  1. I AM SELLING MY ENTIRE GI JOE COLLECTION. For those of you that know me...you know I had a lot and now it's time for it to go! Here are the auctions thus far, I will be adding more vintage and modern stuff during THIS week!!! Thank you! http://search.ebay.com/_W0QQsassZdmital
  2. I work too so it's tough to get these when they pop up. If anyone has any extras that they're willing to sell. I am definitely interested, PLEASE CONTACT ME! Or maybe I'll trade for a Wave 1 Snake-Eyes w/ Black Timber....hmmmmmmm.....
  4. The Dark Knight *new* suit Batman figure is NOT a final product. Note the disclaimer at the bottom mentioning that the product is NOT final and it is pending licensor approval as well. Hot Toys is indeed redoing the original Batman Begins suit for TWO reasons. 1) Yes, the first figure was crummy and definitely sub-par compared to the quality that Hot Toys does now. Obviously now they have a second shot at it and are knocking it out of the park with a home run. This is their way of redeeming themselves since the company's quality and work has improved ten-fold since their original re
  5. Well no doubt about that ARROW. If I didn't have the knowledge and insight into the 1:6 high-end figure field that I had then I probably would've balked at the price as well. Like I mentioned before, that focus is like seeing a far, distant island from TNI. You can see it, you sometimes hear about it, but you really don't know what it's about until you're there and you can study it a little bit more. Speaking of which, I'm only 25 but I've been able to afford my high-end stuff by actually getting rid of a lot of my previous stuff (aside from SOME GI Joe stuff, I also had other "retai
  6. I've been a 1/6th scale collector since the mid 80's, I have several hundred figures in my collection, and I have paid attention to the trends and offerings over the years even though I collect far less than I used to. I've been involved in many of the on-line 1/6th scale communities since 1995, and TNI isn't one I count amongst them. The stuff that Sideshow is producing, in terms of unit numbers is single-digit percentages compared to what Hasbro, Mattel, 21C, Formative and a few others were making just under a decade ago. They profit because they make enough to address a niche audience,
  7. Yes, and no. Yes, in that there's more being offered than that by Hasbro and Mattel--who are not offering much in 1/6th outside of Barbie in Mattel's case these days. No, in that the 1/6th scale realm has ( or is) grown by leaps and bounds--which is not the case. 1/6th has been on a steady decline since the year 2000. All of the major players have cut back their releases, Dragon, BBi, Dragon in Dreams, 21C etc--and some, like 21C have all but dropped out of the 1/6th game ( except for their weapons sets). Sideshow has maintained a presence in collectible specialty stores by focus on a ve
  8. A lot of you are probably unfamiliar with the 12'' figure field. It is not all about Hasbro and what Mattel and all them put out there. The 12'' figure realm has grown by leaps and bounds in popularity, detail and licenses thanks to companies like Hot Toys, Sideshow and Medicom. Take a look at all those products... Hot Toys' figures retail between $99-$150 on average with a few rare higher-priced piece (1:6 scale Power Loader) and $150 is a common price for Medicom figures. Sideshow was cheap before...but they won't be anymore. Keep in mind that the body designs underneath the suit
  9. Why is Hasbro so CRAZY IN LOVE with Heavy Duty? They've been pushing this guy hardcore ever since JvC's initial run in early 2000. Replacing my favorite black, rhyme-talkin', heavy gunner ROADBLOCK!!!! Ain't no way!!! @grumpy@ Now we know Hasbro has the name again since Roadblock showed up in Spytroops...yet they STILL push Heavy Duty on us and are trying to force out Roadblock! And now Heavy Duty is in the movie taking Roadblock's place? WTF, man? We had Heavy Duty in JvC, we had Heavy Duty in Spytroops (I don't care if I'm wrong, he was there somewhere!!!!), we had him multipl
  10. Congratz on your find! I don't blame you on taking as much as you could. I would've!!! Like it or not, collecting is a selfish hobby with "me,me, and me" before anyone else! Where are you in Virginia? I'm in Northern Virginia, if you're around there...which Wal-Mart was this at?
  11. Mattel never learns their lesson.....they should cut all this Chase Variant bullcrap out.
  12. Snake-Eyes look great except for the ugly-ass molded lips....WTF? He can't even speak. It's like the nipples on Batman...they're there for NO REASON. Baroness and Storm Shadow look awesome. I dig the RELOADED Stormy look...but I hope he wears a white mask during the movie at one point. Where's the COBRA logo? I hope it eventually pops up in the movie! I UNDERSTAND the idea behind the uniform costumes but come on... they could've done SOMETHING to make them unique to the character. Much like the X-Men movie and even Sigma Six...the costumes all were similar but the characters each had
  13. GREAT WORK TOM!!!!!! I dig them buddy and it has a very unique flair to them that only you can pull off.
  14. The word going around is two things....Sideshow will either show their first GI Joe figure at SDCC.....SDCC is their big event because its right in their back yard (they're located in California too) and they also hold "on-location" pre-orders for the people there that want stuff. However, to generate interest...Hasbro MAY request for them to show something at the Joecon, but that would be because Hasbro wants them to...not Sideshow. All odds point to SDCC.
