  1. Then to top it off Hasbro and Target listed an exclusive black series figure Captain Cardinal @ the same time. He’s gone too. But no chance of trying to get the Joes and Star Wars items during these 1 minute windows. It’s like Hasbro’s saying choose between the 2 properties and you’ll be lucky if you even get one. Great job Hasbro... amazing figures but horrible strategy to get them into collectors hands. Scalpers hands yes but not the collector. Any U.S. collector should avoid these like the plague on eBay.
  2. Had all 4 in the cart @ 9 was checking out maybe 10 or 15 seconds later with Apple Pay and all but Roadblock was gone. So I somehow managed to secure Roadblock. How can a pre-order sell that quickly!!! Let’s be honest... except for some die hard fans GI Joe doesn’t even come close to Star Wars black series or Marvel Legends in popularity. But the Joe’s sell out in maybe 20-30 seconds... crazy!!! Hell the 4 black series exclusives lasted through out the day on Walmart last week. Maybe they’ll pop up again but it doesn’t look like it.
  3. This all day everyday!!! That Snake Eyes even originally came with a goggled head. Also they had a later Storm Shadow from 2013 v49 that more closely matched the Storm Shadow artwork. Just lazy very lazy.
  4. So cool! But I’m out of room. Quarantine has been an organizing extravaganza... basically me forgetting I bought 80% of the stuff I have.
  5. He needs to be careful or they are going to take away his license. He’s has some other mistakes over the past few years too.
  6. On the retail Snake Eyes it looks like a visor and in the package art it definitely is a visor. I just think it might be black and not painted silver which I think would be a nice little change.
  7. Not sure about Scarlett and Roadblock though She's not bad... she could be more classic but I'm not really excited at all for that Roadblock V2 and the crazy gun and all the shiny gold is just silly and the head sculpt just seems off GI Joe is fantasy and all but who the hell rocks shiny gold boots, knee pad, etc. It should definitely start classic. Even though I like the Snake Eyes he has at least 3 arashikage logos on him that are visible just from the front... I'm guessing one or 2 from the back. We don't really need even one... but I guess if push comes to shove one is cool on the scabbard or even sheath but that's it. Don't need a belt buckle and another insignia on his neck. We get it he's part of a secret ninja clan... now not secret at all Mattel did it for years pretty successfully with MOTUC no real major design changes just sculpt updates. Hell they are hedging their bets on the new retail MOTU line that's slightly updated from vintage sculpts and designs. Hopefully if the Joe line is an ongoing thing we actually get classic designs. I really think Snake Eyes should’ve had a more muted grey visor and wearing less gear. Like in the image attached below from the original leaked pictures. The Snake Eyes on the right looks more classic... just a nice newly sculpted classic update. Just add the arm bands and belt (minus the arashikage logo) and damn near perfect.
  8. Emotional trailer for me! I’m pumped for the final installment can’t wait to see how it all plays out.
  9. I want this but the Marvel Legends madness needs to slow down! It’s very hard to keep up right now. Hell Walgreens currently has 2 new exclusives on the shelves the Thing & Magik. That’s crazy right there!
  10. I’m just curious to see how they pull this off. Also I’m guessing it will be limited retail store openings in the first year.
  11. I was floored by this news. One of the greatest pieces of Star Wars media out there. It definitely deserves the comeback.
  12. Consider this purchased! I Wish it did better in the theater but maybe digital downloads and dvd/blu-ray/4K will sell well. Either way I still think Solo is a great movie. If you haven’t seen it go now!
  13. Yeah I’d definitely like to see more Clone Wars based 6” line figures too. But the panel might give us some cool Clone Wars nuggets we didn’t know.
  14. I like the extras with the SDCC version but the face scruff gives him a more realistic look. Not sure why but it gives him a more Harrison feel.
  15. These are so great. But I’m in the looking at them group too. I don’t have the space or money to collect anymore items... Legends and Black Series kill me.
  16. Wow ? the detail is amazing! I need to know who is going to sell us this masterpiece and I neeed to know now!!! ? seriously though I wish they’d give us the info on him and damaged Phasma hopefully by SDCC at the latest.
  17. I mean you’re not wrong. I paid $2 - $5 for some of these at Walmart. Actually just got the same Chewie at GameStop for $12 so yeah not sure why they’d continue. Only guess is to make it an exclusive and unload extra Chewie’s and Porgs they had already made slap an exclusive label on it and it makes more people want it. I saw Luke at the end at TRU and just saw recently Ashoka is on EE but I’m guessing it’ll all end soon.
  18. Agreed. Not sure how existing original trilogy characters will weave into the mix. But hopefully it’s great and they actually establish Phasma more than she has been in the movies.
  19. It’s actually something I’d consider buying... they actually look good in this deformed style. The sheer adsurdity of this makes it awesome!
  20. Can’t wait... none of the other animated series have disappointed me. So I have high hopes for this one. I’ll set the DVR as soon as a date and time are announced.
