  1. Aly, Congrats buddy. When I saw my MC itinerary, I had to do a freaking doubletake. LOL. I will definitely make it to Friday's session but I am leaving too early on Sunday to make it to that one. I hope that you will have an alternative for those that can't make it. Lord knows I would buy a video how-to in a snap. Look forward to seeing you there.
  2. Aly, If all goes well at the con will you get to show how to make envelope molds? Thanks.
  3. Have always loved Sgt. Rock and I didn't know about this so thanks for the head-up. It sounds awesome.
  4. Skarapz - good one with that serpent stab remark. Can't stop laughing. LOL. I never had a problem with Duke's character. Am a fan of both the comic and cartoon so I was genuinely interested in both the visual and character aspects of all the Joes and Cobras. Duke makes for a great field leader on the team. As for Duke's place in the cartoon leadership ranks, I think Flint's reply to Beach Head solves it in a nutshell: BEACH HEAD Huh-huh. Very funny. Now, if I was in charge.... FLINT But you aren't, Beach Head. First comes Hawk, then Duke, then me, and finally...you.

    BigLot haul

    Folks, For anyone looking for the Combat Helicopter, TRU also has them. I saw them last night. It is distributed under their generic Elite Operations brand but it is the PTE Combat Helo. MY TRU has two versions - one in flat black and the other in dark green.
  6. Okay I thought of a few more from some of my favorite shows. First from Sleeper Cell, FBI agent Darwyn Al-Sayeed (Michael Ealy) for the Joes. As for Cobra, they can pick up his nemesis, Faris Al-Farik (Oded Fehr). From the Military Channel Future Weapons show, I would add Mackowitz (the host). He was a real life SEAL and would fit in perfectly with the rest of the Joes.
  7. Skarapz, I'm game to take a stab at this and have some fun. I am taking the Hollywood approach on this one because of certain actors and characters I have seen. For starters, I got to throw in Bruce Lee and Jet Li to flesh out alternate martial art disciplines. As for the SEAL contingent, I would have Steven Seagal (Under Siege), Michael Biehn (The Rock) and Demi Moore (GI Jane). To round out the rest of the crew, Matt Damon (Jason Bourne), Stallone, Chuck Norris, Linda Hamilton (Terminator 2) and Bruce Willis (Die Hard), Geena Davis (Long Kiss Goodnight). Sanaa Lathan (AVP). I would throw in Arnold as a Oktober Guard member of the Joe team from his old Red heat days.
  8. I look forward to seeing you guys down there. I already know Gil through the Tri-State Viper meetings. All told, there will be 7 of us from the Tri-State Viper forums headed down there. I really look forward to it and meeting you guys.
  9. Alk, I am with you buddy. The moment my eye caught the silhouette and markings, I was just hoping that they release her. I have been a Cobra-La fan since their introduction. I love the Royal Guard mold. I was disappointed in their execution of Golobulus. I don't understand why the figure was made to resemble a garden spike. LOL. They should have released that organic module that he hovered around in. Maybe like the separate Serpentor release with air chariot. Here is hoping that they release some of the customs down the line.
  10. I wouldn't say ticked off but I did get a good laugh. Both Targets near me have loads of the singles and 5-packs in stock. They wouldn't sell any because of their scheduled August rollout. When I went into Target and the associate tells me "sorry, you won't be able to get these before August." I then walked two stores down in the same mall to KayBee and pick-up a bunch from their racks. Hehe.
  11. Michael, I had a question about the convention exclusives. I know you mentioned that they would be limited to 1 per badge. I was planning to purchase 2 more sets of the exclusives for family that couldn't make it. Would I have to buy 2 additional convention packages in order to be granted additional badges for each? Thanks.
  12. Im, A realistic interpretation would be nice. However, I believe that you may run into a conflict with the actual characters since the uniforms and costumes in the comics and cartoons add to the iconic feel of the characters themselves. Perhaps striking a reasonable balance by "killing" (writing off) minor Joe characters in an effort to show more violence and realistic threats would be acceptable. As for the origin and financing of Cobra, I like the direction of your potential explanation. I find your endeavour a refreshing take versus the traditional complaining about the potential movie script route. I am starting to write my own spinoff of GI Joe and have about 30 pages written so far. It is a challenge and I find myself writing events and dialogue out of order. There are certain scenes that I have skipped and decided to hash out later later because I need to finish a line of thought.
  13. CT, Happy Birthday buddy! I hope that you scored some nice goodies!

    Restored Toys

    Interesting question. I wouldn't buy a restored item but I would buy beat-up parts and restore them for display purposes (not for sale). Did you buy the sun-damaged Defiant with the intention of restoring and selling it or did you just change your mind and are leaning toward selling it? Who knows though. A secondary market for restored items does have a certainn appeal. If someone can't get an original mint, then maybe they would be willing to purchase a nice refurb?
  15. Received my package in the mail today. Thank you very, very much for picking them up and shipping them!
