  1. I stand by my memories that there were at least some people at the Devil's Due forum posting that they had received the comic on the 11th. It may not have been officially on sale but I'm sure some people were able to get them the day before just like some people get DVDs before they are supposed to be on sale.
  2. The Renegades: Sgt. Slaughter, Mercer, Taurus, Red Dog, and Falcon. Give Slaughter and Falcon removable hats. G.I. Joe Sea Force: Keel Haul, Shipwreck (Devil's Due look), Cutter, Wet-Suit and Top Side. Give Keel-Haul a removable hat. Destro's Iron Grenadiers: Destro (IG uniform but with chrome silver head like in later Marvel issues), Iron Grenadier x2, Voltar (black or maybe red uniform instead of pink), and Metal Head (DiC cartoon look). G.I. Joe Tiger Force: Duke (classic TF colors), Roadblock (classic TF colors), Skystriker (Wild Weasel body with new head in classic TF colors), Sabertooth (Firefly painted like unproduced Sabertooth figure) Snake-Eyes (V2 look SE in yellow and black tiger stripes because it would be one funky looking figure).
  3. Looks cool. Though I want to refer to them as the "Cobra Sour Apple Brigade" for some reason.
  4. I'm not really a fan of these guys. I don't like the idea of each trooper type having to have a "uniform" that looks nothing like the rest of Cobra. Essentially a Cobra Flamethrower Trooper to me would more or less look like a Blue Shirt in the sense that the Jet Pack Trooper does. As such I tend to look at many of the later troopers as being individuals.
  5. I specifically remember the comic being available to people on September 11th. Did I personally have it? No, but there people people giving reviews and what not if I recall on their message board.
  6. It might just be a communication problem. Wal*Mart employees a lot of people. It could be that these things were placed in a damage bin or what not and whoever has to go through that stuff looked it over not seeing why it would be considered damaged and put it back on the shelf. Or it could be that they just told you that they were going to take care of it to get rid of you.
  7. the playset on the left in the picture is the Terror Drome (1986). The one on the right looks like a non-joe custom dio. I just now saw this. The one on the right is one of those (I think) Elite Force WWII playsets they sold at Toys R Us. It's a bombed out house.
  8. I'm working on a new toy room. My old one was more like a toy closet. I got a heck of a lot more space. I haven't got anything moved in there yet but I'm cleaning it up and putting up shelves. When it is finished I'll be sure to post some new pics.
  9. I wish the Viper and Hiss Driver's masks/helmets were removable. They would of just have then Trooper heads.
  10. How about they base the new comic on the 25th Anniversary line and set it "somewhere" in the Marvel run without being too specific? That way the Devil's Due stuff still happened but it just hasn't happened yet and is of no concern. So basically it would mean that certain events from the Marvel run would have already happened (Serpentor, Cobra Civil War, 'death' and return of Cobra Commander, defection of Storm Shadow, etc.) while others would not have (the Joe base being shut down). The Joes and Cobras could sport their classic looks just like in the 25th toy line and because it's set at some point in the Marvel run it means that the fact that many characters are Vietnam vets would not be an issue (that being they are too old) and that characters who died in the Devil's Due run would still be alive (namely Lady Jaye). There would probably be a few continuity glitches but nothing major if it were done right.
  11. I doubt they will get to most of the designs from the 90s. We will possibly see the 1991 Snakes-Eyes. Maybe even the Ninja Force one. And the Ninja Force Storm Shadow. When a Joe like Tollboth is more memorable than Bulletproof to most collectors, the 90s guys don't stand much of a chance of being made.
  12. That one Joker is looking rather cartoony. Doesn't have the scarred up face that the other one does.
  13. I want to say there were Star Trek figures based on the original Motion Picture that are in scale with 3 3/4" Joes but I could be confusing them with something else.
  14. That scene always kind of disturbed me because it was the monkey that ratted Marion out thus causing her apparent (at that time) death. Indy was petting her killer!
  15. I think that is less dirt and more of a 5 o'clock shadow. Ok, my nit pick...and I can fix this on my own, but why doesn't Hasbro equip the troopers with the AK assault rifle? It is just like the troop builder 6 pack back in '04....wrong gun choice. Does Hasbro not have the tool anymore to press these out? I can at least order from Maurader, but it just adds another stop to the process as with all the other troopers I got. Heck, Hasbro even managed to equiped the 'Toon troopers properly judging from the Toy Fair pics. Why can't they pull this off? Is it that hard?? Hey Kevin.....how many of these did you snatch up? SHHHHHH! Be quiet or we'll start getting guns that were released with figures from the 90's, and in colors like brown, green and purple! Brown and green? I would have killed for such guns back then. More like pink, orange, and light blue.
  16. Obama is not a Muslim. Why is it that people accept that McCain or others are Christian but question Obama? Is it because his name rhymes with Osama? Jesus Christ, people are stupid.
  17. Sgt. Slaughter. Starduster would just be a repaint with that rocket pack. Hasn't everyone gotten their fill of that already?
  18. It's more or less already been established that G.I. Joe in this film is going to be like Action Force in the sense that it's an international team. As such there is obviously going to be an absence of America references.
  19. You know you're smart when your politics are based on what a person's name sounds like. Do us a favor and don't vote at all.
  20. So it pretty much looks like the logo that Hasbro was using on the post Sigma Six 8" figures?
  21. Why does that one Indy figure come with an extra hand?
  22. I don't think it has anything to do with bilingualism. Take another look at the card of the Joe figures. Something other than the artwork is missing. The American cards say "A Real American Hero" on the Joe packaging. The Canadian ones do not. Apparently this is the reason for the lack of artwork. The bilingual text is on a sticker after all.
