Wow those are lame!

I have a feeling the Armadillo rehash is just "extra" stuff Hasbro is adding to the line, like they did with Transformers.

KIf I see mole pods on clearance I'd kind of like them for something I wanted to do years ago...  Only for real cheap though.  Those things suck as Joe toys, but would make a decent base for little SW project.

Are you referring to the mole miner things that Thrawn steals from Lando in Heir to the Empire?

Nah, a fan fic idea...  Basically what bores out bases quickly for bases.  Hoth wasn't built in a day, but I bet it only took a couple weeks to whip up Echo base.

Probably on the Armadillo and that blue Ferret w/Scrap Iron, but the PITT is an underground Joe base from what I've heard so the mole thing kinda makes sense as an actual movie toy.  Transformers actually put out quite a few new molds for the movie that weren't straight repaints.  Here's the Terra-Viper's filecard

If you watch the trailer closely, there's a scene where something that looks like the drillbit end of that mole monstrosity chasing someone on a motorcycle.

As being reported on all sites - these two are up at Target.com, but not available and no price....We've still got a few months before the movie crap so I hope these hit soonish, but I doubt it.

Stinger looks pretty sweet...  Outback wasn't ever a Joe I was into much, possibly because he came so late in the line, but the artillery pieces Joe had always rocked.  I loved the dual gatling gun platform especially.  Nice to see those molds getting dusted off.  It'd be cool to see the Howitzer rolled out at some point.

I noticed that WM is now charging $12.88 for comic packs. Ouch.

Looks like some dude in TX found the Tiger Force Rattler and the Python Patrol Conquest today according to HISS.  There's piles and piles of the standard releases everywhere I go so I have no clue how long it's going to take to find these - obviously they share the same DPCI as the original releases.

New vehicles - in case you haven't seen them.  Dissapointed in the Night Raven as I knew I would be, but it doesn't look as bad as I thought...oh well.  Someday I will own the original.

Not posting new movie figure pics as I think they're just awful - though I'm sure you've seen them by now or will shortly.

I'm more of a fan of land vehicles, but the Night Raven looks quite a bit better than I thought it would.

The Cobra Hummer looks a bit odd.  I might get it though.

Thanks for the link to the movie vehicle pictures.

The Hummer looks like something from the Rescue Heroes line.  The Night Raven looks too short and is missing the Drone.  The rest are a pass too.  I hope the base/PITT is cool.
