    Man. This fandom.

    Looks great FunPub! Keep it up. I've been waiting 28 years for a Marissa Faireborn figure, and this more than meets the expectation.

    I'm sure it will. A stand is a good thing to have for these figures and I don't think there's an option for one that doesn't have something molded into it like that. Molding a logo-less stand would be a waste of remolding budget.

    There's a GI Joe logo stand, a Cobra logo stand, and also some GI Joe Rise of Cobra Movie stands that might be slightly better since I think the logos are just on the bottom of the stand.

    Edit:

    Well maybe this stand would be better:

    Retaliaion "Jinx"

    Though I don't know what's molded on the bottom of the stand...

    Nothing at all.

    If this ends up being a TFCC-only exclusive (though it really should be shared between TF and Joe)... if any club members feel like helping I could use this figure. :thumb

    I think I want Marissa, but have no interest in the bike.


    Secondary prices mean I'll never get one.


    *sigh*

    The colors on Afterburner are still not all that different from the original version of the toy. Marissa is fine by herself, tho.

    A co-exclusive doesn't sound like such a bad idea. A way to do the stuff that crosses over the GI Joe and Transformers stuff in a way that fans actually have some shot at getting instead of the insane to find Comic Con exclusives.

    Normally I'm a pass on the Transformers exclusives but this figure is so damn tempting I may just have to give in a join. A nod to the cartoon series, a nod to GI Joe and Transformers sharing the same fictional universe, it's no Old Snake, but hey it's hard to resist something that fit well into both my toy collections.

    It's a really good deco, both bike and figure look snazzy here.

    Still not buying it, but this is a cool fig for those looking for toys that don't Transform.

    Those look flipping in-sane and perfect for drone troops.

    Looks like I'll have to try and get a few. Thanks!

    I really like this exclusive! I like it better than Nova Prime. It'll look great next to my SDCC Starscream.

    I like it! I'm not sure why it's controversial to have an exclusive that is clearly a 50/50 crossover between the two franchises. Or why it's necessary to pigeonhole it as only belonging to one or the other, when it's clearly both. Given her backstory, Marissa is pretty much the ideal character around which to do such a crossover. And with the Joe line sputtering, this is a nice way to add another character to the Joe roster as well.

    Plus, there have been crossovers between the two forever... Old Snake, the "vs." comics, Marissa, Energon Snowcat, the SDCC sets, etc.

    Now, to turn the tables, how about a JOE Club exclusive Classics Powerglide painted as a Rattler? Pretty please? :)

    I hope your right and it is a co-exclusive
