    We have Destro coming soon, who is the next character in the line? If Mezco is supposedly going to go deep into the Joe line, there needs to be faster releases.

    I agree. I have Destro on preorder but I would really like to know who else they have plans for,especially on the Cobra side.

    Well the Destro reveal was at the end of February, so I'd expect the next reveal within the next few weeks if they try to stick to quarterly releases.

    If the MDS Alien is a preview of what may come with the One:12 Alien figure, that should be a pretty awesome release. This and the Predator MDS figures are actually tempting haha.

    I think Mezco's GI Joe line won't be all encompassing, I'm still collecting all the Classified stuff and will replace with Mezcos when they come around. I have to imagine Snake Eyes, Storm Shadow, and Cobra Commander are on the short list. I wonder if they'd do a Cobra Trooper, that would be the only real painful once since people would army build the hell out of those figures, for GI Joe and whatever other customs they'd be good for.

    Army builders like Cobra Trooper should cost $50-$60, with no fancy gimmicks, light up accessories, the the rifle, Crimson Guard, Vipers, should just have backpack and rifle. Bats, Eels, Snow Serpents, should cost around the $70 range, as those troops have more accessories, or offer a larger run, for example, Mezco could state in order to offer a lower price of (example) $40 each, this number of pre-orders has to be reached.

    It’s the anniversary of the ‘89 Batman release today...

    Sure would be nice to have that figure, Mezco.

    I don’t think that’ll ever happen honestly. When they did the Pink Skulls three pack for $225 a figure, that told me Mezco will never sell a figure for anywhere near $50. That had no license and still $75 each. The Warriors 4-pack was $275, just under $70 a figure and half them didn’t have shirts so less soft goods.

    If they did multipacks or Cobra Troopers I think at best they’d be $75 each but I’m not convinced they’d do that anyway.

    The Slugfest Emporium just dropped “Slugfest’s Crypto-Cog”, a decoder ring for future discounts. 40 plus shipping.

    I've had Thanos for about 30 minutes now. He's pretty cool. Articulation is pretty meh obviously but he displays so well. He's also REALLY heavy, was not expecting that. Only thing he's missing is a snapping hand. Overall I'm very pleased with it.

    The accessories usually make the figure so I want to see what he comes with first.

    Looks like the Blade body sculpt used for Roadblock here. I'm waiting for Cobra Commander/Serpentor/Baroness.

    Yeah, I imagine the accessories are going to be great for this. At least a nice 50 Cal. But I don't care about the character enough to get a premium version of it so I'm glad they are so far, not forcing my hand to spend more money on GI Joe. Although in this case, depending on how good and how many accessories there are, it would almost make sense to go with Mezco instead of Classified + Little Armory supplemental weapons to make up for the crappy Hasbro ones.

    A mezco serpentor would probably be the only one that would push me to mezco for joe. Other than him I think classified is good enough even though they are so dang frustrating to find.

    I have the regular and Cobra Island Roadblock, I'd definitely sell those if this one is pretty nice to take the edge off the premium price. I didn't anticipate this would be one of the earlier Mezco Joe figures.

    It certainly would make sense to. Since I don't care about Roadblock, I didn't get the first release (plus it looked terrible to me) but I did get CI just because it was a consolation to get anything CI at the time and I preordered the new classic looking one. Instead of the two Classified versions plus the mentioned Little Armory accessories needed, it would definitely make more sense to get the Mezco instead but I'm not going to sell what I already have so I'm good.

    Keeping an eye on what Mezco brings though.

    CI Roadblock should've just been Heavy Duty from the start. They've circled back with the Infantry Roadblock that will fill that spot nicely. The accessories should make the Mezco but I don't see myself needing him. For Mezco I'm just waiting to see what they give us for a Cobra lineup.

    I barely remember Heavy Duty...I can call my CI one that though.
