  1. I’m frustrated too and YES, consistency is really important to me big time. I get burned every time Hasbro reinvents the wheel. It’s probably clear that we are pretty much at the mercy of the movies’ success. Hasbro should just go the MOTU route and make consistent, quality, classic figures and have the run-of-the-mil junk sold en masse to the retailers. We’re almost there anyway with $15 a figure and pathetic distribution.
  2. Nice work! Especially like the painted sword stand in the center back.
  3. Kinda weird even though I like the Rock a lot. Someone somewhere else mentioned that he'd make for a better Torpedo (overlooking his size). THAT i could easily see. Rock is too serious to be making rhymes. I hope he wouldn't do that in the movie. Otherwise good for him.
  4. I would have picked up at least one but wouldn't go bananas and army build him. It is definitely an interesting looking figure and think it has great sculpting, parts and detail. No real loss to me though and judging by the other comments, I'm not surprised he got axed. Probably a smart move on their part. Hope they use mold and parts for someone else more practical.
  5. Wasn't a Sgt. Hacker fan but that Hawk figure screamed computer dude to me so he's my POC Mainframe. I think also the figure might have worked a lot more as Hawk for me if he weren't so beefy. I dunno just my opinion.
  6. Yeah this SE figure definitely had slice & dash in mind. Cool
  7. Congrats! I bet you're happy! It's been dry out this way. Hopefully these start trickling down to retail soon and at humane prices. So far online has been in the lead.
  8. Unfortunately no. I'm too poor nowadays. My brother in law hooked me up with some copies of the beginning story arc with Chuckles, Jinx, and the Baroness. That was great, and also I read some of the first few issues of the regular series. It was ok. I'd like to catch up. The series has gone up to #167 or something like that. Are any of the POC or ROC characters, vehicles, and designs in these as well? (ie Storm Rider, Bench Press, City Strike Firefly, etc)
  9. I thought the same. Wouldn't mind having a couple. I foresee some potential Raiden customs...
  10. No complaints on this one either. I like pretty much all of their stuff but they're out of my price range. Agreed he does resemble Nunchuk. Now bring on Lady Jaye and Cover Girl. Woot!
  11. It doesn't look like we're getting new Celebration cardbacks. Who knows. What gave me a sudden scare was not knowing if the new Cobra Trooper and Viper now released are POC, given that they may release (and they probably will) a "30th" anny version which would be different. For army builders, this sucks because if the first crop is more desirable, and decide to wait for the anticipated new releases, we miss out. If we buy now, and the newer version is better, we get burned. History repeats itself. lol Anyway I like both but those 30th cardbacks shown at the Con are pretty nice lookin too. I'm in the Bay Area (San Francisco) and Target has been selling pretty high. Alpha vehicles like Doom Cycle sell for 19.99! I have never seen wave 3, let alone a Shock Trooper in the wild out here at these stores. At a 9.99 price point, it's a seller's market for online markups. (sorry getting sidetracked from original topic)
  12. Was POC wave 5 scrapped for the 30th anniversary theme? I noticed that the card art for them are not being released with what was shown at the Con... http://i.toynewsi.com/g/index.php?mode=view&album=2011_Joe_Con%2FHasbro%2FDay_1&pic=IMG_3614.jpg&dispsize=800&start=40 I've been digging for answers everywhere but had no luck. (I'm still here just too shy to post anymore) Also, what's up with Target selling Joes now for 9.99?! (rediculous especially like anyone's gonna pay that for Arctic Destro @rolleye@ ) HTS always out of stock. Walmart and TRU is a joke.
