Joe Defender / Re: GI Joe - The Black Series?

30th Anniversary style would rule.  Cobra Troopers galore... Ultimate Cobra Commander.. Storm Shadow...other classic characters... I'd be in... so would my son.

I don't think Hasbro has helped their own cause much, but I do agree with nearly everything you said, Jesse.

Yeah if I made a list of the "I want to......"'s I'd have one hell of a long list.  I have a ton of things on the table all the time.  Rarely much time to finish them.  I've had my Turbo Tank torn apart since I bought it.  I should put it back together till I'm finally ready, as I really just needed to see it apart first.

I was able to get a 3rd one last night - $39.00 was fine.  If I ever get around to customizing it I'll share pics.  My version would be a relic though of one during the OT era... some sort of battlefield graveyard.

And thanks to my local buddy Jim, I now have an MTT for $31 which I intend to customize into a more believable vehicle for the size...  Something of a Squad level transport, or even maybe just basically a "cargo truck" type of vehicle. 

I like the idea of a squad-size armored vehicle for the Separatists that would be sent into urban environments though.  Smaller, easier to maneuver, maybe a little zippier.  Maybe a little bit of a defense upward towards higher levels of buildings?  I have some ideas anyway.

Either way, for $31 it's tough to pass up any vehicle this large.

I'd love to see pics when you do this... I know projects like that take a long time though - I have ideas I've been toiling around with for years but haven't started on yet.

I've got two of these that I paid much more for, and am hesitant to customize one for some reason.  If I can score one on the cheap though, it could make for a great project this summer.

Picked up Vizam and Merumeru at WM this morning. Guess my area just skipped wave 2 entirely.

Hopefully Wave 2 gets skipped... If not, Waves 3 and later might not really get distributed until Fall at this rate.

I dunno, seems to me that in Fall 2015 would be a weird time to release a big item from Rebels... Seems by October-ish it will be Ep7 time for the toy focus.

Ah, ok - thanks.

I think I've seen this a time or two in the past (I believe back in 2010 because I remember seeing armies of TVC 4-LOM and Dengar for $9.99 at some Target stores, $10.99 at others - or something like that), but not to this detail.  I was never able to see any real correlation with which stores had higher pricing than others.

Jeff, do you see a connection with the higher pricing being in more affluent areas?

Yeah, that's why I'm not betting they'll do anything about it.  I wish we had gotten something into DePriest's hands a year earlier. Not that it means it would have made a difference, but the timing certainly would have been better.

Great figures, and good case assortments.  Definitely worthy of buying a case online.

I fear there could be a retail pegwarmer here in Toryn Farr, and Dack.  I think those would have been okay at 1 each per case.  But at least both are really good figures.

Looks like also DePriest feels that the helmets are oversized for the phase 2 clones... which makes me very happy. I hope that his comments to JTA really mean that something will be done about it.  I'm not holding my breath, but do have some optimism here.

To the segment of collectors out there claiming this was a bad Toy Fair, I couldn't disagree more. If you take the foreknowledge of the entire list of product scrubbed from Hasbro's database out of the equation, this show had a ton of reveals. I can't say I'm disappointed with anything other than the huge x-wing "sibling maimer" or the Command line and the fact that there was no reveal of The Ghost or female SWR action figures.

I thought this was much more promising too - I can't say I was blown away, but it wasn't too much of a letdown.  Compared to 2013's Toy Fair event, this was night and day.

From what I've seen, Five Below stores blow through the TVC stuff so fast, it's insane... they are the only place that can more the TPM carry forwards... they do get stuck with some Qui Gons but I am hoping now after yet another sell-through with more Malgus cases, they are eager to get later waves of TVC.  I'm betting they will.

Just how long could wildlife that dont live in the ground on in the ground survive. Animals would need rest but these walkers never have to stop

I think that wildlife would actually thrive in this type of scenario.  Less roadkill, less human intervention with their habitats, less hunting, etc... and walkers are generally slow and stupid... smaller animals have to be hard for them to catch.  I can't imagine them often being able to catch rabbits, squirrels, etc.

As for the walkers never having to stop, in the comics there is evidence that eventually they "run out of gas."  I'm a bit behind in the comics to see if this was really explained in much detail.

Maybe she comes into contact with our good friend Phillip?

Or ends up with a role in the spinoff series.
