  1. Found it at TRU the other day for $42.99. Definitely worth it. I heard there are only 2 per case; I got the only one there, so I suppose someone else got one too. My Target also has Joes clearanced, but it's all mostly Wave 1 stuff. I ordered Wave 3.5 online; it's too bad that Wave 4 has refreshes since it means all the online retailers are jacking up prices on the new figures. Oh well, maybe luck will be on our side and they make it to retail.
  2. What a disappointment. All the photos, interviews, the social game, toys, etc leading up to this and now the rug gets pulled. It's hard to believe it could be because the movie's a stinker, but this surely doesn't help its prospects at all. All the momentum and hype is lost and now this puts GI Joe as a toy brand in a really sucky position. I'm thinking the shelves will be bare for a LONG time, or else they'll be clogged with wave 1 of the movie line.
  3. Ditto what some others have said. Screw-in hooks and fishing line work great. Here are some pics from different incarnations of my Joe room.
  4. It'll set you back $250 or $270 for the exclusive (w/ camo Zartan)
  5. Wow, this turned out a lot better than I thought it would. I'm really tempted.. though I know the price point is pretty high. The poses are great and dynamic; I didn't really care for the Snake Eyes/ Red Ninja diorama. Only critique is... did Flint ever go up against Zartan? Nevertheless, a great piece.
  6. Awesome set-up! I saw the pic of just one of your floors and thought it was pretty cool. Then I started seeing the other pictures.. then when I saw the whole dio I was blown away! Great work, I hope to be able to do something that cool one day.
  7. No one else is willing to give these guys a try? It is one of the best podcasts out there. Just listen. It is free. Listen from your pc or ipod. You are really missing out. I am just saying. I've been listening for a while now. I agree, it's a great podcast. Love their reviews of the comics and occasional interviews.
  8. They have it for sale for less than $6 on the Barnes and Noble website as well. It's the first edition. I have both. The newer version has better pictures of the vehicles, but the older one is good as well and has an index, while the new one does not.
  9. I always thought a reskinning of Advance Wars would work great for GI Joe. Named characters like Hawk, Flint, and Duke could be commanding officers on the Joe side. Destro, Baroness, and Major Bludd could be on the Cobra side. All the different vehicles would be featured and the storyline could be an epic world-wide skirmish. I know I'd be totally psyched to play a game like this.
  10. Once Upon A Joe... This one really stood out to me as a kid. Shipwreck's fairy tale w/ cartoon versions of himself, Leatherneck, and Wet Suit was hilarious.
  11. Yeah, I thought something might be wrong with mine. Maybe I'll put a dab of glue on it to keep it attached to his backpack. He has too many weapons as it is to carry them all in his hands.
  12. G.I. Joe means to me reliving my childhood. Having big battles with my brother, losing weapons, and pulling out the wildcard "Storm Shadow" (who was really a Cobra trooper figure) who was hiding after all the others had been killed in battle. G.I. Joe means to me memories of watching the cartoon on TV every day after school, whether it was its own show or segments on Bozo the Clown. G.I. Joe means to me discovering the comic book with issue #73 and eventually buying all the back issues, as well as discovering a host of other comic books like X-Men and Amazing Spider-Man, and eventually indie comics. This is what G.I. Joe means to me!
  13. I asked a rep at the NYCC about the 2nd Punisher figure and he said it was being released in part because the first one came out so badly. The abnormally large head size was apparently a mix-up somewhere.
  14. Is there a definite price point for these yet?
