I expected either Dice or Bombstrike or Mayday or a new Sgt Slaughter......not, well, who came in
Hey remember when they had new retail GI Joe figures?....Yeah, those were good times.
Recently decided to bust out my entire Cobra army and have them all mount up. For now I managed to get as many as the "Regular" Cobra troops ready to roll, with the only really specialized group being the M.A.D. Urban Combat team. I still need to mod some of these vehicles a bit and even grab a few more for the rest of my troops who still have no transportation.
My Night Watch saboteur team needs one more vehicle for their remaining three members, I still want to grab another 30th brown H.I.S.S. tank to create a nice trio of large H.I.S.S. tanks and I *really* want to mode the Ret H.I.S.S. to have a turret the gunner can sit in completely and possibly even add a hatch to it (a tank with an open turret always bugged me).
As for my Cobra troops not pictured, my Crimson Guard, Desert Ops, Jungle Ops, Science Division (Zombies, B.A.T.s and techy Vipers), Personal Security Forces and M.A.R.S. troopers all need rides of their own. I have some ideas of what I want to get, but I can't think of anything good for my Crimson Guard or my Science Division.
Anybody here interested in a GI Joe Extreme Skystalker complete no stickers applied with box, insert, instructions, etc?
bought a collection today. some funschool and action force stuff.
Eaglehawk is ringing up for $26.99 at TRU until the end of the year. If the tags still show $42.99, double check by scanning the box at the price scanner.
Meanwhile retaliation 3 packs are showing up at Ross
Anybody have that Eaglehawk? Just wondering how it is because I was tempted to get one at TRU today.
i think it was worth the original $43, but at $27 it's a steal.
I've got it. It's fantastic. Worth $40, every Joe fan should have one for $27.
Pass on the Eaglehawk. Not interested in inaccurately scaled GI Joe vehicles like the Skystriker.
My favorite character of all. Got my Baroness EX in the mail today.
Damn,that is a nice looking Baronness.I'm glad my little girl wasn't sitting beside me,she would want that.
Baroness looks awesome. Now where's Scarlett, Lady Jaye, and Cover Girl?
This Kickstarter may be of interest.
Holy hell,those look amazing.Love the idea of adding pouches and the like.
The Marauder Task Force Kickstarter funded in under 24 hours.
Get in while the gettin's good.
The Baroness is great. I have her too and I can't wait to get Destro. I'm apparently one of those few who absolutely love both heads on the Destro and the more modernized outfit.
That being said I wish Sideshow didn't just copy and paste the bios. She's got an 18" barrel IMI Tavor...which isn't any of the rifles that she's actually proficient in. Considering it's a bullpup, which is drastically different when it comes to the muscle memory of a traditional rifle design, I would've liked to see that proficiency reflected in the armament.
Anyways, the Mauraders stuff is BADASS. I've pledged for the three urban guys as I really dig that look. The Black Ops guys look pretty cool, but too similar to Snake Eyes for me to really bite.
Grabbed a Mike Power Atomic Man Kreo today. Goddamn...I love that Hasbro is doing Adventure Team stuff in the Kreo line. I hope GI Joe Kreo survives long enough to get Sea Adventurer and the black regular ol' Adventurer as well.
I want to steal the Night Ops' harnesses and put them on my Night Vipers. Then I'm going to put the Desert Ops' vests on the Night Ops and make a Night Fox squad, and THEN, hopefully, some of those stretch goals get met and I can put some tan armor on my now naked Desert Ops guys. I bet the Urban Ops would look fantastic with black vests.
The beauty of Night Ops is that his parts play well with the other figures. I'm not sure the desert parts would mix very well with the urban, but black goes with everything.
Those look fantastic
I'll buy that in the future
Wow, that looks fantastic! Hopefully Hasbro is paying attention!
