  1. Good grief.....Really? Anger over a toy! I spoke with someone about the origins of the picture/figure. I dont name drop, or claim to have "people" or "contacts" so take this as you will. Anyways, didnt mean to start some huge flame here. If you want it to be a custom, then its a custom. lol
  2. Not a custom, Did some research on it. Its an official figure produced by Hasbro. It is set to be released in a Resolute comic pack "Arctic Scarlett vs. Cobra Commander" It is indeed a homage to the AF Quarrel figure as well. Not sure if this will be considered the Reso figure, or if CC will though. But it is indeed an official figure.

  4. Wonder what the big deal is? We've seen them all before this already? @hmmm@ Now im not defending HT here, but the GIJCC (where these pics originated from) gets crazy upset when people use their pics, and cause a lot of unnecessary problems sometimes. yeah..yeah..yeah! Because we all know how important it is, for the privileged and ENTITLED members of a toy collecting community to have their sense of "extra special" standing within it..be STROKED! These are the kinds of issues that crack me up sometimes, with regards to my fellow collectors and those that feed off our eccentric, obsessive and neurotic mentalities. Maybe I just don't see the importance in it, or take it so serious as others, but GEEEESH! PAYING for "privilege" gets a little too political for me and I LOVE politics, but not when it comes to G.I.Joe toys and information about them. btw..this ISN'T aimed at you HC, just the issue of which you spoke. No man, i fully agree. I dont pay for that, no way. i mean why? within a day of the release its on the net anyways lol. Common now, anyone that knows me, or knows my site knows its all about the community.

Regardless of that, i really dig these packs. I cant wait to get my hands on them!
  6. Yeah i will admit that CLAW sucks. I mean, its just a completely lazy piece. The original one was great! Also when did a Strato-Viper fly a claw?? wasnt the whole point of them to be the best of the best and fly at higher altitudes than anyone other pilot? Lame-O
  7. GeneralsJoes just put this up. The wave 5 vehicles look cool. http://generalsjoes.com/2009/04/08/wave-5-...-shots-on-ebay/ http://www.theterrordrome.com/forums/viewt...;p=23116#p23116
  8. I like the gunship, the rest just looks kind of lame
  9. Caught these on ACToys http://www.actoys.net/bbs/read.php?tid=350495 http://www.theterrordrome.com/forums/viewt...;p=23074#p23074
  10. Caught these on ACToys this morning. Zartan is pretty generic, but i love that Snake Eyes http://www.actoys.net/bbs/read.php?tid=350049 http://www.theterrordrome.com/forums/viewt...=136&t=2408
  11. Found this while surfing TaoBao. I really like it, but im a fan of the 12" line. TaoBoa Auction 12" Crimson Guard http://www.theterrordrome.com/forums/viewt...f=28&t=2410
  12. Saw these today on TaoBao. Clear goggles, and black goggles.
  13. maybe these will help? Found them on Ebay. Cant we all just get along! #US1#
  14. I didnt form any opinions, i was just pointing out the fact that there have been 3 different figures listed. Thought it was an interesting piece of info.
  15. I was scoping out the new CC figures on ebay and noticed 3 different variations of the figures. (wheres the face palm when you need it?) One has a gray lab coat, a clear mask, and breathing tubes. One has a black lab coat, a bit of silver paint on the mask, and NO breathing tubes. One has a black lab coat, silver paint mas, AND breathing tubes. NOW, i know you skeptics out there are saying "its the glare" Well i did some investigating and talked to my people who know people and received confirmation that these are legit variations. Apparently a running production change was made to correspond with the look of the movie character more. (If you notice on the card art CC has no tubes and a black jacket ) At first i thought maybe it was a package error on the one with the black jacket and no tubes, but those loose images of CC popped up while the ebay auction was still active, so there are obviously more that 1 of these out there. I also found out that these variations are sought after in the Hong Kong area and fetching a pretty penny over there. Now that this 3rd version has popped up though, im going to need to do a bit more snooping to see whats up with it. Updated: Found 2 more variations today. This time we have an ice viper with clear goggles, and one with black goggles. http://www.theterrordrome.com/forums/viewt...=136&t=2311
  16. Um ok. im talking sculpts here. But ok, didnt mean to offend you or the guy searching for minor color variations.
  17. Ah thats my bad. Its the 5 pack body with the single packs head.
  18. Not quite. Storm Shadow doesn't have the gray that the new 5 pack did, and flint doesn't have that horse head with some colour variations as well. Other than that thier the same, minor changes I know but still. I dont count minor color change as a new figure. The Flint in the 5 pack is the same one we get in the HoH pack, i have seen it.
  19. There are actually 2 versions of this figure. One that resembles that Combat hero pic, and then the one we see loose.
  20. These figures have all been released in some form already. The only "New" figures your getting here are the battle damaged BAT, and Firefly but its really only new accessories and/or colors. The Zartan is the same, he just has some weathering. I also thing he uses the 5 pack head. These are good if you didnt collect and of the CP's or multi packs, or if you want those figures on a single card. Personally, i dont collect anything but the singles so these are all a BONUS to me. So, to answer your question of "do you have them already" Maybe Commando snake eyes = wave 5 commando snake eyes SE w/ Timber = New 5 Pack Snake Eyes BeachHead = Comic Pack Beachhead Storm Shadow = New 5 pack Stomr Shadow Flint = New 5 pack Flint Viper = New 5 Pack Viper Crimson Guard = Fred Comic Pack Figure Zartan = Mix of Single & 5 Pack figure
  21. Isnt that the point of the character?? his face is burned so he wears a mask? Actually, we don't know till we see the movie, right? I actually thinkt hey were trying to hard to make him "weird". If a dude had some kind of facial deformity, why wouldn't he cover it up? And, no, I don't consider that "mask" covering it up when so much "skin" is showing. Various depictions of Dr. Doom had him as hideously scarred about the face, but the only thing showing was aroud his eyes through the eye holes of his mask, not like this. I think the purpose of the mask is some sort of burn repair device. I dont think it is used to "hide" his burned face. I mean the movie is called "Rise of Cobra". Its showing where the characters came from. So i assume that when/if they make a sequel we will not see him in this mask anymore. What i hope is that he will put the nanites on his face and they will form the chrome mask we are are used to. Maybe he even wears a hood until he does that?? I guess time will tell. All i know is everyone needs to not be so critical on the changes that were made and just enjoy it as a fun action flic.
