    Cool crossover.

    And it has a colour scheme like the GI Joe Hovercraft which I think was the point anyway and thus the box.

    99% chance Tubes will have the Rager head..

    As for those wondering about the G I Joe connection, it started with this...

    And them reprolabels went and did this spectacular set:

    Because a badly photoshopped placeholder image of a CGI model said so? I'm waiting to see if there is one

    There isn't a new head. The Rager head on Tubes is it. Apparently BBTS just wanted the straight repaint.

    Because it's an exclusive and every other exclusive is unaltered... But anything is possible, hence the 1%...

    Okay man, don't hold your breath. I asked the designer himself and he said no. Hell, ask him yourself on his facebook page.

    SOrry Torque but when Sid talks about MW it's best you listen. If he says no new head it will be no new head.

    The real question is, will this be the only PIPES we see in the MW line or do they have a unique mould for him coming out down the line?

    damn. it sounded like someone sure of speculation, not like an insider. Might be cancelling my pre-order then... damn.


    back on topic, Manatee looks cool, but in not a Joe fan, so I'll pass.

    Sorry man, it's not like IGear kept it a secret, they revealed photos on day one. For all peoples complaints about them, they had full disclosure on these guys.

    Neat box art, but I'm not so huge a Joe fan despite having owned a few of the toys as a kid. As for Pipes, no biggie; I really dig the Rager mold and perhaps Dr. Wu or someone else will make a new head. Can always hope. XD

    Chances are they have a "proper" Pipes in the pipeline (heh). This one will likely tide people over in the meantime. For me, I'll get both and treat them as different characters.
