Watto's Junk Yard / Re: GI Joe Retaliation - The Movie
« on: December 14, 2011, 11:36 AM »
I will have to say, I was very disinterested in Jon Chu as a director when his resume up till "Retaliation" was Justin Bieber and a couple of "Step up" movies.  But hearing more and more about how he is a Joe Fan and his enthusiasm for it has won me over a bit.

I cringed every time during ROC the director and producers said they were going to "re-imagine" or "Twist" the joe Mythos.  Chu seemed to bring something from the 80's-90's era Joe that most of us know as much as possible.

So while I'm not expecting "Captain America" next summer, I am certainly not in fear of getting "Green Lantern"

Things I like in the Trailer:

The Hiss Tank
The Water Mocassin
That they MAY have killed off Duke
Cobra Soldiers look like soldiers and not Alien-Zombies with Turtle Armor.
No lips on Snake Eyes

Things I'm not excited about:
Storm Shadow seems to have the same costume from ROC.  I want my ninjas looking like ninjas.
Too many ninjas
They are going for an R rating or so the rumor goes and I don't personally think an R rated movie BASED on a Toy line with figures to Support it is the best plan.
The Joes are on the Run... how many storylines in the Joe-verse can they possibly have that revovle around them being "outlaws" or "Hunted"?

But all in all I want to go see it, I want to buy the toys and I have something to look forward to during Summer blockbuster season.

Didn't they kill off Storm Shadow in the last movie?

Heck almost killed the whole Franchise and 40 year plus Toy line....

I am ok with the trailer.   I have guarded optimism.

Yeah, the Packers are just flying under the radar... no national respect... why won't anyone take them seriously!?

Maybe if their QB would do a commercial or two people would know more about them.

Really like his work on MASH and Dragnet on TV....

Also like the movies "Support your Local Sheriff" and "Support your local Gunfighter".

RIP Sherman T. Potter

Ok Reallignment has passed the Board of Govenors (can't make the link work, I am posting from my iPad).

What are your thoughts?

I haven't read all of it, but I like Dallas not being in the Pacific (2 time zones away) and I dislike the top 4 teams from each division making the playoffs.

Dallas being moved will help viewership locally for sure. I'm sure it makes me not a true Hockey fan but it is just rough to start watching an away division game when the puck drops at 9:30pm or later.

Suh's antics and post game "excuse" are laughable. 

Somewhere James Harrison is happy... Roger Goddell has a new "Target".

Sorry I am late to the dog pile...

Finally saw the WalMart exclusive Thor figures.  MEH.

Still trying to find King Loki & Laufey though.  And also trying to find someone who might be interested in splitting a case of the Thor Deluxe figures.  Each case includes TWO Heimdalls.

What elese is in the case Nick?

Wow and I thought I was upset when Tech got rid of Mike Leach. 

The Vintage Collection / Re: 2011 "Vintage" Collection Wave 9

Echo base Trooper is GREAT, but that non-removable helmet is just a sad step backwards.

Usually I agree here.  But I am really growing tired of the removable helmet/hat that is poorly proportioned (too large) or the head is a pin head like Cody.  I'd rather they just include a regular head with the hat/helmet head.

I had hoped Major Derlin's head would fit as well, but alas it did not. 

Hmm, now that's a pretty slick idea.  But I don't feel like plunking down another $25, haha.

2 figures at $8 a piece
1 new Taun Taun for $9.

I'd say that is a pretty decent bargain considering my Target has a bunch of Prequel crap on Vintage cards hanging up waiting to go to the island of misfit toys. 

I didn't say I was gonna buy 10 of them...but I might.

Wow, if this was my REAL Job, I would be in serious trouble at home.  People need to order more from

The Han in this set is cool, yet disappointing.  THe back of his "skirt" on mine is WAY short.

Going back to get another set so I can swap the Han legs onto the Rebel so there can be a Rebel Scout.

Found this and the other exclusive clogging the Shelves this morning on an endcap.

Now to convince the staff that I have an important "conference call"....

OK Ryan....

GI Joe Club (

Is claiming they are going to offer a "Subscription Service" for 12 figures over the next 12 months (their claim, I am betting 8 figures in 24 months).

You sign up and you get them.  They are going to be figures that are not ever going to see retail, very obscure or don't fit the line.  They are going to be based on RAH/Foreign/Spy Troops/JvC etc.  But they will all be in  the 25th Styling.  Alot of reused parts with new heads or unreleased figs (Quarrel).

Now you can get a special 13th figure if your credit card does not decline at any time during the process...

It was announced about 10 months ago, was slated to start 6 months ago and probably won't get off the ground for 6 more months.

Oh and the figs break down to about $15 a piece after you pay shipping.  (and like me Tax)

The Topside figure looks really good, saw it in the case yesterday.
