  1. Whoa, your pics look even better than Sideshow's pics. Thanks for sharing, cannot wait to get mine, might have to bite the bullet and pull her out of layaway! Very impressive, do you know what the production run is one her? I heard once these 1/6 Joes are in the neighborhood of 3000-3500?

  2. Just curious if anyone knows the correct size for O-Rings for the vintage Joes? A few years ago I bought 100 or so similar O-rings, slightly smaller and thicker. They work great for most figures, bought obviously can't use them for 82-83 figures and smaller torso figures, a little too thick to properly make room for the arm sockets. Also, while I'm if anyone knows the exact size of the leg and back screws? Anybody ever try to dremel out and replace rivets? Curious if that was successful, was thinking about trying something like that on a beat up fig with loose elbow/ shoulder rivets.

  3. I'm so excited for this,I signed up for the payment plan, should arrive by my birthday. This will be my first fig this scale. My local comic shop has the premium format Baroness, and I think the regular one looks better, can wait to see it in person.

  4. Good review, but why open a MISB toy when there are so, so, so many loose and complete examples out there for less than half the price? Seems like a waste, plus MISB are so rare and in demand, collectors go nuts for sealed stuff. I love all my loose stuff, but my sealed stuff is very special, brings me back to standing in the toy aisle and drooling. It's an interesting angle for a review channel, but it personally bums me out and I can't bear to watch.

  5. Not only the option to pick their figures, but troop building as well. I ordered the entire case+ an extra Storm Shadow from BBTS months ago. But it would be nice to find an ultimate CC or a few Data Vipers in the wild for 9.99 no shipping. I'm thankful for the internet being an option, but seriously wave 2 should have been wave 1 and this should have been wave 2. Kids would have gone nuts for these figures, not only collectors. Almost seems like Hasbro set the movie line up for failure with wave 1, regardless of the movie's postponement. Why don't companies such as Playmates or NECA have the constant issues Hasbro and Mattel have with their bread and butter toy lines? It's almost like they're tired of their own toylines and want them to see them off on a fast track to Marshall's.

  6. I was wondering since we haven't heard of anyone winning the lottery and getting selected and GI Joe Club pulled the information from their website. Can we file a lawsuit against them for conducting a false lottery? Everyone else wants to sue them so why not us as well? ;)

     

    I was wondering the same. Already not a fan of the club. I understand it costs a lot to maintain the club and club exclusives, but they seem to take particular joy in raking members wallets over the hot coals any chance they get. Just my opinion, of course. But I'll stick to being a non-member.

  7. I bought quite a few of the first wave and tons of blind bags, love them, but currently collecting dust. I've seen scant sightings of a wave two set and passed, but I'm sure I'll go nuts for them again. They're only collecting dust more for lack of time than any other reason. Love the Alley Vipers and Crimson Guard the most.
