  1. Thanks for the reviews and the pics - much appreciated! Can we see one of Outback without his flak jacket? I know it's the standard torso, but that's how I'm going to display mine - so he looks like a modern update of his ARAH figure.
  2. nah dude, it's an eclectic set of tokens, I think there's: Duke's dog tags Cobra Commander's helmet a VAMP or a vehicle like that I could be wrong, those announcements were made a few weeks/months ago with preview pics. Anyways, it's fairly random stuff - no miniture figures.
  3. Well you guys were lucky. The wife and I went to see Wolverine last week (a week after release) - theatre was still packed, and they showed all the upcoming summer blockbusters from June - August. The crowd cheered for Megan Fox for sure, and Terminiator Salvation got some air-time too, so did Star Trek and that Tarantino/Pitt flick about Nazi Germany or whatever. But grossly missing from the trailers was G.I. Joe - so f'n weird.
  4. do you want a terrordrome...what kind of question is that? OF COURSE I WANT A TERRORDROME And a real honest to goodness one, not the love-boat on wheels movie PIT!
  5. I still say the inventors of this mighty mugg nonesense missed the boat. These things should have been actual mugs/thermos, with the handles being the arms and the head/body cavity used to hold that sweet sweet coffee! no, seriously...
  6. I like to buy Toyfare as much as the next guy - for some enjoyable reading when I'm on my ummm throne. But what I don't like is the lack of coverage G.I. Joe gets. A few issues ago they had a one-pager on the cartoonist, and the issue with the AVAC on the cover barely had anything about G.I. Joe in it. Sure Baroness is big and bold on the cover, and the issue is themed "the year of G.I. Joe" but I bet we'll only get a half page spread with nothing new. I hope I'm proven wrong!
  7. haha Tom-1 if I'm reading your original post the way I think you intended it to come across - that was brilliantly done good fellow!
  8. My first G.I. Joe was Dusty in the summer of '85. I was aware of Joes thanks to my friends who had guys like Torpedo, Firefly, Spirit, Recondo, and the boring '82-'83 Original 13 @smilepunch@ But it was when my aunt visited for a holiday, she bought me my first Joe and I remember picking him out of an entire wall of carded Joes. We went to the beach that day and I promptly lost his bi-pod (which I wouldn't get back until 2000 as an adult collector getting back into the hobby!). It was great, the beach was a gigantic desert for my new desert trooper! I still have the original, all beat up and weathered down, but it's a badge of honor.
  9. well these "Rumoured" figures look like teh suck! So I'll stick to the 25th rehashes and maybe Resolute (still on the fence about that). Thanks for the linky DarthJoe, but it is in no way shape or form a confirmation on the movie figures we'll get!
  10. man Al, I've been a fan of your cusomizing skills for years (back when your customes used to fetch $30 hehe)! You're to G.I. Joe what the Four Horsemen are to DCUC/MOTUC, have you thought about applying to these companies? The Four Horsemen already have a 5th unofficial molder, but you could be the 6th Horseman!
  11. bah we're all adults here (mostly), and while it's irresponsible/irrational for some to yell and scream when a proto doesn't see the light of day, I think we all look forward to discussing SOMETHING about our hobby every day - afterall it is a forum right? I think leaked protos or lists generate discussion, whether good or bad - that's for the moderators to monitor. As a forum member, nothing is more disappointing that hitting your favourite fansites and not seeing anything new for days because the vendor refuses to let things out, or not seeing more posts/threads in forums. It really does erk me when I don't see new posts or topics to discuss, because there's nothing new to read! We all appreciate official confirmed news, but it's the crazy rumours that gets us excited! "Will Mindbender come out in wave 15? I thougth they said they wouldn't single-card him?! What's with another Red Star?!? I'm so excited about the possiblity of getting a Resolute Baroness!" <-- all that stuff I think adds to the hobby. So JayC to your original question, I personally just want to see new stuff because I take it with a grain of salt. Yes I'm upset that the Stinger and Outback waves are held back/cancalled whatever, but it's not going to affect my lifestyle, I've still got a wife to spend time with, online games to play, and mortgages to pay. We're talking toys here, not stock market investments.
  12. Boy did the inventors/designers of the mighty muggs franchise miss the boat or what - if these things could actually hold hot java like an actual mug they would be on to something!
  13. well umm, I might be stating the obvious here but I'd say (ignoring filecards) that the HISS Commander commands a battallion/fleet/group/squad/motorpool of HISS Drivers. We got the Driver single-carded which didn't make sense, and a HISS Commander with a HISS which also didn't make sense - but if we look back to '82 -'83, well the HISS did come with the red HISS Driver. And later on a blue HISS Driver was called "Rip-it" so the HISS Commander is probably a tribute to Rip-it, whether you consider him a named-cobra or another branch of legions, i.e. the Rip-it's it's up to your interpretation.
  14. oh and the other thing - I don't know how I ever managed to play with a handful of joes by myself as a kid. I remember one summer it rained so much that our yard was flooded and it was then I discovered the Warthog can float, piled up with Joes - Cobra was on the run in the "marshs" and it was a totally wild event for me. Now if I were to attempt a Cobra invasion of G.I. Joe headquarters, I would be totally frustrated with all the figures lieing down or leaning against something while I tend to others. Guess I didn't care about that as a kid.
