  1. Hi all,

     

    Here is another one of my dios I am working on "Dr Mindbenders lab".

    Hopefully this will slot right into the large Cobra Complex I am designing!

    Anyhow...here are the pics!

  2. Hi all,

    Here are some of the latest photos on my Pitt diorama. I have done a little more, when I have gotten the time, over the last few weeks.

    It`s getting there...

     

    Hope you enjoy!

  3. Good news!

     

    The guy emailed me back and said he'd thought I'd appreciate the comics :)

    The cool thing is that one of them is the actual issue #95 that my letter to POSTBOX THE PITT was printed too, back in 1989.

  4. I just recieved an Ebay auction that I won for the SGT Savage figure with the free video. I ordered it cause it was really cheap (£2)and I always wanted to see the cartoon (I read Flint & Lady Jaye are in it).

    It arrived and it turned out the cartoon is dubbed in Spanish! D'oh!

     

    BUT....

     

    I wanted to share my joy as the seller DID included 10 issues of the Marvel comic series including Special Missions, Order Of Battle and a Yearbook!!

     

    This is quite unexpected but I keep thinking it`s someone elses winning that was sent to me too, by accident.

    I`ve emailed the seller to let him know.....but I`m gonna read all the issues as fast as I can, just incase hehe

     

    Anyone else see this cartoon?

     

    Cheers,

    Decky Hedrock.

  5. I am extremley impressed by everything on offer at the Con (except the Heavy Weapons Team...I`ll give that a miss)!

     

    I`ll be buying Barrel Roll, Major Bludd, Range Viper, Salvo etc etc...I personal think are amazing! Especially for frankenjoes.

    A great throw back to the early figures (Flash, Grandslam) that used the same parts to cut costs originally. I think this works for the DTC line!

     

    The vehicles are extremely cool too. Nice homage to Aliens, the HISS rocks and the ROCC is a great concept with loads of play value.

     

    I really think Hasbro finally got this right! They have been listening.

     

    Now if Hasbro UK would sell these figures online, I`d be happier!

  6. I converted my attic last autumn and I started building my Cobra Temple dio and then the Pitt HAD to be built because my Joes were taking up so much room on the other side of the room!

    I also have my Star Wars "Prime Outpost" dio in the middle of the floor :)

     

    My actual plan is to make various sections of my roofspace a diorama. I am currently drawing up plans for the Cobra base....which the Temple will be beside. It`s looking something like a multilevel fortress, about the same size as the Pitt, atm.

    I`m designing it modular so Dr Mindbenders lab etc can just slot into the various sections easily when finished.

     

    revSears: reciepe for Beachhead = JvC Beachead head, Sgt Torpedo everything else and Spytroops Destro belt pouches, cut off and stuck on the chest.

     

    I can`t remember the dimensions of this Pitt off-hand but it`s something like:

     

    36"x 98" x 32" (Height, Length and Depth).

     

    BTW, How do I edit the title so I can let you know when more pics are added?

  7. Hi all,

    I just thought I`d drop a mail with my latest diorama (Work In Progress) of my Pit.

     

    overall.jpg

     

    It`s going to be 3 levels:

     

    Top - Outdoor, sandy desert like entrance.

     

    pit1.jpg

    pit9.jpg

     

     

    Middle - Motorpool, Elevators, Medivac, Communications

     

    pit4.jpg

    Elevator with Medivac Room in behind.

     

    pit2.jpg

    Fast Vehicle stowage, this will have stairs to the above level etc

     

    pit8.jpg

    Here you can see the front of the Communications Room

     

    pit3.jpg

    The main Lift....got this idea from GI Joe comic (Star Viper infiltrates the Pit)

     

    pit5.jpg

    Heavy Vehicles and motor bikes in the corner...

     

    pit6.jpg

    Full frontal on the Communications Room, Mech Storage. The Comm Room is detactable and the front comes off to access the computers etc

     

    pit7.jpg

    And thats that so far....

     

     

    Bottom - Marina, docks, helipads

     

    I am also going to do a runway/airstrip to joint onto this, but one thing at a time :)

     

     

    Webpage:

    I`ll be putting more up when I get time:

     

    Cobra Temple, Cobra Communications Room, Mindbenders Lab & Scapels Surgery.

    I hope to get this all running in my new Diorama site!

     

    Hoe you enjoy,

    Decky Hedrock.

  8. Hi ya,

     

    Just a wee note to the UK fans that my local Poundstretcher has the Piranna Attack Boat in stock for £5. They also had the BTR sets around Christmas.

     

    Also the Irish toy store Smyths has both the Patriot Grizzly & Crimson Command Coptor for £9.99 each!!

     

    Keep an eye out as there may be more New Joe stuff in other UK stores...

     

    Cheers,

    Decky Hedrock.

  9. Hi all,

    I`ve been slow in making my dio and updating Deckys Diorama-rama, but I`ve moved home and have a new Joe room that I`m currently working on.

    Anyhow, here`s a sneak peek at my latest creation my Cobra Temple dio which is gonna be on a Cobra Island dio (so this is just one part of it).

    It`s not finished yet and still needs a lot more detailing etc.

    I have working doorway, computer terminals, throne room, communications room and a few other things as you can see. It`s taken me about 2 months to throw together, this far. Here it is:

     

    temple.jpg

    http://photobucket.com/albums/v215/hedrock/temple.jpg

     

    I hope you like!! I should have it finsihed in the next few weeks.

     

    It`s made from Foamcore!!

  10. I gots me one of those badboy 'Heavy Assault Boats'!!

    These babies ROCK! The detail is prett damn good.

     

    Comes with a load of accessories (floatation devices, floating rings etc, army locker, guns, diving equipment, powered torpedo thing a guy can hang onto) and a big ol'gun station (which is actually removable!!).

     

    I don`t have any pics yet as my camera has no batteries, atm. Can`t wait to take some pics and get some Joes onboard.

     

    It's also pretty BIG, slightly bigger than the Moray (altho I haven`t compared yet). I'm gonna have it that it's a modified Moray that the Joes caputured and changed into a Heavy Assualt Boat.

     

    I'm VERY impressed with this. Oh and underneath has two wheels that make it 'bob' when rolling across the floor....just like the Cobra Mantis did.

    Yes, and it says on the box that it floats

     

    8.5/10

  11. Hi all,

    I just found a TON of these babies today in a local store (More Store....UK eqivalent of a Dollar Tree). These look pretty damn cool, altho I haven`t picked one up yet.

    Slightly chunkier than a Rattler and it has a load of light/sound buttons. Comes with two figures also. I was looking for the Attack boat (Moray styled one) but that wasnt there. It was £12.99, which is GREAT value for something like this. These are the same stores that are selling the GI Joe excess from Hasbro UK at cheap prices.

    Anyone else have luck finding this?
