  1. I would say completely insane. He's a terrorist that has eluded the governments of the world for decades. The only truly sucessful terrorists are the crazy ones and the religous ones. The Commander certainly fits into the crazy catagory.
  2. really....go to www.rebelscum.com go the the forums...go to vintage...it has a detailed descrpition of how a guy resealed a figure (ROTJ Admiral Ackbar) and had it graded at a 69!!! they can be fooled...and I dont think its real...some one swaped it and returned it...you can have non exsistant figures on wrong cards...Accidently show up in stores... believe half of what you see, and non of what you hear! @hmmm@ Yeah but this is a blister card we're talking about. Im pretty sure its damn near impossible to reseal one of those. Hey GREIGULL, can you take some better pics of the description sticker? I can see in one where it says "B.A.T" and about that it says "pack", but I cant see the other one because its too blurry. I ahve to admit i was skeptical about all this but Im starting to believe now. Just another Pimp daddy destro situation. But is Greigull the only one who found one of these? seems like ther have been one or 2 more... I don't know about that. One time I was at Target and I found a bunch of these that had old Frankenstein-d figures in them. The reseal job was perfect. There was no way to tell, except that the figures were all wrong and mismatched. In a way though I really want this to be real and I wish there was a way to prove it. Why do people set reserves but not tell you what it is? I mean come on, if you know what the reserve is then you know where to start bidding.
  3. Whoa, what the heck is that? If it's graded then it must be for real. Right?
  4. Dude, thats some seriously pent up anger you got there. I saw your band site, now I understand where all the music comes from, it's all because of Hasbro. Just kidding. I agree with you. Just keep in mind that they are Hasbro and they're used to dealing with children. I don't think these guys look at us as anything more than a bunch of big kids.
  5. I do the same. I flatten them and place them in a big black garbage bag that I have placed behind a bookshelf in my appartment just for this reason. It keeps them all out of the way and saves them in mint condition.
  6. That's some pretty funny stuff. The tiger in the second to last one is hilarious. I also like Cobra Commander with Bin Laden. Although I think the Commander would kick his ass for being such a pu55y
  7. I think of the original Firefly figure. I played with that figure so often that my father had to replace my original after only a couple of months.
  8. Is this meant toward me because of a typo I made when replying to someone elses post? What are you talking about? This is not my thread and you don't have any right to get nasty toward me.
  9. My family thinks it's really strange. No one in my family has a hobbie or anything, so I can't compare it to them. My friends think its cool though. They all start talking about the Joes they used to have when they were kids, whenever they see them.
  10. Can you imagine how stupid that would be if they closed down a convention in Disney Land because of Rowdy fans of a toy line. Not to mention all of the people that would get charged for canceling their plane tickets, I doubt MC want to deal with paying to all those cancelation fees.
  11. Hey I just saw your ziplock after I posted. I think they are the same methods, but the benefit of "tape" is that it doesn't slide around. :-) That's a good point. I'll have to try it.
  12. Original Beach Head. Great figure. I'm happy you're so happy. Do you collect a lot of mint-on-card figures? I don't have any mint on card. All of my stuff is losse but most is in really good condition. Do you plan on having it AFA rated?
  13. The best way is to take a ziplock bag and cut a very small sqare of plastic off, When I say small, I mean like a quarter of an inch. Take the leg apart and put the plastic square that you cut out over the joint. Then put the leg back together. You may have to do a little trimming around the edges to get rid of any extra plastic, but you'll have a figure with knees that are just like new.
  14. Those GI Joe Simpsons are hilarious.
  15. Hey guys I thought it would be cool if everyone that posts here on the board listed their site's in one ongoing thread. The two I know of so far areRasonej (Army builder website) and Violentfix (Inner Sanctum). So if you have your own Joe based site list it here for everyone to see. I'm sure there are lots more that I don't even know about. Maybe it would be helpful to give a little background about your site as well.
  16. Wow, there are some seriously talented people in this Furom. Great site Violent. I can't wait to see more of your Diostory. I like the bios too, keep them coming.
  17. I wish Hasbro would have made a helicoptor for Cobra's troops. Larry Hama had that one design that he used through the whole series. I doubt we'll ever see something like that out of Hasbro though. To Bad. work great work.
  18. Vypra is my favorite. It was great that Cobra got a new female personality. The Barroness is getting old. I couldn't stand the red stripes on the Baroness repaint when they made Chamelon.
  19. Thats great. You'd think that Hasbro would look to the collectors customs to make decisions about new products and paint schemes. I'm loving all of these Cobra Blue customs we're seeing lately.

    Wow, what a response. You guys have definitely made me feel welcome. I'm sure that anywhere you go you're going to find some trolls, comes with the internet. Everyone seems really cool here though, I doubt I'd get a welcome like this on any other board. Yeah Starscream, lets see that collection. I'm going to be getting a digital camera soon and I'll get some pics up as soon as I can. Nerd Viper, please, no pictures. Yo T.A.P. don't be upset that I'm cheesy enough to make a post like this. Be proud that you didn't need to. "I AM SCI-FI" I must admit that the appeal of Cobra is strong, but I'm a Joe all the way. Thanks guys

    That Razorback custom is out of control. Hasbro should make one with those colors. I'd buy it.
  22. What about a Zartan with Zandar. That would be a perfect matchup for the con exclusive set.
  23. It would be amazing if they made a terror drome with a darker color scheme. How about a terror drome with a plastic see through dome that would fit right around the top and seal the control center from the outside world.
  24. How many of those did you make. I count about three. That's an great custom. I love how you used the Alley viper shield as a Cobra insignia. Where does the original tank come from?

    Hey What's up? I just want to say hello to everyone here on the board. I hope to be spending a lot of time here and contributing to the conversation. I've been visiting this forum for a while now and it's definitely the best one around. I mainly collect 3 3/4 inch joes. Right now I'm trying really hard to complete my collection from the eighties. It's far from complete. Well, I'm looking forward to talking with everyone. #US1#
