So... aren't they on equal ground with BF2K, who were barely realized at all?
One of the largest disappointments I've ever had with Joes was finding out (as a teenager, long after BF2K had come and gone) that the 'Future Fortress' was little more than a design joke. I can only imagine what it was like for the kids who actually went to all the trouble. The ones I've heard from seem pretty bitter about the whole affair.
Then there's the 'shocking' and terribly lame death they were given in the comics, several years after they'd actually done anything of note (which was basically nothing to begin with). In fact, I'm pretty sure Dee-Jay's first appearance was the issue he died in. Talk about not being realized.
Fact of the matter is that when you break it down, I'm pretty sure IG got a better break than their 'counterpart'. If nothing else, TARGAT is freakin' sweet.
I liked the concept of the T.A.R.G.A.T., but I always thought it was bizarre because it wouldn't work, a design flaw in the uniform. Every T.AR.G.A.T. would probably explode going through re-entry due to the BELT OF GRENADES around their waists.
One interesting note about the IG vehicles is that, if we were to see rereleases, it would be interesting to see what changes Hasbro would make to them, like all the other vehicles. Could be interesting.
I do not know about all of you, but I just received word from BBTS HASBRO has canceled wave 5, therefore they have canceled the preorders. This is what i got:
Hi - Hasbro has just informed us that this item has been cancelled, and as a result they will not be able to fill our orders. We apologize for the inconvenience. We have cancelled all preorders and removed the item from our site.
this was for wave 5. I find it interesting this info comes out AFTER the last series of Q & A for this year. Bumber.......
