Newbie (1/14)



  1. I have one and was just wondering how rare it is and what do you think the value of it would be?
  2. Acutually the correct number is PSX 700-1 @hammerhead# Come on, get it right!!!
  3. You seem mildly obsessed. @smilepunch@ Tom I guess I am, but no more than the Flint's sleeves crowd. Crimson Guards are my thing and it's a mistake I wish they would fix. Why have it one way for 20+ years then change it on the tribute line? If it ain't broke then don't fix it.
  4. The night watch and red ninja sets aren't the same as what came before and no one cared. They will look sharp in the real crimson.
  5. They are a weird color, not crimson but more of an orangish rust color. The 80's color of crimson represents them much better and was one of the key design elements that made these guys stand out. That is what this line is about isn't it, Updating the classic 80's looks. The current ones are alright I would just like to see them release a better product. Since TRU sets are repaints, this is the perfect time. I love the sculpt and would just like to see the figure look it's best before all you can find are black and python versions.
  6. Here is what I would like to see from the TRU Crimson Guard troop builder set A return to the classic 1985 color (dark blood red) Maybe silver or dark gray face masks this time around. A kitbashed Crimson Guard Immortal or possibly a crimson viper (cv X2, cg x2, and cgi x1) Tomax, Xamot, Firefly, and Baroness need not apply. Here is a custom a guy did of the 25th CG in 80's colors. I think it looks far better than the current one.
  7. My biggest complaint is the fact that the Crimson Guard is a brownish red-orange earth tone and not the orginal Crimson color. Hasbro, rerelease the CG in the correct 1985 colors !!!!!!!!!!
  8. Someone should do a photoshop comparison of the current 25th Crimson Guard and one done in the correct deep dark red so everyone and see what I'm talking about. I saw one a few months back and it looked awesome. I just can't get down with the faded earthtoned looking one.
  9. the original Snow Job is pure white, not a dirty white. the first 25th Snake Eyes was gray, but the original black. Same with Destro. 25th Storm Shadow isn't pure white, the Cobra Officer has knee pads, etc. etc. deviation from the classic colors seems to be pretty norm for the 25th, so you don't really have ground to stand on with that argument. not to mention that the DTC CG was a darker red as well, and so were the VvV RAH sculpt CG's, so it isn't as if this is the first CG to have a new hue of red. if you are displaying the 25th CG's with vintage CG's and hoping that they match, I am certain the most glaring difference between them isn't the different shades of red. They won't match, well I'll be damned. There has been a pure white Storm Shadow in the comic pack, and an all black snake eyes in wave 5. The DTC Crimson Guard retained half of the orginal color, and that figure was pretty much a turd. What I'm saying is the 25th CG wouls look a hell of a lot better in the orginal color instead of orangish-red. Since Hasbro loves a repaint maybe they can make this happen.
  10. It's just the figure would look way better in the orginal crimson color. Why maintain the consistancy for 20+ years then turn anound on the tribute lines and make it a rusty color? What sense does that make? All the other figures have their classic looks and colors, it just bugs the hell out of me because I am a huge Crimson Guard fan and this isn't a crimson guard. I would be happy as hell and really stock up on them if it was corrected. That is what I wanted to do since day 1. As it stands I will just sit on my 4 and use the TRU CG's. It's just a big letdown. Remember when the CAT2 came out and eveyone was like WTF, An orange tank and blue Crimson Guard?
  11. OK, I just got some 25th CG's and the Tomax & Xamot comic packs. I decided to set up a little Crimson Guard scene and discovered that the new Crimson Guards are the wrong color. How did this get by hasbro? I mean all the rest of my "crimson family" (85, 91, Con 02, Crimson Sabotage, Crimson Guard Force, and CCC Pilots) all share the same color, then you get to the 25th and they are like a terra cotta orangish color - NOT CRIMSON!!! It seems that this is a major detail that was just overlooked. One of the reasons that figure was such a fan fav was the deep dark blood red and silver highlights. That is what really made that figure sand out as badass. The new ones just look washed out and crappy, like they have been in the sun for 10 years. Is there any way to petition Hasbro to rerelease them in the correct color?
