    This is why some of us keep telling people to get a Red Card. I don't get the recurring holds on my bank account with that because the pending charge never makes it to my bank account since only processed charges move from their "middle man account" to your bank. I also get 5% off (pretty much kills most of the tax) and free shipping on all online orders.

    Got the 3D printed Wolverine from Steve’s toys on Facebook. What’s even ironic was I got the decals for from Toyhax.

    Received my Commando Snake Eyes and Timber box from BBTS today... great set. Snake Eyes is great, but I think I'm keeping the ninja version on my display. Timber (the star of the set), however, went right up onto the shelf.

    Hmmm, I need a good Solid Snake figure for Commando Snake Eyes to fight.

    That’s insanely lucky! I never had it, but I’ve been tempted many times. The bad thing is that it’s so massive. I wouldn’t know where to put it.

    I had the Hammerhead. Loved the thing. I do remember getting a bonus. Apparently Hasbro screwed up and I ended up with 2 DECIMATOR figures at the time.

    It’s been a while since I was up to speed on Robot Chicken, but they just posted what i think is a new GI Joe Exotic clip on YouTube.

    Does anyone know of a site with pics of the RELEASED PCS Baroness statue? There's not many good Youtube reviews, and pretty much every pic I find is just early promo pics. I'm mainly curious how the face turned out.

    (though the pose really does look like someone was just playing around with a CG model skeleton rig or something, and tried to make a joke-pose with the torso/hips)

    Got replacement stickers in for the Hammerhead and the Warthog.

    So I have some projects to work on.

    Warthog will be a snap. No stickers applied means easier cleaning.

    Hammerhead should look pretty sweet when she's all done too.

    Also instabought two Hammerhead missile launchers that went up on eBay this morning. Was waiting for just what I needed.

    I have it... The face is not bad but I checked it at the store to make sure there's no paint issues first. The only issue I have is that it tends to lean one side so I ended tightening the heel and stand connection in order to make it stand straight. Also it can't stand without the stand.

    It only took at least 2 weeks. I got yesterday. As I said he sent pics of the whole printing process.

    The hammerhead was the single best Joe toy I had growing up. Six vehicles in one. Land, sea and air support. Cool, unique figure. Great effort by Hasbro.
