    Same here about all that you said. I am thinking about dropping my Action Force one for a multitude of reasons.

    Grunt looks good from what I can tell, if he is indeed like Retro Stalker he will be a great and faithful rendition of the 82 figure. I really want to see all of the original 13 done in this line.

    Slaughter is flooding eBay at over $100 a pop.

    Somehow I'm not surprised by that.

    Of course he is. Man I never can snag the mattel stuff for cost. Missed the slim jim randy savage, the Mr t, and now slaughter. Secondary market is always crazy for them so I haven't picked up the previous ones either but with classified being my favorite line right now I really wanted this slaughter.

    Hopefully that means he’ll drop down a bit at some point after the initial flood.

    Wonder if they have any plans to do a non-ultimate retail release. I’m thinking probably not, but it would be nice.

    So are the retro joe grunt and officer going up tomorrow or? Still debating the hiss 3. I already got a blue one with 813 from the 25th line. I dont need another. Maybe just for the driver if hes different. Really wanted snowcat or vamp 2.

    Need a Snake Eyes V1 redo using the Stalker body as it matches the card art more than the POC Snake Eyes(that was missing the V1 alternate head sculpt) from the 1st retro wave

    Mr. T has yet to see a single release, although he was in a 2 pack with Rowdy Roddy Piper. Macho Man also had had a few releases including an Ultimate since his SDCC figure. No doubt Sarge will show up again but in what form or incarnation will not be the same as this release.

    Wasn't there a regular release of Sarge coming out? I swear that they said the only difference between the retail and exclusive one was the packaging. Am I crazy?

    You’re definitely crazy…but for other reasons, lol. I recall them saying the same thing, unless that was Vala talking about one of his products at the recent Joecon.

    I've seen no indication that he will appear in the Elite Legends line. I think our best bet would be an exclusive at Ringside Collectibles as a 2 pack.

    Just looked it up. It's actually that there is a unique cardback you can get randomly if you buy Slaughter. So no retail release (as of yet). Got confused by the two styles of packaging.

    Yeah, it's basically a chase variant of an already exclusive figure. Imagine what that's going to fetch on the aftermarket. Oi. That shit is scalper bait 101.

    If I were a betting man I would suspect a Sgt Slaughter 2 pack with Iron Sheik, complete with headdress when he turned heel back in 1991.

    Forgot the Slaughter drop was today. I was never big on the character, but would have gotten one over the Valaverse to slot with the Classified figs. On the plus side, going to check on him reminded me about the Jurassic Park Motherfuckin' Raptor vs Sam Jackson pack, which I'd be way more annoyed if I missed.

    The Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow kits are close to $50 I think

    Saw this on Facebook. This thing is sick. It has moving treads too.
