a kiwi fruit flavor that was just amazing! Back in the early 2000's there was a drink in Chicago called Cool Mountain Soda and it was kind of like Jones soda where they had many unique flavors like Blue Razz and Mango or pineapple. This was soda not juice. Those flavors and lime were great at parties for the ladies. We would add some Malibu to them and they chicks would drink them like water and get all messed up.
  2. If you need help, I am more than willing to help. I go to a few sites, but this one is my favorite and I really enjoy (as I call yo all here) the cast of characters.

  3. Some of the stuff I find I keep some of it sell on EBay. Again, I don't do this to make money but more to get the stuff out there to the fellow collectors who want it and to cover my costs. Doesn't matter if it's new in the stores or an old G.I. joe figure.

  4. Seriously, if you have a piece you are looking for, please feel free to help. I have never collected for wealth as I believe if you do you take the fun out of the Hobby. I am a former show seller, but again I did it for fun and to trade or get rid of things I no longer have any interest in. I love to go to estate sales, garage/yard/tag sales and buy up stuff to restore.

  5. Just here to make friends and get info from those who love the same hobby(s) that I do. I am a smart A$$ and I have been known to be an A$$ Hole but I always hear people out and the funny thing is I never look to hurt anyone. Always willing to help a fellow collector if I can, all you need do is ask. I have a wide variety of knowledge on most 80's type boys toys to the current mainstream toys.

  6. Storetrooper I don't have a problem with atheists or agnostics either.. But I also have a problem with people who speak down to or belittle people believe in God. I agree with what you said starting out! (Only that this nation was established as a Christian nation and not just a "Western God" one.) And I do understand how you feel about God and Jesus. I also don't believe in an "old man in the sky" and "dead people with wings." hahaha The God I believe in is beyond our understanding and reasoning as we are "limited beings." We are limited to the laws of this universe, this existenc
  7. I for one loved Public Enemies, I'm happy with it as is. I didn't like some of the ending with Toy Man (kid) but it was enjoyable to me. Not to mention the Score was epic! I am really looking forward to this!
  8. Statements like that, Tend to make all Christian's look bad. Good going little miss tolerant. i'm catholic. and i have a problem with tolerating atheists... i'm just that way, make fun of my god and you'll lose some teeth. thats how i am. I can appreciate your love for what you believe in but I don't understand how being a "hot head" justifies going against the teachings of what you believe in. I would never push how I feel on anyone, but I would explain myself as I did, while in a topic of discussion. I'm sorry you don't like me for how I feel. I can give you a list of reas
  9. The "have to get it now" thing use to be, but I have found it's more fun to wait to a line loses it steam, wait a few months or years and go back and get what I wanted later. I realized this when G.I. Joe vs Cobra came out. When they first came out I had to have every single one, then they started getting stale and the line died and no one cared anymore (so it seemed to me). I was missing a few pieces I wanted like Sgt. Airborne or a few vehicle drivers, that I wanted but didn't want the vehicle and at first I could not find any of them under $15 and by this time I was starting to focus on Mar
  10. I respect the fact that our pledge has "One Nation, Under God" even though I am a non-believer. This country was founded by a group of people who believed in God and opened our country to those of all religious, race and creed backgrounds. For that I respect the pledge. Now on the other hand, thou shall not kill and yet we killed off a lot of Native American Indians all in the selfish act of wanting land. Doesn't the Bible say something about not doing that? Yet we celebrate a holiday where we give thanks each year marking the day one tribe teamed up with a group of christian pilgrims to kill
  11. I'm excited for both vehicles I agree with all that has been said by others, to many people to quote. This will be a nice change and although I still hope for more redone original figures, I am all for new characters. IMO characters and vehicles is what the line is all about.
  12. I was really looking forward to this game until I played the demo, now I'm going to wait a little while and get it when it is on sale. I to have been playing through The Force unleashed on hard trying to finish out all the achievements.
  13. Many of these Joes do have good paint though and yo can tell which ones are good and which ones are going to need a good inspection by just flipping the card back. The ones with the stickers all seem to have some sort of sloppy paint but the ones without are good to go. Hope this helps!
  14. So he'll be used for spare parts or customs, meh $3, who cares. The funny thing is that his hose is better than the original that I got when the figure was first released.
  15. Some have reported that some of the figures have sloppy paint. This is very true on a few of the figures. I had to dig through the tripwires to find one with good chin paint, most of them looked like he had a creepy flesh toned beard rather than a helmet strap. Many of the BBQ's also had bad helmet paint and when I was looking for a good one and found it I totally missed how bad his boots were. Now I already have one, but I really liked this figure and bout him for photos and display scenes but I have attached pictures you can see for yourself.
  16. Thanks to this little note from Guitar Devil I went into a Family dollar store, which I have never been in before since usually I find that dollar store only have cheap crap. To some that may still be the case but for me it was a great find. I went last night and found these: and after finding all these and leaving behind a few Bazookas, Tripwires (to whom I only bought 1 of to make a custom that I had seen on here) and a bunch of Cobra Commander Battle Armors I ran out this morning to 3 other semi near family dollar locations and found these along with the rest of the cast + Ripper
  17. This was just posted here and these look amazing!!! Tron Legacy Toys I had no intention of buying these until I saw this. I liked the old toys but like most movie lines I thought this would be another bust, I am glad to say I was wrong!
  18. I never knew Snake Eyes came with that glider pack. Roadblock looks awesome as well! Thanks for the link!
  19. Lady Jaye is a just that...a lady
  20. No, but thanks for the info, I'll be on the look out now! I miss KB as well as I use to visit a KB outlet and a Toy Works outlet in Indiana on a regular basis when I lived in the Chicago area. Man I miss those stores, I would always find great deals.
  21. glad I wore my cup today!
  22. Just way to much money for me to spend on these, I originally started buying DCUC because they were $8 each when they came out. I sold mine a few months ago because it was just to much these days! I originally got into collecting figures because it was affordable and I liked the hunt for new figures and finding old ones at tag/garage sales or estate sales. I don't want to light up the price debate, but the most I would pay for these now more articulated smaller size figures is $5! Goldbugs collection makes me want to buy them but I just can't bring myself to do it!
  23. picked up 7 Neo-Viper Troops for that price today, thanks for the info.! I also got a reactive armor Duke for the body to do a head swap. Not a fan of the troopers much but for that price, who could pass it up!
  24. Jim Lee drawing of him worked best for me, but I'm a 90's style of drawing type of guy. In fact that may be the only thing other than Star Wars toys being relaunched (not that any of them were really that great) that was good about the 90's.
