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

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

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.

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 EE.com.....

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 (gijoeclub.com)

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.

You guys are glossing over the big news...

The Squeeknie Battle guys.  We got a good 10 minutes of this stuff and a preview of the commercial and were told how exciting this new segment was for us.  They did assure us that this would not supplant the 3.75in line.

No removable helmet, but more articulation.

What additional articulation is this Vader supposed to have? From pictures it appears it's a straight repack of the TAC ANH Vader, with a new head sculpt.



If I had to guess it is Wrists like the DSII Luke and like many of the recent GI Joe figs have had. Possibly even Ball jointed hips but that is all that is left (except his "Toes" which is what someone said behind me at the Panel)

164
Will these also be "modified" re-releases with the new style card-backs? I don't think Hasbro truly understands the concept of a straight re-release, while the figure inside may be the same, if the cardback isn't the same (both front and back) then it's not a re-release and someone still looking for the figure, as it was originally released needs to keep looking.

At the Panel they stated that these would be Straight up Re-Releases, no changes on the card, no changes on the figures.
