  1. Toy + electronic device + novelty (even in Japan) + import... it's actually not too bad. Don't get me wrong, I'd prefer they were half the price (or even less), but I understand the price they are.
  2. This has pretty much been the plan for Resolute since it was announced. And how, exactly, does "we're going to show it in parts online, then the whole thing at once on television" equate to "LEAP through their FIRING [sic] HOOPS!!!"? How much extra effort and exertion are they actually asking of you? Oh noes, you might spend a few more minutes each day on the internet, and *gasp* maybe a full hour in front of the TV... or you can just watch the whole thing online any time you want afterward. My god, Hasbro must be monsters! How does doing exactly what they always intended to
  3. Wasn't George's figure, technically speaking, a character based on him? Isn't that what Tunnel Rat already is for Hama? So doesn't that make an actual Larry Hama figure kind of redundant? I have nothing against Hama, but neither do I want a figure of him. As you said, Tunnel Rat was made to fill that role anyway. On one hand, the "invisible man" Snake Eyes is pretty much the only version of him we've never seen. On the other hand... why? That's his "off-duty" look. Save for one poorly-written issue, he didn't go into battle like that (I'm referring to Marvel here; maybe he does in t
  4. I love that we're at the point where even knockoffs can claim vintage status. Toy collecting just continues to be the strangest hobby.
  5. Aren't there any rules for overcharging on shipping? Is there no recourse for paying $30 specifically for shipping, then getting a box that says the sender paid USPS five bucks? I mean, I could understand a few cents, maybe even a dollar... we're talking estimates here. But come on here; this is the sort of scam that you can halt by taking five minutes to write out one new policy.
  6. I'll definitely buy the action figure here, but I don't think I'll consider it another version of CC. It's a nice addition to the Cobra ranks though, but just isn't what I'd like to see as another CC outfit/disguise/getup! We've seen so many types of Vipers, Cobra's, baddies that have the masks and tubes and weird contraptions strapped to their bodies for life support or super strength, that THIS just looks like any one of THOSE, instead of having any of the more DISTINCT CC appearances. Cool toy, cool NEW character...but crappy looking if it's Cobra Commander, and even if it's just o
  7. I'm under the impression that this is a one-week sale, not a clearance. It doesn't fit Target's normal clearance discounts, that's for sure!
  8. Oh, well that's good. For a moment I thought you were using "homosexual" as an insult. @grumpy@ I was and am! What part of being a "d!ck" did you not get? You have your lifestyle and I have my objections to it, and in the end we should ALL be "free to be you and me"...right? People get insulted for a ton of various life choices and other such reasons, like over a religious/non-religious choice, a political choice, a choice of reading material, movies, toys, comic books, sports teams, music likes, appetites, food choices, education choices, ideals, opinions, attitudes,
  9. I believe his eyes are the same color, correct? That means that the sword/missile and the eyes are likely on the same sprue. Making the sword gray means gray eyes and back of head, negating the light-piping feature and requiring additional paint apps to fix. Personally, I would have preferred they go that route, but I can understand why they didn't.
  10. BOUGHT. I heart ROM... but the original toy is just too big, too goofy, and too expensive. This nicely takes care of the first two problems. He'll still be expensive, but I'm more than willing to pay for quality! So... is he going to have all three of his original accessories, or just the Neutralizer?
  11. I've never been that big into movie toys, so the actual movie looks don't hold that much interest for me. I can totally see picking up some of the armored people to use in various customs, but only if they go on sale. At full price, I could see popping for a few of the not-in-25th characters, like Heavy Duty, Cover Girl, and Ice-Viper... but a lot of that's going to depend on how they look once I see them in hand. Cover Girl looks pretty awful, IMO. Sgt. Stone is a nice little bone to Extreme/S6 fans though. Very curious to see if he's in the movie, or just some random parts reuse with an
  12. I really love them. And OOOOOH, nice heads-up to Trigate there. I can see they'll be getting some of my money, once I have the time to customize again...
  13. Has anyone else noticed that there's like 2-3 action figures of most of the Joes? Only one of which looks vaguely like the character we know and love? Does anyone else think maybe this is only one of the Commander's figures? That maybe this is one of the "off" ones, and there's likely to be another figure that looks at least a little closer? Anyone else realize that this movie is called "Rise of Cobra", and it would make sense for the Commander to go through several different looks as his organization evolves? Anyone else think maybe there's a lot of overreacting due to not knowing
  14. I can see that, but $7.77 was a seasonal price. We all knew it wasn't going to last forever (although I certainly hoped it would). When they went off sale, they then went up to the normal price... which had increased. And I think some of that depends on how quickly the stores moved. I know my local Wally bumped them up to $9.98 or something like that, then up to $12.88 a week later. The actual, normal price went up $3 (or less), not $5. Believe me, I know $3 is still a big jump, and it's casing me to weigh my impulse buys very carefully these days. My point is that it's not an unreason
