    LOL on the tax joke! I already PO-ed 2 cases. I also managed to make an arrangement of sorts with a fellow collector in my country to get a Bat and a Alley Viper…so I’m 3 short of having of dream of 10 Bats.

    On the plus side, this Gung Ho’s body can be used for customs like Marvel’s Reavers (spelling?) who were X-men foes.

    I change colors in different temps too. But the temps are usually a bit more extreme

    Can't fund a Ho train without Ho taxes, in my opinion.

    Would be indecent for those BATs to not have pants.

    I really wish Hasbro would get with the times and realize that we are nostalgic for a blue Zartan. We aren't so much nostalgic for having to do work to get some gimmick to half-way function so that he looks various shades of blue and gray for about 3 minutes.

    In fairness, though, at least he isn't vomit green like the 25th anniversary version.

    Patrick Stewart in his most challenging sci-fi role yet. Half man, half snake, all passion.

    Patrick Stewart is Golobulus in Spores of the Himalayas.

    So, the O-ring figures are replacing the Retro line. That's sad, really. The Retro line was really hitting its stride when they decided to end it.

    Don't know if it's cancelled but it's definitely on hold. And the o ring stuff is pulse exclusive the retro was Walmart. I'd say there will be more next year.

    I think there’s still opportunity. Maybe the retro line can branch out beyond Walmart after next year for all new designs. Some of the tooling(Fang pilot, Cobra Trooper/Officer, Stalker and Grunt) was all new. They can definitely still get more out of those bucks, like an accurate V1 Snake Eyes and some of the other OG13 Joes.

    In the video above, they say that their focus will be on O-rings and at Pulse Con they called O-rings the retro line.

    Yes but look at star wars. You have the black series, the vintage collection, and the retro line. Plus I don't think the o ring is going to appeal to as many who preferred the modern take. The fact storm shadow and snake eyes is still available and costs way more than the retail retro stuff now think a lot are gonna walk.
