Joe Defender / Re: GI Joe Retaliation - The Toys!

Ouch, I am by no means an articulation junkie, I can live without stuff like ankles and double knees, but yeah, the vehicle drivers are a bit much. It's a move I'd expect from a company like Mattel, not Hasbro. Seems they're cutting corners on all thier movie lines lately, the Transformers movie line seems to have shrunk and is 80% repaints now, Avengers lost POA's and now even Joe. If I were to theorize, I'd wager it's because they've taken hits on thier past movie lines, putting a bunch of money into fully articulated figures only for most of them to wind up on clearance. We'll have to wait and see if it affects the non movie line offerings that follow. Lets hope not, Joe is one of the few lines left that actually gives you pack in figs with the vehicles. They're the only reason I bothered with some of them.

Where is everyone getting that these are less articulated? Most of the pictures are too small to even tell, and the basic figures look like they've got all the standard points, except ankles in a few cases where shin guards would limit it anyway.

That episode was fun, I was on the edge of my seat wondering who was gonna survive. Stoked that plant guy made it through as I love the design. Hopefully he gets a figure some day.

I see they still haven't fired the person responsible for the case ratios.

I'm tempted, as I'm a sucker for good sculpts and they all have a nice bit of personality, but I'm probably going to stick with the smaller stuff for now. I just don't have the space, though I may make and exception for A-Listers that I'm missing, and any new Spider-man villains. Otherwise, gonna try to resist.

The old TMNT line was the first bunch of figures I collected religiously as a kid, so I am all over these. Here's hoping they do another series of the classics with Bebop, Rocksteady, Krang and all those other weirdos. Love it!

A very nice looking list if it turns out to be true. Stoked for Nien Nunb finally, I've been passing for years on the old ones thinking they'd be making a new one anytime, that was a good couple years ago, hehehe. My only gripe is that it seems Evazan is the last Cantina dude for some time. Was hoping for 1 or 2 more. Jabba's Palace seems nicely represented though.

Yeah, if that list is true then I'll be going the case route as well, for a couple of waves. I was really hoping this wave would have some good case mates mixed in. I look forward to confirmation at toyfair.

I plan on regenerating ala The Doctor, so I should be able to continue enjoying the collection for many centuries to come. Of course if that doesn't work, I've got two little boys, if they end up being as geeky as their old man then they're welcome to it.

Other Toy Lines / Re: 2012: What Are You Collecting?

I've got quite a lot going on collecting wise.

Star Wars - Pretty much TVC since Clone Wars is all but non existent this year. I'll buy what I like the look of, I'm not a completist.

Marvel - I'm enjoying the Universe line right now, picking up what I can find and what I like the look of. I may grab a Legend or two when they come back, but only the big guns. I'm also down for the movieverse stuff when that hits.

DC - I've got the sub, so 1 a month starting in April. Also gotta finish off the last two waves. Not too much going on for DC this year.

Transformers - Also pretty dry from what I've seen so far. I'll pick up any cool Generations stuff, and I'm down for a couple things from the movieverse and Prime, but not much more than a couple of items hold my interest. I'm attempting to back track and pick up some of the old Beast Wars stuff though.

Masters of the Universe - I've got the sub, so I'm all in. It's a fun line, and I'm really enjoying it and it looks to be a good line up this year.

Lego - Lego is the wild card for me this year. I picked up a couple Atlantis sets for 50% off after x-mas and it kind of broke the flood gates on me. Lego is just so much more fun than all those figures I fiddle with for a few minutes and stick on the shelf, so I'm down for pretty much whatever looks cool and I can afford, looking forward to some Star Wars, Marvel/DC, Lord of the Rings, City and the upcoming Monster Hunters stuff.

So thats it for me, a lot of categories, but many of them are pretty slim pickings this year. It'll mostly be Star Wars, Masters and Lego.

I can probably get passed the height issue, depending on if he's as gummy as his predecessors. For those that have him, how is the plastic quality? Does this one actually hold together pretty well?

In cases like the really nice yet boring type figures, waiting for the inevitable sales is probably the best bet, especially with the first wave of a series, which usually ends up pegwarming to some degree as it's usually over saturated, and the kiddies aren't exactly clamoring for Daulty Dofine. If Hasbro can get their case assortments a little bit better this year, then there's really no reason you shouldn't be able to score everything for a decent price with a little patience. There aren't too many figures these days that I have a "must have right this second" mentality on (minus the really cool aliens like Bom Vimdin and such) and Ive managed to get practically everything during 2011's run at a fair price.

Yeah, I was actually really shocked when the shot was fired, kind of did a double take there. I didn't think they'd do it either.

This was a phenomenal series of episodes and the ending did not disappoint me. Did anyone else get goosebumps  with Krells "it's treason then" line? Nice throwback to ol Palps. I was very pleased that Krell wasn't some double agent or something, just a horribly arrogant and disillusioned jedi who wanted to change sides. I also think that Krell surviving well makes sense in the context of order 66. He saw them coming after all, he was on the defensive, while the Jedi in ROTS had no reason to suspect that the clones would start shooting them at any given time, especially in the middle of a battle. I suspect they would not have gone down so easily if they hadn't been surprised.

  Great set of eps though, I love the clones, clone centric eps rarely disappoint. They managed to take these faceless armored guys from the prequels and make each one unique in their own way, they have a lot of depth for being "identical" and it's great. It just further makes me want this show to eventually do an order 66 episode. See whats going through their minds while their blowing away their former comrades, wee them wrestle with it. My only let down was the sort of abrupt ending, it would have been nice to have the jedi discussing what the hell went wrong with this guy and how they didn't notice that this guy was such a maniac. But other than that, great. A+

It would be nice if this new Battle Droid was capable of holding his blaster with both hands, like they all do in the movie. We haven't had a battle droid capable of that since the ROTS line i don't think. As for Quadrinaros, I think he's hilarious. Hasbro took this goofy, stupid character and made him look so unbelievably blood thirsty. Look at those red eyes and that sinister grin, he looks like he's gonna rip someone a new one and enjoy every second of it.
