I can maybe give you a set of the arms if I have one...  They ain't black dudes though.  :(  Sorry man.  I'm thinking I have or had a set though, so let me know.

Toy Reviews / Re: 12" Boba Fett - VOTC

Don't see many 12" figures get praise these days.

I like the looks of the VOTC Fett, but I've really quit buying 12" figures in general, and on top of that I'm still just on a downer about Hasbro's general lack of quaity in the 12" line.  I got too pampered with Dragon's 1:6 line I guess, which is unmatched in this scale IMO.

Fett is cool, but I can't even sell my POTF2 one which is really similar.  :(

I cnsider her more a basic line figure, but I agree she needs redone definitely.  Softgoods cape, good or great articulation, an actually separate thermal detonator (Whoever said "hey, let's sculpt it in the hand" needs smacked), and that'd basically make me happy.

Of course, the chain (removable) for your VOTC Chewbacca would rock as well.  :)  And her rifle, but that goes without saying.

There's some that really impress though in the modern line.

For instance, the new Firefly sculpt ROCKS, and even has a working holster on his chest for a pistol.  If they'd paint him ala the vintage Firefly, THAT would be a kick ass figure. 

The new Alpine is sorta neat too, but again deco kills it.

One that rocks though, and has a good deco and redeco coming, is the "Cross Hair" figure.  WOW that's a cool guy.  The kinda figure that, as a kid, would've been my favorite Joe I used to pretend "I" am a G.I. Joe too... 

Their new Recondo's cool too, and even has extra articulation, but I was saddened they didn't try gooing with a retro looko at all (no tiger stripe camo, no boonie hat with side pinned up, no mustache).

The "Disco" Destro rocks too.  I saw people dump on that figure but Destro in kinda clubby clothes is a neat concept, and the sculpt's great.  I got mine with a riot gun and his double holsters with big ass .44 magnums is awesome looking.  THAT is a modern day Destro.

The last Cobra Commander sculpt's good too, and in the proper blue/red deco he's really a nice update to the timeless leader.

Yeah, that's why I edited...  That seems like a lotta photos, and I'm particular about what I interface with.

i had an 84, 88, 95 tbirds. my 95 v6 was just as fast as the mustang v6. I actually beat one in a race. I would imagine the v8 would be just as fast as the mustang v8


And the SC's just put standard 6's to shame.  It's incredible...  I love when people packing what they think's hot pull up along side you.  For all the pain in the ass that an SC is, what with maintenance and simply the fact it practically COVERS the entire engine on top making routine maintenance a bitch, it really makes the difference between going fast and being thrown into your seat on every gear selection. 

The LeBaron has a 4-Cylinder Turbo model I guess that's like a 4 speed...  I've never personally seen one but I'm told it itself is an impressively fast "little" car.  The engine's in Le Baron's are Mitsubishi's if I'm not mistaken.  They're a Japanese make at least I'm pretty sure, but the 4-cylinder I guess is domestic.

My T-Bird's kinda like the Falcon I figure...  Lotsa owners, and none who treated it that well.  Kinda ugly body wrk on the outside (and underneath) that makes it not "look like much", but it sure "has it where it counts".  :)  I just gotta get it looking pretty some day.  And really for what I paid ($1,000, and about $500 in to get it inspected, and most of that in a new windshield), I could probably recoup that cost alone by selling the SC...  Parting the rest of the car out would retain a tidy little profit, or so I'm told.  I just kinda hate to do so...  It's really actually quite nice.  :-\

After browsing the site, and just going with the assumption they're of legal age, then yes...

Yes I would.

EDIT: Though possibly not all...  Haven't even seen a fraction of what's at the site, but first image I saw was incredible.

Yeah, it's old to an extent...  Warranted...  Sorta fun still.  Old though.  I think it's more that people here have their reasons to KNOW he's viewing it, and that's why it continues more than anything else.

God knows you can't call him a ******bag at Scum when he does something you dn't like.  You can't even have a voice to constructively criticize really.

Happy B-Day Carrie, whever you may roam at this point. :)

The only sleeveless guys in the Nam line were white if I'm not mistaken.  Tanker was one of the ones I'm aware of, and the Tankers WERE available in a bagged 2-pack frm 21st's site (just called and they'd sell them to ya).

One was a tanker and one was a Platoon Leader I think, but both had just their flak vests on...  No black guys though, and the arm joints are the awkward angled joints of old unfortunately.

The Viet Cong and NVA neither one have remvable headgear if I'm not mistaken.  They were to just be very basic representations of generic enemies.  They suck in that aspect. :(

Also, none of these figures are especially cheap anymore I don't believe.  Nam stuff sorta took off after the line died at TRU unfortunately.  May wanna check around Ebay though, as you never know what you'll get.

I know there's guys clamring for it though.  I never bought into the Nam line myself.

Sorry for the lack of real help there. :( 

The only thing for Asian heads I can suggest are the Bespin Guard and Y-Wing Pilot from the 3-pack.  And I'm sure you're tired of using those 2 probably and that's why you asked.  :)

There's ONE major design flaw with the late 80 and 1990's T-Birds, and this may be an SC only issue, but I guess between the ground effects/body kit pieces and the actual body I guess they sprayed some kind of foam insulation to dampen road noise.

It absorbs water like a sponge though, and unfortunately these cars are prone to rotting inside out.  Mine's a victim of this and this is its only major flaw for a car with 158k+ miles on it.  Not bad when you think about it really, and this was a car I can certainly say was NOT well taken care of by previous owners but the engine and tranny hold up. 

A quick weld job and I'll be really set.  It's just a matter of me getting off my ass, taking out the whole interior, dropping the gas tank and transmission, and going to work on it.  My old man retired this past week and I think I'll have him to help me...  Maybe.  I know he isn't gonna want this in his garage forever though, so me working on it has been a matter of me having the time to devote to it.   :-\

It's a fun car though.  :)  Very ballsy.

Gotta admit that Snake Eyes in SNow gear's kinda cool though in that pack with the Eskimo!  :)  The Timber blows though.  Where's the mold for the original, ya know?  Using Order as the mold for Timber is terrible looking.

I haven't seen a standard Cobra Trooper figure since about '86 or so.

You sir missed the Cobra Forces 6-pack.

2 Non-Coms and 4 enlisted grunts, all with unique hair (eyebrow) colors and one is a black dude.  Very cool.  ALl using the oold molds though the heads look different I think. 

Anyway, a cool set.  Something Star Wars desperately needs at the same price with Stormtroopers and other figures as "ultimate" versions of them arise.
