  1. Hey I'm looking to get this Snake Eyes for my SE Collection... been checking on eBay to get this set since we don't have this in Canada and with shipping of the big box and the fact that everyone seem to be trying to scalp this thing, it would be almost $60 to get at the cheapest... and I don't even care about those damn red ninjas!! If any of you is army building this and have a spare complete SE and Timber willing to ship to Canada for a fiver or something along those lines... would be greatly appreciated! PM?
  2. It reminds me of my Lifesize Snake Eyes Statue I made a few years ago: This thing is actually in storage since I don't have much room since I moved... how much do you think I could get if I was to drop this on eBay next Summer? hahaha
  3. Nah, it's gonna be a full fan film... supposed to be released in 2008, probably on DVD only (which I think is strange...) Special Missions 2 was like 40 minutes or so... yet most of the people only saw the trailer (I saw the full thing.. which wasn't something to write home about.. except for maybe the final hand to hand fight between Beachhead/Lowlight and Firefly)
  4. I managed to find the promo poster for their Special Missions 2: But everything else (like.. the movies themselves) seem to have completely vanished from the web... I suppose the Hasbro lawyers weren't really far behind
  5. Well, if it wasn't for the extremely cheesy Storm Shadow costume (and the low budget Cobra Commander mask), the thing looks like it has some great action sequences for a fan movie... and most of the cast is pretty spot on (as in pretty much look-alike). I think those are the same guys that were behind the Special Missions 1 and 2 fan movies a few years ago, where they had an absolutely great-looking Flint in those, can't find a link to any of these old fan movies with a quick search... anybody remembers? The back-story seems to involve a prostitution network or something but hey... why shouldn't this be a more interesting backstory than the "Global Integrated Joint Operating Entity" that is gonna be on screen in 2009? For a fan movie, I'm impressed... it's not THAT awful at all... There's one JOE fan movie involving kids on youtube right now in like 204 parts, now that's awful and painful to watch...
  6. I found this while doing some googling around: http://www.idicentertainment.com/comingsoon/tempvideo.php WOW! I absolutely love this Scarlett btw :
  7. Anyone can help me? I need the Snake Eyes from the comic 3 pack (the one with Stalker and Storm Shadow.. comic #27 I think..)... I also need the Baroness 25th anniversary figure... both complete I just bought this lot tonight : http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...E:B:BCA:US:1123 I'll keep both Snake Eyes, Scarlett and SS... the other 5 figures would be up for grab... anyone up for a quick trade?
  8. New baroness cosplayer, I love the boots! :
  9. Sure! I'll switch it on the next update... I'll probably put that black and white pencil work instead! Never saw that one... nice..
  10. Yeah that's a great pic! Gets you a smile! It was probably an entry to the Maxim contest a while ago where you had to take funny costume pics involving GIJoe... (was it Maxim magazine? not sure... and wasn't it a board member who won that contest??)
  11. Good looking! New challenge: remaster this way all the 155 Marvel comics
  12. Thanks Archer1120! Autobots I've added a link to your blog!
  13. Because those are considered "alternate" Transformers Universes... I wanted the site to concentrate on the true G1 Optimus... I may add them down the road.
  14. Even though the brown leather belt instead of blue is a nice addition, did you add a blur effect to the pic? It seems a bit more blurry than your first one... I liked the sharpness of your first one while removing the ink dots marks .. the bluriness of the second one kills it IMHO (even though I'll take a tanned brown leather belt over a blue one anyday )
  15. Oh and btw, yeah, that "Valla" girl would make a pretty decent Baroness!...
  16. Like the mention in the gallery, those are pictures you can find on the web. You have to understand that as everything that's posted on the web, if the original author of the image/picture have any problem with the diffusion of one of the pics he himself let loose on the web, he can always e-mail the webmaster and request removal with proof of ownership (in my case, a fansite, unless the story seems a little fishy I wouldn't even think twice and remove it)... this is a fansite so it's not really a problem and I'd remove in a heartbeat anything that any original author feel inapropriate.. it's not like i'm making money out of this... but anyway you're cool with it so... let me just explain to you the point of watermarking since you don't get it (it's not to "appropriate" a picture to call your own that you watermark an item...) Some people will say otherwise, but watermarking is used to prevent bandwidth stealing (people linking to an image directly on the server of someone)... so if I was to steal the pictures from your own website to redistribute here on this fan website, and cause you bandwidth "stealing" by posting in my own gallery pics from another server, you wouldn't be happy (see, that pic is 60k, so let's say 200 visitors come to my website everyday and check out this pic, and I "steal" it right from your server by linking directly since you didn't even watermark it (would look as my own), that's 12 megs of bandwidth daily right there) ... that's the basic point of watermarking your images on the web... all major sites do this (and no, they don't "own" all the pics they watermark either), and frankly in this day and age where someone could post one of those high resolution pic in a couple forums and get over 500-1000 hits in 24 hours, it's almost necessary... it prevent people from doing this (well, maybe not posting in a forum, but at least steal your bandwidth right from your server to their website), and for those who may post a pic once in a while from there on a forum to show something to members, at least the watermark provides a link back to the original site.. so at least you don't "hand over" your bandwidth... There's other options to prevent "hotlinking", but I don't adhere to them since it makes the web a restricted place which I don't think is the point (so I adhere to the watermarking instead, may give the chance to someone to enjoy your hard work (your website) while stumbling upon a pic "distributed" by your website/server). So you can think of watermarking as "I'm the distributor of this pic you're currently seeing" and not "I'm the owner/creator of this pic you're currently seeing"... it's putting an alarm on your bandwidth to prevent stealing (that, you own), not to dispute ownership/author's rights of the image. Hope it's more clear? ..
  17. Thanks for the comments so far! Thanks! I've just added one to yours on my page!
  18. Hey guys, I've put up an optimus prime fan website last week : Optimus Prime : Transformers Autobot Leader (Fan Website) I was wondering if any of you have personal transformers websites up? I'm working on the links section and wondered if anyone wanted to trade links? THanks!
  19. Thanks! BTW if any of you guys have personal websites about GIJoe, maybe we could trade links?
  20. Here you go guys, I just uploaded the first version of my Baroness site, you can check it out here: The Cobra Baroness Fansite You can access the gallery of pics from the side menu.
  21. BTW, who's that girl VH on the 2 retouched pics?
  22. I was looking for scans/images of the baroness where she looks exceptionnally hot... ... But I don't mind looking at those too (I just found the most perfect image to retouch and put in the template for the gallery... and it wasn't on this thread ).. I'll let you know when I'll have the site finished, in the meantime if any of you have true images of the baroness (I have around 20 nice ones right now...)
  23. I'm working on a Baroness Gallery and it's kind of hard to find nice pictures on the web (with a decent res... not something like 100x100), Do you have any images of the Baroness that you find particularly nice or hot? Care to share? Post here! Thanks! Edit: Finished the website, it's here : Baroness fan website
  24. Hu? And all this on a hard drive with only 12 gig of usable space?... Am I the only one to think this is an idea which can only fail at this time? Although a nice one.. this idea is going down the drain (they confirmed there wouldn't be a higher hard drive anytime soon.. even if there was gonna be one, they don't have a deep enough market penetration with this new HD to turn this thing into a success before the end of the year...)...
  25. This preview is kind of a mix of scenes from SM1 and SM2... Been trying to find a place for you guys to download the movies but their original site from where I took them up a year or so ago is now down... I guess it means we'll never see that SM3 with Snake Eyes and Stormshadow Those were really nice fan movies! That Flint was awesome! They couldn't find a better guy to portray him! And I've heard is an aspiring actor...
