I just really want them to round out the first few years of RAH... I want all of the following before "the end"
82 - Short Fuse and Zap
83 - Tripwire and Cover Girl (Though I am happy with my custom CG so if we don't get her I won't be devistated)
84 - Blowtorch, Recondo, Ripcord, Scrap Iron, Cutter, DeepSix, Thunder
85 - Airtight, Alpine, Dusty, Footloose, Quick Kick, Frostbite
86 - DialTone, Dr. Mindbender, Iceberg, Leatherneck, Lifeline, Lowlight, Mainframe, Monkey Wrench, Zandar, Zaranna, Sci-Fi, Cross Country, Thrasher
87 - Jinx, Tunnel Rat, Chuckles, Law and Order, Mercer
But if they can just finish off 82 and 83 I'll be happy.. at least for the time being.
KD, I can't debate this list one bit.....and I too won't be devistated if we don't get a Cover Girl. @hmmm@- General "G.I.Joe" Colton!

Good calls SE!!!!
I got mine last week.i got mine last week too.
......got mine 3/31 @hmmm@
Bring 'em on!
Hope to see 9, 10, and 11 (aka Waves 5 through 7 - '08) in due time too!!
Tell her you are making one for someone else! @hmmm@
I am not into customs much, but I for one would dig adding that to my collection. My offer is still there to buy it or commission someone to make one for me. Ol' cmder has squat for art skillz.
I have not counted it all yet.
Tight race. I don't know when voting ends today, but so far it is:
Vietnam SE: 44
DB Baroness: 42
Baring a huge comeback by the 4th place Snow Serpent, these are the top 3. People are complaining a bit too much on the risque-ness of the Baroness. Again, like I said, two vastly different schools of though out there. @loll@
I dig 'em all and certainly appreciate the efforts.
I don't think these things will be hard to find at all. Today (4/13) is go-day for these, so I hope all of you that suffered heartbreak that the customer service desk will get some love today.
Thanks for your service!
Wow....the vote totals just jumped up. Lot o' politicin' going on I see...and some bickering in the GIJCC boards....just a matter of time before that started happenin'. Good to see the GIJCC getting the new traffic, but I don't think the mods had a clue what was coming up for them. @lol@
Yeah, echoing a lot said here already. I have some 21C and BBI soldiers, aircraft and armor. Good stuff.
Can someone PLEASE place an order for me, they wont ship to CAnada or accept Canadian credit cards!
Wait until later this spring. They said they were creating a Canadian site or working on selling to Canada on one of the Star Wars Canada fan sites.
Wow, that sucks, but I bet Hasbro will say something at JoeCanuck on the 19th. Man, I wish I could go....it sounds like you guys have a heck of a time for a one-day con. I am going to make it a point to go up there next year since the US$ and CAN$ are trading at nearly 1:1.I pre-ordered the Battle Packs....just a tad cheaper than BBTS.
I had the Battle Packs and vehicles preordered fro BBTS and figured up that by going through HasbroShop with the discound and free shipping along with slightly cheaper prices I saved $35. It just added up to a better deal.
I like shopping with BBTS and have never had a problem with them. I feel bad cancelling so many preorders but I am a thrifty shopper. I go where the prices are lower.
Same here. Which lead's to my next response.......Thanks for the heads up, but BBTS hasn't wronged me so far, so I'll stick with them, even if it costs me a bit more.
Don't worry Joe, BBTS gets PLENTY of my money.....PLENTY. However, it seems that BBTS is in no shortage of people lining up for product....so if I back out, believe me, someone will gladly take my place.
Sorry Jin but this one I don't like as a G. I. Joe related character. It's a great custom but looks more fitting for Star Wars to me.
I agree....but a great effort nevertheless and 100% original.
No problem. Wanna sell it to me after the contest?
4/12 Update - still a 10 vote margin on the SWARM...with 2 days ago.
For those who don't know the rules (or just found out about them like I did)....there will be a run-off vote between the top 3 after the 14th, after which a definative winner is named.
The A-Team. Seriously.
@lol@ Right on!!
I echo a lot of what KD and Zans said. The possibilities are limitless.
I pre-ordered the Battle Packs....just a tad cheaper than BBTS.
Just a lit'l update here....looks like the BD Baroness put a little bit more distance between herself and the second place SWARM. 12 votes is the margin.
When does voting end??
Yeah, but none of these beat Crystal Ball from '05, Raptor from '06 and the whole Cobra-la gang from '07 at JoeCon.
Eh....what can ya do? You can stop buying them (as mentioned already here), for you army builders - buy less, or just keep buying at the same level you are accepting the price increase. I've never been much of an army builder, so I will fall into the last group. I am not willing to give up on my hobby that easy.
Whew.....got my order in on the 8th. But that does suck for people expecting the right assortment.
I am rooting for this one (mainly because the one I voted for clearly won't win). The SWARM figure is making a comeback. A couple of people on the GIJCC boards are pimping the fact that it "lights up". Let me see....half naked Baroness vs. a figure that looks like something from Starship Troopers and lights up. Definately TWO very distinct schools of thought here. @loll@
Like I said, SKIN TO WIN!
'Tis pretty... I am glad I'm getting 20 of them.
Freak!there OK. needs more black. I'm not feeling gristle too much. i wounder if Headman is going to be in this set. maybe gristle head on a Headhunters body will look much better.
Most likely the D.E.F, is going to be part of this set..
No Headman I do not thinkThese sets are soooo boring to me...
You know the drill.....be patient.
Looks like it is winning. You know what they say at wet t-shirt contests....SKIN TO WIN!
Ah yes, I see. And I voted.
Does anyone know if Leatherneck will be made in the 25th Anniversary Joes?
in G.I. Joe
I'd buy him....sure, why not?
