  1. I've been saying it since day one..........the bad smell coming from this movie has been lingering for a while now. They did trick me a couple times into getting excited. But then stuff like this comes around and totally brings me back to Earth. Granted, these figures don't have any accessories but they still look like crap. Its like a GI Joe/ Captain Power/MegaForce......thing. @grumpy@ Crap.........
  2. That's kind of a shame that Sarge doesn't own the rights to his wrestling persona.......I know McMahon tries to keep the rights to the characters he creates........I know a while back The Rock had to fight to get the rights to "The Rock" when he left. So he could go by it in movies and whatever else he wanted to use it for. Certain wrestlers have the rights to their in ring personas..........Bret Hart (Hitman), Hogan (Hulk Hogan, I know he got into some stuff with Marvel a couple years ago). It's a shame cause I really want a Slaughter.........."A ditty bag, an itty bitty Ditty Bag!!!" Plus, he had the cajones to invade the TerrorDrome with no weapons........gotta respect that. @loll@
  3. I want a Slaughter............No Doubt......he was awesome when I was younger. A real life Joe....... #US1# If Hasbro doesn't have his rights then how can they make a Roddy Piper figure?? (WWE and Jakks probably have a blanket contract or something, if this is even a probable rumor.) Plus, they just made a Slaughter a couple years ago and he made an appearance at the Con? I'm thinking they just haven't made one.
  4. Great Artwork..........that Cobra Trooper on the far right seems to be looking right at you, the reader. Creepy.......
  5. Cause that happened in the 80's......... @smilepunch@
  6. HOLY GUACAMOLE!!!!! I'm all about these........its funny cause as a kid I loved Tiger Force stuff and I believe that a part of me collecting Joes as an adult is that it makes me feel like a kid again. So sign me up........ Most of you hate them......that's fine.....but I think they are a fun addition to the 25th/Modern era line. I'm loving it....... My only complaint is that awful Wild Bill......not a Tiger stripe to be seen on that guy........They could've at least given us a TF Ace or something. For the record I like all the sub-groups..........now where's Slaughters Marauders???
  7. I love threads like this...........Child World, TRU.....(When TRU had aisles full of figures) and Kay-Bee. I remember as a kid going to TRU was an EXPERIENCE. I miss those days. This was also when Kay-Bee Toys was a reliable store to get stuff. Wal-Mart and Target kind of have destroyed the above stores though. I really wonder how TRU stays afloat sometimes.
  8. I've always liked picking up Joe related items like Lunchboxes, Party Favors, ColorForms, etc. (I even got a couple Sigma Six figures, just cause its Joe related) That's why I'm kinda interested in these..........I'll probably get a couple Muggs too.....just because they are something different. I have a random GI Joe merchandise shelf that these will look good on. I went to 3 Targets, and 2 Walmart's today........all of them had Combat Heroes falling off the pegs....Wave 1. One of the Targets had no Modern Figures and had Combat Heroes on the pegs as filler. All the stores by me have them right next to the single carded and comic pack figures.......
  9. I was just wondering what you guys think about the Combat Heroes burning the pegs? I don't know about around you guys but these things NEVER move around me. It seems like they aren't even touched..........its a shame too. I want everyone from Waves 2 and 3.......but I really have no need for anyone in the 1st wave. Wave 1 is pretty weak IMO.......Very plain looking characters for the most part. Duke is cool and all but he's pretty plain looking.......the more cooler looking characters look better in this style IMO. Crimson Guard, Destro, BBQ, Snake-Eyes.......even the Scarlett looks cool.
  10. I'm the same way.........plus the UBP is almost guaranteed to end-up in the after Christmas Target clearance aisle. Cool Custom UBP too........... #US1#
  11. Just a heads up to you guys.....over at WWEShop they have a great sale on their DvD's. Up to 67% off of a lot of titles. I got the WrestleMania Anthology for $109.00 shipped!!!. (I used a 20% off 100 dollar purchase or more coupon) But still the set was 119.00 before the coupon. Triple H and Shawn's DvD's are like 15 bucks......plus they have a bunch of T-shirt/DvD combo's. I've wanted that WrestleMania Anthology forever.........finally found it cheap enough. Less than 30 bucks a piece.
  12. I picked them up........mostly for Cutter.....I wanted the extra IG's too.....I got them before I knew about the Comic Pack. I don't mind them too much........they are nothing special....and Cutter deserves a little more love than a Gung-Ho head......its lame.....I don't even really want to display him cause its Gung-Ho in a Coastie uniform.........but you're telling me they couldn't put some camo on Starduster???
