From TNI: http://afigures.com/g/?mode=album&album=2006_GIJoe_Convention%2FDay_2_Hasbro&dispsize=800&start=60 From JBL: http://s6c.joebattlelines.com/convention_06.htm I haven't done the 3 3/4 stuff in years, but there is some there for those who are intersted. The rest is devoted to Sigma Six, a line I've really taken a liking too. Here's my thoughts on the new stuff they've unveiled: Lt. Stone Awesome. Reminds me greatly of Xevoz Shield Breaker, and that's quite cool. Suprised by the Zartan outfit - I was execting a Viper disguise, but I guess this makes more sense. Except... is he supposed to be disguised as Zartan, or Zartan as Stone? His weapon - net launcher? Looks like. Bionic bits are rocking. Cobra Black A sweet, sweet, *sweet* new look for the Commander. Love the new/classic helm - is it removable? Wait - TNI has an unmasked shot. Black hood = thumbs up! Looks like they dropped the gimmick for more weapons - and a lot of them. Awesomeness. Zartan Incredible. Like the perfect version of the character, the version I'd always wanted. I was skeptical about the hood, but they pull it off beautifully. Don't really know what the hell he's holding - his version of the whipstar maybe?- but it doesn't matter. I'd pay $20 for him without any accessories at all. Artic Snake Eyes w/ Timber Great use of a redeco. Recognizable, but very different. The vest looks great, as does the new head. Jet board? They've been cool since BTTF 2. The real selling point is articulated Timber, another sculpt where the Xevoz heritage shines through (in this case, Moonstalker). I would've paid full price for a crap SE just for Timber, but combine the wolf with this new design, and Hasbro will get my money as soon as it hits the shelf. Batwing Kamakura Maybe it's the lighting, but he looks more orange than yellow this time. Not nearly as insta-cool as the other toys, but I figure Jet Duke could use some company. My main regret is that the figure itself has almost no alterations. I guess the money they spent on the others has to be made up somewhere. Still, for a soldier he may be worth the price. Demolition Gear Tunnel Rat Definately not sold on this one. The first TR was terrific. This one has a Flash/Grand Slam color scheme going on, and a bunch of accessories that I can't puzzle out at the moment. I'm probably going to need to see a review, or more details on those accessories before commiting to him. Snake Wrangler Spirit Iron-Knife Another one where there is little done to the basic model. Vest looks great, but what I see in the accessories doesn't quite add up to much. He is a soldier, right? Maybe for that price I'll get him, but not convinced yet. Grandslam Liked the original, will definately get this one. Great head sculpt, terrific helmet, all new body type. I'm not sure we need a missile expert, given that everyone on the team seems to get a missile weapon, but we do need more Joes. Definate buy. Flight pack Storm Shadow I am nearly more sick of the Storm Shadows than SEs and Dukes. It's not like there are a shortage of Cobras waiting to get their own toys. On its own I like the figure- again I'm a sucker for jet packs. I guess I'll just have to create my own Cobra Ninja Force. Ball and Chain Storm Shadow Looks to be the laziest redeco yet, but again I suspect the costs are being put into cooler toys. On the fence. Flight Pack Snake Eyes Like the visor, like the gun, like the back pack, like the armor. Don't much care for the actual figure decos. Leaning towards a get, but I'll see how the final version looks. (EDIT - Thanks to the Scream Man at JBL for pointing this out - This SE has double jointed knees!) Chain Gun Duke Duke my ass. That's Rock and Roll! Like the body redeco and the guns are very cool, but at a Commando price he better come with more. Quad Snake Eyes Grrr... Couldn't do Quad Tunnel Rat? Like I need another SE? Or Duke? I'll get one of the Quads. Right now I'm leaning towards Duke, but I'd like to know what the accessories will be for each. 2.5" My interest in these is mixed. I am getting the Dragonhawk, Firebat and the Mechs. I have little interest in the rest, but the more I see, the harder it is to resist.
