  1. I'm "All-In" for this Kickstarter! The figures look so great that they have inspired an interest in the Wild West that I never really had before. The figures are also compatible with the Marauder Task Force figures, so there will definitely be some head swaps between the two in my collection to add some more variety! Anyone who is a collector of 3.75" scale figures should get on board with this Kickstarter campaign - even if it's just one figure to help boost the funding. Chicken Fried Toys, Boss Fight, Marauder - they know what we want and are going out there and making it happen
  2. I am "All-In" for the Dime Novel Legends Kickstarter! I never would have thought I would be interested in Wild West era action figures, but these figures look so great that they have inspired an interest in the Old West. PLUS - they are designed by Boss Fight and build on the same structure as the Marauder Task Force figures. That means more heads for customization between the lines!
  3. I know our hopes have been crushed before with the Indiana Jones line, and while I don't know any more than anyone else here on the board, I see reason for hope. A commemorative type release of these figures would make a lot of sense. We know Hasbro already had tools made for Toht and Dietrich, and odds are that the motorcycle is the same as the one that came with the German solider from "Last Crusade" with some slight modifications and the sidecar added - the original release did have attachment points on the right side for a sidecar. Hasbro and Lucas have a long history of these
  4. Can anyone tell from the pictures we've seen, or has anyone been close enough to get a better look, what head is on the new Roadblock figure? From what I can see it doesn't look like the more animated looking head that we've seen on the Resolute prototype figures from China. But it also can't be the regular Roadblock head from the other 25th anniversary Roadblock figures because that head was too small to begin with and the new Roadblock sculpt is even bigger (according to reviews from people who snagged the prototypes) than the 25th Roadblock. Anybody know?
  5. When I think of GI Joe I still think of the opening narration from the cartoon show: G.I. Joe is the code name for America's daring, highly trained special mission force. Its purpose: to defend human freedom against COBRA, an evil organization determined to rule the world. My very first G.I Joe was a birthday present from my aunt in July of 1985. It was the Bridge Layer and Tollbooth, and to this day my parents tongue-in-cheek blame her for starting my collection. From that point on my brothers and I would amass a huge army of Joes and Cobras. My parents moved to a smaller house aft
  6. Hey everyone - i know that we've all struggled in finding the Temple of Doom figures, and so I wanted to help my fellow collector out with a website that I found after weeks of searching. Go to http://www.canyonwall.com/indianajones.html and you'll see all of the Temple of Doom figures as well as a few others from the line. Unfortunately the Temple Guard is sold out. I bought my set and then went back after they arrived (I wasn't going to believe the website actually had them in stock to make another order until I had them in my hands) to order more Temple Guards and they were out of
  7. I think Nemesis is rated just about where it belongs in the film series - some fans really hate it, some really like it, and most just kind of let it be. It just has way too many problems to really be given too much praise. The biggest problem is that the director didn't know anything about Star Trek. Sure they got some fancy screenwriter with some fancy credits to his name that claimed to be a fan, but in the end I think it did more harm than good. He was such a fan that he just recreated bits and pieces of other Star Trek movies and TV episodes and cobbled them together rather than ap
  8. I've gotten flamed for this before, but I think there is a mentality that you're not allowed to make a patriotic US war movie at any point in history after World War II. Everything set in the eras from Vietnam to the present is about incompetent and corrupt military leaders and politicians, and the only "heroes" are those who spend the whole movie philosophizing about pacifism, free will and the "real" meaning of freedom and liberty.
  9. I don't think anything can save this movie at this point. I know there's a lot of nay-sayers and doom and gloomers on the boards about it, and a lot of others who are saying to give it a chance and not to judge before we've seen it....... and while everyone can form their own opinion I think us nay-sayers have a lot to back up our fears. I think the accelerator suits are the coup de grâce that puts the movie over the top beyond the point of redemption for many of us. Why pay homage to Sigma Six (if that's even the case) that was a part of the GI Joe mythos for about 3 years and completel
  10. The costume department had designed all new uniforms for the TNG crew, but then the producers/directors (someone) decided it would be too much change and decided not to go forward on those new uniforms. But, Playmates Toys went into production of their Generations figures before the studio decided not to change things, so that's where the odd looking Generations figures come from. That's what the new uniforms were supposed to look like. The DS9 jumpsuits make perfect sense from a TV production/marketing standpoint in that they wanted the DS9 crew to look different from the TNG crew when
  11. I may be wrong or misremembering where I saw it, but I thought that at some point it was described that Qui Gon's views on "the living force" were a bit different from the Jedi mainstream. It could stand to reason that within the Star Wars universe there are a variety of dogmatic interpretations of the force just as there are different denominations or sects within the major religions on Earth. Just think about it... all Christians have the same basic beliefs, but the specific denominations of Catholics, Baptists, Methodists, etc. all have their own individual dogmas and teachings that
  12. Where is the belt and holster combination from? I need some of those!

    Yup... pulled the Snake Eyes knife sheath off, cut the Duke leg's useless holster off, dremmeled 'em both down and glued the sheath in place.

    I've seen a few people with a fairly consistent combination of parts to create a Resolute Flint figure, and while I was inspired by those I also wanted to do something a bit different. One big thing is that I didn't want to use the actual Flint figure head because the beret just seemed out of place. When I saw the TRU Greenshirts battle pack I knew that the comic pack Hawk head was exactly what I was looking for in order to get the proper look for how I envisioned a modern realistic looking covert Flint. I also didn't want to use the Resolute Duke elbow pads the way I had see

    Like many others I realized after having it in hand just how cool the Resolute Duke figure was. That being said, the lack of a functional holster is one of those little things that kept this figure from being perfect. So, I picked up another one to "fix". The holster, HK pistol, and leg pouch were stolen from a knock-off SWAT figure I had lying around.
