  1. See if you didnt hear about it then that customizer must be BS-ing because you get all the details. I think he might be saying it to get sales of his custom heads Which is wrong of him because GI Joe doesnt deserve that said about them.
  2. i guess cuz the KKK wears hoods, is his connection, but Ive been a gi joe fan for years and Ive never even thought of that and yeah cobra itself never did anything racist.
  3. I asked this question on a fan friday post but thought I'd open it up to the main GI fans here. Has anyone heard about Hasbro stating they aren't going to make a hooded Cobra Commander figure because hoods are problematic? There's a customizer who 3D prints hooded heads who said this, but I cant find any reference to Hasbro saying it anywhere online. The customizer charges 100 bucks for his, admittedly nice, custom heads. Fwoosh and Toygalaxy have displayed them. But I dont want to pay that if I dont have to. He said that it has "racist undertones" but Ive never in my l
  4. He said that its because a hood and has "racist undertones". Personally I never even once considered his hood mask racist and never made that connection. Maybe he was just trying to keep ppl buying his customs.

  6. Nope but neither is Jaina Solo and she got a figure. Legends figures arent often but theyre always popular when they show up.
  7. I am not even going to get excited about this, as Walmart and Target consistently fail at preorders and exclusives, they dont protect against bots at all, and it just sounds like a headache waiting to happen.
  8. All the props to BossFightStudio for doing this line. They are doing the lords work with these figures.
  9. Right? At this rate everything will be walmart exclusives -_- By 2026, all food will be walmart exclusive O_O
  10. you really think that thousands of ppl across multiple industries throughout the world all just decided to use covid to be lazier? And its not that safe social distancing slows down production, which is a warranted and acceptable reason for empty pegs right now?
  11. Its the same thing all over the country. the pandemic is causing slow downs across all avenues of production. Toys, materials, food. Why do you think taco bell is about to cut a quarter of their menu, or shipping on anything is taking longer. But that doesnt change the fact that buyers for big retailers dont want to take the chance of taking up that kind of space, at that price point, for fear they may not sell. They dont look at direct funded ventures like Haslab and assume itll mean sales for them. One thing above all else is they are ridiculously cheap.
  12. I cant be mad at Haslab. Beause of its business model were getting that sentinel which is outstanding and would never have worked under normal business practices. Big box stores dont like to carry something that large and that expensive unless its something like a bike or power wheels. Shelf space is at a premium, especially with toysrus gone, so to manage costs the big box stores wouldve demanded a smaller size or lower price point, which couldve ruined it. Also given Haslabs infrequency, I dont think its holding up normal production that much at all.
  13. Luckily I picked up the WWE Basic Series 69 Sgt Slaughter because his costume is exactly the same as from GI Joe, and have just been hanging onto it for years, in the hope we got 6 inch GI Joes someday. Patience pays off sometimes.
