  1. two threads actually heres the other http://www.hisstank.com/forum/showthread.php?t=4694
  2. Every Joe down in Joe-ville liked Christmas a lot... But the Snake, who lived just north of Joe-ville, did NOT. The Snake hated Christmas! The whole holiday season! Now, please don't ask why. No one quite knows the reason. It could be his legs weren't screwed on just right. It could be, perhaps, that his gloves were too tight. But I think that the most likely reason of all may have been that his helmet was two sizes too small.
  3. will the 25th anniversay concept of re doing classic figures in the new body style be carried over beyond the 25th anniversary moniker's end in the Fall of 2008? How many figures can we expect to see in 2008 before the line switches over to movie figures?
  4. wave 2 and 3 were readily avalible in toms river on friday rodimus, the pegs were full, i have an extra shipwreck, zartan, and firefly if you want them
  5. didnt hasbro say at the con they wanted to redo all of the original 13? we're already getting or have Hawk Stalker Snake Eyes Scarlet Flash Grand Slam with Rock N Roll being rumored which only leaves Grunt Breaker Zap Short Fuse Steeler Clutch i think it safe to say we will see those by fall 2008

  7. well they say it will be similar to X-men and in that movie the new characters are wolverine and rogue who are thrust into the world of xavier and magneto, the teams are there, a history is hinted at, and the escalation of a threat is established in the beginning magneto is around but he becomes more militant so you apply this to gi joe, the team is there, they re a top secret daring highly trained special mission force whose purpose is to defend human freedom against cobra (after the threat is escalated, cobra already exists in some form) a ruthless terrorist organization determined to rule the world if you want to follow x-men and star wars more closely you'd need a anti hero to be introduced like Wolverine or Han Solo the hardened skeptical ousider, the Joe analog would to me be Shipwreck, afterall that is how hes introduced in the revenge of cobra miniseries. Shipwreck would also be highly recognizable to people who havent been engaged in GI Joe since they were kids, I know he wouldn't be a lot of people's first choice but he would serve the purpose of the character that draws us into that world the other probablyt most obvious thing to do it follow some mysterious character's background, for x-men it was wolverine, for star wars it was vader (in the originals), so for Joe the obvious connection is storm shadow and snake eyes, that would have to be worked in some how to drive the plot then you need the mcguffin device (no not necessarily the the item in once upon a joe) some item for the teams to fight over be it the holy grail, death star plans, one ring, allspark, or weather dominator components
  8. Now he knows, and knowing is... well you know the rest
  9. Is it me or does crank case look like he has a beard? He definitely has shipwreck's torso and arms, so does he had his retooled head too?[ http://i.toynewsi.com/g/index.php?mode=vie...600&start=0
  10. I wouldn't put in a ton of characters, a few keys on each side Joes Hawk- Dennis Quaid Duke- Matt Damon Flint - Christian Bale Snake Eyes- Ray Park Scarlett- Alicia Witt (i'd prefer a natural red head in the role) Roadblock- Tyrese Gibson Breaker- Jake Gyllenhaal Cobras Cobra Commander- Gary Oldman Destro- Gerard Butler Baroness- Kate Beckinsale Storm Shadow- Jet Li Major Bludd- Robert Carislie Firefly- not sure
  11. I have 25th anniversary Destro, CC, SS, and Baroness avalible for cost plus shipping loose and complete. PM me for info
  12. I noticed it too and when i told some one i was with they mentioned it in armaggedon. since one of the produicers is working on developing gi joe as well i doubt its a coincidence, and bay didn't write the script so the whole armaggedon thing could be coincidence.
  13. its on rt 37 a bit past the walmart on the east bound side, its called marquee cinemas, I saw shrek 3 there the other day and it was ridiculously clear and the sound was amazing, also its stadium seating so now worries about some ones head in the way. Its literally been open for a week and a half/two weeks. might be worth looking into, I'm going to the 8 pm showing there.
  14. Rika and Rodimus which thearter are you guys going to? I just want to make sure you knew about the new all digital projection, THX certified theater in TR
  15. Gi Joe does not seem as popular as some of other Hasbro properties on the current market. What does Hasbro attribute this to and how are you going to attempt to remedy this to make GI Joe a a stronger presence and more stable (instead of reinventing it every couple years) in the future?
  16. unfortunately we don't have any pricing info to go with these upcs in walmart's system, that would settle it
  17. Will the Lady Jaye figure coming out later this year be based more the original figure design or the cartoon, to clarify will she have that stupid hat? And if so will it be removable?
  18. Why has there been such a slow start for this line to turn up at retail? Out of all the items shown at Toy Fair I can think of, Transformers, Star Wars, and Marvel properties, have all had a significant amount of the product that was shown arrive on store shelves so why the delay with GI Joe and when can we expect these figures to start showing up in store shelves if they already haven't by the time this is answered?
  19. Since you folks at Hasbro have decided to at the very least make a few more figures in the new 25th Anniversary style what can be expected by us, the fans, as far as scope of the line? Are all series of GI Joe being considered going ahead or do the development teams have a certain frame of reference (time period) on which they will be drawing from going foward such as 1982-86? Let me be clear in that I'm not asking to give away that time frame if there is indeed one, but feel free to share.
  20. Here's hoping, I'm just surprised no Hawk, Spirit, Crimson twins, Dreadnoks, etcs... its kind of an odd mix of characters
  21. this was posted over at joesightings.com original thread can be seen here: http://www.joesightings.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=5574 "Hello I know that I'm new to the boards here, but these were found in a major retailers computer yesterday. 65356928936 Blade Destro 65356928932 Snow Job 65356928934 Flash 65356928935 Snake Eyes Black 65356928931 Crimson Guard 65356929251 Armor CC 65356929253 Torpedo 65356929254 Major Bludd 65356929252 Rock N Roll 65356929255 Wild Bill I'm not guaranteeing that these will be released just that they are in a retailers computer. The number strings in front are the products UPC codes, so someone should be able to validate these other than myself. I hope this information is helpful. Now lets discuss... If the info proves to be true, I can't wait to get my hands on Snow Job and Rock N Roll. PS the mystery figure from the cardbacks is Red Ninja in their system Thanks Slicer X " sounds like a good list but can only imagine what "blade destro" and "snake eyes black" are supposed to be plus helmetless pics of Duke and Roadblock here http://gijoeclub.com/25thset1.cfm
  22. 100% agree! same here I don't want anything beyond the movie at least until this lines been around for a bit
  23. I'll be happy if any of the following show up in 2008: Breaker Flash Grunt Rock N' Roll Short Fuze Zap Clutch Steeler Hawk V1 Grand Slam Major Bludd Airborne Doc Snow Job Torpedo Tripwire Ace Cover Girl HISS Driver Wild Bill Blowtorch Mutt & Junkyard Recondo Ripcord Scrap Iron Spirit Copperhead Deep Six Cutter Stinger Driver Thunder Wild Weasel Airtight Alpine Bazooka Barbecue Crimson Guard Dusty Eels Footloose Quick Kick Ripper Snow Serpent Tele -Viper Tomax Xamot Torch Crankcase Frostbite Heavy Metal Keel-Haul Lamprey Toll Booth Sgt.
