  1. Convention Info Not too bad. I'm guessing the B.A.T.s might be the DTC/BAT Attack 6 pack one as the parachute figure is called a "Sky B.A.T."
  2. If you find any more packs, I'll take 5. @bounce@ Thanks for thinking of us CT.
  3. Overkill & Steamroller Crossing fingers for an Overkill VS Robojoe showdown
  4. Hey tom just wanted to give a shout out from Kandahar, Afghanistan @usa@ stay safe and good luck man. (seeks back into hiding)
  5. I agree you don't want to hurt his feelings, but you should also let him know how to spot a true 12" G.I.Joe (IE: backward thumb, scar on cheek) so it doesn't happen again. Maybe relay a story of a friend who got ripped off by a figure swapper, just to make him aware. #US1#
  6. Scarlett is almost a lock in the toon but I doubt we'll see her made as a figure, because remember "Single carded female figures do not sell for a boys toy line". On a side note I'm still in shock over this whole deal, I spent 3 months in the middle east, came home for 2 weeks and went to Thailand for a month and a half. Not the best thing to jump into after being out of the loop for so long. @grumpy@
  7. @bH@ Quick question. Are smiley's considered anime? @smilepunch@
  8. Salvo vs. Keel Haul = Salvo Roadblock vs. Dodger = Roadblock Kamkura vs. Toxo Zombie = kamkura Road Pig vs. SAW Viper = Road Pig Nemesis Enforcer vs. Scrap Iron = Nemesis Enforcer Destro vs. Duke = Destro Serpentor vs. Super Trooper = Super Trooper Quick Kick vs. Beachhead = Beachhead
  9. @soap@ Some are blinded by images of certain anime they like and others by lack of knowledge on this subject. Why don't we wait until production stills and/or better yet the finished product can be viewed, until we gather our torches, pichforks, and knoted ropes to deal with who is responsible. #enlighten@ O well just a thought.
  10. Crimson Twins Posted on Dec 26 2004, 12:45 PM I was based out of Al U Deid Qatar but I flew into just about every airbase in Iraq over the last 100 days. Enjoy Kuwait, what kind of work do you do?
  11. Just back from Iraq hope it's not too late to vote? Interrogator Falcon CLAWS Commander Flint SGT. Slaughter Overkill Ripper Fast Draw
  12. Air Force here, currently sationed at McChord AFB Wa and I've been to Jordan, Kuwait, Iraq, and Qatar in the last two years. Stay safe Crimson and I'll be heading back to the sand in September.
  13. I wouldn't read to much into it. Most Wal-mart's on the west coast don't have room on the peg wall for joes, however they still carry the figures on the shelves thanks to the new packaging. Also most stockers in the toy dept don't have a clue about what the stores are or are not carrying. #WTF# Just something to think about before everyone runs around screaming the line is dead. @good night@
  14. Don't wait for them to go clearence. One of the reasons the other HQ is clearenced is because HASBRO offered it for two years only changing the packaging. Another is that Toys R Us had a bad problem with over ordering exclusives. This is something they have corrected, ordering less to cut overhead down and raise profits. I don't think these will hang around long enough for clearence. Just my opinion #US1#
  15. File Name: Shawn Abrams Location: McChord A.F.B. (when I'm not in the sand playing) @grumpy@ Occupation: U.S. Air Force Crew Chief #US1# Reason for being here: the information, the conversation, the people, and the laughs
  16. I'm guessing that the single packs might be for the smaller retail stores, but it is a step in the right direction. The troop six pack looks nice, but the weapons need swapped out. (mental note: need to find COBRA troopers 1:18 size AK's) @firedevil@
  17. Welcome aboard Fatherlove. @firedevil@ (goes back to playing in the sand) @rolleye@
  18. No disrespect intended but how did you get this preview? :wink:
  19. I have only seen it on the figure packs, and my understanding is this is the only product to receive them. You could always ask when the rep is coming into a store, and ask him or her about it directly. I don't think it's dishonest if you really want the figure, as long as you don't cut the battle points off the bottom of the packages. :evil:
  20. The low down on the order form is that the Hasbro rep. in each area puts on the stickers. Bigger cities have a better chance of finding them as they might have two to three reps. The smaller towns have to share their reps with other towns and would have to wait untill the rounds are made. I would think that maybe with wave 8 or 9 that they will come from the factory with it, as Hasbro would try and push this figure.
  21. Thank you Flint. I know I read that somewhere, but couldn't find the link. :-?
  22. The 'chute was a fire hazard and because of U.S. laws they can not release it in a kids market. :roll: Remember the good old days before everything was kid proof? :wink: Hopefully they will come up with a better design and we will see Ripcord soon.
  23. ............. ............. (man I am at a loss for words here)
  24. NightCreeper is not far off there. I remember reading somewhere they are old friends who think alike and sometimes dress alike. I guess it's larry's way of explaining the figure of him. I'll try and find the link. :wink:
