  1. We definitely IMO need to see a Major Blood and Falcon by now. I'll let the Crimson Guard pass since they did give us the ones from the Crimson Sabatoge set.

     

    I'd also like to see some of the cool Joes from the "lost years" given a new sculpt. Guys like Hit & Run, Muskrat, Repeater, Bullhorn, etc.

  2. Scarp Iron - Same old figure but looks great with those detailed colors.

     

    Serpentor - I'm hoping that head dress is removable, looks a little big but I'm liking that he has a decent head underneath.

     

    Firefly - I'm loving that new head. Looks like the original, only better.

     

    Snake-Eyes - Whatever.

     

    Storm Shadow - I'm glad he is sleveless but I was hoping for a new head. That head is dated.

     

    Red Ninja -Disapointing. That V2 Storm Shadow head looks nothing like the Red Ninjas. They would have been better of using a Mortal Kombat ninja head.

     

    Road Block - About time that mold got a decent head. The old head stunk.

     

    Duke - Another figure that was in dire need of a decent head. And they have him short sleeves! Love it.

     

    Destro - Should he have white gloves like that? I guess this is an OK figure but I'd rather the head be in that metalic plastic.

  3. Wow! Bombstrike & Croc Master look awesome! Croc Master is better than the original!

     

    Overkill is . . different. More robotic but I like the other look better. He at least needs a mask or something. That Duke is looking pretty good.

     

    Viper - not only in decent colors but they gave him a Cobra symbol. I like it. Gung-Ho isn't bad either.

     

    Cobra Commander with a removable helmet and hood! GREAT! Not so about the white boots and belt though.

     

    The new Snake-Eyes and Timber . . . . BEST SNAKE-EYES EVER! Puts all theo ther ones to shame!

  4. The only thing good about the DIC episodes is that you get to see Joes from the late 80s, early 90s that werent in the older ones.

     

    I think the #1 problem with the cartoon was ot the animation, but rather the fact that they tried to make it into too much of a comedy. I recall one episode where Metal head slipped on some ice or something and it was complete with Looney Tunes-like sound effects. I was waiting for someone to drop an anvil on him.

  5. Hasbro would never do anything with the same quality that Toy Biz has done. I like Joe for a number of reasons but one of the reasons is because their small size allows for vehicles and play sets. The 3 3/4" figures were rated the #1 toyline by Toyfare years back above the 12" Joes because of this fact.

     

    And besides . . . imagine trying to armybuild Cobra troopers that cost as much as a 6" figure.

  6. I always wanted to but the closest thing to "army building" that I ever did do was when I bought a second Iron Grenadier because he was just THAT cool!

     

    My Cobra army was always pretty damn crappy. It was only just some rag-tag group of troopers (none of which had weapons that went along with theur specialty) with some of them not even being actual Cobras, (Iron Grenadiers etc.) with some loser like Crystal Ball because I had no other use for him.
