  1. That is a very cool looking figure. I check Amazon periodically but haven't seen him back up yet.
  2. I don't know if he's still hard to find or not, but this is the first time I've seen him available.
  3. Cool figure. So we have gotten all the figures on the promo poster, plus Barbecue and Breaker. I'm looking forward to seeing the promo poster for the next block of figures. Hasbro has really hit a home run with GI Joe.
  4. Not that I know what they are. I'm just assuming because I'm not seeing any sold out notices on the movie line. The Classified line is hard to get. There are high prices on the secondary market which only have a marginal, indirect benefit to Hasbro and retailers. They don't receive another dime no matter what they sell at on Ebay. There appears to be more demand for the Classified line. That could be illusory because of different distribution numbers, but I doubt it. I've read some retailers won't carry a line unless there is a TV or movie tie-in. That's the wrong criteria for a successful business. They have to go where the demand is. Hopefully this line doesn't stay a Target exclusive for long. I'm glad they found a retailer but this line deserves to be expanded.
  5. If they have Clutch in a similar outfit with the original VAMP, I will totally buy it.
  6. That is a great looking Snake Eyes. I can't believe the wolf comes with an extra head. This is really an impressive line.
  7. I don't even know why I have this Hasbro Pulse membership. I log in a couple of hours after getting notice of special member only figures being available and they're sold out.
  8. Is "counterpart" the new word for side-kick?
  9. That Timber is really cool. This whole line is pretty impressive. Hopefully the figures are more readily available in the near future.
  10. We're getting a VAMP?? That is mighty cool. I hope that means we're getting Clutch for a driver. - Ah, never mind. It's just some disappointing, not to scale, remote control vehicle. Hey Hasbro. I want a to scale VAMP w/ Clutch in the classic greens.
  11. I like the esthetic of the line but the proportions seem off. They all have pin heads, the arms are too long. This one needs to go back to the design table.
  12. I don't watch the show, but that is a pretty cool looking outfit.
  13. I doubt the CEO of Hasbro is pulling the figures and scalping them, but the kid working in the warehouse might be.
  14. As much as I hate to kvetch, as a long time fan of Joe I am very frustrated by this latest rendition of the figures. They're cool. I like the designs. I like the scale. The lack of availability of figures I want is silly. I want to buy that Firefly and it is not available. I want the Baroness but I'm not paying hundreds of dollars to scalpers. Hopefully Hasbro figures out to get supply to meet the demand.
  15. That is just silly. I appreciate Hasbro might be in a bit of a bind getting these to retailers since there isn't much media tie-in to justify stores carrying a line. but the exclusive thing with Target isn't working for a lot of buyers. They need to have the figures available with online merchants as well. If they need to give Target exclusives to make the line work then Target should just be getting variants. Baroness and Major Bludd are just too significant to the property to not make them readily available to customers. Maybe now that there's a movie things will ease up.
  16. McFarlane has really been pumping these out. I'm guessing he's been working on these for awhile. He must have shown the designs to DC as a pitch. They are pretty impressive. He's lucky The Joker was so well received. DC may not have gone with these otherwise. Just a guess.
  17. Well that sucks donkey balls. Bludd was one of the figures I most wanted. Hopefully BBTS gets a few. I've got one Target near me and I've never seen an exclusive there.
  18. Great photoshoot! Using the TMNT badguys as Adam West Batman style goons was a super idea!
  19. I really hope this isn't another sucky Target exclusive. I absolutely will be buying this figure and I don't want to pay scalper prices for it, That's just silly. I might wait to see if BBTS gets it. If so, that's where I'll buy it, clicking through Jay's site, of course.
  20. This is very interesting news. I've been a RAH fan from the beginning. Lady Jaye is a character with a lot of potential. This format could allow for some very cool Jack Ryan type spy thing. The movies were a little too Joel Schumacher. A series like this could allow for some real character development which in turn make a big event movie feel more grounded. I didn't watch Carnival Row but I've heard people say positive things. I will definitely be checking it out.
