Doc is indeed the best, as you would know if any of you bothered to read my award-nominated photonovel blog "Freedom Isn't Free."

Saw a couple of the new comic 2-packs today.  Wild Bill vs Scrap Iron was okay, but I was really impressed to see the Hard Master w/ Ninja Snake Eyes.

Just looking over some collection picks at Hiss....What's the dude's name all the way on the right with the black mask?  I remember having him as a kid and he had a pretty sleek little ride, but I'm drawing a blank.  Was he affiliated with the Dreadnocks or Iron Grenaiders?

Darklon?  I think he was Iron Grenadier...but can't say for certain.

That is indeed Darklon.  Check out this Yo Joe entry for pics.  And he is part of the Iron Grenadiers.

Oh, man...I'd forgotten about Alley Vipers.  Alley Vipers and their sweet urban orange and blue camo that enables them to blend in seamlessly with Denver Bronco fans.

Sweet!  I knew I was on the right track.  Hopefully Hasbro won't forget about him when they reboot the classic line.

Alley Viper was the last "G.I. Joe" figure I had in the late 80's before I moved on to better things - with boobies.  Looking forward to the updated 25th style version.   :)

Viper 5-pack

This would have been an easy purchase if Hasbro had used the corrected arms from the Viper in the upcoming Cobra 5-pack, but it didn't happen. While the removable helmet Viper is tempting, I just hate this figure as it is, and can't reward Hasbro's thinking on this pack.

Though they'll sell plenty, and won't care what I think.

Viper 5-pack

It's still a fantastic deal despite the ****** arms.  I have no clue why Hasbro can't pull this trick with stormtroopers or clones.

Hasbro does do it to a degree with Star Wars army builders, just not as much as I'd like to see.

As for the Viper 5-pack, easy pass for me.  I like my Cobra troopers the classic blue.

Sting Raider (no Ghost Hawk) & the final DVD set is up at HTS.  Any new codes?  $48.19 just seems a tad too high.

**smile8 - 10% off pre tax/shipping total.  Not the greatest, but these are the only two things I'm looking for right now outside of w12 so it'll save me some gas $.

Anyone know when that Arctic HISS is supposed to start shipping?  The snow in my yard is starting to melt....

An arctic Hiss?  That's cool...  is it special in any way other than color?  I always wanted a white HISS as a kid because Cobra really didn't have good snow vehicles, or many of them.

Nice, a tarp and a missle rack from the stinger...  And a cool looking driver.  Sucks those aren't coming out now.  That's a nice piece of armor.
