  1. Life without army building: Cobra Commander: Officer, I need you to build a defensive position on the south side. Infantry Officer: Sir, Yes Sir! *Turns to single trooper* Build a defensive position on the south side. Trooper: Why are you always picking on me?? I just finished cleaning the bathrooms, mopping the halls, and shining the fangs on the Commander's throne. Now you want me to do this? Why?? Officer: You are the only trooper we have. That's why. Now shut up and do your job. Crimson Guard: Hey guys, what's up? Officer: Who the Heck are you supposed to be? CG: I am the ELITE soldier. Trooper: (Head in hands) Awwww crap.
  2. Hey guys. DNS Toys has the viper set and the plague set on preorder for 19.99 each. If you are going to order multiples, it is cheaper!!
  3. TF, If I remember right from when I put my Dragonhawk together, the pegs for the turbines were hexagonal - much like the interchangeable weapons systems. If you installed one turbine horizontally and the other one turn of the hexagon off from the first then, that would account for the 30 deg offset. Pull one turbine off, make sure to line up the two turbines and reinstall it. It has been a while since I put mine together so I may be wrong, but it is worth a try. David

    I have to ask. How do you know that he is a guy? While living in New Orleans, I learned to spot guys dressed as girls pretty well...out of necessity. One of my friends could never tell very well. The Native Americans now call him "Dances with Men" - don't ask. I don't SEE any tell-tale signs. No Adam's apple or such. Just wondering....
  5. First, go to the store, and talk to the manager. Carry the product with you so you can show him/her in detail the problem. If that does not work, hope that you used a credit card for the purchase. I always do...even tough I pay off the balance every month. You can call the credit card company and block payment for a defective product. Let TRU do the work to get the money from you. When they call/write you to tell you that you owe them for a product that was purchased and then the credit payment was rejected, you can politely offer to return the product to their store, in order to rectify the situation. I have never had to do this personally, but having the peace of mind helps.
  6. I noticed that on my copy a long time ago, but since no one else mentioned it that I could find on the boards, I just dismissed it. Watch it again. I think Serpentor refers to the other Joes as Action Force as well. I think it may be a soundtrack from the International or British version.
  7. I had several long talks with some of the guys at the Hasbro booth. I was told that the DTC line had a huge amount of overstock sitting in warehouses after we, the fans, bought our fill. That is when TRU was approached about carrying the line. TRU has been happy so far with the results of the sales from DTC, but it is a waiting game to see if enough sells to warrant any future waves. They honestly have no answer from the suits within Hasbro about whether they will be able to continue the line beyond wave 4. The heads of the company would be crazy to okay future waves that would just sit as inventory. Hasbro is a huge public company. The bottom line is that the company owes allegiance to the shareholders to do things that keep the company solvent. As an investor within the stock market, that is what I expect the companies of which I own stock to do. Every one of the Hasbro guys I talked to was straight forward about one thing. The DTC line would have failed if it had remained solely Direct to Consumer instead of branching out to TRU. These guys were also fans of the 3 3/4 line. They all said they grew up with that line and wanted to see it continue. As long as DTC does well at TRU and possibly other outlets, then we WILL see more. Speculation either positive or negative at this point is just that, speculation. However, the success of the brand as a whole is largely based on Six Sigma at this point. Like it or not, Six Sigma has been a huge success for them this year, brandwise.
  8. I disavow any knowledge of any Gary or David. By the way, while I was in the showroom, one of the door prize winners announced over the intercom was Jack Hard. My apologies if that is anyone's real name, but that was hilarious. "It is time for the next door prizes. Jack Hard, you have thirty minutes to come claim your prize. Jack Hard." @loll@
  9. yep should be, but cant change it lol. I was tired, leave me alon lol Tired!?!? Don't you mean drunk?? Don't let Skarapz fool you. I just roomed with him at the con and he came in every night smelling of booze and cheap women.. No wait... that was me. Nevermind.
  10. This is the kind of thing people get in trouble for you know, Gary and David! -Kevin Codenames people!! Codenames!! Geez, do you want to get us killed by some crazed Joe stalker?? (Stalker, get it??)
  11. The invention of the internet will allow you to see all of the product, or lack of it, from the comfort of your home. If the only reason to go was to see the new stuff, then I would not waste my money. I am going to spend time wth friends and make new friends. Also, the cops of NAwlins give the best beatings. They aren't like other cops who hit you until you go down. No, they beat you until something is broken. That's the way I like my beatings!! Good stuff. @smilepunch@
  12. I'll give you 8 of the removeable helmet CG's for the six troopers.
  13. My excuse? I was living in New Orleans when the world came to an end!! I made out okay, but I moved out of state about two months ago. I almost never have a chance to get online right now, so I never post much. Don't worry, I still lurk enough to know you have been up to no good! By the way, the only places anyone sane would want to go in New Orleans are in great shape!! I'll even take anyone insane to any of the other places! - David
  14. Yeah, I'm in. I'm David(forgot his name)!! Yo, Skarapz. I've been trying to call you. My number is the one with the area code 662 that's been showing up on your cell.
  15. Well, I just about had a heart attack, but not about the price increase. When some of you mentioned how much you had spent on DTC, I decided to go back to my past orders (there were seven of them) and do some math. Since the site opened in July, I have spent......... wait for it....... a little over $2000...........where is a doctor when you need one?
