  1. For me it depends on the design/construction. Has it been modified from the original and if so is an improvement or not. When this question came up the first character that popped into my mind was G1 Optimus Prime. When released back in the 80's toy safety was not as strict so you had realistic style smoke stacks that rise above the shoulder. With the reissues they have been truncated. And then there is the issue with Megatron's original mold. Because it was/is so realistic looking at a quick glance now any gun Megatron has to have a brightly colored tip.
  2. Thundercracker is actually the last of the 6 main seekers to get released. I haven't heard anything about a re-release but Skywarp and Ramjet were released previously. Skywarp was in a Target exclusive 2 pack w/ Ultra Magnus in 2007: (http://www.google.com/products/catalog?q=skywarp+ultra+magnus&oe=utf-8&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=shop&cid=6498541811611370227&sa=X&ei=9-aHTo7jOunSiALg5rHUDA&ved=0CDIQ8wIwAQ) / (http://www.transformersclassics.com/ultra-magnus-vs-skywarp-2-pack.html). Ramjet was also released in 2007 (http://www.google.com/products/catalog?q=ramjet+classics&hl=en&safe=off&client=firefox-a&hs=FJZ&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&prmd=imvns&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.,cf.osb&biw=1144&bih=723&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=shop&cid=3779945389118972684&sa=X&ei=GeiHTuifL-nUiAKzkK2nDA&ved=0CFwQ8wIwAA( / (http://www.transformersclassics.com/ramjet.html).
  3. $499 for an incomplete San Diego Comic Con Exclusive Sgt Slaughter figure - http://cgi.ebay.com/SD-Comic-Con-Exclusive-GI-JOE-SGT-SLAUGHTER-ERROR-/330456296761?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4cf0baed39
  4. The more Joe cons the better but there is actually an annual one in Northern California (Sacramento to be exact). Did a little Googling and found in the Socal Dreaknoks forum (http://www.socaldreadnoks.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=307&highlight=&sid=6cefc9b0a3b56bfb69ca93d0ad6f95bc)that it has been delayed due to venue issues until April
  5. You are probably thinking of Alyosha - http://www.brokenarrowtoys.com/ . Another group that I have come across is Slayer Design Studios - http://slayerdesignstudio.3dcartstores.com/ . And if its weapons - http://www.marauderinc.com/servlet/StoreFront
  6. Unfortunately this figure was canceled. There were a limited number with Hasbro Markups that made it on to e-bay. Even with Hasbro's recent change to stick with the current POC line that figure in that form will never be released because the head was modeled after Rachel Nichols. I am hoping though that with Hasbro's about face we will see the figure with a new head (even if the body is just a repainted version of the Resolute Scarlett body). The accessories and the paint scheme made for what looked to be (IMO)one of the best Scarletts produced to date.
  7. Unfortunately these are as of now canceled Target Exclusives. I am hoping that these are rescheduled in the future but I will not hold my breath. A couple of the MISB Air Assault Glider with Capt. Ace made it on to EBay . . . I don't know if any of the others were far enough along in production to have samples hit EBay or not. The artwork is really great on these pieces as well and I think that more than anything is why I will miss these.
  8. Hey Clam can you please PM me with where you found them. I hit 5 Ross Stores in the Sac area today and came up with squat. Or if you got extras maybe we can talk trade. Thanks.
  9. Would it be okay if I said I did it for the Larry Hama comic and since the Ice Dagger is a pre-ROC mold the only blasphemy was the Gunship?. . . not that that is the case . . . just asking I didn't have any trouble with the Ice Dagger I ordered from Walmart.com.I used the site to store thing. It is hit and miss . . . as I said my Gunship with the comic was shipped inside another box whereas the Ice Dagger received no additional protection . . . it may have something to do with where it is shipped from . . . warehouse location vs. warehouse location . . . warehouse vs store . . . for whatever reason Site To Store did not appear as an option for me (maybe it was because of the comic or I just missed selecting something) . . . your Ice Dagger may have already been at the store . . . shipped in a Hasbro box and just reallocated from store inventory so that may explain why yours was fine . . . bottom line is I just want people who want to preserve the packaging to be aware of the fact that Walmart may not ship our orders inside another box.
