  1. I liked Rambo: First Blood Part II. You know that part where he kisses that chick by the water before she gets killed? And then he blows that guy up with his atomic arrow. And then he buries her body under some rocks and ties her necklace around his neck before he kills some more guys. Yeah, that part was so touching.
  2. Yeah, I agree. Those were dumb.
  3. I don't know if anyone knows this, but the first place I heard this rumor was from a certain know it all in the Joe community. So I'll take it with a grain of salt.
  4. *sniff sniff* Does somebody smell a fanboy? @smilepunch@ Actually, it's kind of fun to think of GiJoe in any sort of realistic terms because you suddenly realize how over the top it all really is. One of the greatest draws to Joe for me has always been the outlandishness of it. I for one am pretty excited about that Stormy just because of the O ring. The bike--meh--it could've been done better.
  5. I see you've been scoring some of those red BATs that come with the Snow Wolf figure. I really like that version of them. Also, I see you're chopping their antenna off. Poor BATs. How are they gonna pick up their favorite radio stations now?
  6. I'm glad to see that it's possible to remove the hood and grate. I'm loving that Wet Suit figure. And oh yeah, the weedwacker is back! I think that Pathfinder is definitely going to be my favorite version of him. Just bad ass.
  7. Well, I hope McFarlane would be smart enough to actually make these figures articulated so MAYBE they might work with Marvel Legends and like lines, but knowing McFarlane, they'll be static posed non-toys. I really liked PlanB's Special Forces series, but due to lesser levels of articulation that I've come to expect out of 6" figures, I didn't pursue them with any kind of zeal. Don't get me wrong, the articulation was decent, but once ML hit--everything else fell by the wayside. I do, however, have extremely high hopes for the new SOTA SF figures. These are good days to be a toy collector, my friends.
  8. I agree there. I can't remember quite how I stumbled on your Forgotten Figures page, but it's definitely something I check a few times a week for updates. I love in depth reviews of figures like that. I always find it interesting how many ways the Joe universe can be interpreted. It just makes me appreciate Joe even more. How about some more vehicle reviews, Mike? I'd love to see your take on the lesser talked about vehicles from later in the line, such as the Raider, or perhaps even some reviews of the smaller playsets from back in the day. #US1#
  9. What the hell's Luke Skywalker and his Landspeeder doing in there? You should've tried to save those by securing them in a garbage can. j/k. @smilepunch@ kind of. @lol@
  10. I think these are just starting to show up along with the new O-ring Storm Shadow on crotch rocket. I'm pretty excited about that Stormie, let me tell ya.
  11. I saw that Walmart also had several of these types of sets. One of them is a Bank Heist playset or something. A few pieces in the sets look decent enough, but I don't think I'll be picking any of them up. Now the Chap Mei stuff at Big Lots-- just picked up plenty and I have to say, they got some really nice vehicles and dio pieces. Wish I could find that damn Bad Guyz monster truck though.
  12. I've got 4 different Walmarts between work and home, so I usually hit each one about once a week or sometimes twice a week on certain Walmarts depending on what's coming out. I also have two Targets. Those are maybe once a week, too. Usually nothing new. TRU--maybe once a week. Usually not. TRU absolutely sucks for Joe in my area. They're still carrying wave 1 (tons of it) and have just gotten wave 2 within the past few weeks. So glad their new stuff is the stuff I've had for three months now. @rolleye@ I've also got a Kmart, but they blow. I might hit there once a month or so just for a laugh. Basically, I hit a store or two Monday through Friday, but I'm usually dissapointed. I definitely don't find new stuff even once a week. S'okay though. This way I'll have some money in my pocket for the holidays. So I can buy myself presents, I mean.

    Tru Vamp

    I think the figures are pretty decent, particularly Wet Suit. What needs to be changed is Brawler's shirt and head. He should have red hair. And his shirt should read SURVIVAL. I'm not sure if I like the rollbar on the Vamp yet. And the missile launcher blows. But you get the very sweet Whirlwind, so I guess it all works out. I'll pick one up.
  14. I know some of the Motorworks vehicles will fit RAH joes, but ONLY if you take the whole vehicle apart (you'll need a screwdriver and lots of patience @angry@ ), and rip the seats out, which requires yanking a few more screws. I bought a California Highway Patrol car from Walmart for like $10 under the Motorworks name, and it's great. All four doors open. The hood opens. The trunk opens. Plus it's diecast.
  15. Go with what VH said. Foamcore is great and you can buy lots of it from any hobby shop for cheap (I think a big sheet of plain white at 1/4" thickness goes for $2.50 or something like that at stores like Michael's and Hobby Lobby). Just make sure to buy a few spare exacto blades and some light sand paper with it. And take your time. Foamcore takes spray paint nicely and if you don't want to get into spray painting foamcore does come in several colors. Plus it's a lot lighter than plywood. Use a decent glue with it such as Liquid Nails or something along those lines--something that works well with porous materials. But if you're just looking for something you can play with, beat up and throw out, then cardboard boxes are outstanding. The problem with cardboard is how the edges are corrugated and how they fray. Have fun!
