GI Joe stocked at retail...? Good start for your stand up routine.
Kamakura dropped to 29.99 CAD at Amazon.ca. If you missed him now's a good time to get a better price!
I am in for Snow Job and The Trouble Bubble. I wish SE ver.2 and Quinn had been announced but oh, well.
I don't give a crap about Steel Brigade figures but I'll take those JUMP sets and accessories. Gonna be an expensive accessory set for me but at least it comes with two JUMPs.
As far as the rest, looks good and just give me all of the Trouble Bubbles.
well, yeah, it's very stupid. It's effectively a lawn chair and umbrella with a jetpack strapped to it.
then again ... if I'd had access to a jetpack when I was a kid ... my parents would've been wondering where the lawn chairs went to ...
Oh yeah, I was messing with the Crimson Guard and noticed it essentially has a kydex holster. Most the pistols fit pretty loosely or at most, they are tight but can still fall out easily when playing with kids but the Crimson Guard has an audible click when the pistol is holstered and it stays in nicely. Heh heh heh.
This wave has an interesting through line for me… Scrap Iron, the Televiper, and the Steel Brigade figures are all figures of which I had no awareness as a kid. I didn’t learn those even existed until I was an adult collecting the modern line. So sadly I don’t have the nostalgic attachment to them that I do for a lot of other Joes.
I’ll still get them, of course. Nostalgia or no, they’re just good figures like the rest of this line.
The bubble and Tele-Viper I remember well...Scrap Iron to a degree...no memory at all of the Steel Brigade. I'm definitely getting a Tele-Viper and bubble...would like Scrap Iron, but that drone is going to be tough to fit on the shelf and will probably stay in the box unless I do a major shelf rearrangement. I still haven't found a permanent spot for Serpentor and his chariot...
Oh yeah, the Trubble Bubble I remember quite vividly, it’s pretty iconic. Though on the list of “ridiculous glass-domed Cobra death traps,” my favorite will always be the POGO.
I always wondered how many accidental Buzz Boar related deaths must have occurred. It was like a one-wheeled meat grinder with zero forward visibility...haha.
It would be like an episode of 'The Boys'
"Somebody call in the MOP Vipers!"
I'm gonna go with "Maintenance Of Premises" here.
TF Recondo shipped from Pulse this morning!!! Hopefully the one I get will have decent paint on the face
Oh, I remember them very well. Scrap Iron was cool including that rocket Luncher. The Steel Brigade was a mail in back in 1987 or 88. Where you can make up your own file card. Tele-viper and the Flight Pid I know very well. I do agree the flight pod made very little sense with it being an open craft. Though it is still cool though.
How many flight pods are people going to buy? I am guessing it will retail around the $50 range. It would be no surprise if the Cobra Claw is released in 2023 or 24. Jet/jump packs are being released with the Steel Brigade two pack (I think you need six or jetpack to have on Joe's to do the movie intro scene).
Just one flight pod for me, I think. And, I really don’t want the Steel Brigade guys (no memory of them)…but I do want those jet packs…
I'd be in for three normal, then two more if they did a Python Patrol version (with Tele-Viper included).
Zero for me. Because the flight pod had no role in the Marvel comics, even as a kid I thought the flight pod was dumb. However, I share fschuler's desire to own those JUMPs from the Steel Brigade two pack. Likewise, not interested in the figures which were introduced well past my childhood toy buying days.
Two. I need two Televipers, and two bubbles is more than enough for my shelf, as I don't have room to army-build 6" vehicles.
Says the man who made his own fleet of Trouble Bubbles.
I was just re-watching your Youtube video last night as I make another attempt at finding decent enough weather to get out and glue my own kit together. You need to be first in line when those official Bubbles hit the shelves.
Think I'll likely go for 2 Trouble Bubbles so I can have both the white and black Televipers active at once. Good on Hasbro adding that extra head to encourage army building.
