Joe Defender / G.I. Joe Toys Thread

I don't like the green plastic that they are molded in. I don't understand why Hasbro could not have gone with black. I guess the same could apply to the COBRA Officer weapon with the silver plastic. They just stand out way too much and look funny. Regarding the .50 Cal, even though the original Roadblock had one, it's just not a sensible weapon for a soldier to carry around. Even if they could carry it, it's way too bulky, heavy, and powerful. The sculpts are great, though. Sorry about not being specific about that!

Picked up Battle Droids, Han Solo, and Luke Skywalker (Yavin) for $20 at TRU, along with a giant Death Star PEZ dispenser for $1.60.

   So far I've picked up all of the single figures and five-packs, and a second COBRA officer (I hope to get one more). I am loving this line.   
   The only flaws in the figures are the screws in the legs, hands, and weapons. Screws are fine with me, but detract from the overall appearance of the figures. My main gripe about the hands is the lack of a seperate trigger finger, but I fixed the problem with knife and several quick slices.
   Weapons are the worst part of these figures. Some are overall horrible (COBRA rifle), while others look funny and don't make sense(Flint's shotgun, Roadblock's .50 Cal) Scarlett's crossbow and Gung-Ho's Grenade launcher, while very cool, are way too fragile. I'm glad Marauder Inc. will be able to fix my weapon problems. Overall, this is a great line.

No 25th Anniversary Joes at my local Target, but I did see the new BBi figure line. The Abrams tank and Black Hawk are must haves, as well as the Humvee which I will most likely get on clearance.

After a long while of being tempted by these products, I am planning on placing an order to outfit my 25th Anniversary GI Joe figures. Here's what I am planning to buy for the Joes:
2 M16a2 Rifles with removable clips
1 Tactical Shotgun
1 UZI with silencer
2 M-4 Carbines
1 M60 Heavy Machine Gun
1 Modular M-4
1 Regular M-4
1 50 Caliber Sniper Rifle
And for the COBRA troops:
1 Dragonov Sniper Rifle
1 RPG
2 M249 SAW Machine Guns
6 AK-47/74 Rifles with removable clips

Can anyone offer opinions on these weapons or recommend other weapons that go nicely with GI Joe figures? Thanks!

Wow Daigo-Bah! Great work! You have really captured the dimly lit atmosphere of Jabba the Hutt's palace. There are way too many details to take in at once. The cracks, scratches and dents in the walls and floor look great. The carbonite block looks like a miniature movie replica. My favorite parts have to be the stands, fruits, pillows, and cups on the floor. Each of those pieces are extremely detailed and perfectly done. The animal heads are a very nice touch. The Water Buffalo head looks more like a sheep or bison to me and does not look at all like a water buffalo. Anyway, it's always a pleasure to look at your customs/dioramas and keep up the great work!

can't we just have a topless forum instead?

I strongly agree with this idea.

I placed an order on HTS.com for the Mc Obi and Yoda, so I'm done with exclusive figures for the year. The SDCC Exclusive Destro figure was tempting, but I passed. If it was the gold head variant, then I would've bought it.

I know I am a part of the younger crowd on these boards, but I say go for it. I know I wouldn't participate in it, but I think others on these boards would enjoy it. In my 1 1/2 years of being a member here, I cannot recall any instances of certain members having problems with other members. (By members I mean people who contribute to the forums regularly; not trolls, post padders, people who continually post one word in each post, and other annoying people) The Mods and Admins here are awesome, so I'm sure any problems caused elsewhere by this proposed forum can be fixed.

I dunno, this set just doesn't cut it for me. I am really starting to hate the troopers that Hasbro makes up (Purple Clones, most of Order 66, Shadow Troopers) so this set is an easy pass. Had this been a set with two AT-RTs with a normal paint scheme, two white AT-RT drivers, and an white SA #41 trooper, I'd happily plan to get two of them.

I saw the pictures of this set on GalacticHunter.com, and the two sets look very cool. The ARC Troopers and Commandos are welcome additions to the clone army, and the Mandalorians should look pretty cool behind Jango Fett. The head sculpts are not the greatest, but I can leave the helmets on. Overall, 14 good figures for a great price. Now I need to place a pre-order.

The price should be around $20 at Target and Wal-Mart, and $25 at Toys R Us.

I'm definitely going for three of these nice tanks. Between V-Wings, TIEs, Separatist Tanks, and these AT-APs, army building vehicles is going to get expensive.
