They introduced these at Joecon by showing photoshopped figures.  During the 2009 Joecon Club Roundtable I think they said they considered ******* them but it wouldn't work/would be expensive.  Vaguely remember them saying this somewhere but I'm not sure.

The Battle Blitz looks cool.  I'm sure the AT version is going to be awesome.  I don't even remember this coming out in 2003.
Link in previous post incorrect.

Shout has an awesome box set of everything that they began selling last year.  They wanted $150+ at their Joecon table last year.  Amazon has it for $93.99 shipped.  I wish I could afford these right now.  I was hoping for a sale like this on these.

Also the TF G1 set is marked way down to $86.99 shipped.

The only place I ever saw the Kamakura/White Doctor wave was at Aldi last fall.

The yellow AT Gyrocopter/FANG is awesome.  They showed it for the first time at the 2009 Joecon Club panel.  They've had the copters made and in storage since last summer. 

I can't wait for Dr Venom and the rest of the sets.  They'll have them at Joecon in April.

I hoping to go but I'm not sure yet.  Probably going to wait until the last minute to send in my registration fax like last year.

I'm up in the air because I'm driving to the Canadian Joecon in August and not sure if I want to make 2 long trips.  After going to Hamilton last year I don't want to miss the one in Toronto this year.

I've been to every US Joecon since 2005 because once you go to one you are hooked.  It's fun to hang out with other fans, buy toys and travel.  The seminars are one of my favorite things.  Seeing and asking questions of Larry Hama and the 80s creators is the best.

It's never too late for ARAH toys. 

Be careful.  Once you repurchase all the stuff you had as a kid then you may expand from there.  That's what happened to me. 

Starting in 2001 I began buying the 1982-1986 toys that I had as a kid and sold off in 1988.  Then once that was complete I started army building.  Then while army building  I decided to buy the 1987-1992 toys that I didn't have and army building some of those as well.  I didn't have to buy 1993-2001 because I already had those but I did army build some of them. 

Finally, I started to go to Joecon starting in 2005 and buying those sets, older sets and other Club exclusives.  I even took it one step further and started buying foreign Joes.

I was thinking what cartoons I liked the best back then.

So far this year I've bought about 5 comic books a week and 2 1983 GI Joe die-cast vehicles.  I also bought MOTUC Adora and Battle Armor He-Man but sold those off.  I'm trying to buy as little as possible in order to afford a trip to Providence, RI for the Joecon and all the Red Shadow and other 3 3/4" figures/toys.

I've cut way back on MOTUC.  I was a completest until December when I skipped Green Goddess. 

Then in January I received the subscription Adora and bought Battle Armor He-Man.  However, before I received Adora and BA HM I read reviews and started to regret buying those two.  Once I received them I didn't even open the mailer to see what they looked like and instead promptly sold them on Ebay with my Zodak bonus figure.  I didn't break even but was glad to get rid of those three. 

Then this month I blocked Matty from charging my February Trap Jaw sub figure so hopefully they cancelled my subscription.  This probably means I won't get Wun-Dar and be out $20 but I feel relieved that I may be out of the 2010 subscription.  I was actually hoping that Wundar would ship in February before blocking Matty from charging me.

Next up I'm going to sell Randor and He-Ro and keep everything else from 2009.  I'll probably pick up Trap Jaw and Battle Cat later because those two are very cool.  I can live without Wun-Dar but would have liked to get one to sell to recoup some of the subscription/bonus extra shipping.

I believe the final 2 Cats of 7 were mistakenly added to his invoice.  Something happened and Digital River blessed him with 7 instead of 5.  At least I think that's what happened.

Did anyone use my promo code and if so did work? 

I'm really feel relieved that I skipped buying anything today.  Digital River and Mattycollector need to sell on ebay, amazon or something.  Those sites can take the beating.

Hopefully, that new Rage finally gets released.  They retooled the wheels and everything so hopefully they make it happen. 

Otherwise, the rest are ok and I'll probably pick up a few.  Most likely will pick up that frosty Destro.
