    If you guys are digging the A-10 you must check these out:

    The Joe boards have been buzzing about these for weeks. They are supposedly available at Big Lots but I haven't been to one yet.

    Those Diorama/Playsets look awesome! I don't know of any Big Lots around me, however. :( 

    Glad I don't have to ask my wifes' permission. Sheesh. So long as I pay my bills - which I have my share direct deposited into the joint acct - my extra money is mine to burn.

    And for the record, anytime we need extra money, I sell off some toys. She knows that I'm responsible and will take care of her, so she never complains about my buying habbits... maybe I'm just lucky that way. I just make sure to get her flowers and such from time to time, to let her know that I'm thinking of her as well as buying toys for myself, and take her out at least once a month if not more.

    I feel bad for you guys that need to ask.

    I picked up the bbi/elite force apache longbow a couple of years ago at tru for...$15! I'm pretty sure it was on clearance from like $50, and I just couldn't pass it up. the things awesome, and has got to be like 2 feet long once you put the tail on. the two figures it comes with make you want to cry. there's SO much more detail on them than on regular gi joe guys. that's one definitely to pick up, even if you have to pay more for it.

    Would 25th Snake Eyes fit on on a Maisto 1/18th Motorcycle? I want to put him on a sport bike, similiar to the Sigma Six one.

    I saw that one at my local Big Lots. This is probably one of the biggest toy planes I have ever seen!

    I forgot that I had one of these until you brought it up.

    Sorry the pics are blurry, the camera battery is low.

    Thats the Power Team Elite F/A-18 sold exclusively at TRU. Its been sold there in aggressor camo, black/red, and green/greenish grey. Its now $22.99, used to be $19.99.
    At TRU it is packaged under the "Elite Operations" banner.

    The F/A-18 from Elite Force is the one everyone is getting confused about. Its made by BBI and the msrp is $79.99, it was only seen at a few TRU's, and is primarily sold online. It is also accurately scaled to 1/18, and a behemoth compared to the Power Team one. It is nearly 3ft long, wings fold, tailhook moves, ejection seat is removable, and only seats 1 pilot.

    The new A-10 many members recommend, including myself is the Power Team Elite version, sold at Big Lots and at TRU. At TRu it is also under the Elite Operations banner, and is $29.99. It is grey and more to scale than the BBI combat command version sold at target 2 years ago.

    Aaah...ok. I was confuzzled as to which F-18 Razer was referring to. I pretty well ignore the Power Team Elite ones so didn't even think about them. I was talkin' 'bout the one you're talking about:

    [​IMG]

    ..which I wish would get a second run, even if it's still full price. And God help us all if they ever make an F-15.

    On a related note, I believe it's Maisto that makes 1:18 diecast Harleys...perfect for Dreadnoks. I must have 10 of the things...alas they are buried in the bowels of the closet otherwise I'd snap some pics.

    I saw the A10A at TRU. That thing would be awesome if you hit it with some Krylon blue and Cobra decals.

    I saw the Abrams Tank and the helicopter (not Apache but more like a Blackhawk) at my local Walmart and they were huge!
