  1. I'll get the new one and likely make him a new character. The original BR is just too iconic, despite being 11 feet tall compared to the others.
  2. The day that fat idiot's opinion matters to me is the day I voluntarily sit through a Meredith Baxter movie. And if you're a woman whose man spends $1500 monthly on anything besides rent (and he's not a millionaire) you don't bring him on Dr Phil, you leave him. I don't think I've ever spent more then $80 monthly on toys ($20 a week) and even then I think its a bit much. Especially now that its $40-$45 to fill my tank.
  3. The HAS is crap, but I am one of those people who skipped the Anti-Venom, Desert, and Greenshirts, so I'm digging the Roadblock and Snake Eyes. I thought and continue to think that the Imperial set is garbage. Great reviews as always.
  4. Wow, I'm some sort of heathen. I just toss mine in a large rubbermaid bin & be done with it. The only ones I keep in baggies are Cobras with a symbol which could be scratched off, like the new CGs, comic Firefly, comic Storm Shadow, etc.

    Wow, Casey didnt last long at all did he. What a train wreck. Hopefully Jerwa or Dixon will jump on.
  6. I mix 'em all, but I draw the line at non-o-ring guys.
  7. Those all came out great, awesome paint work. Roadblock is amazing, I'll frankly be shocked if Hasbro doesn't poop out an official RB based on Barrage at some point.
  8. Well he might be the type of friend who has to rag on everything. A few of my college friends are like that (I'm 27 now). We'll tease each other about stupid things and then move on. They are largely ignorant about TFs, but saw BM Jetstorm in my room once and said "An original Decepticon, quick, smash it and destroy its Ebay value!" LOL So far they haven't actually mocked me or called me a baby or anything for collecting. Personally I am proud to be a geek and be different, but I dont shove it down people's throats. I do hide them when people come over, not because I am ashamed, but people always want to play with them and end up breaking them! **EDIT** I agree with what KNDY said. Its very easy to let this hobby get the best of you. Last week I bought the GI Joe Heavy Assault and Crimson Shadows as soon as I saw them when I could have waited. 2 days later I wandered into a KB and spotted Energon Galvatron for $25. Thats $65 in one week on toys. I also had to buy gas and breakfast/lunch that week, and found myself coming up short. I had to charge my gas and realized I have to limit myself. I'm no completist, I only have 4 Cybertron figures so far. I've decided to limit myself to no more then $20 a week on toys, $10 or $0 if I can help it.
  9. It wouldnt surprise me in the slightest if it went to a pay service. I've long enjoyed the site (since the '98s came out) and I do appreciate the volunteer work that went into it. I guess I'll have to get that Bellomo book, for the old stuff anyway.
  10. Not really rare but I had a WOLF with Ice Viper that I loved to death, and it vanished into the ether.
  11. Peronally I think these are a poor value. $20 gets you six GI Joe figures, yet only 3 SW figures. Lame.
  12. He's nice but by no means perfect.
  13. Cool interview. Like the new sig Royal.
  14. Precisely why I dont even bother talking to the employees when I shop for toys. Caveat emptor, I understand that its a gamble getting what I want.
  15. Get any of the Decepticon deluxes, and Storm Jet. The Autobot deluxes are crap.
  16. I have never mixed the two, but I have a POTF2 Expanded Universe Airspeeder thats just *dying* to be inducted into Cobra's air fleet.
  17. The Carl Weathers guy kicks ass....damn shame he comes with that freaked-out expression dude. The other two figures are kinda cool too. I may consider these.
  18. http://cgi.ebay.com/GI-Joe-Custom-Figure-D...1QQcmdZViewItem Git down wit yo bad self.
  19. pesatyel, odd that you mention Gung-Ho vs Zarana, I remember seeing rows upon rows of nothing but this pack (at least 30 of them) at the KMart on 35 in Jersey around that same time, lol.
  20. I thought it was a decent issue and I liked the Baroness part in the beginning. I'll pick up #3.
  21. Looks like I'll be getting that episode at least 3 times, then.
  22. http://adctalk.com/index.php?act=ST&f=2&t=...0#entry15933591 Saw this thread in the GI Joe section. This gent makes custom weapons for your 3 3/4'' figures, which have been getting rave reviews all over the web. He recently took suggestions for the next wave, and I suggested a P38 Walther, and so he just announced that its in the 2nd wave! Finally, my Cobra Commanders will get the weapon Hasbro should have given him ages ago. He has a lot of other great weapons lined up, if you're into GI Joe as I am.
  23. Wicked! Those all sound great, I'm all over those Viper rifles, the RPG, and the sci-fi blaster, and most of all Megatron! I'm so happy my suggestion made it! Hell I'll end up getting one for each of my Cobra Commanders!
  24. Sweet pics. Lots of cool army builders too.
  25. I'll swear by that old Amazon list. I'm sure they can easily frankenstein most of those out of existing molds.
