  3. Finally! Thanks to Ottobratte at Joecustoms.com http://www.filedropper.com/cobrasrevenge
  4. Same here. My SDCC Destros were shipped from CA (with no packing material), not from PA as HTS orders usual are
  5. First game is tomorrow! Don't forget to enter and save your picks! Deadline is 5 minutes before each game
  6. Go here: http://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/pickem/register/joingroup and under "Join Private Group" enter the Group ID# and Password Group ID#: 3916 Password: yojoe and then click Join Group Only a limited number of spaces are available Good luck!
  7. My Marshall's only had sets #1 & #2 just like every other store in Delaware (or so it seems)
  8. Dojo & Banzai (they have ponytails - Dojo is bald w/o it) and I guess Zanzibar & Buzzer too Hannibal's hair is also kind of long
  9. Early on, I would crack open the chest of a (good) figure just to get the O-ring to use on another figure. I don't think I had a proper screwdriver or else the screw was stripped Also, when I got back into collecting in late 2001, I sold or traded off complete sets of accessories from my 91-94 figures (which were no longer mint anyway). I wish I didn't because I kept everything in great condition and once I decided that a complete collection of figures was a possibilty, it was kinda hard (and much more expensive) to get everything again. Of course, some of the accs. were not in the same condition as the stuff I sold Other than that, I've sold a few things for much less than I could have gotten and paid too much for some things too. But it all evens out
  10. Same here But then again, that is the only reason I have bought any 25th style figures: for certain accessories
  11. I included the punctuation for Mindbender and BAT and got them right. Their answers did not, but still said mine matched Did you type it the same way you did above? You would probably need a space between Dr. and Mindbender
  12. That's something I agree with and failed to mention in my earlier post. I had already done that by buying the JvC and VvV lines. They were similar but each differed in size from ARAH (as well as from each other) and were not entirely compatible. They simply don't fit in size-wise with my ARAH stuff, except for the VvV women. The 25th line is not similar to any of those three and that's enough of a reason
  13. I have bought a few, but mainly for the cool new accessories which are the highlight of the line. I also had to get all the MASS Device packs to just for the MASS I like that we finally got a "silver pads" Major Bludd and a cartoon shirt Ripper. I simply don't like the look of them. The gap in the chest and the bobble head bother me. It's not that bad with figures like BAT, Nemesis and Wraith or ones with some sort of covering for the chest, but it really sticks out on the others. The fact that they're difficult to take apart is another negative (boil water and pop open with sharp objects?) More articulation = more that could go wrong. It doesn't matter to me anyway if they can't bend at the waist. But neither 25th or ARAH are perfect. I judge an ARAH figure's articulation by seeing if the hands can interlock directly above the head (the equivalent of real people touching their opposite elbows) Many cannot lock hands due to short or bulky arms (and the necessary design of the arms in the torso) or wide V-shaped torsos. Money is another issue, but if I liked them, I would have found a way to collect them all. But if I sell the ones I have for sale, everything I've kept will be free
  14. I like Montezuma's Skeleton, but it shouldn't have been classified as a figure. It should have been treated as an "accessory" of Sepentor's. Since it is a figure, it should have been given better articulation So that pack and the Revenge of Cobra pack needed to come with another true figure
  15. Ack! How could I forget Zarana! Hmm... Zarana/Mainframe set would be neat too! Actually, it would be Zarana & Dataframe
  16. Completed my MASS today. Here are pics of my MASS and Weather Dominator
  17. from left to right, the elements should be: red, blue, yellow Watch out! Your MASS is gonna explode!
  18. Haven't seen DVD sets 3-5 or Tripwire & Diver with elements in any store. Got the last 3 DVD sets throught HTS. Had to order a case of Wave 8/12 to get the last two elements. My case should arrive Xmas Eve!
  19. From a Secret Santa so secret that not even you knew you were participating?
  20. Too late to file a claim with PayPal. Must be done 45 days after payment. I thought it was a 60 day limit, like with refunds :angry: @bs@
  21. I had always paid for HTS orders with my CC, but I had money in my PayPal balance this time, so I used it. I've made over a dozen orders and never had problems with them. Everything has been packed well and it's always been the correct items with fast Standard shipping (since I live relatively close to their PA shipping center) But their "Hassle-Free" Return Policy and customer service? :angry: PayPal has billing cycles and sends a statement? They're a little behind on replying to my e-mails. I don't bother calling again because I'd just get the same non-answer after waiting on hold forever. And, of course, I'd probably use a lot of inappropriate language over the phone
  22. Same thing with me. I paid with PayPal on the order I returned. Of course, I wanted to cancel the order hours after I made it on a Friday, days before they would actually ship it, but they refused Here's their most recent e-mail response: They even gave my case an "escalation number" to reference Gotta file a claim with PayPal I guess The HTS PayPal transaction is screwed up though. Under the date I placed the order, the type of transaction in my PayPal history says "Order" and it's status is "In Progress" But on the day they shipped it, there's another transaction with the usual "Payment" and "Completed" Since it has been a big hassle, I'm trying to get them to simply deduct the refund from an order I'd like to place which includes a few items that are currently out of stock. I didn't want to place another order until I got the refund, so I missed out on some, while others have repeatedly been in and out of stock (like Tripwire, Cobra Diver, Trakker). It seems unlikely they'd do something like that to make up for their incompetence
