  1. Out here in Upstate NY and we got nothing. Although I haven't checked TRU yet. Didn't want to waste gas.
  2. Looking for 1987 V.3 Cobra Commander breathing apparatus.Any suggestions on who or where I might be able to find one?Thanks in advance
  3. G.I. Joe needs to make Joes more of a black ops operation.No futuristic vests or over the top characters.The military unit led by Josh Duhamel and Tyrese Gibson in Transformers DOTM came off, to me, more like Joes,in a realistic way.I know HASBRO wants characters to look different for the action figure line's sake but I think a uniform team would be better for the big screen.Kind of like the night force,or tiger force line of Joes.And stop it with the sex symbols.Joes don't have to look like they just fell out of a "100 most beautiful people" magazine.Think Seal Team 6.Cobra needs a remake,too.They're design is great for action figures but a bit over the top for the big screen.I know HASBRO is targeting kids too but that doesn't mean they have to make everyone look like they're sporting NERF gear.Kids are a lot more mature these days and could use a bit more realism in the next Joe film.
  4. [/url][/img]So glad I didn't pay the 15 + bucks vendors wanted for Storm Shadow on Ebay!Five Below is the equivalent of Little Ceasers right now!5 dollar goodness!
  5. Off to Five Below for some Joe action!Wish me luck!

  6. G.I. Joe would have been awesome If they were portrayed more as a Navy Seal,secret ops team for the President.You know,kind of like the team that found Saddam and Bin Laden.Instead of going right after prominent Cobra personell,their first targets should be leaders of other countries.Just to give it a more realistic feel.These leaders could hire Cobra for assistance and then all hell could brake loose.It seems like hell brakes loose to soon in these films.Ya gotta ease into the "braking loose of hell" at a believable pace.
  7. The one figure that really got my attention when the first 3.5 images started to surface a while back was Budo.He was one of my favorites as a kid and while i think they should have gone with the 80's color scheme,he still looks bad ass.He's the only figure i've gotten so far (still waiting for it).He's gonna clash like crazy when i display him next to my other Joes but i don't mind.He truly is an original fig!
  8. I just saw a review on the Snake Eyes figure and it looks like they've used the Retaliation Ninja Duel head for it.Am i just seeing things?If so that's pretty dissappointing seeng as how i would have liked the head sculpt to be more cartoon accurate.
  9. I'm gonna take back the "wack" statement i made about the game as i am pretty hooked on it right about now.My question is-Can i turn any of my cards into leaders by leveling them up or upgrading?Or are leader cards stand alone?
  10. I was born in 77 so my first dose of SW came in the early 80's while living in Puerto Rico,and it came by way of action figures.The first SW action figure that i can remember laying eyes on was a Tusken Raider.There was also tons of merchandise and propaganda and i can still remember these small puffy SW stickers that came in bags of Munchos and other Frito Lay products.I'm not sure if that also went on in the states because i can't seem to find any pics or anyone with recollection of it.I hunted down those stickers mercilessly.One of my favorite stickers was of Lando Calrissian with his pimped out blue outfit!
  11. Fireworks are overrated...oooooh wook at the pwetty lights...git da f&^%$ outta here.

  12. Pretty wack.I thought maybe i had it on autopilot or something because i had absolutely no control of my team members.
  13. As a collector and pretty knowledgeable Joe fan,i l love them all.But which ones do you think will be least appealing to the younger consumer?I was diggin the Budo figure until i got a closer look at his face.The goatee looks a little off .I'll probably snag up a Snake Eyes first (force of habit) .
  14. Loved it the first time i caught it at the theater.Watched it together with the kids for a second time on DVD and loved it,and will watch again on NETFLIX..and love it again.
