  1. JayC, got my phone number? If not, PM me! You need to save Tazz and myself a seat... -Kevin
  2. What you really should be looking for is the guy in the middle of the crowd with the pink shirt one. He's the coolest. -Kevin
  3. First time I looked at that Hard Top. Why have you not painted one red and called it Lifeline yet? Doc needs help saving lives... -Kevin
  4. Yeah.. the recent star wars vintage VOTC star wars bubbles.. Sounds good about the cases being released by hasbro.. I'll have to keep an eye out for them. Monday, July 21. Hasbrotoyshop.com = My prediction! (Let's see if I'm psychic!) -Kevin
  5. No real reason to try. Hasbro is going to be releasing some Joe cases soon enough. -Kevin
  6. God yes! I loved all of the Brandon Jerwa stuff. -Kevin
  7. Are you seriously trying to say Joe fans aren't cheap? Transformers fans are paying almost twice as much for a single toy. Star Wars fans (that I know) buy everything off the shelf many times over as well as following the books, film(s) including Clone Wars, comics, posters, "coins," statues and busts and ARMY BUILDING. Joe fans? "I'll wait for it to go on clearance." Out of the three properties (TF, SW, Joe) we are the smallest fan base. The GIJCC was even mentioning this at the club roundtable, our numbers are almost even (they've had TF for three years, Joe for 10+). Look at this thread. Not that everyone here is making any invalid arguements but WE ARE A CHEAP COMMUNITY. How many people have seen someone claim they won't pay more than "15 for a loose US figure, 25 for a loose international" or something along those lines? Instead of buying a figure when we (the "community") see it, we look at the price tag, say "meh" or "fail," and complain when we don't see the figure at one of the cheaper stores later. -Kevin
  8. Yeah, I realize that TRU carries ONLY toys, so it's probably no big ordeal for them to PUSH the "exclusive" items out there on their shelves, (makes since to me) even to the extent of not carrying as much of the main line stuff in it's place, but hey, if it's ONLY available there and no where else, I'd rather see them do it that way. I guess this is tying in with the other exclusive rant topic of darthhenning's, but it was rather nice to see that TRU did a RESTOCK of the items they carry of G.I.Joe that are their personal exclusives, which makes me feel good that the other exclusive items they'll be carrying will be available to me, even over a longer amount a TIME. If i happen to miss the FIRST load of'em, I feel confident there'll be more. Not the case with the Target exclusives and why I CRINGE at the news of their getting MORE...especially of the vehicles, which is why they SUCK here in my territory, here in the backward-ass COW town of Columbus Ohio, the barren wasteland of few Joe fans.....I guess? Have you ever thought of visiting the Johio website? It's mainly Ohio collectors and they've all been helped each other our regularly. Not to drag you away from TNI, but Johio.org... Cmdrinchief, Tazzman, GGPike and I all post there. (Not sure who else from TNI posts there.) -Kevin
  9. I heard it was Tazzman... He hits the K-Mart in Goleta, and makes his way down through Ventura County... -Kevin
  10. Ran into 4 cases (yes, four of each) of the Ranking Officer packs, 3 Red Ninja packs, and 2 Night Watch packs at TRU. -Kevin
  11. See, I make that entire list, except for the handle! -Kevin
  12. Glad to see someone does! I've always been about half AFRAID to mention i thought it was kinda cool, and I can't even say "as a kid" because I was 24 at the time. @loll@ I never saw it until it was being aired on TV in five-part segments. I still watch it anytime I am itching for some G.I.Joe to watch. And right after I finish it, I sit down and watch Operation Dragonfire. Tom'll tell you how much I like that baby. -Kevin
  13. Tell me bout it. Theres always some thing to #$#@# bout. I guess toy prices is on of em. No really it is. I don't even have to pay for em most of the time anyway cause at my age I still live with my parents and my mom works at Target, so. But that also means I can't get figs as much as I could if I had a car. Thats another thing for ME to complain about. But still, G.I.Joes should not be more than 7 bucks. Their those kind of figures you just pick up and you got em and easy to collect. But I remember seeing them being over $10.00 before at a Target so that had to be a mistake. Eh. Hey, could be worse... You could have a car, be my age, and still live at home with the parents! (Which, incase you're wondering, only sucks when it comes to bringing girls home) -Kevin
  14. Not sure how you came to that conclusion. I do like both cartoons. And let me also state, since this'll probably insence you more, I REALLY liked the movie. -Kevin
  15. Easily. While I enjoyed Hama's Frontline arc, when I read through the Marvel run, I think it stinks. Might be because it's been 15+ years since it originally ended, and technology has advanced, etc. etc but it just doesn't do it for me. And none of the deaths in comics ever bothered me. Has no bearing on what I do with my toys, just what the story I read includes. -Kevin
  16. Considering that they liked what IDW did with Transformers, they're probably very willing to give him a chance to do "his way" aslong as he uses that specific core cast. IDW will be doing a seperate movie-comic-line as well, so Hama's book won't be impacted much by this. I personally dislike the Marvel run and enjoyed the DDP run. -Kevin
  17. Don't worry, the DVD packs aren't scheduled for release until August! -Kevin
  18. A case of Target exclusives was one of each item btw... So, if one person sees them, and wants them, that's one case gone. If one person wants one of each to keep sealed and one of each to open, that's two cases gone. In my case, I ended up with three full cases, and was evil and took five more hiss tanks. -Kevin
  19. Your birdie is awesomely correct. -Kevin
  20. Since I know the file card is really difficult to read, I took the liberty of writing it all down here for your viewing pleasure. And finally, a note about ViperCon:
  21. The title is very appropriate. Arrow, not everyone has internet access to know this. I'm very happy to discount all of the opinions of the people who think this movie will be terrible just because it's not an exact replication of RAH. I'm avoiding as much movie-give-aways as possible so that I'm suprised going into the movie, the same way I was with TF. The only difference is that I can't avoid seeing headlines here like I was able to do with Transformers. -Kevin
  22. Chazz will be going. He's staying with George and I.
  23. My only concern is the IG destro cape! Unless there's black IG Destros out there with the cap not covering half their body. -Kevin
  24. They do not look bad. That's for sure! The bad news is I'll be buying two of the NE/Falcon, and CC/Tripwire, and have to buy six of the Destro/IG! -Kevin
  25. It was originally announced as the movie set, and not a Best-of. I too would have preeferred a movie set. -Kevin
