  1. Sienna Miller confirmed on Sydney radio tonight that the stars of the upcoming "G.I.Joe Rise of the Cobra" have signed for TWO (yes two!!) sequels to the film to be released in early August... Sienna Miller, Rachel Nichols, Channing Tatum and Marlon Wayans are all currently in Australia to promote the film... @firedevil@
  2. Hi, yeah i have bought 2. The one pictured and Battista. I do have to warn you though - the feet can be an issue. My Battista could not stand up at all. He was permanently doing ballet so i had to glue them flat. The figure pictured though is awesome!! I have started on a cartoonish head on Battista (which is sucking BTW), but the potential is awesome! They are a bit shorter than the 25th anniversary (don't really go to be honest) and the same size as the original figures. They're about the same height as the 25th anniversary baroness. Not too good for a big muscley man to be dwarfed by the girl!! That being said, the one i have that works (the one pictured) is amazing!! Go for it. The others look a bit crappy. The new ones at Toy Fair 08 kind of lost me i have to say!! Hopefully the final ones will be better. Perfect for a Big Boa conversion! I think the Microman hands could be very easily substituted for the ones included. One is in a fist, the other flat. Does anyone know of some clothes i could get to put on them?
  3. Internationally the perspective of CC is different to the US one from my experience. Many countries, inc. Australia, didn't get the cartoon so our perspective is always the comics or the filecards. The UK would be interesting, because they had the cartoon (Action Force) and also the comic where things were decidedly different. The CC (and his predecessor) in Action Force is hardcore!! Kicking arse and taking names. Wonder people in other countries thought? Personally i think the cartoon universe sucks!! Marvel and to a much lesser extent DD (the first stuff was good - recently it's been naff!!) have done a much better job representing good and evil, complex personalities, sub-plots and any form of character development in a "real world" environment! Mind you, that being said, if you grew up without the cartoon or the comic you had to make it all up and it was a lot more fun. Hell Snake Eyes was a bad guy when i used to play with them back in '83.
  4. So with this Sideshow announcement form Superbowl, does it not look like this GIJoe movie might at least start during the Vietnam War? The uniforms are primarily from that era, and visually it would have to be said, that it evokes a feeling of that war. Do you think there could either be a "time-bending" sub-plot to the movie? Soldiers from different eras? Or do you think it's a straight "start in the Vietnam War and then flash froward to now". They'd be pretty old for elite soldiers though. Anyway - just thoughts... As long as Cobra kicks arse, i don't care!!!!
  5. That CC is cool! Have you got some pics or a recipe!!! Great work!!! I noticed the Coils arms - what else?? The head is very nice... Oh and the Viper is very nice too!! More pics??
  6. Yeah i have to say i wasn't that thrilled with the last few waves, but this has really brought it all back. Hopefully we'll start to see more figs of this calibre soon!! Here's hoping Hasbro doesn't cancel the wave!! Oh and VH... i thought i was being subtle! Apparently i wasn't. Good to have you on board after all the verbal sparing!! @smilepunch@ I hope these pictures show people the possiblities. Oh and Joe - i didn't see the Hit and Run till you mentioned it. Good call!! With a bit of tinkering you could have a Footloose too... simple head swap even. Can't wait to make my own Eel... Now all i need is an Australian importer so i can get the case. @bounce@
  7. I've noticed a few of the old school critics of Sigma Six turning their opinion around in recent times - and i think this will certainly help change many many other people's opinions too: http://gijoeclub.com/previews.cfm These look fantastic. An Alpine-esque guy, and two great looking military figures! Actual guns - AK-74 and MP5 by the look of it. Three GREAT looking figures!! After the recent Recondo and other more military figures, maybe Hasbro have finally worked out what to do with Sigma Six. I really can't wait for these 3!!
  8. Not too sure if this has been a topic before, but i recently bought a Chief Torpedo off eBay and i have to say it's one of my favourite figures. Chief Torpedo from YoJoe.com I'd never seen it before, but loved the look of it - but now i have it, i'm absolutely smitten!! Are there any underrated figures not often mentioned or glossed over that you really love? Maybe something simple like Viper V5 or Fast Blast Viper V2. Something quite simple, maybe not glamorous but is in your Top 10 figures? Not a chance for the glory hounds to post their obscure figures (don't we get enough of that?) just a fun topic to highlight the sometimes overlooked... May be a naff topic - but thought it might be fun.
  9. Anyone else worried about this: http://www.hisstank.com/forum/attachment.p...mp;d=1180916763 Apparently Snake Eyes is "infantry" and Gung Ho is "Recondo"??? Hello?!!!! Some one in Hasbro miss this typo?? Figs look cool though!!
  10. That looks great!!! Haven't been too impressed with the colours on the others so far - but this looks like a mighty improvement. Well done - can't wait to see more!!
  11. That trooper helmet is cool!! Anyone ordered from this guy before? Are they reliable and quality?!! http://cgi.ebay.com/GI-Joe-Cobra-Trooper-W...1QQcmdZViewItem It looks awesome - but to be sent to me in Oz, it will be quite pricey. Thus the caution...
  12. For Australian readers - i found a fair heap of them in Sydney. At least 4 of the Galactic marines and a few Airborne Troopers. (The Galactic marine's helmet comes off BTW!!!) Anyway... maybe our case assortment is different from yours but i've seen them around. Maybe i got lucky...?!!
  13. Anyone notice they f*#ked up on the "Cobra Trooper" package art? They put the Cobra Officer's head on it - little crest and all!! Ooooops... We're off to a good start!!! Still will give them the benefit of the doubt - the Snake Eyes kicks arse!!
