    I got all of wave 7 today at Walmart. YAY ME!!! Plus I picked up a few GIJOE stuff from my buddy Cataclizm1. Got the TRU Cobra Crimson 3-pack, TRU Nightwatch pack, Destro/Breaker 2-pack, Sigma 6 Lt. Stone and the Taget GIJOE Vehicles (all 3). I can honestly say, damn thats a lot of Joes. So I'm a happy trooper for today :D

    So what would be a fair asking price for a doc?

    The Viper is awesome. But my favorite figure from this wave is Snakes Eyes. Since I'm a card art freak I just love the art work on this wave. Pretty sweet.

    But I noticed something weird on my Duke figure. It has the flag from India on it. Is this a variant Funskool figure?

    OK, I admit I was holding back from the community. There is a couple that runs a tiny webstore from their home for military action figures. I found them while searching online for diecast tanks and realised they were in the same neighborhood as me. They also carry 25th Joes for the lowest prices around. They are a bit slow getting the newest waves, but average a week or two behind BBTS. Their site is confusing at first, but cheap prices mean a cheap site. 25th Joes are listed under GI Joe 2007 and 2008, preorders are listed under Products Available for Preorder. Enjoy and please give me feedback on your impressions.

    Very interesting. Must be a nod to Funskool. Wonder if there are any other country flags out there?

    Thanks for the news Roboto! I know you are an honest dude, so we know this isn't one of those lame photoshops some dipshit assholes with no life pull.

    I completed my Crimson Guard crew by buying the red Cobra Commander set today. I think four is enough for me. Glad I didn't bother with the blue hooded one.

    Because of all the transformers stuff coming, I'm only going to buy enough figures to fill each vehicle from now on(including pegs). I kind of wonder when they'll run out of figures I would really care about anyway. I'm not terribly interested in Tiger Force, Python Patrol, things of that nature.

    I still really want Alpine, Leatherneck, Wet-Suit, and Grid-Iron though.

    OK, I found the TRU exclusive Snake Eyes/Red Ninja set and Crimson Cobra Commader set this weekend and the "25th bug" got me... again.

    This time I don't think I'm going to go "Completeist" (spelling?) though, just the figures I like. Liege Prime you were 1/2 right about selling my collection, I don't regret it, but there are a few figures I wish I still had. Good thing is though that it won't be too hard to get the ones I want again... now bring on the Destros!

    I gave him the benefit of the doubt, considering the link was only to the one post, and not the entire thread...But posting a picture like that isn't going to get much more than reactions, anyways. I'd have posted the ones for myself, then typed out a paragraph on how I'm trying to help other people out, then post the pic of the stuff for the masses. [​IMG]
