  1. do we know for sure they will charge 15 bucks for them? that is really a mistake on their part, since most figures that size are between 8 and 10 dollars. Also didn't they do this before? Sgt Savage?
  2. I was going to do something, but I think I missed the deadline. Oh well, gives me a bit more time to work on things for fun. lol

    I'm sorry but Snake Eyes isn't a ninja. A ninja dosen't run around with machine guns. Firefly, oh please. Zartan is as much a ninja as these two are. Never said he was trained to be one. At most I was giving out a possible idea on how he can do what he does. Oh and before you claim how Hama always thought of Snake Eyes as a ninja. Look at Snake Eyes' original file card. He is just a glorified commando. The ninja stuff was added in later, cause being a ninja was cool at the time.
  4. Ok, I'm working on some custom versions of some vehicles and refurbishing some others. Anyone know where I can get my hands on sticker sheets or even custom ones?
  5. Well considering the kids were in the custody again of the US government, the shadow element of it at that. It could happen, did Serpentor fall into custody as well?

    Well I'd like to say that Zartan is just kick but at disguise. As the blending in to the background etc, while Zandar is the master of doing that. I'd have to say technology. Either from a device or what I can see Devil's Due and Hasbor saying it is a modification to his DNA by Dr Mindbender. The option I'd go with over this is he knows some cool mystical ninja skills. Since I'm sorry as much as some will complain about it, he does fall under the Ninjas of GI Joe/Cobra. I mean if they can say Firefly and Snake Eyes are ninja, Zartan definetly is.

    I'm so far behind, Crimson Sabotage? What is that? Where can it be found?
  8. They only own Mattel. They have been doing figures for DCD along with Elite Force. The figures are characters in the 1/6 scale from the Blackhawk comics.
  9. Thank you for all of the input folks. I was getting kind of worried since I'd not seen any replies to this at first. Definitely the front runners are Urban and Iron Grenadier. I'm considering now looking for one that needs repair to turn into a nok vehicle. Oh sorry JoeRhyno, if I’d know. Lol, but then again it seems that most of the vehicles are going rather cheap lately on Ebay. I did get a hydro foil for under 20, a few months ago. Granted it was missing some of the missiles and the depth charges. ZombieGuide, that is nice. I like that look, it is close to what I had in mind for my urban version. I'm thinking a bit darker though for mine. I'm also considering using the Alley Vipers from the Urban set, definetly those if I go with the Stealth idea. Which might get mixed in with the Urban version. Before I continue let me address the whole Joe idea. First of all don't get me wrong I like the Joes, I'm even part of a costuming group that does Joes. Personally, I have a problem seeing some Joe vehicles as Cobra and Cobra vehicles as Joe. The Rage, well. I'm just not sure. I do agree if anything I could see it as a Night Force one. It will be something I consider doing. I also agree about the Rage as an Urban vehicle. I can see it in an urban setting, but also not in one. To me the Rage has always been more of a Cobra Tank. Keeping with the logic it seems of Cobra for fast attack vehicles. i.e. the HISS. The low profile works perfectly for stealthy maneuvers. I've been pondering other possible roles for this vehicle to fill. The wheel design kind of limits the type of terrain for it. But, then again I'm not going to even talk about the logic behind some of the designs that were done for the vehicles. Since some of the weapons just couldn’t be where they are. As to pictures I plan once I have it completed or even when the project is started to post images of it. Speaking of images, I'm going to try and post a picture of my 1/6 scale Baroness in the next few days. Lastly speaking of noks, being I'm from the home state of the noks. lol What do people think of the Water Moccasin as a nok vehicle.
  10. Ironicly military is what made BBI in the 1/6 scale figure market. I'd heard about the goth figures. Quite possibly unless they've totally droped Cy Girls it is just the theme of the new wave. As to Hasbro buying them well. Logicly it would be good, since it would make the quality of 1/6 Joes go up and they would also be able to do good female Joes. However Hasbro does own Mattel, so that really dosen't explain why they can't do female figures. But, then again do we really want Barbie with guns. The female figures that Hasbro is doing for DC Direct is using BBI/Elite Force CyGirl bodies. However knowing how Hasbro usually does things, alas they will just strip the company of what is good and trash the rest. Which might mean they burn the company just to get rid of the competition instead of using it to improve quality.
  11. I belive that Takara owns Cool Girls. Which is what Cy Girls are in Asia. From what I understand they were working with BBI on releasing the figures in America. That might have changed now. Also it is looking like BBI is going to become part of Hasbro.
  12. I recently picked up on Ebay for really cheap a Rage. It was missing its stickers and the mines. However, the rest of it was there. I got to wondering, since I've been wanting to fix up a Rage for some time. Just what kind of look do people think would be good for it. These are the ideas I'm thinking about. Any opinions or ideas are most welcome. I might try and get a good scan of the blue prints to do some color schemes. Or if anyone is interested in helping with that. 1) Urban Assault - Inspired by the look of the Alley Vipers in the Urban Assault set as well as how they've been done usually. 2) Dreadnok - Basicly, a Thunder Machine mk 2 perhaps. Or just what some crazy noks put together on their spare time. Possibly Monkeywrench or a new nok of my creation. 3) Python Patrol - Not really high on my list, but as an option. 4) Iron Grenadier - Basicly, the good old red, black and gold look of Destro's troops. 5) Stealth - Keeping with it as an urban warfare vehicle, perhaps a bit of advanced tech has been used to make the Rage a deadly vehicle. I'm also considering if I do a major revamp of giving it a bit more of a Cobra name. Rage, just never really said Cobra to me. I like the vehicle so I don't see me doing anything to it besides paint sceme and some cosmetic additions. Also if anyone knows of a good site to get some repo stickers please let me know. I'm also looking at redoing a old Joe HQ playset as a nok base. It is in much need of refurbishing, so I figured why not give it a new look.
  13. Was thinking the same thing.
  14. That would be pretty cool. Either the HISS 2, or redo the HISS IV since it was already screaming Python.
  15. Yeah I thought the STUN did have the a hook. I'd personally like to see a Python Rage. Or even the ThunderMachine. Course either of those in a good urban cammo would be nice.
