    If the SDCC Transforming exclusives suck, I will probably walk home with this bemoth of bodaciousness. Box cover art alone is tempting :)

    if thats the sole SDCC exclusive for GiJoe and Transformers its gonna sell hella fast, if its just for GiJoe it will still sell way fast. either way its not gonna last long on HTS if any are left after SDCC. If I can get one I will.

    Looks sooo nice.

    I'd love to stick a custom Donny Finkleberg in the cockpit.

    I hope this will not be like Sgt Slaughter last year. This year The Hasbro both will be one of the 1st places I visit.

    I've been to SDCC for the past 11 years, and I predict this will sellout before Sunday for 4 big reasons

    1- it's a very unique and not really a straight reissue (vs. Blaster/Soundwave/Cobra Commander/Destro of past years)

    2- it has a comic book on the cover, shmuck bait to casual Joe/TF fans who like comics

    3- it combines 2 fandoms in one - rare and wise cross-marketing. They got us nerds by the gonads.

    4- It's Huge - and Comicon is kind of like a swarm of hunters who like to bag the big prize elephant.

    Happy hunting on the ebay :(

    That is a rather fine Action Force/Transformers crossover if ever I saw one.

    It's a cool deco idea. But I'm just glad that Joe Fans are finally getting a new skystriker for only $29.99 at retail anyway.

    I'd be thrilled to have a Starscream Skystriker to Display with my Cobra Rattler
    Though Hasbro Toy Shop the monday after the convention will probably be my only venue.

    Not going to whine if I can't get one. But Hasbro seems to have offered all of their comic con exclusives in some quantity after the show. Now tell us what the Transformers Exclusive is already! I'm guessing Mighty Mugs Ironhide and the Nemesis Prime redeco of the Reveal the Shield Optimus Prime Deluxe.

    From the Feedback at Hisstank.com though. Its only really the Transformers fans who want to get this. Joe fans tend to be way more into realism, dry brushing and para millitary twists on nostalgic themes.