  13. Apparently, a while back DC put out an Atlas of the DC universe........just a one shot or something......found some info online about it. I got this info from the supermanhomepage.com, there's some other cool info over there.......I had no idea Metropolis is supposedly in my home state. I always knew Gotham was on the east coast.......but had no idea that Metropolis was so close..........I don't know how accurate this is but it is from DC.......I don't know how old it is either......looks from the 80's by the cover.
  14. The difference with Greyskull is that he fit in nicely with the mytho's and figures from the 200X line.......that's the whole reason why I wanted him.......you really can't use him as a barometer for the popularity for the new classic themed line. He kinda falls in with the 200X line.
  15. We can't give them THAT much credit seeing as how the already put out both figures. that way. What's more disappointing then the fact they didn't fix the hands on the Viper (understandable) is the fact I think most people that WANTED to army build the Iron Grenadier already got them WITH all those extra Destros. This kinda seems like a slap in the face when they could included a plethora of other characters in that pack. exactly. I already friggin bought a bunch of Vipers, and 3 comic packs with IG/Destro.... sucks big time. Thanks Hasbro @lol@ they should have done it with BATS instead Yeah, I saw them the other day and at first was excited........then I remembered that I already have 3 IGs with the TRU and comic packs.......and I snagged a bunch of single carded Vipers a while back. It was weird though leaving that set........it was hard fighting my "buy it now or you won't see it again" wiring. But I didn't really need it. You know for the most part Army Building has been fairly easy with the Modern line.......from what I've seen.
  16. 20 bucks is 5 dollars too much for these figures..........at least to me. I've been looking at the pics and reviews of the figures for a while now and was tempted to pick up the He-man just to see what it was all about. I thought they were 15.......went to Mattycollector and my memory was refreshed that they are 20 bucks. I think that is a big reason.......plus I bet there are some scared collectors out there knowing Mattel's track run with this line. Why invest in something if it doesn't look good right from jump.
  17. Serious spoilers to follow: The rumour is that the Black Glove is...... Thomas Wayne, Bruce Wayne's father......who somehow survived the gun wound. This would be the impetus..........the ONLY thing that could make Batman give up the cowl, because it is the supposed death of his parents that is the sole reason for Batman's war on crime. If his parents or one of his parents are not dead, then his reason for fighting crime go out the window. At least this story arc..... That's the worst thing I've heard in a long time............I hope that's not true....I'm like not mad just disappointed in DC for doing that if its true. That's kinda like saying Superman isn't an alien at all and was a test tube baby/project thing at Cadmus this whole time............awful. Its just disappointing....... @grumpy@
  18. I know I'm gonna have to pick up a cheap dollar store horse for that Cobra Commander........I really like it but he needs a horse. @horse@
  19. I'm surprised this is even a topic..........
  20. Just because you have a degree doesn't mean you automatically get selected for OCS....the person needs to apply and kinda has to want to be an Officer. The pay is way more......but there are guys that are enlisted that want nothing to do with being an officer. Its entirely up to that individual if they want to go Officer or not. I really like the 2-pack......although Mainframe kinda has a pissed off look to him. Maybe he's still mad at Zarana for dissing him or the fact that he seems to have lost his backpack....
  21. I'm liking pretty much everyone in this set........(on a side note the animal upgrades are cool too, flapping wings Polly and "about to strike" Timber.) That Viper is awesome..........the only problem I have is why did I have to buy 2-3 versions of these figures before Hasbro finally gets in right.........What am i gonna do with the crappy Flint/Zartan/Viper/Lady Jaye etc.....before this. Granted, no one is forcing me to buy these sets when they come out but still.........I'm getting a little tired of Hasbro's trial and error............it is making figures better but its not really helping my pocket......... All and all I'll be getting these sets though......maybe just to keep MIB as a display set or something.......cool improvements overall though.
  22. That's the funny thing......I've pretty much seen every wave on the shelves at one point or another. I usually pick them up for friends of mine.
  23. Wow......now I'm kicking myself for not collecting this line from jump. They all look great.......
  24. Kim Kardashian.......someone who is famous for being famous dressed up as WW this Halloween......She looks more like her than Beyonce. Granted the Black tights are terrible......but she was probably just shy going all out. (Which is weird, usually people like this jump at the chance to show skin). She's got the look in a weird way. I'm not saying she should be WW at all.......I was just pointing this out......most women have no clue about WW......other than her outfit and her name Wonder Woman. In a way I guess all women believe they can be WW. But I'll bet you 10 bucks that Beyonce probably thinks that WW is like Batman.....an ordinary woman that dresses up like WW to fight crime or whatever. Plus, I'm thinking Kardashian has some Greek in her some where.