  10. Would it be okay if I said I did it for the Larry Hama comic and since the Ice Dagger is a pre-ROC mold the only blasphemy was the Gunship?. . . not that that is the case . . . just asking
  11. For those wanting to take advantage of the Wal-Mart Joe offers online be warned that your item may ship with no protection. I just placed an order for the Bravo Vehicle pair of the Cobra Gunship and Ice Dagger so I could get the exclusive comic. The Gunship and comic came in a box while the Ice Dagger arrived separately without any packaging to protect it. My Ice Dagger box had writing on it, missing flaps exposing the lower part of the box where the accessories are packaged and the packing slip for the order taped to it. So if you care about having your boxes in good shape, be warned that Wal-Mart may ship them without additional packaging.
  12. Rare my @$$ http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...ME:B:SS:US:1123 . . . Best creative use of keywords to try and fool people . . . and the award goes to this Jerk
  13. What GI Joe Means to Me . . . GI Joe represents my happiest childhood memories (except for the time my buddy got the last Alpine because he could pedal faster than I could but I digress) . . . trips to the ma and pop toy store where I got to be the first to pick through the new shipments fresh out of the case (If only I had been wise enough to get the full cases then not to mention the listen and fun Tripwire) . . . hours upon hours of creating epic battles in my bedroom and then "resetting" for the next time . . . getting to live in a world where the good guys won and evil was vanquished . . . simply put . . . when I was a kid the world of GI Joe was where I would go to be happy
  14. Title pretty much says it all . . . I ended up getting an extra Target exclusive Conquest . . . If you are having trouble finding it and have an extra Target exclusive Rattler (Still MISB) I would be interested in meeting up somewhere in the Sacto area and doing a straight trade. If no one expresses an interest within a couple of weeks my extra will be getting returned. PM me if interested.
  15. I have yet to see Torpedo and Battle Armor Cobra Commander @grumpy@
  16. Since the head does not seem to be the same one used for the comic book 2 pack Breaker (although since I have yet to come across a Destro/Breaker comic pack yet I can not say for certain :angry: ) the thought that had crossed my mind is that it might be Sparks
  17. Thanks for the suggestions. Checking out Diamond directly hadn't even crossed my mind.
  18. I took a look at some of your other customs (after checking out the other Airtight pics) and this is just another in a line of excellent customs. I really envy your skills.
  19. I am hoping that someone knows where I can get the Storm Shadow poster by Michael Beck http://yojoe.com/archive/posters/stormspost.shtml I have been trying to find one for awhile now on E-Bay but no luck. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  20. I hope I am not repeating someone else's post but I didn't see it listed here: Storm Shadow Variant (as defined by seller) I find it interesting that this seller places extra value on figure that is in his words "INCOMPLETE"
  21. If the discussion for pinned topics is still open then I have three suggestions: 1) GI Joe Deals - to cover stuff like Store Clearance Items like the Dragonhawk sale at Target awhile back and coupon deals for online stores i.e. the coupon codes for HTS 2) Latest news on the next wave (or title it by the next big wave then unpin it when it hits the shelves); so in this case something like 25th Anniversary Wave 1 & 2 news and maybe a DTC Wave 4 news thread 3) Online Store experiences/ratings so that all experiences good and bad can be tracked in one thread and maybe include a poll with it
  22. Sorry . . . I am the next to last person on the planet without a cellphone. Like Giltyone says though its just repackaged product. I didn't get a chance to look at the back, but the front has no artwork and the top of the Dragonhawk is visible and then the Boat and figures are packaged on top. If I come across any pictures I'll be sure to post them though.
  23. Just another heads up . .. don't know if the temporary price drops at Targets are store specific or not but for those in the Sacramento, Ca area the Target on Madison has the Dragonhawk for $29.99 . . not a huge price drop but every little bit helps . . . hopefully this deal can be found at other Targets as well
  24. @loll@ @loll@ Snow Job is one of the worst figures to try to keep from yellowing yellow snow job! now thats funny! anyone know were a guy might be able to watch this episode of robot chicken...online?? TM The episode can be found online (don't know for how long) at the Adult Swim Fix site: http://www.adultswim.com/adultswimfix/index.jsp
