  1. Am I the only one that likes that Jungle BAT? I mean yeah......the BATS are kinda like a bull in a china shop (Like why do they need camo?)........but I want that figure.
  2. Apparently, this is like an alternate JoeVerse.........this storyline actually made it into USAtodays life section. They cover comic story lines regularly.........supposedly that CC that gets the bullet in the dome is not the 80's CC that we all know and love.(That CC is apparently still around in one of their other titles.) He's been gone a long time in this story line; CC is more a title than an actual character in this JoeVerse.......Here's the article. http://www.usatoday.com/life/comics/2011-01-20-CobraCivilWar_N.htm
  3. I'm missing the whole "Best of the 80's" set.......having Alpine and CC would have been cool and all; but as a fan I just wanted a complete MASS Device. I thought that was one of the coolest things about these sets. I searched high and low for that set.......I've only ever set my eyes on it once. It was at WizardWorld Philly and some scalper wanted 100 bucks for it. (To make it even worse it still had the $15.00 Ross price tag on it) He wouldn't even bargain for the thing.......and he still had it at the end of the weekend.
  4. Seriously, anyone else still really irked at the fact that they have an unfinished Mass Device sitting around. Its just sitting in my Joe junk pile.....(with a bunch of other incomplete vehicles and broken Joes.) They are even hard to come by on ebay these days. I know I'm beating a dead horse but its just something that really "Grinds My Gears" if you know what I mean. Just my little nerd rant for the month........anyone else??
  5. Yeah, its still kinda lame when you go to the store and have no reason to go to the toy aisle you know.........My fiancee is always like "You going to toys?" and its kinda disappointing when I say "Na, I got everything right now." The hunt is always a little fun. Breaks are cool as long as they aren't too long. I think the last time I bought a Joe was September???
  6. To be honest I really haven't paid any attention to this incarnation of Joe......I saw it was on TV the other night and watched like 5 minutes of it and was good. As for this being the end of GI Joe........I doubt it. A lot of these replies sound a lot like the arguments that were made about 4-5 years back.....just take out "Renegades" and put in "Sigma 6" and it will be the same thing. The GI Joe we know and love will always be around in one form or another........there will be plenty of goods for us to spend our hard earned money on. As long as they keep the POC figures coming....I'll be happy.
  7. It's good to hear that POC is going to be hanging around......I'm just wondering how someone would know how you are getting a black HISS and not a brown one? Isn't the HISS on the box art black? Even for the brown HISS tanks? I could be wrong.....
  8. No one really mentioned that this was taken from the second story arc from the Superman/Batman comic from like 2004 I think. The art was done by Micheal Turner and was awesome. The first arc was Public Enemies....which was equally good. I thought it was great.....the action was unreal.
  9. "Time to make the donuts." he looks like the Dunkin Donuts guy. Lame face......
  10. How much you wanna bet that they are eyeing Michelle Rodriguez for the movie version. Or that its coming down the line. More Joes changing backgrounds and such. Its not just changing white characters to minorities that makes me say "Really!?" I'd be equally pissed if they made Roadblock a white head-banger.....(Just like that TERRIBLE "Michelangeo" Beachhead from Spytroops")Put Jinx in there or something.....or even the female Dial-tone.
  11. Meh, I'm not really worried about this line and cartoon....I've still to this day never even seen an episode of "Sigma 6." (I picked up a couple figures just to have that era represented in my Joe "museum", but thats as far as I went with it) It does look pretty bad from the couple of stills I have seen though. Not really liking he premise either....I'm going to wait until I see the figures before I pass total judgement on this imagining of Joe. The only thing that is bothering me is that POC will be put on hold for this line to hit the pegs. Other than that this will just be a way for me to put funds towards my RAH collection. I'll be saving money when this comes out......
  12. I'm from Delaware and I'm interested in going to this but I hope there will be a good amount of GI Joe collectors there. I went to WizardWorld in Philly this past year and was really upset with the lack of vendors selling GI Joe goods. I used to clean up at WW in Philly.....there used to be a good amount of guys selling Joes.....this year I think I saw maybe 3 vendors that had Joes of any kind. The only Joe item I walked away with was the "Defense of Cobra Island" set. The guy didn't even have the "Assault" set.... Some guys just had a bin with incomplete Joes.....I mean there was a decent amount of 25th stuff....(but I have all of that).....RAH was almost no where to be found. Basically I don't want to drive up there and it be nothing but Transformers stuff....with a little of Joe thrown in.
  13. Wow, just like the topic I started yesterday......I had no idea about any of this stuff! I knew we were getting a Low-Light...but that was really about it. I really like that Snake-Eyes, that Astronaut/Bomb Disposal looking figure is really cool. Heavy weapons Destro is a must pick-up......I'm really liking where this line is going.....its a shame that its going to end for "Renegades".
