Newbie (1/14)



  1. I bought this thing, and folks, I didn't have to take it out of the box to tell you it sucks. In fact, didn't even have to open it to tell it. I mean just look at it. Even the simple plastic DVD case tells me it sucks. I, like everyone else, have absolutely no knowledge about this movie at all so needless to say I have no basis for my opinion but I can tell you before I ever view it or even remove the plastic around the case that I agree with everyone else who says this exact same thing, which is most of this board, that it sucks balls.
  2. Draven is correct in his statement that the Stretcher mold is in fact Dusty. I don't see how or why Hasbro chose to use that mold again for another character who has a mold availible to his name already.
  3. It would be even better if some stores or online stores would FINALLY GET THE DAMNED THING IN.
  4. Paramount bought the rights to Hasbro's entire media library, including Gi Joe. Any future releases as far as new titles will be released through Paramount. I have heard no word about Paramount re-releasing the Sunbow series down the road. But I can tell you this, I spoke with someone who has the set and they told me there is no mention of Season 2 Part 2 coming soon anywhere. Hasbro has said we would eventually get it, but it doesn't look like Rhino will be putting it out. With this set, they're overpricing it so bad in retaliation for Hasbro selling their library to Paramount so we lose.
  5. I can see it now, the winner of the biggest let-down award in 2004 is the Jungle Strike Humvee with Rollbar. I can just about 100% guarantee that once this comes out, every bit of positive that people have will turn to negativity. It happened with the Thunderwing, Urban Strike Team, and is beginning to happen with the Crimson Sabotage Set. BTW, I have never seen an inanimate piece of plastic that literally made me gag, but that 12" Eel did just that.
  6. This is the rumor that will never die. Wal-Mart canning Joe or part of it. Let it die a quick death people.
  7. Wal Mart, before their little war with Hasbro, was selling the 2 packs for the 7.79 a pack. Now they're trying to get rid of the stuff to kinda shift Hasbro out of some profits by marking it down to 4.39(those are prices at my local Wal Mart). The only store locally here that matches the prices closely is Kmart. They sell the 2 packs for 7.19 and Alpha Vehicles for 10.99. They also sell Beta vehicles, when they get them, for 13.59. So if we wanna talk price mark ups/downs, then Kmart would win because the one here sells Joe stuff really good without marking them way down plus they don't mark them way up.
  8. If TRU closes, it will be the end of Gi Joe most likely. In fact, most toy lines would probably go under if this happens. I can easily see the loss of Gi Joe, TMNT, TF Universe and maybe TF Alternators.
  9. That's true. Hawk didn't make general until 1986.
  10. NC is correct. Wave 6's Torch will be the first figure that features the no-pin technology. There will be no pins visible in the shoulders and it allows for variations in figure sizes. I don't know if this will be put into all figures in the future or not. I see Torch being used as a test figure for this to see how well it goes.
  11. Man, how can you have Fridge beat Robo-Joe? RJ would absolutely mash down the Fridge. I want to see RJ vs. Butt-Plug Duke!!
  12. I wondered was VM actually 8 feet tall or is he on a stairway and the Snow Wolves are on flat ground? And yes Riker, Beach Head has a new voice. As I was told about his new voice "think Sunbow season 2".
  13. No comment here. There are no old/new Joes for me. They're all the same line.
  14. I must say there are a lot of interesting pov's here. I don't buy my toys from Wal-Mart for the simple reason I prefer online shopping. MC and usually Amazon get stuff in for cheaper and you don't have to go somewhere only to find you've wasted a trip for nothing. Wal Mart is bad for all stores, not just toy stores. In a nearby town, we got a WM in 1993 and within 2 years, Kmart, Roses, and most stores in the local mall had to close down because WM was selling stuff cheaper. After this happened, WM raised their prices and stopped getting stuff at a good pace period. The town I live in had a vote to get a Super WM which was approved, but the people here protested so badly that the idea finally got axed. I have bought toys from WM before, but simply because me and my mom just happened to be there for whatever reason and I just happened to find stuff. I check WM and Kmart here, but rarely do I buy from them because by the time they get stuff, I've already bought it from various online e-tailers. If those who are anti-WM wish to support other stores, I say support TRU. Come on, most of us here grew up in these stores and in my mind, they're as much a part of pop-culture as Gi Joe. Who can forget the jingle they heard as children? "I don't wanna grow up, I wanna be a Toys R Us kid." Before the internet came along TRU and Kmart was where I bought toys from and only got to go to TRU once or twice a year but would usually get 100-200 dollars worth of Joe stuff. I am not anti-WM or pro-WM, but I do think that they are solely responsible for ruining the economy in the county I live in.
