  1. Brian did the walk through of the hotel today, so I wouldn't be surprised if we hear very soon where next year's con will be. I'm going, and since you guys aren't, more for me! @bounce@ jk. I also have to politely disagree about the exclusives, I liked them, and considering how well a lot of this years stuff sold, so did a lot of other people. Not trying to start an argument or a flame war, just expressing how I feel about them. The con may get a little smaller, but that doesn't bother me. I think Brian does a great job with the GI JOE Collectors Club (Mastercollecter is just another newsletter the Club newsletter goes out in every month.) Brian also recognizes that it's 3 3/4 collectors who are dominating the cons right now. I also don't think they are going to merge the cons. @$@

    Tru Sale

    I tried and they didn't know anything. when I mentioned the sku they looked at me like a deer caught in headlights.
  3. congrats! That is awesome news! Hope you post pics soon!
  4. I'm not using the TRU version for Joe, I'm using it with my Jungle Vipers and Green Stormshadows...
  5. same message... bandwidth exceeded.
  6. there's some good stuff on there that I would buy anyway, just to turn around and sell, either parted out or complete. I don't know if you noticed but he's got Timber packed in with Frostbite. Also, make sure he knows that his stuff won't be worth as much as some that he's finding on ebay because it's either broken (skyhawk, devilfish, water moc) or mssing pieces (snow cat, sharc, BAT chest hologram). If you wanted the whole lot, offer between 75 and 100 for it, sell what you don't want and make your money back. Otherwise figure out how much you are willing to pay for the items you want and then go from there. I paid $15 recently for a good condition, complete mocc with the variant copperhead, if that's any help.
  7. yeah, that's why we nominate, discuss, and vote all at the same time. There were some figures that the only people who voted were the ones who nominated them. There is a simple rule to keep in mind: The figure you love the most someone else hates, and the one you hate the most, someone else loves.
  8. actually, according to DDD who was talking to a group of us at the Hasbro booth (he actually pulled it out from under the table and showed us) he said it was the final. I think it was out of some hands at that point... All the Hasbro guys seemed upset about it. Don't blame the Hasbro guys too much about this. I think it was actually bean counters who are waiting for the line to die who insisted on major cost cutting, so they did this with the pack. Would also explain the night force bh and flint with the moray... when Duke and Roadblock/heavy duty is on the artwork.
  9. that is an amazing custom. I'm not a big Sarge fan, but I do like that one. Also like that you did him in Marauders colors.
  10. those joehio guys are awesome! You should see the movie that Jon made. It's pretty entertaining. I do have a question: I was going through my old email address (that I haven't used in a year) and saw an email for a CFB Yahoo group. The email was an invite (that has expired). Do/did we have a yahoo group? If so, how can I get in on it? We should figure out some communication between all of the members other than here...
  11. thanks for the info! I haven't seen that truck, how old is it? Makes me want to get my shelves built!
  12. Happy Birthday Tazz!! Hope you got yourself some more of those great buys you were showing me!!
  13. Texas would be nice since I live here. Like Brian said at the con "Whenever we ask 'Where do you want the con next year?' everyone answers 'At my house.' Well, I hope you have a big back yard and enough toilets to accommodate thousands of people!" New Orleans would be cool too and Boston would be great too. My wife loves Boston and would love to go back there for any reason. racer: are you in Texas? Where at?
  14. sorry about the double post, the computer had a hiccup!
  15. same thing happened to me, and I sent it out earlier in june...
  16. wow! nice pics! mmmm macaroni grill... fav italian place to eat! I have a few questions for you: What is the truck you have the HAL sitting on? Is the VAMP sitting next to the APC a custom? Where is the red dreadnok cycle from? Where did you get that taxicab? What toyline is it from? Is that a crystal ball custom with headman and the twins? nice stuff!! I'm hoping to have shelves up in my room and get it organized soon... thanks again for sharing those!
  17. wow! That A-10 looks fantastic! Great score!
  18. I plan on going to HTS first for all of my new stuff now. The service has been tremendous and even though they charge for shipping they are cheaper than anyone else. We are getting the figs for a penny cheaper than the other retailers are paying wholesale. Plus I think ordering direct from them helps support them. I plan on using them for all the new stuff and other retailers for the vintage. And TommyGoth: FIREFLY RULES!!! I can't wait for Serenity to come out!
  19. those are some great pics! And Card, if you look really close you can see part of my head next to your arm in the last photo at Chevy's! We all seem to have random body parts showing up in pics! Long live Card's arm! (And the rest of him...)
  20. So far everything I've seen in person is a hit. Wave 2 looks like a huge hit too. I can't wait to get the new hiss tank, as well as the rhino and rocc! Those are def hits!
  21. it would be nice if they had better extras. I only bought season 1 part 1 so I don't mind rebuying, and getting the rest.
  22. I think it will be CC with a battle helmet/hood. What is the name of the person who posted them?

    Tru Moray

    I'm going to get it, and use it with my jungle vipers, and jungle ninja's (all the "storm shadow" figures from the ninja strike set) The colors look like they'll match up. As far as flint and beach-head, kind of frustrating, but I think at this point they were trying to keep costs down as much as possible and get all the obligatory exclusives out to TRU. I think that's one reason the Heavy Assault squad is going to come with 3 greenshirts...
  24. Flint is right, there will be disagreements, and that is to be expected, the old saying "one man's junk is another man's treasure" certainly applies to CFB. That's why I like our voting system. Some of us were shocked at Deep Six v.1 or Sneak Peak getting nominated. When it came time to vote, they only got 1 (the nominator) or 2 votes. Those people, in turn were shocked at other nominees that most people thought were crappy, yet when the time came the votes just weren't there. I like the T-shirt idea, but I also like buttons or patches. I'll go along with pretty much anything, (just don't put me in a CFB tutu!) One thing we DO need, is a place for multiple threads. The DOB members have a place on the master collector board just for them. I know JC was very generous to sticky this thread, and I'm greatful, but it's getting kind of confusing. It would be nice, whether here, Mastercollector, or our own site to have a good message board with some of us as mods and have a bunch of organized threads. I suggest Master Collector, because we are trying to be recognized just like DOB is, and we should participate with MC in the same fashion. I pmed Don, but I'll say it here, just shoot me an email and let me know what needs to be done and how I can help. I'm transferring within my company so I've been hectic in the real world (and absent) from here lately, but I do still pop on and lurk when I can. Also, still working on the list of members. I no longer have last year's list. If someone still has it, please send it to me. This years is ready to go out, I just want to combine the two so I don't leave anyone out. If I don't get last years within the next couple of days, I'll just send out what I have. I have a feeling though, that CFB wise, it's pretty much going to be us that have been posting in this thread. There were several people at the meeting who have yet to show up here. Maybe when I send the list out it will jog some memories.
  25. Cmdr: I didn't know at the con, otherwise I would have shared the news there. Thanks for the congrats! Now if only we knew where the con was going to be held...
