    I picked up the 25th anniversary Snake Eyes, Storm Shadow, and Cobra Commander today and would have gotten Flint and the Cobra Officer if either were fucking in stock. Honestly, at $4.88 it's probably the best deal I've ever gotten while attempting to reclaim my childhood.


    Damn, these have been tempting me lately. The packaging is pretty cool, and is definitely making it hard to look away when i go down the toy aisles. I haven't been sure if i should buy these or not though. Most of the characters they've re-released, i already own the first versions of. Plus i've got a box full of figures from like two other GI Joe relaunches that i never take out or look at anymore. So i'm just not sure if i should buy 'em. :(

    That being said...normally i say open your toys, without question. These though...i might leave 'em carded. Unless you already have someplace awesome to display them once they're opened.

    I really think I might just buy doubles and have the best of both worlds. Also, have you fucking read the card for Cobra Commander? The fact that they mention him kidnapping scientists was all I needed to declare him my favorite figure thus far.

    All I need for my life to be complete is Beachhead and Firefly, but I think I've only seen the sculpt for Beachhead and am not too sure about Firefly...

    ...as long as they don't make him look like a smug PR like the first Sigma 6 figure...

    he's even fucking holding his gun by the magazine like the original

    I really love the hell out of Hasbro right now.

    I just noticed that his pose is actually more like he's masturbating mischievously while plotting to replace the Skystriker fuel with acid.

    When i have to tell my wife that we're buying these, can i blame you? Because i can overlook their one tiny peg in the toy aisle, most of the time, but damn. That Firefly is awesome.

    Not when it should be, which is right fucking now.

    It's a wave 3 fig, so we're looking at the end of the year at the earliest. Since wave 1 just went retail, I have no way of judging how far apart the waves are gonna be, but considering that they already have up to wave 5 done I'd guess it'd be pretty damn frequent...maybe 1 1/2 - 2 months? Hasbro is pretty good with their shipping schedule, except when it comes to Transformers, so I'd hope for and expect an '07 release.

    Beachhead and Serpentor are in wave 2.

    Money will be spent.

    Holee shit. I just found a Holocaust figure in a tiny bin filled with mostly broken Batman toys at a local vintage clothing/records store. It was $1. I did not even know they made a Holocaust figure. Upon investigation it seems he was renamed Dark Nemesis for the toyline to avoid genocidal connotations. I'm going to go bust out my Blink, then up my efforts at finding and buying a Sugar Man figure. It's a 5" Age of Apocalypse reunion up in this bitch.

    Which brings me to my question. Anyone else on here still collect the old 5" Toy Biz stuff? You know, the super hero toys they used to make that stand up under their own power? :) I hadn't bought anything since the mid 90's at least, then a couple years ago at Christmas when we had just moved to the area, were dirt poor and jobless, my wife found and bought me a Fantastic Four Thanos at a local comic shop. Now i cannot stop collecting the old figures, and have been giving serious thought to selling off Marvel Legends figures to clear out shelf space.

    So, I went a little ebay crazy and expanded my DC SH collection finally. I'm only disappointed that Nightwing doesn't have articulated elbows. All I really want now is a Clayface, maybe a Bane and Batgirl.

    That's a pretty great set-up right there. Reminds me of my old "Apocalypse Wow" shelf i used to maintain. Theme displays are always nice. Since you seem to have the Age of Apocalypse stuff pretty much down, do you know if the Sugar Man figure is ridiculously hard to obtain? I know of a few places around me that have a lot of old Marvel toys in stock, but i don't think i've ever seen that one out and about. I prefer to buy stuff in person rather than online, but if he's ridiculously rare i may just have to break down and e-bay it or something.

    how dare you not post pictures and force me to look it up myself.

    I used to be, and I suppose still am, a rabid collector of the old Decipher Star Wars CCG. I was about 9 or so when I started so needless to say all my money went to the collection. The point of this story is that I pretty much only had Starfighter decks built around winning through sheer attrition (force drains are totally lame). My pride and joy of my main deck was the DS1 being guarded by the Avenger with the Saber Squadron and all the respective pilots.

    I refused to not use the Sabers in every deck I made.

    I refuse to not buy this.

    So instead of pick shit up for my Pyro costume, I got some Cobra figs from wave 2...which apparently came out the same time as wave 1...yeah.

    Serpentor is pretty shitty. His cape is cloth, so I guess that's neat, but that skirt thing makes his legs difficult to move and his boots do the same for the feet. He also has this incredibly worried look which strikes me as odd...y'know...evil superclone and all...

    Buzzer is so totally fucking cool. Like, I've always hated the Dreadnoks and this is probably my favorite I've picked up yet. His head doesn't move at all really, but the amount of articulation the chainsaw allows makes for some pretty rad poses. Oh, and the boxart makes him look like he has a chainsaw donger.

    After work and the movies tomorrow I'm gonna stop by Toys "R" Us and see if I can pick up the rest of the figs I don't have while trying to convince myself that I really don't need to drop the $40 on that Saber Interceptor...
