Can't wait to see pics of Zartan & Beachhead, but I'd rather see anyone but Serpentor. Hoping to see Firefly & Lady J too.
That Snake Eyes with Timber looks awesome!
Man those are looking great!
Yes they sure do. I think a lot of the old-school guys that left G.I. Joe collecting just got sucked back in.
Well at least Zartan will be release individually. I just wish Destro was as well. Those would be the only two I'm really interested in.
I guess I could always get the 5-pack and sell off the rest... seems a bit of a waste though.
That'd be me.
Gung Ho, Storm Shadow (cobra), and Snake eyes for me...they look awesome. The only other Joe character I would want to see is Shipwreck. Love that guy, he was my 2nd favorite character. On the Cobra side I think it would be cool if they added the B.A.T., they could do so much wih that.
What is up with that belt around the middle of Cobra Commander's torso? It looks very awkward...makes him look stumpy. Hopefully the change the mold. (I know..I'm dreaming.)
Snake Eyes WITH Timber? Whoot!
Yeah, when I was looking through those I seriously started considering buying them.
They added picture of them at BBTS. Don't know if they are a new pre-order or not. They even have pics of the singles on the beautiful retro style cards....
Damn Hasbro sucked me back in to G.I.Joe...Transformers have already sucked me dry.
Too bad these guys aren't 1982 prices...
Aah..retro cardback goodness!
On the V2 SS, didn't his original cardback have like a digital pattern behind the artwork and not an explosion? I guess they're going for uniformity.
Yeah, I'm back collecting Joe as well
Edit: Yeah, here's the original cardback
So how many have already pre-ordered from BBTS?
Pics of the Box Set are up on Master Collector's site for club members.
If BBTS is charging $7 for a single I'm guessing they will only be $5 retail. Anyone know what it actually will be?
Well then you should have posted the pics here for us non-members! Sheesh
That Snake Eyes is friggin' PERFECT! We finally get an updated Version 2! And not that crappy visored Valor vs Venom one that couldn't even hold any weapons of his (or anyone else's for that matter).
Add in the great packaging and you've got yourself a great figure!
I can't wait for these guys to hit stores!
Oh yeah, that packaging art is new by the way. It is very similar to the original but if you compare Snake Eyes, you'll find that they are in slightly different poses (the pointing hand) and have different gear on (watch on orignial / no watch on new figure) and diffent footwear (original - no footwear but has anklets / boots but no anklets on new figure). I think SE looks better with the boots.
Still, the new figures look great!
Ah yes, Dan will be getting doubles of some of these to display MOC, beautiful.
Now someone tell me why TF Classics got stuck with such shitty packaging compared to these reproductions?
Beats me. Classics' lackluster packaging went a looong way toward me deciding not to buy doubles to leave sealed. They didn't have to be exact copies; just non-trapezoidal and some grid goodness. SW got straight-up vintage repro packaging; GIJoe is damn close. Classics was...kiiinda like Cybertron...except not...and just kinda bleh. Conversely, I buy two of all the 'vintage' SW without blinking, and will do the same with these.
Wow, no repaints of Duke!
I really cannot wait for these to come out.
The box sets look awesome as well.
Now I finally have an excuse to buy the R.O.C.C. and R.H.I.N.O.
