    Both Slaughter’s Marauders Low-Light and Footlose cracked their thumbs with little use back in ‘89. It still hurts!

    Snake eyes from Amazon still says tomorrow. I expect it will be delayed. They moved Destro to June 24th.

    Yeah, the price point of Hot Toys would preclude almost everyone from being able to “collect them all,” so to speak. Not to mention the space issues it would create for anyone who dared to try. You could rule out almost any vehicles too.

    There's a guy at Amazon named Snake-eyes? Seems cool but off the mark if he is saying things... ... ... and working at Amazon.

    All my Hasbro items from Amazon that were supposed to be delivered today got pushed back for me.
    Scarlet now has a June 29-July 19 delivery date.
    Snake Eyes, no delivery date.

    Their service chat said this about SE:
    "We’re preparing this order, and it's on track for on-time delivery. Sound OK?"
    Followed by:
    "Looks like there isn’t a delivery date for this order yet. You can always check on its status by visiting Your Orders."

    This is pretty much why I avoid Amazon like the plague for preorders. I know Pulse or BBTS will get their product eventually and won't cancel on me, but with Amazon... every time they start changing release dates they eventually end up canceling my orders. And by the time they cancel my orders I can't get one in somewhere else and am left to scalpers.

    Same thing with my Snake Eyes order. No delivery date, and the e-mail said I had to approve the change or my order would be cancelled. But I'm going to keep it, because I couldn't find any Joes at Walmart or Target this morning, and HasbroPulse says they aren't shipping until July 1st anyway, with delays to be expected.

    Amazon just charged my card for Roadblock, Scarlett & Duke so hopefully that means the delay is shorter than expected.

    Edit: I just checked the order and they say “Shipping Now”.

    Well I am absolutely giving Snake Eyes a baseball bat now. Anything else would just be ridiculous.

    Punisher literally saving the toy industry once again. Seriously though I wanted that figure without knowing about the Uzi, now it's just icing on the cake.

    Hasbro could do three Drednoks three packs. Buzzer, Ripper, and Torch with three bikes, and Gawnagahyde, Monkeywrench, and Roadpig with three bikes, and the family three pack Zartan, Zarana, and Zandar preferably with color change skin.

    If you’re a 3.75 figure / JoeFan. Try a Zica Toy Sectaur figure. You have not seen a quality 3.75 figure like this before. It might actually kind of piss you off when you realize you could have had Joes like this. I thought I was done with 3.75, I am not.

    I looked at the two reviews and I would buy new G.I. Joe's if made this way. The metallic paint on that one piece is done well. Hasbro should either buy or copy this company and make a new joe line.

    I cannot adequately explain the quality. You can easily see the paint apps are flawless but the things just feel solid, solid and the joints are nice and tight and consistently even. All the joints feel the same. Which is like if you have one of these new Classified figures you know Hasbro can’t even pull off. Some things are tight, some are loose etc. You should get one just to experience it.