  14. Yeah, I don't know about Storm Shadow.....the same thing with that Snake-Eyes from Wave 2.
  15. I really hadn't given POC any of my attention until recently. I saw the pics when it was first announced, but to be honest I didn't click on all the thumbnails. I think I looked at Beachhead and was really happy, then looked at Duke and was like "Meh." I really liked the new cardbacks and was just happy to finally see the movie line go away. I was lucky enough to snag an Alley-Viper and CC when I first saw them and really didn't pay much attention to the other figures in the wave. "I don't need another Snow-Job" was what I said to myself. But I found the wave 2 figures in Target last week and let me tell you I was pleasantly surprised. I picked up Dusty, Arctic Destro, Zartan, and the Jungle Viper. I'm a Destro guy so he was an automatic pick-up. The Jungle Viper was too cool in person to not pick-up....I was skeptical when I first saw some of the initial pics of him......but he's damn cool when you open him up. Dusty is pretty cool too......although he could use some more accessories. Zartan is the only one I have yet to open, but the figure looks great and all the goodies inside with him look great too. I went back the next night to Wal-Mart because they still had some of Wave 1 warming the pegs. I got Beachhead, Snake-Eyes and Snow Job.....passed on Firefly (reminds me of Wraith too much, thats not Firefly to me, or even a updated one)Snow Job is really cool when you open him up and get him "all geared up" His accessories really make him......Same with Beachhead....the guy comes with a bunch of weapons and fins. Snake-Eyes is pretty standard, but I needed one for my POC shelf. I'm probably gonna snag Recondo when I get a chance. I don't know why I didn't. But I'm glad to see Hasbro start giving us some cool accessories to make these figures even better. I know when I was little playing with RAH figures....the accessories sometimes made a mediocore figure a great one. POC kinda snuck up on me as a Joe collector.......kinda nice to be pleasantly surprised.
  16. I've been on the fence for a while now with joining the club.....The Dial-Tone just might get me to fork over my money. I really like the idea of being able to "complete" a Joe line. This is a reason I was so mad over the Slaughter fiasco. But I always liked Dial-Tone.....I'm probably going to wait until I see some pictures before I make my final decision. I tell ya what though.....he better come with his signature backpack. #US1#
  17. Yeah, its out of control.....for a character that most of Joe fans supposedly loathe. I did pretty much the same thing. He was up then gone......I didn't really have a problem with either of the last 2 exclusives. PDD Destro and CC.... (I didn't even try for that ROC Destro).
  18. How about a Pythona figure??? I think it's crazy that we still haven't gotten her in one form or another. Whether it be RAH or the 25th line.....I think she's due.
  19. So I recently just moved into a bigger place with plenty of room for showing off my goods. (Joes) Anyway.....I have stuff all over the floor in the Office/Joe room. Since I have all this room now I was going to display my Joes by line....RAH separate from JvC and so on. Previously, everything had been just displayed together. They were split up Joe/Cobra before. So I have a tub full of JvC/VvV/Spytroops stuff and it really annoys the crap out of me.....some of the figures are downright fugly......Maybe I've just grown in the past 5 years or so from when I first started picking up the stuff.....or the 25th/Modern era stuff is SOOOO above and beyond what JvC only wished it could have been. The bottom line is every time I look in that JvC/Spytroops/VvV tub I want to throw it in the dumpster..... Even some of the TRU exclusives from that time are pretty ugly.....
  20. The opening in the first "Blade" was awesome......the set-up and the finish. Awesome.... The end of the 1st Ninja Turtles movie.....taking on the whole Foot Clan and Shredder on the roof. Great Stuff (highly underrated comic-movie too)Mikey- "At what point did we....lose control here?" Transformers 2- This whole movie is a mess....except for some of the fight scenes. The opening sequence with the Air Force dropping Prime out of the C-130.....he transforms in the air; hits the ground running and then transforms again. Then deals with that Decepticon... Pure awesomeness!!! Too bad the rest of the movie was awful....with a couple exceptions.
  21. I wanted to see this SO bad when I first saw the trailer......it wasn't playing anywhere near me. (mainly big cities) I couldn't wait for the DvD to come out and I had to order it from Amazon. I couldn't find it anywhere. I watched it and thought it was AWESOME! It was funny as hell and has some good action in it.....I wish it got a little more publicity though. It's a great spoof movie....way better than any of that "Disaster Movie" and "Superhero Movie" crap.
  22. I snagged this set a while back at Shopko for like 12.99....I couldn't believe it when I did. I had always wanted to pick it up but the 50 dollar price tag was just too much at the time. It really was a great show for the times..... I know comic fans and kids these days are spoiled.....but I remember when this, the Batman movies and the Superman movies were all us geeks had when it came to live-action stuff. I remember begging my Mom to stay up and watch it......she usually let me. I was around 10 when the show was on......
  23. I hope he has a 25th/Modern era cardback........I'm liking him although he does look kinda weak.....Sarge should have some more definition. I'm looking forward to him though......I'm really not set on either version either. As long as I get one I'll be happy.
  24. This figure is all kinds of awesome........160 bucks is still a bit much for me to jump in head first though. I may just pick up a couple of these eventually to supplement my 3 3/4 inch collection. That face is just straight pissyness.....Beachhead is the loveable a-hole of the Joe team. That's pretty much the vibe I've always gotten from the character. These are really starting to tempt my wallet into opening though.......I have a feeling when we eventually see that Scarlett......I'm gonna be ordering a couple of these.
