Got my 3 MARS trooper 3 packs from HTS yesterday which came with a $5 off coupon that I wasn't expecting and the free Rubik's cube which I was expecting for a toys for tots bin.  Man - these are some cool figures.  No clue why these never showed up at retail and no clue why they didn't card these guys are repaint the hell out of them...I'd be all over that, I guess.  Turtle Vipers can suck it.

Those MARS troopers are cool.

I don't like the Neo Turtle Vipers either except for the black one that comes with the SNAKE Armor set.  That one looks cool in black, red and silver.

I just received my King Randor subscription order notification.  I passed on Green Goddess and Skeletor bonus figures.  I have the first Skeletor so I passed on this one.  I also passed on Green Goddess because I didn't want to pay for expensive shipping again.  Definitely sucks that they won't ship bonus figures with subscriptions. 

Next month my 2010 subscription starts and the whole decision about bonus figures starts again.  Not sure if I'll buy Battle Armor He-Man.  I'm going to pass on Beastman because I have the first one.  Then in February Battle Cat is a definite buy. 

Once Wonder Bread He-Man ships in Feb/March I'm going to try to cancel my subscription somehow.  That way I can buy bonus figures with the monthly figures.

...new plastic o-ring style...

I haven't picked up the new 1983 Snow Job repro yet.  What do you mean it has a new plastic o-ring?  Isn't it rubber?

I opened up the Surveillance Port and the plastic is very cheap compared to the original.  The blue plastic bends a lot but overall the set is cool still.

They shipped the subscriptions first this time.  I received Scareglow today and they shipped it out on Monday.  Last month they shipped the subs 1 week later.  Maybe the 1 week later scenario is what they're doing for non-sub orders this time.

The three SNAKE Armor sets I bought on Ebay haven't shown up yet but in the meantime I found 2 at Target today.  They are very cool and look awesome on display.

That Hoth Snowtrooper pack looks awesome.  I'll have to pick up a few of those.  I hope these hit retail in December like previous 2010 sometimes do.

Awesome news about the Alley Viper repaint.  

I put in an order for the custom remake of the Missile Mobile Command Headquarters.  I saw a prototype of the set at the 2008 Joecon in Frisco, TX and forgot all about it until today.  The set is profiled in the November Joecanuck.com newsletter and is available for order.  I have the original displayed but I would like to have a brand new one that is sturdier and not as easy to damage.

I highly recommend the Joecanuck monthly newsletter because it always a great read with a lot of great articles.  Much better than the Mastercollector GI Joe Club newsletter.

Sounds like Canada stores are getting a lot of the Target Wave 2 Deluxe sets.  Apparently they are clogging shelves up there.  Over on Hiss.com they found Serpents Armors, Python Rattlers and other Target exclusives at Zellers.  Maybe that's why they haven't been seen at all Targets.

The He-Man re-release has sold out.  I decided not to buy this because I have the first release.  Was tempted to buy another but passed.  Maybe someday they'll have another in a 2-pack.  I would have been more likely to buy this if I could include bonus figures iwith my subscription order to save the double shipping charge.

I did get a order confirmation for my sub. Scareglow last night so that should be coming soon.

Finally had enough checking Targets for that Snake Armor set.  Broke down and bought 2 on ebay by helping someone make a nice profit.  Hopefully, I find a bunch at clearance time to help offset the price of these two.  At least I'll save money in driving to Target.

So there was a third series of Combat Heroes?

WTF...I had no idea these even existed.  Anyone see them at retail?

John


I remember seeing them on ebay 2-3 months ago.  If I remember correctly this wave saw a limited release in Canada during the summer.

Found a couple cases of wave 4 at my local Aldi. $6.99 each. I helped myself to a Para-Viper and Kamakura, finishing wave 4 for me.

Thanks for the tip.  I have a couple Aldi stores nearby to check because I've never seen those in stores.  Can't wait to pick up Charbroil and Night Adder.
